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.
- 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.
