Where do you apply blusher?

World's Best Blush Trick

Jeni Lee, the makeup artist who keeps stars like Salma Hayek and Denise Richards flawlessy flushed, gives these tips for getting the most natural glow.
1. Start by looking straight into the mirror and placing your finger on your cheek bone right under the outer edge of your eye's iris. That's where you should begin applying color.
2. On that spot, place a large, soft brush dipped in a blush that's slightly darker than your skin tone - like the flush you get if you pinch your cheeks - for the most true-to-you effect.
3. Sweep color straight back -not up- toward ear.

I love this trick! It prevents '11's' or racing stripes as we in the industry call them. Also carrying a lighter truer blush on the apple then following with deeper color related to the blush(two blush colors total)toward your ear help the face look more contoured without looking muddy.
