The Best Blush Technique For Your Face Shape
America Ferrara makes her round face look more defined with the right brush strokes.

The way you apply your blush can dramatically alter the overall appearance of your face. A few strategic strokes can make full cheeks look thinner, hallow cheeks look healthier, or soften some sharp angles. Wondering what the most flattering blush technique is for you? Find your face shape below, then get the dish on how to makeover your own blush routine.

Face shape: Heart
Most flattering blush technique: Blend the blush over the lower part of the apple of your cheeks. This will help soften a pointy chin and fill out a narrow jaw area.

Face shape: Round
Most flattering blush technique: Sweep your blush under your cheekbones and up towards your temples. This will maximize your cheekbones and minimize the fullness of your face.

Face shape: Square
Most flattering blush technique: Swirl the blush in circular motions on top of the apples of your cheeks. This will downplay an angular bone structure and soften harsh lines.

Face shape: Long
Most flattering blush technique: Apply the blush on the outer apples of your cheeks, then sweep it straight back to your ears while blending very well to avoid a stripy effect. This will give your face a wider appearance.
