Selecting a blush shade is simple; to find the one that best fits your skin tone as well as applying correctly, not so much! glōminerals makeup artist, Kate McCarthy, offers some encouraging tips on selecting the perfect blush based on Skin Tone, Skin Type and Face Shape.
Face Shape: Blush should be applied differently according to each person’s face shape.
Round: keep the blush color on your cheek bone and pulled up and out to the temple, this will help elongate the face. You can also add a bit of bronzer to the hallows of your cheeks and under your jaw line to provide definition.
Heart: apply blush right below the apple and blend up and out to accentuate bone structure and help square out the face
Long face/Oval: keep the blush color focused right beneath the apple without pulling out to the temple. This will add dimension giving the appearance that the face has some roundness to it.
Confident on your newly-found blush skills? Try a stain!
Powder Cheek Stains can alleviate the fear of staining your fingers, and looking like a face full of stripes.
-The brush we suggest for a powder cheek stain is the glōminerals Texture Brush, which is made from black capra with white taklon. This brush is ideal for creating soft layers of shimmer or adding subtle texture to your makeup. The flat top is used for a sheer, lightweight application.
-To apply stains (they come in gel, cream liquid or powder formula) always start with just a little and build until you get your desired flush.
