It seems rather obvious, right? My cheeks, I hear you say? Well, you’re right but what if I was to say you could contour your cheeks just by using your blush? When applied correctly, blusher can really help create definition. Read on to find out more.
First things first: determine your face shape. Is your face shape long, round, square, oval or more of a heart shape?
Find your face shape and the correct technique and see if it helps. Practice makes perfect and the key is to blend – no harsh lines. Remember it’s all about creating a natural flushed look with subtle definition.
🙂 L O N G: Apply your blusher horizontally – so start at the apple of your cheeks and work towards your ear. This will make your face appear wider.
🙂 S Q U A R E: Apply blusher on the apples of your cheeks and blend to soften the angles of your face and bring the attention to the roundest part of your face.
🙂 H E A R T – S H A P E: Apply blusher slightly lower than your cheekbones and blend upwards. This will soften your prominent chin.
🙂 R O U N D: Apply blusher along your cheekbones and blend upwards towards your temples. This will add definition. Be careful not to get any blusher below your cheekbones or close to your nose as this will emphasise the roundness of your face. Avoid applying blusher on the apples of your cheeks for the same reason.
🙂 O V A L: Apply blusher on the apple of your cheeks and blend towards your temples. This will really bring out your cheekbones.
