Blush Application For Different Face Shapes

Hello Bolly Beauties, we have some interesting makeup insights to share with you all. Did you’ll know that depending on the face shape, blush application changes? The main purpose of applying blush is to accent your face, highlight your bone structure in particular. Hence, it’s important to do it strategically well. Before you learn to do that, let’s understand the different face shapes & later venture into the application bit. Ready?

HEART SHAPE

If your face is long with prominent cheekbones and a narrow chin, you likely have a heart-shaped face.

Model (dusky tone) has used Bollyglow’s Bollybar Blush & Glow in Plum Liqueur

How To Apply: Start in a “C shape” from the top of the temple down to the cheekbone.

TIP: Use blush along the cheekbone, then blend it up towards the temple, brushing it in & upwards. Keep it minimal for a blended look.

OBLONG SHAPE

If your forehead, cheeks, and jawline are all about the same width, you have an oblong face shape.

Model (medium tone) has used Bollyglow’s Bollybar Blush & Glow in Peach Bellini

How To Apply: Start from the apple of the cheek towards the nose and bring it out towards the temple.

TIP: Add a touch of blush on the forehead and the sides of the brows to bring the look together.

SQUARE SHAPE

If your face has straight sides and a fairly flat jawline (think Deepika Padukone, Anushka Sharma or Dia Mirza), you have a square face.

Model (fair tone)  has used Bollyglow’s Bollybar Blush & Glow in Strawberry Mojito

How To Apply: Start from the lower cheekbone and move upwards, towards the corner of the brow…& then hairline.

TIP: Make sure the motion of your brush is long & light, & very softly sweeping it down from the eyebrow down to the nose.

ROUND SHAPE

If your cheeks are the fullest part of your face and you have a curved jawline, you have a round face.

How To Apply: Start from the apple of the cheek and up towards the temple and down towards the earlobe.

TIP: Don’t forget to look in the mirror and smile. And recommended to use a foundation brush and with medium-size strokes swipe blush.  

OVAL SHAPE

If your face is long with somewhat prominent cheeks, a narrower chin, and a narrow forehead, your face is oval.

How To Apply: Start at the cheekbone and bring down towards the earlobe & blend up towards the temple.

TIP: Add blush the slightest bit just above the temple, too, to even it out.

Beauty buff or not, when you hear the word “blush” you already know it is to be applied on your cheeks but what if we say you can apply it on the rest of your face-apples of your cheeks, across the bridge of your nose, under the cheekbones, around the jawline, lips and eyelids—WOW!

Eyes
Blush will look lovely on your eyes as well. Just dab a little on your eyelid; blend it upwards towards the brow. Make sure to not concentrate all the powder next to your lash line—a big NO! NO! If you wish, separate the colour with a sleek black liner.

Can You Use More Than One Foundation?

Hey #BGStars, did you know? We recently launched our latest #FilmiFoundations. Find your perfect match and get flawless, radiant-looking skin all day, everyday with the best base in town—our smooth, weightless & hydrating foundation that come in seven shades to match your skin tone. Take a look and in case you don’t find your match, you can mix and match two shades. You read that right, it’s absolutely fine to have & use more than one foundation. It’s beneficial! Care to know why? Read on….

1. Skin Colour Can Change With The Seasons
At first finding the right shade may or may not be the easiest for everyone. Agreed? Secondly, during the summer the skin tends to get a little darker and no matter what, you can’t escape it. Hence, it makes complete sense to have two shades which you can mix and match; this will let you have a shade when you’re at your palest and most tan. How convenient! Nonetheless, the two shades will get you through every season looking picture perfect. Bollyglow’s Filmi Foundations are enriched with Vita Rose, an ingredient from rose stem cell to promote firmer, more elastic and revived skin. Switching up your foundation in the summer and winter is the way to go!

2. You can contour and sculpt
For all the contour aficionados in the house, having two foundations is a must–a light and dark shade. Use the lighter shade on the center of your face and one shade darker to enhance bone structure in a not-so-prominent way, but give a natural finish. A good blend of two foundations can give you the shape and dimension you’ve always wanted to achieve. Try it to believe it!

3. A customized formulation for your skin type
We all have a different skin type-dry, oily, combination and this varies over time. For the drier areas of your skin, you may want to have a foundation that is matte and for the dry areas, especially your cheeks, a moisturising and hydrating foundation is required. Having two kinds of foundations lets you customize a base depending on how your skin feels on that particular day. Pretty cool huh? If this is too much of a hassle for you, then simply opt for a foundation that has a powder-matte finish and is hydrating as well. Bollyglow’s Filmi Foundation has all these properties. Let’s not forget the fabulous coverage it offers that you can forgo the concealing step if you wish.

Having more than one foundation in your makeup kit clearly has a lot of benefits. So if you haven’t got yours already, go shopping for your second favourite base in town. Don’t stress, we have got you covered. Check out our seven foundation shades—Wheat, Oat, Cinnamom, Chai, Cappuccino, Butter, Biscuit online at www.bollyglow.com. How many foundations do you own?

Hey Skin, Winter Is Coming!

Cold weather can leave your skin feeling dry, itchy and irritated. We’ve all experienced this and find ways to keep our skin moist and supple throughout—a bottle of moisturizer is all you need to get through dry weather. But, while moisturizing is a great way for your skin to stay hydrated, there are other simple ways to combat the dry winter skin that you might miss out on. Just a few changes in your daily routine and you are good to go!

Here are a few simple things to help your skin feel the best all winter long. Keep this in mind.

Skip the super-hot/long showers

Ladies, as much as a hot shower sounds and feels great on a cold day, it can cause immense harm to your skin. Hot water can steal your skin’s natural hydration, not what anyone wants at all. Plus, make sure to keep it short. All you need is about 10 minutes. That’s it!

Always keep a moisturizer handy!

Everytime you get a chance, make sure to moisturize, especially, after you’ve had a bath. Make it a point to incorporate a facial spa in your daily skincare routine— use moisturizing face masks and to repair cracked, flaky lips- a thick lip balm is all you need. Keep in mind to moisturise before you go to bed as well, just like in the morning.

Stock up on hydrating makeup

Flaky makeup during winter is common. How to avoid this? Replace drying powder makeup with creamy formulas that contain ceramide-like amino acids that improves long term moisturizing and protects the skin from environmental hazards. Try Bolly Prime Time CC Primer with Free Sheet Mask that offers deep hydration and acts like a perfect base for your makeup.

Keep your face clean

Simply avoid soaps, use a cleansing oil instead! In the winter, wash your face once at night to avoid drying out your skin. Use a gentle liquid cleanser that does not require rinsing to remove your makeup.

Sun, Rain or Winter—Apply Sunscreen

Even on bright winter days, your skin is still exposed to the sun’s harmful rays. So whether you just hop out for lunch or are travelling to work, it’s just as important to be applying sunscreen in the harsh winter weather as it is in the summer.

Take care of your skin this winter!
