How to Apply Blush to a Square Face 2009-11-11 08:00:48

How to Apply Blush on Square Faces

Having a square face can be hard — you've got such gorgeous bone structure, but almost none of the application techniques commonly taught play up your features while softening any hard angles you might have. Square girls like Jessica Simpson have stylists on hand to help them, and you deserve assistance, too. So for my how-to, read on.

 

  1. Start at the outer edges of the apples of your cheeks, the parts farthest away from your nose. It's tempting to start closer in, but that can make your cheekbones look heavier.
  2. Sweep your blush along the upper side of your cheekbones up to your temples. Avoid applying blush lower on your cheekbones unless you're going for a super-dramatic look.
  3. Blend with a large brush, working in circles, to soften and set your blush.
  4. Apply a little blush (or some bronzer) to the underside of your jawline and blend.
  5. Dust the corners of your hairline with a little blush; this will soften the angularity and keep your hairline from looking wide or flat.
