Nowadays every one of us is expected to look presentable every single time we step outside, especially when we have someone important or new to meet or even an interview. Some of us might choose to use a lot of heavy makeup to cover up those freckles and marks that we all tend to have, others would like to keep it simple with less makeup. In this context, using the right blush is essential to your makeup routine. Blush palettes are always the preferred choice, as they are more economical and offer several colours and shades at once.
To create a sophisticated look, try on some peach blush with a matte nude lipstick, to get the trending ‘No makeup – makeup look’. Of course, you can simply brush a pink blush across the cheeks, a mode regularly employed.
Accentuate your cheeks with a blush according to the shape of your face by following this detailed guide.
Apply Blush According To Your Face Shape
1. Oval shaped face
If your face is oval shaped, feel free to experiment in any way with blush. We would recommend that you highlight your cheekbones, by starting off at the middle of the apple of your cheeks, and sweeping the brush toward the temples.
2. Round shaped face
If you have a lovely round-shaped face, apply blush on your cheeks, by adding some definition and structure to your face shape, by accentuating your cheekbones. If your cheekbones are not visible, you could suck in your cheeks and brush in some blush colour at 45-degree angle.
3. Square shaped face
You could soften your jawline, if you have a square face shape, by applying blush in small circles, with more focus on the apple of your cheeks. This trick will make your face look fuller and rounder, by taking the emphasis away from the jawline.
4. Heart shaped face
Those beauties with heart-shaped faces have to apply face blush in circles around the apples of the cheeks too, and end the strokes by slightly moving the brush upwards towards the temple.
5. Rectangle shaped face
To create the illusion of width, by balancing out the natural length of your face, try out horizontal strokes of blush on face, and blending it smoothly at the end of the application, for the pop of colour to look as natural as possible. For this method, it is recommended to use subtle and simple colours, instead of bright shades.
How to choose the colour of your blush?
Blush, for all face shapes, looks better when the colour is one-tone darker than the cheekbones, accentuating the natural glow of your face and giving you a flushed appearance. If the colour is too bright, or if the area of application is too large, it could give you an undesirable look. The trick of the trade is to hold the application brush at a slight angle, such that only a part of it meets your cheek at a time. The lighter and closer to your skin tone the colour of the blush is, the more natural and blended it would look. Experiment with varied shades and styles, to seek the best option for yourself.
Pro Tip: In case you end up overdoing the colour, all you have to do is pat it in a paper napkin, until the paper absorbs the unnecessary colour and you get just what you want!
