How to Apply Blush for Your Face Shape

Using blush is a great way to add colour to your skin but it can also reshape and define features of your face. Check out these techniques to help you find out different methods of applying blusher for your face shape.

To slim a round face, try blending your blush upwards from your usual blusher upwards from your cheeks into your hairline. Then highlight along your cheekbones using a highlighting blush, and use a bronzer or darker blush in the hollows of your cheeks.

To soften a square face, concentrate your blush in a circle on the rounded parts of your cheeks. Apply shader (bronzer or darker blush) into the hollows of your cheeks and also lightly on the square edges of your chin. Lightly dust highlighter on to the bridge of your nose and across the tip of your chin.


To balance a heart shaped face, dust your blush slightly lower than your cheekbones into the actual hollows of your cheeks. Dust some highlighter on to the tip of your chin, and apply shader to your temples. Make sure that you blend it well into your hairline.
