Getting that healthy, ethereal glow with just the right amount of color isn't as easy as it seems. If your skin is dry then you probably aren't a huge fan of powder red, especially in winter when your cheeks need a little more TLC. Creme blush, a good one, works on all skin tones and blends with the skin for a natural-looking flush, unlike powder that sits on the skin.
How to apply Creme Blush
One of the best things about Creme Blush is that you apply the product with your fingers. Although you can use a brush, the warmth of your fingers loosens the product and spreads the pigment onto your cheeks, making placement easier to control for a seamless, natural-looking conditioner. Always start with a really small amount so you can get the intensity you want.
Cream blush isn't just for cheeks
The best cream blushes on the market are multitaskers, which makes them great for your eyes, lips, and cheeks. Yes, wearing the monochromatic makeup trend just got a lot easier. Not to mention the space you just saved in your makeup bag.
Choosing the best blush cream for you
There are many cream blush formulas, from cream gel and cream-to-powder to cheek patches and the traditional solid. The right formula depends on your skin type. If you have dry skin, avoid a cheek patch and use a moisturizing cream instead. If your skin is oily, a cream-to-powder blush might be your best bet. The fun part is testing them out (here's a great excuse to refill your makeup bag) to find the one that's right for you.
