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!

This set is a must to gift to yourself!

2. Transforming Lip Duo ($30) - The perfect color on everyone!!! It's a transforming lip tint that creates a custom color on everyone. I had no idea that transforming lipsticks were such a thing, but I guess Dior has one that is very popular. I am seriously in love with this set, it is the perfect amount of color and shine! This is a great gift for anyone!!

Minimal Summer Makeup

kjaer weis cream blush

I posted this photo in my Stories recently and received a lot of questions about which products I used, so I thought I would post a comprehensive list of all the goodness.

First of all, if you haven't gotten your hands on the Overnight Peel that I've been raving about... DO IT!  It's such a gamechanger for your skin, which means LESS MAKEUP.  And I don't know about you, but when it's scorching outside - the last thing I want to do is wear heavy makeup.  I literally keep forgetting to wear makeup because I'm so happy with how my skin looks!

On this day, I had used the PEEL two days before.  My skin was still great and I just needed minimal makeup to enhance my look.  I originally posted the photo to rave about my new BLUSH because I loved how natural it was.  And it's such a great color that you can wear with anything because it doesn't lean too far into any hue.  It was great with my bright pink dress!

Here are the goods:

Kjaer Weis Cream Foundation in Paper Thin - applied with my Beautyblender.  I love this foundation for it's beautiful finish and buildable coverage.

Beautycounter Touchup Concealer in Light - Just the right amount of coverage and not-too-matte for undereyes

Kjaer Weis Cream Blush in Desired Glow - The blush that goes with everything.  A little tawny/bronzey with a hint of pink.  A blush you can wear when you dress in pink ;)  I apply with my Beautyblender.

Beautycounter Eyeliner in Black - Doesn't smudge and lasts for hours.

Kjaer Weis Eyeshadow in Magnetic - Beautiful coppery, bronzey color with subtle shimmer

Honest Co Mascara + Primer - I love this mascara for the primer!  Helps my barely there lashes stand out!

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

Kari Gran Lip Whip in Pink Tinted - My go-to lip balm!

Innersense Pure Harmony Hairbath Shampoo + Innersense Pure Inspiration Daily Conditioner

Look like you just had a facial!

beautycounter resurfacing peel

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!

Kjaer Weis Cream Foundation

Beautycounter Touchup Concealer

Vapour Aura Multi-Use in Sultry on my cheeks

Beautycounter Lipgloss in Blush Shimmer

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!  

**BONUS:  If you make a $100 purchase on My Beautycounter Page now through 6/24, I will personally mail a FREE GIFT to you!  All you have to do is make the purchase!  I will see it and mail a package to your mailing address!!  YAY!!**
