Step 3: Apply blush blink blink✨ Here I use peach orange color to lightly brush on the cheeks:> Remember to blend it evenly, otherwise it will look messy :))

Step 4: Use a darker color to impress the cheeks, just make it darker a little bit, not too much:> Brush the nose and collarbone for more vibrancy.

Step 5: Shade the dark areas covered by the hair and chin. Here I use 2 colors blue and purple to shade these areas, first get purple to paint over the place to be shaded, then use a little blue to blend.
