Over 40 Makeup-Cream Blush

Over 40 Makeup-Cream Blush
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.

 5. Maybelline New York Dream Bouncy Blush

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?

Friday Faves and a Linky Party

Happy Friday! Every Friday, I want to share some of my favorite pins from Pinterest, favorite products, clothes, jewelry etc. I’ve decided to call it Friday Faves and I’m adding a linky party so other bloggers can share their favorite things too.

Okay, I have two things I wanted to share with you today. I mentioned the Beauty Blender yesterday.


I received my Beauty Blender a few months ago in my Birchbox and I absolutely love it!

The Beauty Blender helps you blend your foundation to give you a flawless face. You can go here to see how to use your Beauty Blender.

Here’s a quote from the Beauty Blender website, “Now you can look like a movie star without the pricey services of a major make up artist. Introducing Beautyblender, the ultimate make up sponge applicator. Invented by top Hollywood make up artist Rea Ann Silva, Beautyblender has been created to leave you with a professional finish and a flawless complexion. Silva knows that the key to a perfect face is simple: a perfect blend. So forget your fingers or sharp-edged triangular sponges, these application methods waste make up and can leave visible streaks.”

I think the Beauty Blender would be a great stocking stuffer!

Next, I’m always looking for a cream blush that looks good and stays on. I’ve talked about cream blushes before and the importance of women over 40 using a cream blush to give us a youthful glow.

I recently purchased MAC Creamblend Blush.

The color I use is LadyBlush. It’s a good neutral color, and goes on easy.

So now it’s time to Link Up!

I’d love for you to link-up your favorite posts from this week. There are lots of bloggers with beautiful things to share!
