In this case, move from the ear towards the corner of the mouth. Then blush should be shaded in circular motions and as if to drive into the skin. After that, blush the blush with long movements, but not circular. The brush should move smoothly around the cheekbone, as if drawing the letter "C".When the brush moves outward, the line is rounded towards the temple, inward - it rises to the nose.
Step two. Type on the brush another portion of blush and make the contour of the face more clear. To do this, they should be applied to the jaw line. Begin the movement from the outer edge, and finish in the middle of the chin. Apply also blush on the temples to shade them.
Step three. Pick up a lighter shade of blush with a round brush and smile a little. In this position it is necessary to put a blush on the cheeks and shade them to the temples.
Application to different face types

To hide the shortcomings of a round face, it is necessary to apply blush to the middle of the cheeks or slightly lower, otherwise the fullness of the cheeks will be emphasized.
For a square face, it is recommended to use vertical lines from the temples to the corners of the mouth, not reaching them about 2-3 centimeters and shading well. Also need to smooth out with blush bulging cheekbones and corners of the forehead.
For an elongated face it is necessary to put blush on the cheekbones, highlighting the area as a half of the ball. Also need to brown the tip of the chin and the middle of the forehead.
