Blush can contour a face to perfect proportions, bringing out the very best in your features. To find the technique that’s right for you, all you have to do is determine your face shape.
Oval shapes are the most versatile. You need to apply blush only to the apples of your cheeks for a rosier complexion. Think of it as highlighting your natural skin tone rather than contouring your face.
To widen a long, narrow face, brush a brighter blush on apples of cheeks and extend color straight towards ears. This angle gives the appearance of a rounder cheek.
Bright colors on the apples of cheeks help smooth angles on a square face. Brush up and out toward temples to lengthen the face, while adding a dusting along the jaw line to soften.
To soften and widen the point of your chin, apply blush to the lower part of the apples of your cheeks. To broaden your face, blend a highlighter or lighter shade around the chin and along the jawbone.
