One of the things I’ve realized is that the makeup I wore in my 20s and 30s doesn’t always work now that I’m in my 40s. Cream blush is one of the things I’ve added to my makeup routine over the last several years.
When I first started using it, I wasn’t crazy about it. There’s something about using a big powder brush and swooping blush on my cheeks that makes me feel like a true makeup artist (which is what I’ve always wanted to be :-)).
The one thing I read over and over again is that as women over 40 we want to have a dewy look to our skin which=younger looking skin. So believe me I try to look dewy! I’ve seriously thought about keeping a squirt bottle with me and just misting my face all day. Haha!
Cream blush seems to give us a dewy look. It goes on smoothly and can be applied with your fingers, foundation brush or sponge.
To find the perfect color, pinch your cheeks and look at the tone, match your blush color to the color in your cheeks.
When applying cream blush apply the product to the apples of the cheeks and up toward the hairline, then down to soften the edges.
Here are some good ones you might want to try:
1. Mac Cremeblend blush-I use this and the color I use is Ladyblush.
I have used several of these cream blushes, but all of them have good reviews!
Have you tried any cream blushes? What’s your favorite blush?
