Hey, you! Did you know that there are various other ways to apply your favorite blush, depending on your face shape? Because just a few swipes of blush can make your complexion look healthier, and make your skin look more youthful. It’s not as simple as a swirl on your cheeks. So, stop applying your blush the same exact way makeup gurus do in their YouTube tutorials, and keep scrolling to learn how you can apply blush correctly.
Here’s a chart to let you know which one’s the best blush for your face shape:
Square face shape
Your cheekbones are the same width as your chin, so apply your blush slightly below the cheekbone to help define them. Blush in the hairline will help soften the edges of your face.
Triangle face shape
Blush should be applied in a sideways V on the cheekbones. Blend up from your cheekbones to your temple and then extend the blush over your brow a bit toward the center of your forehead. This will help to balance the width of your forehead with the rest of your face.
Oval face shape
Sweep your blush over your cheekbones. You can easily find your cheekbone with your fingers – aim to place the colour just above the bone rather than towards the hollow beneath it to help raise the height of your cheekbone.
Round face shape
Try not to use pearlized or highly reflective blushers, as these reflect the light well and make a surface appear more round, which we want to avoid – matte blushers would be best for you. Sweep your blush from the ear down the cheekbone towards the mouth.
Heart face shape
To make your face appear less pointy, we need to soften the edges so it appears more like an oval. Apply blush to the outer corner of your cheekbone, starting by your ear and ending at a point below the outer corner of your eye.
Oblong face shape
Apply blush on cheekbones below the outer corners of the eyes and blend well. Be sure the blush never extends lower than the tip of the nose. This will help shorten your features.
Now, go and BLUSH, BRUSH, SWOOOSH! 😉
