How to Apply Blush according to Your Face Shape


Blush is every girl’s/woman’s favorite product. It instantly awakens and enhances the complexion of your face with a healthy, youthful flush of color on your cheeks. For some people applying blush may seem fairly simple but in reality, it can be quite a tricky process especially when it involves different bone structures. But not to worry we have got you covered. Here’s our guide for how to apply blush according to your face shape.

Oval faces

This face shape has prominent cheekbones, a narrow chin, and a narrow forehead. So, on this face shape apply blush by starting at the most prominent part of the cheekbone then bring it down towards the earlobe and blend up towards the temple.

Heart-shaped faces

This face shape has a wide forehead and high cheekbones, and the face tapers to a narrow chin. On this face, apply blush in a “C” shape from the top of the temple down to the cheekbone and then diffuse it up towards the temple in an upward motion.

Square faces

This face shape has a forehead, cheekbones, and chin of the same width. On this face, apply blush on the cheekbone from the corner of the brow to the hairline. With your blush brush start low then gradually move upwards. To softly blend the blush further, pull blush from the eyebrow down to the nose.

Round faces

This face shape has wide but long face structures. They have full cheeks and curved jawlines.  The best way to apply blush on this by smiling in the mirror and use small soft strokes to swipe blush on the apple of your cheeks. Blend the blush by brushing up the blush towards the temple and down towards the earlobe.

Oblong faces

These face shapes are longer and less wide than square or oval faces. The forehead, cheeks, and jawline will all be at the same width. To apply blush on this face shape, start from the most prominent part that is the apple of the cheek, and then blend towards the nose, then bringing it out towards the temple.
