All About Blush
Simply avoid wearing blush with warm tones - undertones of yellow and bronze - with cooler colors, like pinks and reds, on your lips and vice versa. To contour the unique shape of your face, it may help to invest in two blush colors, particularly if you want to minimize a wider face shape. Sweep a cool, neutral brownish pink across your forehead and under cheekbones. Follow with a complementary pink that's warmer than the first, applied to the apples of your cheeks (the area that you see when you smile). For longer faces, less is best. Apply with a large, round brush to the apples of your cheeks, then sweep the color slightly inward toward your nose. When you're putting on your face, be sure to add some color to those cheeks for a finished look.
