How To Apply Blush To a Heart Face

Blush Tips For Heart-Shaped Faces

Different face shapes and cheekbones call for different application techniques, and heart-shaped faces can be particularly ill-served by the traditional "apples of your cheeks" style. I've made a list of tips to help flatter heart-shapes like yours (and Reese Witherspoon's), so get the scoop now.

  1. 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.
  2. Dab blush all along the underside of your cheekbones up to your ears.
  3. Sweep your blush upwards, using a little less below your eye sockets and temples.
  4. Blend with a large brush, rotating it in circles as you do so. This helps set the pigment and gives a more natural finish.
