Blushing beauty: Applying blush for your face shape
Blushing beauty: Applying blush for your face shape

Times have evolved and so should your blush application techniques. There is so much more to applying blush than creating rosy dots on the apples of your cheeks. If that is the general technique you’re still using, stop. Immediately. Step away from your makeup box and keep reading for perfect blush application tips.


You need to skilfully apply blush that will complement the shape of your face. Just like with contouring, blush application is an art that can create a more natural-looking appeal that elevates your look. Discard blanket approaches and equip yourself with trendy blush makeup tips that are handpicked just for you.


Long Face

The blush tutorial for long face shapes can be contained in one simple rule. First, apply blush on the apples of your cheeks and then gently blend out the shade towards the temples. To get the most out of your look, use the oil-free, dermatologically tested Maybelline Master Blush in Peach Pop for a natural glow.


Oval Face

The blush application tutorial for oval faces may seem overly simplistic but it works to enhance your best features. If you have an oval face, apply blush to the apples of your cheeks and integrate the colour with an angled blush brush. The trick is in the way you apply it and what you apply. We cannot give enough thumbs up to the delightful radiant shades of NYX Professional Makeup Sweet Cheeks Blush Palette.


Round face

Blush can help make a round face appear slimmer. If you have a round-shaped face, you need to stay far away from the notorious “rosy dots” on cheeks. Rather apply your blush in in a somewhat “triangular” motion that blends from the apples of the cheeks toward the temple. The multi-dimensional contour enhancing NYX Professional Makeup Ombre Blush in Soft Flush works a treat.


Square face

If you have a square face, you need to think of a rectangular shape when applying blush. This helps to soften a strong jawline. The blush tutorial, in this case, is to apply your blush in a somewhat linear motion, including the whole cheekbone. Leave some room on the sides of your nose and sweep the blush up towards your hairline. Break the barriers by applying the vegan Urban Decay Afterglow Longwear Blush in Fetish. It will last a full 8 hours.


Blush can, and should, enhance your natural beauty. It is a makeup staple that experts swear by for a complete radiant look. We see it as a power tool to unleash the glowing goddess in you.
