Apply blush tutorial

I firmly believe in the power of blush, and that it is a vital part of any makeup routine. The proper application of blush is like an instant face lift and brings a warmth and brightness to the face that no other type of product can.

But if your not sure how to apply blush correctly, it can go south real quick. Here are the things you need to know to apply blush in the most flattering way for your face shape.




The Classic Application- all face shapes
  • Gives and a natural flush of color, works with all blush colors (including brights!)
  • Apply an oval brush stroke over the cheekbone, stopping under the center of the eye
  • Use a loose domed brush for easy blending like the Real Techniques Domed Brush


The Rosy Glow- long, oval or oblong face shapes
  • Visually cuts the face in half, to shorten and widen. Best with light peaches and pinks
  • Apply with a dabbing techniques on the apples of your cheeks
  • Use a stippling brush for tapping and blending like the Real Techniques Stippling Brush

Highlight Application- oval or heart face shapes
  • Emphasizes the eyes and give an upward lift to the face. Works with lighter shimmer tones
  • Sweep tone on the top of the cheekbones, up towards the temples
  • Use a fan brush to easily work around the eye like the It Cosmetics Fan Brush


Sculpt Technique- round or square face shapes
  • Chisel out cheekbones and create a more angular face. Use brown/ beige based blushes
  • Sweep blush under the cheekbone from the ear forward, stopping below the center of the eye
  • Use an angled brush to help define the cheekbone and make the face appear more narrow, like the Sonia Kashuk Angled Brush
