So a few posts back we covered How to Find Your Face Shape in 4 Steps, and now we’re going to go over where it’s best to apply blush for your face shape, we’ll also talk about types of blush, and picking the right color for your skin tone.
- Round; to thin the face, apply blush to the apples of your cheeks at a slight angle
- Square; to soften the angles, apply blush to the apple of your cheeks, and blend
- Heart; to soften the chin, apply blush to the lower part of the apples of your cheek
- Long; to widen the face, apply the blush on the apples of your cheeks and extend toward the ear (not up to the temple) to create the illusion of width.
- Oval; to get a natural look, simply apply blush to the apples of your cheeks
Types of Blush
- Powder; works great for almost all skin types, and has the most color choices out there, and it’s the easiest to blend
- Cream; is awesome for dry skin as its leaves a dewy finish
- Pencils; are great for the purse, but they are best left for normal to dry skin
- Gel & Cheek Tints; blending is a bit of a hassle, and it gives the skin a sheer color
- Cream to Powder; you apply it like a cream but it dries to a powder finish, best for dry skin
- Pot Blush; is easy to blend and gives the skin a sheer color
- HD Blush; is great because you can use it for both Cheek and Lips and it’s long lasting
Picking the Right Color Blush
Blush is to highlight your cheeks not take from it, remember that and you won’t go wrong.
- For my light skinned babies out there, light fresh colors work best and adds a soft look to the face, also try some oranges and tawny colors for some bold looks
- For my Medium skinned vixens’, you can get away with a lot of colors, and the skies the limit so don’t be afraid to try something other than pink, also try added some gold shimmer, or eyeshadows to the apples of your cheeks to brighten your face and add some glow
- For my lovely Dark skinned beauties, you may have to apply more product, but hey we can wear and get away with pretty much any color
Also, peach tones work wonders for almost all skin tones, so if you still have issues finding a color stay safe with peach tones, or just go crazy and try something wild and fun!
