Back to basics: Tips to apply blush for round face shape

Blush is the unsung hero of makeup. Why? Because just a single swipe of blush can brighten up your face and make you look more fresh and youthful in an instant.

However, there are a few key things that one needs to keep in mind when applying blush. The most important one being, your face shape. From experience, we know that a round face shape proves to be the trickiest because you’d want to use the blush in such a way that it doubles up as contour. Doing so will help add length and dimension to a round face.

If you’re wondering how to do this, then we are going to give you some simple tips to keep in mind while applying blush on a round face.


Tip #01: Placement is key

Tip #03: Steer clear from shimmer

If applied strategically, blush can make a round face appear more chiselled. Start by applying blush a little lower than the apples of your cheeks and extend it up, towards the hairline. This will help your face look more lifted and angular.


Tip #02: Blending is essential

Tip #03: Steer clear from shimmer

Once you apply blush on the apples of the cheek, it’s necessary to blend it upwards and outwards for a more natural finish. Also, avoid blending the blush towards your nose as this can make your face look rounder.

When you want to give your face a chiselled and contoured appearance, it is best to avoid using shimmery blushes. This is because shimmer particles reflect light and make your cheeks look rounder (something you definitely don’t want). Hence, it’s best to stick to a matte formula.
