Round Shaped Face

With round faces, you want to try and elongate your face, so basically you are sucking in your cheeks. To do that, apply blush under your cheekbones, in an up and down motion towards your temple. Do not apply blush to the apples of your cheeks, as that will make your face appear more round.

Heart face shapes

For heart face shapes, you may want to follow the instructions for square face shapes, but bring your blush slightly up towards your cheekbones. Keep this very slight though – the focus should still be on the fleshy part of the apples of your cheeks.

Long Shaped Face

When applying blush to a long shaped face, you want to break up your face a bit, to give off the illusion that it is not that long. Apply blush from the apples of your cheekbones, in an angled vertical line towards your ears. Make sure the blush does not start from below the tip of the nose.

Oval shaped face

Oval shaped faces are considered to be the most appealing as they pull off styles very easily – be it hairstyle, eyebrow shape or even blush strokes! If you are one of the lucky women to have an oval face shape, all you need to do is dash a color on your cheeks. Take a fluffy brush and add some color on the apple of your cheeks, now slowly sweep it up towards the temple. Blend the blush to you are sorted!

Tips on applying blush
