It’s clear that if you have dry skin, or wrinkles and lines you should choose an oil-based or creamy formula such as Kiko Milano Velvet Soft Stick Blush.

THE CORRECT WAY TO APPLY BLUSH
- Round Shaped Face
This is the idea behind apply cheek blushes to help make the appear slimmer and more attractive. Apply the blush with an angular motion and blend it from the cheeks’ apples towards your temples to highlight the structure of your bones. Don’t blend it into the nose, as it makes your face appear more round. Simply look in the mirror with a smile. After that, apply two small strokes over the apples of your cheeks, and then brushing upwards to the temples, and then downwards towards the earlobe.
- Square Shaped Face
Straight faces feature straight lines as well as an elongated jawline. It is smooth and flat. To smooth your angles, swipe your favorite blush brush across your cheekbones to the top of your face, then move upwards with long, smooth movements. Apply the blush from the brow down to the nose. Do this softly and blend. The idea is to conceal the cheekbone, starting from the border of the brow up until the line of hair. You can also apply a hint of blush to your lips or your eyelids to give an ethereal flush.
- Oblong Shaped Face
If your cheeks, forehead and jawline are roughly the same size, it’s likely you have an oblong face shape. This is a name for a soft rectangle. Apply pressure to the cheeks’ apples beginning at the most prominent point and then blend it towards your nostrils, then move outward toward the temple. The trick is not to highlight the cheekbones, but allow your face naturally to highlight the cheekbones naturally. It is possible to add some blush to the forehead as well as the sides of your brows for a complete look. your appearance.
- Oval Shaped Face
Blush is the ideal method you can frame the eyes. oval face shapes feature prominent cheeks, and an oval cheekbone. Apply blush on the highest point of your cheekbone. Massage it down towards your earlobe before blending it toward the temple. You can add a touch of blush above the temples for a more luminous look.
- Diamond Shaped Face
The face that you have is broader in the cheekbones, and smaller towards the jawline with a pointed chin and a diamond-shaped jawline. It is important to emphasize the lower half of the face. But, do not apply blush to the hollows beneath your cheekbones. Instead apply it on the cheekbones’ top and blend it towards your ear.
- Heart Shaped Face
A heart-shaped face usually is larger and has prominent cheekbones as well as the appearance of a narrow the chin.
