If you have DRY skin, you want to use cream blushes to compliment your skin type.
If you have OILY skin, you want to go for powder blushes.
For a well blended application of blush, start applying from near your ear to your cheeks, not the other way around. Finish with a CLEAN powder brush to blend out the harsh edges and give a nice natural glow.
If you find that your blush doesn’t last you throughout the day or you tend to notice a few hours later that it looks like your blush “fell” off your face, it is because it probably did! For a bulletproof blush application, think of it as using a base for your eye shadows…
Use a cream blush underneath and set it with translucent powder, or if you can get away with it not being too heavy, set it with a blush. You may also try using a neutral color as a cream base then setting it with your desired blush color.
Uncertain about cream blushes or how you will like them? Test it out by trying one of your lipsticks as an alternative. Just make sure to build up as you go, that way you will be a lot more successful at blending it out.
* Don’t forget to highlight above your cheekbone! It really is that one small step that truly makes all the difference and makes your face look like it has a healthy glow. Go for a cream highlight, I love MAC’s pearl. Or just simple use a subtle creamy shimmer eye shadow as a substitute!
