How to Apply Blush
Blush, makeup’s unsung hero, instantly renders you less tired looking, more polished. Brush up on how to get it right.
Where to Apply It
Blush creates an optical illusion, drawing the eye wherever you dust it on. The best place to put it depends on the shape
of your face.
To slim a round face: Sweep it along your cheekbones (suck in your cheeks to locate them) and extend the color out to your temples.
To balance a heart-shaped face: Apply blush below the apples (the meatiest parts) of your cheeks and blend out to your hairline.
To soften a long face: Blend blush beneath your apples, but not out to your temples.
