This week’s Gorgeous Giveaway will really give you a kick. We have 3 Napoleon Perdis 3-Piece Makeup Kits (a $75 value) with lip plumper, blush, and mascara, all held in a bright red makeup case decorated with a jaunty black and white ribbon.

The case is a real charmer, and something that will just make you smile every time you bring it out of your bag. Inside, you will find:

  • Napoleon Perdis Cheek to Chic Blush Duo with a wake up your face pink, and a subtle by day, shimmering coral.
  • Napoleon Perdis Love Bit Lip Plumber in Passion, a deep rosy pink.
  • Napoleon Perdis Madame Curl Curl Mascara in black, which features a curved eye-enhancing brush.

This beauty giveaway could not be cuter, and will set you up for a spring fling, date, or night on the town with style.

    I like to apply a natural flush to the apples of my cheeks.

    I apply blush to the apples of my cheeks and then blend upwards to give a nice rosy glow!

  3. njf288 Says:

    I purse my lips and brush along the apple of my cheek

  4. rollingstone24 Says:

    I like to smile and use fingers to smooth into apples of my cheeks!


    Grand sweep gives a natural look

    Grand sweep.

  7. bloomover50 Says:

    I like to sweep blush over cheeks if powder. If cream blush I dot it on and then blend.

  8. ThenCaliSays Says:

    Depends on what look I am going for. I love the grand sweep for my everyday natural look, I go for the dolly when I am contouring more.

  9. kzupancic Says:

    I use a circular buffing motion with a kabuki brush…works great!

  10. Eustacia Says:

    I like a grand sweep and then blend in well

  11. GQ Says:

    My favorite way to apply blush is grand sweep.


    Smiling and applying to the apple of my cheeks

  13. candes Says:

    I sweep back and forth in a rush at red lights… LOL…

  14. Kennedei Says:

    My favorite way to apply blush is the Grand Sweep with an angled contour/blush brush. I do this because it blends well with my bronzer and gives me a seamless natural look.

  15. miriama59 Says:

    Apple of the cheeks. It’s what I was taught by a makeup person years ago.

  16. anissa23 Says:

    I use the Figure eight

  17. Antonina Gladkova Says:

    sometimes i apply the blush on top of my lipstick! it gives you a matchy feeling)))

  18. redfuzzycow Says:

    i stipple it onto the apples of my cheeks

  19. southerngirl Says:

    I apply my blush in the Grand Sweep way; and then add a little bit extra to my cheekbones if the blush is a light enough shade.

  20. BlackAsphodel Says:

    I apply it with circular sweeps with less pressure on the edges to make it fade out.


    Grand sweep is my go to look

  22. FJP82075 Says:

    I do it the old fashioned way … suck in my cheeks & apply to the apple of my cheeks. I think this looks the most natural.

  23. onegreatsmile Says:

    I’m a ‘just a touch’ girl. Sweep on the bronzer in the E pattern and then lightly dust a teeny amount just on the outer edge of my apples. Too close to my nose makes my long face look longer!!

  24. mom23kidozz Says:

    brush along the apple of my cheek

  25. Kat Says:

    A grand sweep!


    Grand sweep

  27. windycindy Says:

    Hi, I would love to try Napoleon Perdis
    makeup! Most of the time, I apply my blush
    with a brush, from the upper part of my cheeks
    and around, up to the forehead…
    Many thanks, Cindi

  28. lindabr100 Says:

    Grand sweep because thets the way I learned many years ago.


    Grand sweep is great for evenings

  30. helobuff Says:

    I use a blush brush for the powder and a wedge to use as a contour. If it’s a cream I use a wedge along the indent and then blend well upward to the high cheekbone in my cheeks.

  31. dragonfly777 Says:

    High on the apples of cheeks, blended up toward temples. Too low looks bad on me.


    Apply to apple of cheeks for natural look

  33. poordaddy Says:

    I use one blush for my cheek bones and a darker one for a line under the 1st blush. Then I use a cotton cloth to smooth it out. Looks natural and makes my cheek bones stand out more.
    Thank you for the chance to win this !!
