The next time you do your makeup, try this simple trick: apply your cream blush before foundation. Yes, that’s right.
Dot your cream blush on your cheeks and then blend it out with your brush, a damp sponge, or your fingers—really let the blush melt onto your skin. “Just be careful not to move the blush around. Don’t buff in your foundation—stipple or bounce your makeup sponge on the area to keep your blush in place,” says makeup artist Nicole Ceballos.
It’s that simple! Now you’ll have natural-looking flushed cheeks that will last the whole day long.
Cream blushes are perfect for day-to-day use. They leave your cheeks looking naturally flushed, and last longer. Plus, they don’t make your skin look dry and old, like powder does! Here are some of our cream blush recommendations:
