Blush Application Tips for Different Face Shapes
No matter what blush color you are using, use your face shape as a guide for how to apply your blush
You’ve chosen your blush; now learn how to apply it! These blush application tips for different face shapes will ensure that you are getting the most beneficial coverage from your blush. First, learn which face shape you fall into, get your blush, and get ready to have gorgeous, flushed cheeks.
Blush Application Tip One: Oval Face
This face type typically does not need any contouring at all since the natural slope of the face already provides a perfect plane to apply blush. For a natural look, apply blush onto the apples of your cheeks for a flushed, healthy glow. If you are going out for a night on the town, add slightly more blush to the bridge of your nose for extra color.
Blush Application Tip One: Square Face
For this face shape, soften the angles of cheeks by concentrating the brighter color of the blush on the apples of the cheeks, then sweep the color straight out towards your temples. This will give your face a natural lift. If you want to round the corners of your jawline, lightly dust some blush from your chin to just below your ears.
Blush Application Tip One: Round Face
Start applying blush to the area just above the apples of your cheeks and slightly blend forward to thin the face. Make sure not to get blush too close to your nose; otherwise, the extra color will highlight the rounded area of the cheeks. Next, dust the contour shade just below the cheekbone down to the jawline and blend the color so it looks natural.
Blush Application Tip One: Long Face
To create the illusion of width on a long-shaped face, apply blush to the apples of the cheeks and extend the color outward towards your ears. Next, sweep your blush across the middle of your forehead and along your chin line.
