I am loving wearing cream blushes these days. Cream blushes give a dewy- moist kind of look to your cheeks. I was going out today so while getting ready I thought I’d do a small tutorial on how I apply cream blush. You my use a stippling brush or a regular foundation brush as well . I just like to use my clean fingers.
Ignore : My wet hair , no makeup face
Check : Cream blush application, My forever 21 earrings.
I am using Bobbi brown Pot Rouge in Cabo Coral . You may use any cream blush you have. People with oily skin stay away from Bobbi Brown Pot rouge. It gives that glossy look to cheeks, which may look oily if you already have an oily skin.
Pick cream blush with a Q Tip. You may also use a clean brush to pick the product. I just don’t like to re-dip my brush in the pot so I use a Q Tip.
Where to place the blush? Place your index finger slanted on top of your cheek. If you slightly press you finger, you would feel your cheekbone. That’s exactly where you have to place your cream blush.
Most cream blushes are super pigmented . It’s better to layer the cream blush than apply it in a one go. Apply 3-4 dots of cream blush on your cheek bone. Your starting point should be center of your iris “eye” and it would go upwards towards the temple. It should blend into your hairline.
Now with your two middle fingers start patting the dots. No dragging or swiping – just patting. The warmth of your fingers would spread the blush evenly on your cheeks. Also , you wouldn’t be able to see where your blush started and where it ended. Pat til the dots disappear and spread evenly on your cheeks.
Apply more if required. I flip my Q Tip and pick more.
Pat again. Pat in the direction going upwards towards your temple.
You may set your makeup with transparent loose powder. if you want you may also double up your cream blush with a powder blush to make the application long lasting. And you are done. Easy peasy.
I follow the same technique with all my cream blushes.Hope it helps you as well.
