How to Apply Blush for an Oval Face:

If you’re one with an oval face then you’re a lucky one! With the most flattering natural cheekbones, you should follow the shape of them from the middle of your apples till the outside of your eye; but make sure to not to go too far reaching your temples. Be sure to always blend it in well and since your facial features are balanced, there is not need to apply blush any lower.

How to Apply Blush for a Round Face:

A round face is always a cute one and the main aim when applying blush to a round face is to slim it down but maintain its cuteness. So let’s get started to give some definition to your face shape by beginning right under the middle of your eye on your cheekbone and brushing upwards. Follow your cheekbones from an up to down motion from your temples back to you cheekbones and blend it in.

Make it easier by sucking in your cheeks as much as you can and following the shape and not too close to the nose.

How to Apply Blush for a Heart Shaped Face:

Let’s show a little heart shape loving! Since in a heart shaped face, the top half is heavier than the bottom, we need to use the blush to even it out.  To make your cheeks look fuller, apply the blush on the apples of your cheeks and blend it into the hollows below.

Heart shaped faces have very prominent chins, so make sure you apply the blush slightly under your cheekbones and brush upwards.

How to Apply Blush for a Square Face:

Girls with square shaped faces have very sharp features and while applying blush you would want to take the eye away from the sharp jaw line. To elongate and give an illusion of a rounder, fuller face, focus more on the apples of your cheeks and color them in. Then use the brush in a linear motion from little away from the nose and outward.
