Forgive me if I am repeating myself BUT no women should be without a cream blusher.
A flush of colour on the cheek is THE most quickest way to brightening the complexion. Make it a cream blusher and it’s even quicker. Powder blusher in general needs to sit on top of another powder for it to blend well and look natural; cream blusher on the other hand can be applied straight on top of your moisturiser. Perfect for that natural dewy flush that looks like you’ve just been away on holiday. I put cream blusher on almost every face I make-up (except the men…)
Apply the colour with one finger up and along the cheekbone, then blend it in with a clean finger. Keep applying colour and blending until you have your desired look.
Cream blusher can sometimes have less staying power than a powder blusher, depending on your skin type, so you could try setting it with a translucent powder or just reapply later in the day when you need a top up.
