You have the benefit of applying the blush in a circular motion, directly to the apple of your cheeks. This will soften the angular feature and by drawing attention to the roundest part of your face.

  1. Long Shaped Face


You need to remember, not to apply blush by pulling it downwards. This will only elongate your face shape. Instead, apply the blush horizontally; this will make your face appear wider. You can apply it from the apples of your cheeks to your ears or from the top of your cheekbones out to your temple.
