Finding the ideal blush application tips that match up your face shape can be difficult! I didn't wear blush for the longest time because I had absolutely no idea how to put it on my face! Well girls, I've compiled all of the top blush application tips that will match your face shape perfectly! So girls, you ready to figure out exactly what blush application tips you need for your face shape? I am!
1. Round Face
So, this is what my face shape is. It's completely round and when I was looking up blush application tips for every face shape, I found that the round face actually needs to be slenderized. What you do is actually apply your blush in a sideways V along your cheekbones and blend upward. This will give you the illusion that your cheeks are much thinner than they might be!
2. Oval Face
Oh you oval-faced girls out there, you have one of the best faces because it is all even proportionally. For this blush application tip, you actually want to use your fingertips and locate the most prominent part of your cheek. Once that is done, blend upwards, toward your temples to really highlight your cheeks.
3. Square Face
For a square shaped face, one of the objectives for you is to make your face softer. This blush application tip is pretty easy to do – all you need to is apply your blush to the apples of your cheeks and blend upwards. This will create a sweeping motion. You also want to dab a little bit of blush on your forehead as well as your chin. This will soften up the square angle of your jawline!
4. Diamond Face
Now, the diamond shape is similar to the triangle face shape, the forehead might just be a little bit more pronounced. This blush application tip is all about drawing attention away from your forehead and really focusing in on the rest of your face. Apply the blush along your upper cheekbones, blending very well! Once you get up to your temple, draw the blush in along your forehead to pull some attention away from it!
5. Heart-Shaped Face
I think that heart-shaped faces are so, so pretty! Reese Witherspoon has this face shape and she is beautiful! What you want to do for your blush though is actually dab a bit along the underside of your cheekbones, all the way up to your ears. Always make sure that you are using your blush brush in an upwards motion and blend in circles.
6. Rectangular Face
Now, if you have a rectangular face, you want to make sure that you are applying your blush below the outer corners of your eyes. Now, be careful, you want to blend extremely well to make sure that the motions you are putting in look natural. You want to make sure that the blush never extends lower than the tip of your nose. This will make your face appear softer.
7. Triangle Face
When you have a triangle face, typically you have a very wide forehead and then a smaller chin. To get some attention off of your forehead, this blush application tip is all about using your blush brush and applying your blush in a sideways V along your cheekbones. You want to blend all the way up to your temple and then even blush a bit over your brow, toward the center of your forehead!
