Makeup Tutorial: How To Apply Cream and Gel Blushes

Over the last few months, I found myself reaching for my cream and gel blushes instead of powder. Why? Because cream and gel formulas are not only great for creating a dewy look, they are also super easy to apply! So here are a few tips on how to apply cream and gel blushes, including a brief tutorial.

How To Apply Cream and Gel Blushes

Start with freshly moisturized skin or a liquid base. Taking minimal amount, apply the product onto cheeks. Next, using a brush or sponge, buff upwards and out. You can also use your fingers but remember to blend in a patting motion to avoid rubbing off the product. Blend and blend until you do not see any harsh edges. If you require more coverage, go back and add more.

A Few More Things

* Cream and gel blushes work best on those with normal to dry skin. Those with oily skin are better off with powder formulas.
* For a flushed-within look, apply a heavier layer over bare skin then add foundation on top.

* Applied too much? Do not use powder on top (you will risk looking cakey). Instead, tone down the color by dabbing a clean sponge over the area.
