We’re sure you’re accustomed to applying blush to the apples of your cheeks to add warmth and dimension to the face. But if you’ve never worn blush on your nose, it’s definitely the key that you’re missing in creating a flawless base


Applying blush to your nose creates a totally natural, sun-kissed complexion for all skin tones. If you’re ready to give the trend a try for yourself, follow the steps below to achieve a makeup look featuring a dusting of blush on your nose.


1. Prime Your Face

As you should know by now, a perfect makeup look always starts with a makeup primer. This will help smooth out your complexion while increasing the lifespan of your makeup. Apply the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Makeup Lock Primer to your face to prep for the rest of your makeup and give your complexion a radiant boost.


2. Even Out Your Complexion

Next, you’ll want to give yourself a smooth complexion to serve as the base for your makeup look. Use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender to buff out the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Up to 24HR Fresh Wear Foundation, Lightweight, which will give your skin a natural finish. It offers buildable coverage, so you can make your skin look as flawless as you’d like.

3. Bring Out The Blush

It’s time for the star of your look — blush. There are two popular ways to apply blush on your nose for a natural, flushed appearance. First, you can opt to sweep the blush over the bridge of your nose, in addition to the apples of your cheeks. Or,  you can apply your blush to the tip of your nose. 


Start with a powder or cream blush, like the L’Oréal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Blush or the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Radiant Satin Blush with Camellia Oil, and sweep it onto your nose and cheeks.


Prefer a liquid blush? Lucky for you, a liquid formula will work amazingly for this look, too. Grab the L’Oréal Paris Glow Paradise Lip and Cheek Tint and dab a pea-size amount to the tops of your cheekbones and over the bridge of your nose, then blend it in with your fingers. This will create a naturally sun-kissed effect.


4. Enhance Your Eyes

While you have your blush out, use an eyeshadow brush to apply a bit of powder blush in your crease. That little bit of blush will give your eyes a subtle pop while complementing the color on your nose.


5. Add Some Highlight

Nothing goes better with a flushed complexion than a radiant glow. Use your fingers to apply the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer onto your cheekbones, Cupid’s bow, and tip of your nose.


6. Set Your Look

Last but not least, you’ll want to set your base makeup to ensure your hard work doesn’t go to waste. Spritz the L’Oréal Paris Pro-Spray and Set Make-Up Oil-Free Setting Spray over your face for a smudge-proof, satin finish.
