Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush Achiote Application

I would normally apply the blusher with makeup brush and I prefer to have light blush. I apply this by swirling my brush onto the blusher, gently pat in the middle of my cheeks with a smile and blend them in. Because I have oblong face, I tend to blend the blusher vertically across to shorten my facial feature.
