Blush adds color to your cheeks, which can help make you look healthier if you don’t have natural redness there. Also, if you’re wearing foundation, blush will help keep you from looking washed out. Blush comes in cream and powder formulas.
- Cream blush – can be applied with fingers and blended out with a stippling brush or fingers. Cream blush is especially good for dry skin. Also, you can layer powder blush on top of cream blush to increase wear time if that’s a concern for you. Note that cream blush should never be used on top of powder foundation, as it won’t blend out well over powder.
- Powder blush – applied and blended out with a blush brush. If you use liquid foundation, particularly if you have oily skin, be sure to powder your face before applying powder blush; it’ll blend out more easily that way.
