Blush application is the easiest way to add dimension back to your face after you applied foundation. If done correctly, you can create much needed depth and even sculpt your face. Applied incorrectly, you can easily add 10 lbs to your face in seconds.  Let’s breakdown application by face type:

Round Face
If your face is round, more than likely you will want a more sculpted look. If you add blush to the apples (the highest point) of your cheeks, you will instantly add more weight to your face. Why? The color will create a “shadow” effect, creating more dimension on the widest part of your face…which is the total OPPOSITE of what you want. Instead of the apples of your cheeks, apply the blush following your cheek bones, in a 45 degree angle.


Oval Face

This is the most ideal face type due to its symmetrical nature. To get the most flattering look from your blush, you will need to use our cheekbones as a guide for product placement. Use your fingers to feel around your cheek until you have found the most prominent part of your cheekbone. Usually, this will be slightly below the apples of your cheek, about half an inch away from your nose. Apply the blush from that point in an arc, or crescent moon shape up towards your hairline.

Long Face
Someone with a long face wants to add or create the illusion of width. To achieve this, apply blush directly to the apples of the cheeks and extend the blush outward towards your ears. Next, sweep your blush across the middle of your forehead and along your chin line. This effect will shorten your long face.

Square Face

Soften the angles of your cheeks by applying the brighter color blush on the apples of the cheeks then sweep the blush towards your temples. This causes the eye to look up, taking away from the sharp angles of a square face shape. You can also contour to round your jaw line, by lightly dusting some blush from your chin to just below your ears.
Well thats all folks!
