Tutorial: How to Apply Blush & Bronzer

My friend QQ left a message & asked me to make blush/bronzer tutorial, she's actually my senior back in college so I'd better do it *hai, senpai QQ :)* -bowing- LOL

I know although some of you must know this like the back of your hands, I just want to show how I do it, and it's far from perfect, plus this pic tutorial is super ghetto -_-"

Ok so I start with a primed face (concealer + foundation), on this tut I am using EDM Spring Concealer and Buff'd Saffron Foundation which is now a tad too light for me, I think I've tanned *sigh*. I am still purging too so please bare with small bumps on my skin. DON'T SCRUTINIZE, ladies....hehehehe

These are the tools:
La Femme Soft Beige & Mulberry, Essence of Beauty Angle Brush, Silk Naturals Fiber Optic Brush

I started of with Bronzer to contour my cheekbones, this technique is best known with its 'slimming' effect which, of course, I wouldn't mind to have :D

I used Soft Beige with Angle Brush. I usually make a fish face to find hollow of my cheeks which is under my cheek bone. Sweep the brush with the bronzer start from outter corner (near my ear) moving downwards, I normally stop before the corner of my lip.
After that I buff the harsh line so it doesn't look like an obvious brown mark, with circular motion. This is how it should look like:
(eww my hair LOL)

another cheek:

Moving on, the blush. I use the blush on apple of my cheeks. How to find it? Try to smile (or FAKE a smile, just like I did below) and you'll see two obvious round shape on your cheeks.
I look like a pervert for some reason

The final result with Bronzer + Blush, again excuse the ew-ness of my hair.

The proud blush-ho peace sign LOL
Sorry girls, I just had to do it.
A good way to rock a band-aid on my finger too, right?
Alright, that's it : ) Finally I look NORMAL after applying some mascaras & wearing my hair down...
this is not a very good pic of me, but it does show the blush & bronzer contouring result

Thanx for reading !
