Using the proper blush color for your face shape will create the illusion of a rosier complexion and a more even skin tone. You should begin by applying a soft color to the cheekbone area and then blend upward towards the nose and temples. Avoid highlighting the cheekbone area and instead apply the blush to the outer edges of your cheekbone, from the brow to the hairline. You can also apply blush to your eyelids and lips.
The first thing to do is determine your face shape. The most basic rule of thumb is that if your face is round, you should apply blush on your chin, rather than your cheekbones. A square face is generally broad and angular, with a wide forehead and a narrower jawline. To create a more feminine look, use a soft, rose-colored blush on your cheekbones.
The next step in applying blush is determining your face shape. Your face is classified as either heart-shaped or oval-shaped. A heart-shaped face has a higher forehead and narrower jawline than a round face, which makes it appear more pointy. If you have a long-faced face, it’s best to apply blush on your cheekbones in a vertical line towards your ear. Do not start applying blush on the tip of your nose or under your cheekbone.
