Dry Skin – If you have dry skin then cream blushes are going to work amazingly for you. If you use a powder blush on top of your dry skin the powder can enhance the dry look of your skin and make your cheeks look very dull. However, using a cream blush will add extra moisture to your skin and add a youthful glow to your skin that a powder blush won’t provide.
Aging Skin – As we age our skin tends to get drier. Using a cream blush will automatically add a youthful glow back to your face along with a dewiness we tend to lose as we get older.
Cold Climates – A cream blush is ideal for those of you who live in colder climates, or during the colder months. Cream blushes sit on the skin and add moisture that the cold air takes away. For those of you who live in warmer climates or where it’s humid, a cream product can actually slide, melt or make you look more oily. It’s best to use a cream blush in the colder seasons or if you live in a cold climate.
How to Apply
Fingers – This is by far my favorite method of applying cream blush. Using your clean two middle fingers, pat your fingers into the blush picking up some of the product. Smile and apply the blush to the apples of the cheeks and blend the color backward. If you feel you have applied too much color, use a sponge like a Beauty Blender and pat over the top to pick up some of the color until you get your desired color.
Cheek Highlighter Brush – This brush has a soft, flat top that allows you to stipple the cream blush onto your cheeks. Gently stipple the brush into the blush picking up a small amount. Apply it the same way by smiling and placing on the apples of your cheeks and blend backward. Using a brush isn’t my favorite method as it applies too much and you will probably have to go back with a sponge and remove some color.
Beauty Blender or Sponge – The only thing I recommend using this for is for tapping off any excess color on your cheeks and blending the color out.
