Whatever your skin type, there will be a cream blush out there for you. This clever beauty product can add the perfect finishing touch in the form of a hint of glow and color to your cheeks. While powder blushes can become cakey over the day, a good cream blush shouldn’t shift and will blend seamlessly into the rest of your base. Check out these tips on how to achieve a natural, pretty look using cream blush.

Prepare Your Skin

As ever, when it comes to applying base products such as foundation, powder, and blush, you need to start with a well-prepped canvas. This means cleansing your skin thoroughly before applying a good quality, nongreasy moisturizer. Let the moisturizer sink into your skin for at least five minutes before applying the next product.

Start Small

Begin by putting a pea-sized amount of cream blush onto your finger or a brush. Working in circular motions, swirl this over your cheekbones and the apples of your cheeks, topping up with more if you want a more intense blush.

Double Up

Many cream blush products are also safe and effective to use on the lips, so why not double up and match your blush shade to your lip shade? This can increase the natural vibe of your beauty look and also make application easier and quicker.
