From face width to skin type, learn how to best highlight the contours of your face.

Wide Face
A two-tone blush process helps contour your face. Use muted, neutral colors, like bronzes and browns, to add contour to your temples, the top of your forehead, or jaw line. Keep it subtle. Then, use a happier, more colorful shade on the apples of your cheeks.

Narrow Face
No grand sweeping gestures here, less is blush-best on a small or narrow face. Keep the blush concentrated on the apples of your cheeks, and bring the color a bit closer to your face's centerline.

Fine Lines and Oily Skin
Use a creamy formula like COVERGIRL and Olay Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush. It stays suspended on the skin’s surface and doesn’t streak when skin gets oily.

Dry Skin
Go with a classic pressed powder blush like Cheekers. A powder formula will stay put without irritating the skin. Be sure to moisturize before applying!
