"Cheek color shouldn't be limited to the apples (no one blushes only on their cheeks). I always blend a bit into the hairline, along the jawbone, and on the tip of the nose to create a more natural-looking, all-over hint of color."François Nars, Founder and Creative Director of NARS Cosmetics
"When it comes to blush, how and where you apply it is more important than what color you use."François Nars
"Find the apples of the cheeks by placing two fingers on the high points of the cheekbones. Start with a light-handed application and build to your desired intensity."François Nars
