I don’t think there are any truly right ways to apply blush, but there are ways to get the most rosy glow from your blush and better ways to accentuate your cheeks/cheekbones based on your face shape.
How do you apply blush for your face shape – Check out these tips/ideas:
If you have a long face shape, apply blush to the apples of your cheeks and blend out towards your temples.
If you have an oval face shape, apply blush to the apples of your cheeks and blend with a blush brush.
If you have a round face shape, you can get a slimming effect by applying your blush in an angular motion from the apples of your cheeks to your temples.
If you have a square face shape (with a stronger jawline), apply your blush with a linear motion a few inches from the sides of your nose.
If you have a heart shape face, apply blush along the bottom of your cheekbones (similar to the way you would add contour).
My best advice is to find a blush you like (check out some of my faves below) and experiment… maybe ask a good friend what she thinks.
