- Start below your cheekbones, not on them. Heart shapes tend to have nice bone structure, but applying blush directly on top of the bones can make your face look wider.
- Dab blush all along the underside of your cheekbones up to your ears.
- Sweep your blush upwards, using a little less below your eye sockets and temples.
- Blend with a large brush, rotating it in circles as you do so. This helps set the pigment and gives a more natural finish.
