Voile, a soft wash of blush that blends beautifully and adds youth to your face.
Blush for your face shape – recognise which areas to define and highlight to best suit your face.
Before undertaking these steps, it is important to identify your cheekbones and the apples of your cheeks. To find your apples, smile in the mirror and the fullest part of your cheek is where your apples will be. To find your cheekbones, suck in your cheeks so they become more visible.
Make sure that regardless of where you find your apple or cheekbones, you do not apply your blush too close to your nose. Generally the width of your finger or brush is enough distance.
- Heart-shaped face: To balance a heart-shaped face, apply the PurePressed Blush just below the apples of your face and blend out towards your hairline.
- Round face: For a round face, begin applying the PurePressed Blush on the apple of your cheek and blend upwards towards the hairline. This creates a more angular defined face. Make sure that you apply this line a little higher than your would your bronzer, but lower than your highlighter.
- Long face: When applying blush for a longer face, it is important that you blend horizontally across the apple of your cheek to broaden across your face to create the illusion of a more balanced face.
Blush doesn’t have to be pink and boring, switch to swirls of Tawny to warm up your complexion. We are loving jane iredale PurePressed Blush in Flawless and Copper Wind this season.
