Healthy, pale, or overly pink. Applying blush looks easy, but this simple step has its rules. See what an expert told us: Simply essential in makeup. Roses, browns, violets or peaches, the color and the application do not matter, it all depends on the skin tone and the style you want to wear.
For this reason we spoke with Alberto Lerda, make up artist at Natura who gave us some useful tips to look healthy and fashionable.
Applying it with an angular blush brush allows you to define the cheekbone area, taking into account that a small amount should be applied so as not to cause a stain.
The makeup expert maintains that the first thing is to identify the shape of our face (for this you can see the types of faces that we tell you below).
When the face is wide, the blush should be applied forming an inverted triangle, so the face looks more stylized. On the other hand, when the face is long, the blush should be placed as a horizontal line starting from the middle of the ear and taking care that the blush is in the center of the cheekbone, in this way an effect is obtained that makes the face look more round.

If the length of the face is greater than the width, it can be called a long or rectangular face, if they are almost equal it is square. This type of face has a strong jaw.
The forehead is the facial feature that dominates this face shape. It is generally a thin face.
