There are distinguished seven types of faces:

2-Round face → Corrective makeup should do the face appear more elongatedUse a darker foundation on the cheek side almost to the chin, taking care to fade very well.
Blush will be to create the illusion of lengthening the face. It will be applied from cheeks and close to the eyes, blending it obliquely to the temples.
Eyebrows must be upward.
3-Square face → Aim is to make the face appear round. Thus, projections of the face (outside parts of forehead and lower jaw) will be slightly darker with a darker foundation, blending carefully.
Blush will be applied on the cheeks, near the eyes, in the form of a triangle pointing to the temples.
Eyebrows will have a curved shape.
4- Elongated face → Corrective makeup is to make the face look wider and more rounded. To do this, use a foundation with a lighter tone on lower jaw and on each side of the forehead, blending it very well.

Apply a foundation on these which is a lighter tone and blend it thoroughly.
Blush should be applied in the oval shape on the upper cheekbone.
Eyebrows should be slightly apart and arched in direction of cheekbone.
