Everyone knows what blush is, and a lot of us use it every morning. But do you know the different methods to apply it, and to obtain the result you want ? I wrote this post to show you the 3 main technics to apply blush, as well as the final result and the face shapes they are perfect for.
In circle, on the apples of the cheeks
Smile and apply your blush on the apple of the cheek. A malicious effect, and you will look like you just had a big bowl of fresh air. This is the most natural technic.
Perfect for a square or thin face.
In an oblong shape, in the hollow of the cheeks
Apply your blush just under the cheekbone, in the hollow of the cheek, and go up and down with your brush. This is the most popular technic, and it’s great to slim your face and give it some relief.
Perfect for a round or wide face.
In a bow, on the temples
Draw a “C” while applying your blush : start at the top of the cheekbone, under the outer corner of the eye, and go up the temples. This technic allows you to brighten and to give a healthy glow to a tired face.
If you messed up…
If you put to much blush on your face, no need to take all of your makeup off. Simply wipe your skin with a cotton pad – without product – to get rid of the blush, and start again !
