1. You use the wrong brush. 

When the brush is too small, it might create defined circles on your cheeks that are hard to blend. Use one that's specifically created for blush application to evenly deposit the color.

2. You smile while applying it.

That trick of smiling while applying blush is outdated. Doing so brings down the face because the cheeks naturally go low when you return to your resting face. 

3. You use an unflattering shade.

The most natural-looking shade would be the color you get after a workout or a long walk. Plus, take note of your undertone to make sure that the hue can work with your Pinay complexion. Your foolproof bet? A coral-pink blush.

4. You're too lazy to blend.

Again, your blush need not to be obvious. It should just be a subtle flush, so blending to make the harsh lines disappear is a must. 

5. You sweep it on the whole cheek.

You'll look like someone just slapped you! Do it the right way: With a light hand, gently sweep the brush on the apples of your cheeks (Don't smile, okay?) going upwards where your temple is located.
