Firstly, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Styl-Lish readers! Hope everyone is in good spirits and enjoying time with loved ones and friends that bring them joy! 


For the second installation of the West Vs. East make up analysis is the subject of blush, or blusher! Its application can make the cheeks look quite rosy and adds in a little colour as well. In the west, we tend to apply blush to the apples of cheeks,  or hollow of cheek for a throwback 80s style . Its generally done softer to be able to blend and not be so stark. There are also some instances where the blush is a darker bronze colour than a red, orange or pink depending on our skin tone.

In the East, I have noticed that their blush tends to be sweeped almost directly under the eyes than on the apples of the cheek. It also is applied a little on the heavy side, showing off the rosy cheeked look.
