What To Do If You’ve Applied Too Much Blush

If you’ve applied too much blush, we’ve got you covered. These are the best tricks to fix your complexion without starting over. Adding too much blush can happen to the best of us. Some blushes are packed full of pigment, and this isn’t a great thing when you’re heavy-handed with the blush brush. But there are ways to cover this mistake, and quick!

First, grab your powder brush. With whatever is left on your brush, buff the powder into the cheeks. This will mask the pigment of the blush, while still blending the product into the skin with your same powder shade. This works best with colored powder, but a translucent powder will do the trick, just not as dramatically.

If you’ve applied a tiny bit too much, you can just take a clean fluffy brush and blend it out. This works just like blending an eyeshadow does. Simply buff it out.

Another trick is to add a bit of bronzer over the blush. This will blend the contour, blush, and bronzer together while minimizing the pigment of the blush. We love a bronzey blush anyway.
