Are you applying your blush correctly?


“Of course I am!”, we here you say. What could ever make you think such a thing?

Well, did you know that where you apply your blush should be based on your face shape?

Most of us aren’t professional make up artists so how could we know this?

Well let’s take a look at how to get your blush perfectly placed first time, everytime!


If your face is round, your blush will look best applied slightly under the cheekbones. Blend away from the apples and back into the socket.
