It is amazing how fast a rosy glow on your cheeks can make you look beautiful and healthy. Naturally, rosy looks are difficult to get, but using a face blush can bring about an instant change. Applying blush the right way according to your face shape can make all the difference. It accentuates your best features and gives your face more definition. Now you may ask how you should apply your face blush? Here is a simple three-step guide to making it easier for you.
1# Begin by Observing your Face Shape
|Face Shape||Distinguishing features|
|OVAL FACE||Prominent cheekbones with forehead slightly wider than the chin|
|HEART-SHAPED FACE||Wide forehead with high cheekbones, tapering to a narrow chin|
|SQUARE FACE||The forehead is roughly the same width as the cheekbones and chin|
|ROUND FACE||The width and length of the face are almost the same|
|LONG FACE||The length of the face is more than the width|
|TRIANGULAR FACE||Narrow and pointed chin with high cheekbones|
2# Select Your Blush
Makeup products are often criticised for their detrimental effects on the skin. So while selecting your face blush, opt for one with natural ingredients that will soothe your skin. Whatever shade of blush you choose, if it blends effectively, the end result will look natural.
To get an intense, long-lasting colour, and harness the benefits of natural antioxidants like Japanese sakura and Vitamin E, try Lotus Makeup Proedit Silk Touch Blush Highlighter Duo. This two-in-one product has a blush and a highlighter – a perfect combo to accentuate your look! It will illuminate the skin and give your cheeks a gorgeous colour and a natural glow.
3# Apply Your Blush
|Face Shape||Application Technique|
|HEART FACE SHAPE||To soften the margins of your face, start at your ear and end just below the outside corner of your eye. Next, apply blush to your cheekbone’s outer corner. A touch of colour near the centre of your forehead will balance the width of your forehead with your chin.|
|LONG FACE||Apply blush to the cheekbones and blend well. Make sure your blush does not go below the tip of your nose. This will assist you in reducing the length of your features.|
|OVAL FACE SHAPE||Dab the face blush on your cheeks. Dab some colour directly above the bone rather than the hollow below it to boost the prominence of your cheekbone.|
|SQUARE FACE SHAPE||Since your cheekbones are the same width as your chin, apply your blush slightly below the cheekbone to further define them.|
|TRIANGLE FACE SHAPE||Apply the blush in a V-shaped motion on the cheekbones. Blend from your cheekbones to your temples, then a little over your brow to the centre of your forehead. This will help balance your forehead’s width with the rest of your face.|
|ROUND FACE SHAPE||A round face needs both highlighter and blush to add more definition. Consider using a fine powder blush highlighter duo to accentuate the cheekbones. For blush, begin from ear to cheekbone, finishing at the mouth. Apply a dab of blush to the chin and blend well to make your face appear longer.|
While applying face blush may look simple—and it is with practice—finding the right way to apply it to fit your face shape takes time and effort. So, keep trying until you ace it.
Have fun blushing!
