Blush makes everyone look pretty. It can warm up your skin tone with bronzy tones or brighten your face with a pop of color. I love using cream blush because it leaves the skin with a dewy or sheer, stained finish. It also looks great when it’s applied to clean skin without any foundation. Here are my cream blush tips:
- Look for a shade that matches the color your cheeks turn when they naturally flush. Use a dense color that you can build on and that can easily be made sheer and patted flat so it looks like a stain.
- Apply with your fingers, a foundation brush or a sponge. Use a small amount at first and blend thoroughly. You can always add more or layer colors to enhance the color.
- Smile and pat the color into the apples of your cheeks and up towards the hairline. Soften the edges using your fingers.
- You can also add cream blush to eyelids for a sheer wash of color or use it on lips as a stain. It won’t be gooey like a gloss, making it perfect for summer.
