Here are the best places to apply blush for you face shape

Oval faces

If you have an oval face, apply blush to the tops of your cheekbones. Blend it out towards your ears and fade it slightly down to your cheeks. This gives a more natural look and also highlights your cheekbones.

Long faces

People with long faces want to make their faces look shorter, right? Applying blush across your face will make it look shorter. Start at the apples of your cheeks and blend out towards your ears and temples.

Round faces

Similar to a long face, people with a round face want to make their faces appear slimmer. Avoid too much product on the apples of your cheek, as this will draw attention there. Instead, apply the blush in an angle on the tops of your cheekbones and towards your temples.

Square faces

If you have a square face, applying blush to the apples of your cheek and blending out towards your ear softens features. This gives a natural ‘lift’ to your face.

Heart/diamond faces

These types of face shapes have narrow chins. The goal is to draw attention to the bottom half of the face by applying blush to the bottom of your cheekbones and blending outwards.
