How to Apply Cream Blush Depending on Your Face Shape

A step-by-step guide for applying a cream blush

How to make the forehead smaller, chin thinner, and cheeks less visible without professional makeup skills? With a tube of cream blush! More than that, it helps to refresh the complexion and make makeup more harmonious.

We will tell you how to apply cream blush correctly depending on the shape of your face, how to quickly make the face thinner or fuller, how to choose a shade, and what secrets will help you become even more beautiful with just one product.

To apply blush correctly, focus on the shape of your face

Different faces require a different approach depending on what you want to do: visually narrow the forehead or chin, make the cheekbones sharper, or soften the features.

Makeup with blush looks softer and more natural than makeup with contouring products or dark concealer. They are easy to apply and easy to blend. OK Beauty 3-in-1 Cream Blush can be smudged with your fingers and applied to the cheeks, forehead and chin right from the tube.

Check with the illustrated guide below and learn how to apply the blush like a pro makeup artist.

HOW TO APPLY A CREAM BLUSH ONTO A ROUND FACE

Key features

✅ Length of the face is close to its width.

✅ Often — pronounced cheeks.

How to balance your features

Balance the upper and lower parts of the face and "stretch" the cheekbones.

✅ To make your face longer, apply OK Beauty cream blush on the high parts of the cheekbones and blend along them, moving to the outer corners of the face.

✅ Apply the blush in the same color on the temples, near the hairline, to harmonize upper and lower parts of the face.

Pro tip. To narrow the face, use two blush — brown and pink (or beige). For example, apply OK Beauty cream blush in a chocolate brown shade Cocoa under the cheekbones, and neutral peach shade Marrakesh on the upper parts of cheekbones. Blend them together and smudge, moving to the ears.

HOW TO APPLY A CREAM BLUSH ONTO AN OVAL FACE

Key features

✅ Oval is considered to be the most well-balanced shape of the face.

✅ The chin is more narrow than the forehead.

How to balance your features

The Oval face is naturally well-balanced, so it’s enough to emphasize the cheekbones.

✅ Apply the cream blush to the high points of the cheekbones and blend it to the ears.

✅ Blend some blush along the hairline near the ears.

HOW TO APPLY A CREAM BLUSH ONTO A LONG FACE

Key features

✅ The face is noticeably longer in length than in width.

✅ The chin is narrow.

How to balance your features

A long face is proportionally similar to an oval face, but appears longer. A slight darkening of the chin and forehead will help to balance the facial features and make them softer.

✅ Apply the cream blush under the cheekbones, moving almost horizontally to the ears.

✅ Blend 1–2 drops of a brown blush (Gypsy or Cocoa) on the middle of the chin and forehead (along the hairline).

HOW TO APPLY A CREAM BLUSH ONTO A SQUARE FACE

Key features

✅ A well-defined, "heavy" chin line.

✅ Sharp cheekbones.

✅ Angular forehead.

How to balance your features

Make facial features softer, more rounded. A square face can easily be visually reduced to a harmonious oval face.


✅ Apply the blush under the cheekbones and blend thoroughly.

✅ Blend the blush along the chin line. Skip the center.

✅ Blend the blush onto the temples.

✅ Combine the three lines. Use a brush or fingers to paint a “3 number".

HOW TO APPLY A CREAM BLUSH ONTO A TRIANGULAR FACE

Key features

✅ The forehead is much wider than the chin.

✅ Pronounced cheekbones.

✅ Often: the face is elongated.

How to balance your features

Shift the focus to the center of the face and balance the forehead and chin.

✅ Apply the blush to the prominent part of the cheekbones and blend it over and under the cheekbones, drawing the shade toward the ears.

✅ Blend the blush on the temples along the hairline to make the forehead appear narrower.

✅ Darken the center of the chin.

HOW TO APPLY A CREAM BLUSH ONTO A DIAMOND-SHAPED FACE

Key features

✅ Narrow forehead and chin.

✅ Highly prominent cheekbones.

✅ Sharp, well-defined chin.

How to balance your features

Shift the focus to the center of the face and balance the forehead and chin.

✅ Apply the blush to cheekbones and under them, blending from the center to the ears.

✅ Blend your cream blush over the center of the chin and forehead (along the hairline).

How to apply a cream blush. Pro tips

1. Applied too much cream blush? Don't overlay them with powder, or the color will be muddy and your face will look like a mask. Gently blot the coverage with a tissue or cotton pad, without rubbing, and blend the rest, moving from the center of the face to the periphery.

2. Cream blush can be applied not only to the cheeks, but also to the eyes and lips. For example, you can create a trendy monochrome look in just five minutes with one OK Beauty 3-in-1 cream blush. See how natural and airy it looks.

The makeup of both models is created with one OK Beauty tint in Marrakesh shade 👇

3. To give your face a gentle, healthy glow, mix your cream blush with a drop of caring oil and apply as usual. OK Beauty's translucent, non-greasy primer oil is ideal for any makeup. It creates a fresh blush and takes care of your skin while you wear your makeup.

4. The brown cream blush not only emphasizes the contours of the face, but also creates a light Mediterranean tan effect, as if you were gathering seashells just yesterday.

The model's tanned makeup is made with chocolate brown OK Beauty tint in Cocoa shade 👇

5. Girls with cool undertones will suit berry, red and pink blushes. Peach, beige and warm brown tones are nice for girls with warm skin tone. Girls with neutral skin tones will do for all blush tones.

Cream blush for warm skin

Cream blush for cold skin

Extra tip. Soft warm Marrakesh, Tanami, Cocoa, Safari, and Gypsy shades will also suit “cold” girls and women, because they have a neutral-warm undertone. On the contrary, “warm” girls can use “cold” cream blushes to additionally emphasize their beauty.
