Skip the Blush
Sometimes, it is OK to skip blush and just go ahead with contouring and highlighting. According to Tyra Banks, it’s only when you feel and look really crappy and tired do you actually take all the makeup you have and put them all on your face (primer, concealor, blush, shading powder, eyeshadow, mascara, eyeliner, lip colour, lip gloss, shimmer… etc).
On normal days though, not everyone looks that distressed. Shading and highlighting without blush serves to add definition to your already in-the-pink-of-health complexion.
