Blush: How to Apply


Tips to Flatter your Face Shape

People think blush is simple. They apply the blush with a small brush to their cheeks. This works on a basic level but you can do much more. Blush can be used strategically to improve bone structure. However, it is important to know how to apply it to your face.

First, find the perfect shade of blush

First, choose the right shade of blush to match your skin tone. Peach, light coral and soft pink are the best blush shades for skin types that are fair to light. If your skin has pink undertones, the pink will give you a natural look. The peach tones will add color to your skin. The peach tones will look natural if your skin has warm undertones.

A deeper shade of blush is best for people with medium skin tones. For those with pink undertones, you should choose pink shades. Peach is for adding color and natural look.

People with dark skin should also consider blushing in deep Fuschia or tangerine, raspberry, berry, and warm brown. Fuschia and berry shades are natural for people with cool skin tones. Tangerine and warm brown work well on those with warmer undertones.

When choosing a blush shade, consider your skin’s undertone. It will look natural if you choose a blush shade that matches your skin’s undertone. If you prefer a bold look, you can use the opposite color. Warm blushes are brown, peach and coral. Cool colors include berry, pink, raisin and Fuschia. Mauve, a neutral shade, is the best choice. After you have selected your color, it is important to consider your face shape.

Blush to Flatter a Heart-Shaped face

The heart-shaped face has prominent cheekbones and a long, angular shape. It also has a narrow, square chin. This face should be covered with a blush brush to remove any excess blush. To apply blush, you will use a “c”.

Start by tracing your brush towards your temple starting at your cheekbone. Apply more blush to your cheekbones, and let it fade as you reach the temple. Blend it well to ensure that the blush does not reach beyond your cheekbones. This will make your cheekbones pop and draw attention to your eyes.

Blush to Flatter an Oblong Head

An oblong face is one where the forehead, cheeks and jawline are all the same width. It’s similar to a rectangle. Apply your blush starting at the apple or center of your cheek. You should move in a circular motion and blend your blush towards your temples and towards your nose.

Your cheekbones should not be highlighted. This will make your face look more bare-faced. Your goal should be to draw attention to your temples so that they flatter your whole face and give them some shape.

Blush to Flatter a Square Face

A square face will have straight sides and a flat jawline. Blush is used to soften your face’s angles. Cover your cheekbones by starting at the corner and working your way towards your hairline.

Move your blush from the lower side of the cheekbone to the upper side. Move your brush towards your nose, starting at your eyebrows. Blend as you go. This should create a subtle effect. This method allows you to soften your square face shape.

Blush to Flatter a Round Face

If you have a round face, your cheeks will be the most prominent feature. To apply blush, look in the mirror. Smile. Next, start at the center of your cheeks and work your way towards your temples and earlobes. It is important to not touch your nose as this will make your face look even more rounder.

You will highlight your bone structure by sweeping the blush towards your earlobes. This flatters a round face.

Blush to Flatter an Oval Face

An oval face has a long face with a narrow forehead and narrow chin. You want to draw attention to your bottom half of the face to give it definition. Start with your strongest cheekbone, blend towards your earlobes and then use blush. Blend your blush from your cheekbones towards your temples.

This will help to frame your eyes and highlight your cheekbones. It also makes your face appear more defined.

How to determine the shape of your face

It can be difficult to determine the shape of your face because everyone is different. Start by standing in front a mirror. Begin by looking at the largest part of your face. If your cheeks, jaws and forehead are equal in length, your face may be round, square, or oval. Your forehead should be wider than your face. This is a sign that you have a heart-shaped facial shape.

Examine your jaw. Your jaw should be rounded if you have an oval or round face. A square jaw indicates that your face is square. A heart-shaped face is one with a slightly pointed jaw.

Next, take a look at your entire face. Imagine drawing a line from your nose to your chin and one from your ear to the next. Your face will be round if these lines are equal. If it is longer than it is wide, it could be of any shape. To determine the shape of your face, you need to take into account all this information.

Common Mistakes to Avoid

There are certain mistakes you should avoid, regardless of your face shape. Different shapes of faces look great with blush applied above or below the cheekbones. However, it is best to never apply it below your cheekbones.

Blend your blush carefully. It will leave you with pink-colored or peach-colored streaks if you don’t blend the blush. After applying the blush, make sure you blend it with a blending tool. If your face is round, blend it away from your nose. This will increase the roundness of your facial features.

Last words

Blush can improve the shape of your skin and highlight the best features. Make sure you pick the right blush shade and blend it to your face.
