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!

I mean.  Come on.  And as if I didn't love them enough, Vapour just extended their Atmosphere Foundation line to 19 different shades and Illusionist Concealer to 18 shades!  So many skin tones are represented.  This makes me so happy!  Not to mention, the Soft Focus Foundation now comes in glass bottles!!  The BEST!

How to get this look:

I apply my Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation (I wear shade s115) with my Beautyblender.  I wet the Beautyblender with water or rosewater and apply with soft strokes.  I then apply my Illusionist Concealer (I wear shade 015) to my undereyes with my finger.  The concealer has such a reflective property, that I don't feel like I have to use very much because it reflects so much light and makes my undereyes appear lighter.   Next, I swipe my Beautyblender on my Aura Multi-Use in Courtesan.  I dab the color to the apples of my cheeks for a beautiful blush.   I use my finger to apply a little of the color to my lips.  

The Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation (I wear shade s115) is a medium-to-full coverage foundation that is the dewiest and glowiest!  It's so pretty - I just feel like I look healthy and youthful as soon as I put it on!!  The Illusionist Concealer is pretty full coverage, I feel like a little goes a long way!  Like I said, it is super reflective, so light just bounces off of it like crazy! I have the Aura Multi-Use Blush in Sultry and Courtesan - they blend in so well, giving the prettiest flush to my cheeks!

Now, let's talk about this deodorant.  I use the AER Next-level Deodorant in Ginger Grapefruit and I got mine from Aillea Beauty.  It is a gel-to-powder formula that works.  Everyone's chemical makeup is so different and you really have to find the deodorant that works for you.  The AER is mine.  I don't feel like I constantly need to reapply and it is really working for me!  Bonus - it smells SO GOOD.

Don't you just want to try it all??
