Where Should I Put My Blusher?

Of course on your cheeks, but where exactly? Check out these tips.

How to apply your blusher

OVAL FACE

“Stick to powder and apply to the apples of the cheeks and up towards the ear for dramatic look,” says make-up artist Lee Pycroft. “Almost anything goes with this shape, but paler shades are more flattering,” says Mel Arter, Max Factor make-up artist. “A soft, small brush helps powder go on mess-free and it should always be applied to dry skin, not oily.”

SQUARE FACE

“To soften the angles of your face, run it along the apples of your cheeks, but quite high up, rather than the hollows of your cheeks,” says Lee. “Harsh tones will add to the angular look of the face, so stick to subtle shades,” says Lee. “Creamy textures help to illuminate the cheekbones without creating harsh lines.”

HEART-SHAPED FACE

“Create a boomerang shape, starting on the apples of the cheeks and finishing at the outer forehead to soften the width,” says Lee. “Use a neutral shade at the top of the boomerang shape and a brighter cream blush on the apples,” says Lee. “This illuminates the centre of the face, detracting from the wider forehead.”

ROUND FACE

“To sculpt the face, apply perfectly along the cheekbones and in the hollows of your cheeks,” says Mel. “Suck in your cheeks as you apply and use a small brush,” advises Mel. “This will help to contour and avoid creating a hard line.”
