Applying blush is probably the easiest step in face makeup. But there’s more to it than you think. In reality, if you use it more strategically, blush can be unbelievably flattering to your bone structure. Once you get to know the perfect ‘how to apply blush‘ technique, you’ll never go back to the traditional way again.
Here’s our ultimate ‘how to apply blush’ guide according to your face shape:
- Oval Face
Oval faces have pronounced cheeks, a narrower chin, and a narrow forehead. While applying blush, make soft and gentle strokes down towards the earlobe and blend up towards the temple. This technique will add a radiant glow and accentuate your cheekbones like nothing else.
- Round Face
Cheeks are the fullest part of a round face and normally have a curved jawline. So, the question is how to use blush on a round face to highlight your cheekbones? Use a blusher stick to apply to the apples of your cheeks. Brush up towards the temple and bring it down to the earlobe. The SERY Cosmetics’ blusher stick blends perfectly to add a natural flush of color and on-the-go radiance.
- Square Face
Square faces have cheekbones the same width as their jaw, so add the blush slightly below the cheekbone to make them look distinct. Sweep the blusher stick across the cheekbone to the higher side with long and light movements, beginning low and rising upwards. Pull the blush down the nose from the eyebrow gently. Lastly, blush in the hairline to soften your face’s edges.
- Heart Face
For a heart shaped face, smoothen the edges of your face so that it looks more like an oval because your face may look pointy. Start with your ear and stop at a point below the outer corner of your eye. Then glide a blusher stick to the outer corner of your cheekbone. To better align the width of your forehead with your chin, add a touch of color to your temples.
