This is how you should be applying blush according to your face type

Get the cheekbones of your dreams at the flick of a brush

By Janhavi Prasad  March 23rd, 2017

When it comes to good cheekbones, you are either born with them or you create a little destiny of your own. If you’ve been wondering how Deepika Padukone never gets it wrong, it is because she plays up to her strengths.

Your face, just like the rest of your body, has curves and volume in various areas. These spots catch light differently, and using a combination of blushes instead of just one will give you the most flattering results. Match your face shape to this guide and get that (seemingly) natural glow.
