How to Apply Blush to an Oval Face

How to Apply Blush For Your Face Shape: Oval

Oval faces like Rihanna's are desirable when it comes to hair and makeup because they're the easiest to work with. But the fact that your face is adaptable doesn't mean that you should always have to take generic beauty tips. To get the best blush for your face, read on.


  1. Start using a sponge or medium powder brush. Dot a circle of blush onto the highest segment of your cheekbones, the part that sticks out furthest from your face.
  2. Use a medium brush to sweep a lighter wash of blush up to your temples and a little bit up your hairline.
  3. Blend well.
  4. Apply a tiny touch of blush to the center of your chin for added definition.
