Makeup Technique: Blush on Application

Blush can instantly add life to your face, on any given day, if your complexion seems a little dull. There are various techniques for applying blush and they depend on a person’s face shape. Certain blush techniques compliment certain face shapes, at Beauty Hooked we’re sharing with you which techniques would suit which face shape, so you can determine which blush technique suits your face shape.

 

 

Classic Blush On

A Classic blush-on is applied on the top of your cheekbones.

Technique

You begin from your hairline and then blend it towards the apples of your cheeks in an inward motion.

The movement of the Blush brush should be in a shape of the digit 8.

You can also apply the blush with the curved angle of a beauty blender

Further blend with the flat part of the beauty blender sponge.

Face Shape

It suits ALL face shapes.

Result

Natural blush result.

 

 

Healthy Glow Blush On

To get a healthy glow, just add a tiny pop of color to the apple of your cheeks.

Technique 

Apply the blush on the apple of your cheeks in a circular motion.

Face Shape

It Suits Long faces, as it gives the illusion of having a wider face by cutting the length of the face.

It Suits Triangular faces, as the upper part of the face is reduced to enhance the lower part of the face.

Result

Natural Fresh defined Face without contouring.

 

 

Highlighter Blush

A highlighter blush just adds a pop of shimmer to your face.

 

Technique

The product should be applied to the upper cheekbones (make sure not to apply under the eyes) and then blended towards the temples.

Face Shape

It Suits, Pyramid face shapes by reducing the jawline width.

Result
