How to Apply Blush To a Round Face

How to Apply Blush For Your Face Shape: Round

Round faces like Kirsten Dunst's tend to be petite, so blush can look like an all-over wash of color instead of a natural flush if you don't have the correct application techniques. My friend Joselyn swears by these steps for the perfect blush:


  1. Use a fan brush, which is great for accurate application on smaller faces, to apply blush in a boomerang shape, with the tips right under the outer corners of your eyes and the fullest part of the arc under the inner corners of your eyes.
  2. Continue using the fan brush to fill in the boomerang.
  3. Use a medium-sized brush to blend your blush, making sure not to sweep the color any lower than the bottom of your cheekbones and no further out than the ends of your eyebrows.
  4. Apply a touch of blush along your upper temples and to the center of your chin to give your face a little more definition.

Hmm, her makeup doesn't seem to flatter her very much, and this is how they want us to apply it??

Am I reading this right? A "boomerang shape"? As in a sideways V with the arms of the V under the outer corner of the eye and the elbow under the inner corner? Did I get that right? 'Cos that goes against everything else I've read for the past two years!
