Don't Be Afraid of Cream Blush!

cream blush

So this is just kind of a fun post! I thought some of you might be like I was not too long ago: fearing cream blush! I wanted to dedicate a whole post to it because I’ve recently discovered the magic of a cream blush (vs. powder) and I had to share!! I used to hate the application of any that I tried and I’ve realized my mistake: I was using my finger. If you have a stiff brush blush on hand, problem solved!!

Now, one of the benefits of cream blush in your handbag is that you can apply it with your finger in a pinch! But at home, I like to use a stiff angled blush brush (this one is the BEST) and it takes two seconds. Literally goes on like a natural flush and blends super easily!

I now prefer cream blush over powder formulas. Powders can tend to sit on the skin and look unnatural. With a cream blush, it blends so much easier into the skin and won’t sit in fine lines like powders. I hope this inspires you to try something new today!! I promise you’ll love it!

Here’s a list of the ones that I love:

Kjaer Weis Cream Blush - I have shades Desired Glow, Precious and Blossoming.

Beautycounter Color Pinch Cream Blusher - I love the shade Caramel! A great dupe for the Kjaer Weis Desired Glow.

Vapour Aura Multi Use -I love Courtesan!

RMS Lip2Cheek - I love Smile for a pop of color in the Spring!

xoxo, Lauren

Look like you just had a facial!

There is nothing like day-after-a-facial skin! When we were engaged, I got professional facials every 4 weeks and my skin never looked better!  I have never had any procedures done - just a facial and a peel whenever I can find the time to go.

Now, I can do the PEEL right at home - with the same results (well, minus the soothing music, massage and professional esthetician).  I posted this photo and a video in my Instagram Stories over the weekend and got so many messages...and orders!  For a product that works this well, I think the price point is fantastic!

Beautycounter Overnight Resurfacing Peel

To apply, spread 1-2 pumps on a clean face before bedtime.  Allow product to sink in and then apply moisturizer/oil/serum.  You can do this 3-4 times/week and it can even be applied every night!  

In this photo, it's not totally naked skin - here's what else I have on!  But, the peel is SO GOOD and I was SO HAPPY WITH MY SKIN that I forgot mascara for the day!

MY FAVORITE NEW HIGHLIGHTER: RMS Luminizer in Champagne Rose - It's the most natural hightlighter I've ever used.  Just looks like dewy skin!

I hope you try the Overnight Peel!  I really think you will love it as much as I do!
