Cream, or creme, blush is one of my all-time favorite products and also one that tends to be somewhat intimidating to wear, especially if you are of the oily-skinned variety. Never fear, Sheila is here to show you two easy tips to make cream blush a part of your makeup routine.
Tip 1: Use your fingers, or a small contour brush, to apply cream blush right after you’ve applied your foundation.
During my past as a makeup artist one of the biggest fears I heard from clients is messing up your foundation with your cream blush. I am here to dispel that fear and let you know that once foundation is blended in, it really won’t go anywhere as long as you use a light hand to apply the cream blush. Trust. I promise you that it will look great.
Once the blush is applied, you can either powder your face, which locks in your blush and give you a natural glow, or proceed to tip 2.
Tip 2: After applying foundation, cream blush, and then setting your makeup with powder, use a powder blush in a similar shade to your cream blush.
This adds an extra dimension to your blush, and ensures it won’t travel. While your setting powder alone is enough to lock in your cream blush, you won’t lack for rouge with this technique.
