5 blush placement techniques that can completely transform your face
One of the simplest makeup steps, applying blush is also a very important step and has the power to make or break your makeup. I learned this lesson the hard way, and through my transformation journey from looking like a clown to looking like naturally red cheeks, let me give you some important tips on blush placement.
What is blush placement and why is it important?
Blush placement is the technique of applying blush to a specific area of the face to achieve the desired effect. This little detail is important to keep your makeup in harmony. If your blush isn’t applied correctly, it can drag your face downward or make you look like you’ve had the flu. Chances are a lot more, but you get the point. Today we are learning simple ways to avoid all of this.
Today we’ll take a look at how blush placement can change the look of your face. Here is a guide that will show you the types of blush placement and the effects they have on your makeup.
On the cheekbones
When you apply blush makeup to the cheekbones, the pigment can be mixed from the highest point of the cheekbone and gravitate towards the cheeks. This blush placement makes your face look shorter and is perfect for you if you want it to be. Ideally chosen by individuals with oval or long facial structures, this technique adds color to the face in a very subtle way.
Above the cheekbones
It seems a little strange to make your face blush so high, but trust me, it works. Applying the blush in the space slightly above the cheekbones and under the eyes is a placement of the blush that offers a lifting effect to the face. For this technique, blend the blush so that it pushes slightly towards the highest points of the cheekbones and part of the temples on the other side.
In the hollow of your cheeks
Applying blush to the hollows of the cheeks can help add fullness to the face. To perfect this blush application technique, reduce redness on the outside of the face, towards the ear and cheekbones. It will add color and highlight the side of your face and make it look fuller than before.
In the outline of your cheeks
But what will I do with my accompaniment then?
Don’t worry, you can use contour if you want, but today, let’s talk about blush. Applying blush to the contours of your cheeks can help improve your cheekbones. To achieve this effect, apply the blush along the contour line and blend it upwards towards the highest points of the cheekbones and temple of the face.
In the center of your face
This tip, I believe you already know it. Trend since last year, applying blush in the center of the face (nose included) can give you a nice tanned effect. For bonus points, use a peach shade that looks naturally sunny.
