Cream Blush: The Right Way To Apply It

Cream Blush: The Right Way To Apply It

Cream blushes are like the intermediate stage of makeup. To many women, they may be more difficult to apply than powder blush. So you may ask why apply them at all? Frankly, when done right, it can help you achieve a dewy, youthful finish. Plus, it’s creamy! When applying your cream blush, use a blush that is suited for your skin tone, and blend it in so that you create a natural look. Here are some ways you can apply these blushes:

 

Prepare Your Face

First and foremost, clean your face. Then, apply a moisturizer with SPF. Apply concealer to the dark circles and any blemishes on your face, dabbing the concealer in with your middle finger until it is blended in with your skin.

Put On A Base

Choose a natural looking foundation, and apply it to your face with a brush, sponge or your fingers. Make sure you choose a foundation that is similar to your skin tone, and blend it in with your fingers or a beauty blender. Use a damp beauty blender sponge so that it doesn't remove any of the foundation from your face. At this point, you can apply another layer of concealer for any blemishes that are really stubborn, but make sure you don't cake on your makeup. It’s also advisable to put on a foundation that suits your skin type. If you have a slightly dark complexion and put on extremely white foundation, the effect looks a bit grey!

 

Apply Cream Blush

There are many ways to apply cream blush. You can use a beauty blender to your aid. Do this by gently swiping the beauty blender in an upward motion on the apple of your cheeks. A sponge can also be used to blend your blush into the skin. Alternatively, you can also use your fingers. Simply dip your fingers into the blush and then swipe it on your cheeks. Make sure you wash your hands after this though! Aim for either the apple of the cheeks or the cheekbones.

 

Add Some Powder

Finish off with a small dusting of loose powder. This will help your blush cling to your face, as well as create a more matte finish on your face, which will remove some of the dewy look.
