Welcome to That Weird Girl Official
Hello my lovelies!
Choosing a blush can be a task on its own, from finding the right color to applying it properly. When I first got a blush and tried to apply it, I covered most of my cheek in attempt of getting it just right and looked like an apple, not in a decent way. I actually looked pretty much like Lindsay Lohan from the picture below, just more red.
But don’t worry, you don’t have to go through that and I hope this post would pretty much answer all your ‘How to’ question when it comes to applying blush. Hmm…
- First thing first, I know most of the girls find it difficult to find the blush that would suit their skin. Below are the shade that look great on the particular skin types:
If your skin tone is light (Fair), you will look best in Linen or Peach shade
If your skin tone is medium (wheatish complexion), you will look your best in Peach or Almond
If your skin tone is medium to dark, you will look your best in Almond, Warm Blush and Fudge
- The shape of your face determines which method you should go for when it comes to applying blush. For long face, puff the blush on the apple of cheeks towards the ear. Heart shaped face should apply the blush at the apples if the cheeks and sweep upward. The oval face should apply to the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards for a natural look. Square shaped girls show apply to the apples of the cheeks to soften angles of the face and round faces should apply along the cheekbones and sweep upward.
- While some people smile while applying the blush, some make pouts. The real technique is to have a slight fake smile while keeping your mouth closed, just lifting the corner of your lips a bit. This would make the blush appear real and the color hits the apples of your cheeks in exactly the spot where you’d flush naturally.
If you are using a cream blush, that would be applied well with a kabuki brush that has short bristles yet flat top. As for powder blush, use a regular blush brush as they work just fine.
What is your face’s shape and did this technique for you?
