Now that we are transitioning into the Autumn/Winter season, this is the time to pay attention to our skin. The fall weather can be very ash on the skin and if you’re the type with dry skin, that means every beauty arsenal in this season has to change to cream, hydrating and so on. That’s why I am introducing you to cream blushes. The spring-Summer season is great for cream matte or matte powder blushes because of the sweats and heat that comes with the season, although everyone’s behaviour in the spring-summer season is to go for cream blushes because summery days are for a flushed fresh look but let’s play with creams this fall, please be sure to swap your powder blushes for cream blushes, cream blushes are great for soft glowy flushed cheeks, the formula allows the blush to melt into the skin like you were born with it. Good cream blush works on all complexions and skin types for a natural skin winter glow.
When it comes to applying cream blushes, you are best advised to use your fingers, your fingers help loosen the blush and dispense the pigments from the blush into your skin effortlessly and with a natural finish. To start, apply a small amount onto your index finger and dab it onto the apple of your cheeks, you can build up the intensity of the blush by applying another layer but if you’re going for a makeup no-makeup look, one pump is enough for each cheek.
Cream blushes nowadays are now used for monochromatic beauty looks that are trending on Instagram, street style and red carpets, take for example if you visit Patrick ta’s beauty Instagram handle, you will find many makeup tutorials on monochromatic looks, and what about Charlotte’s Tilbury’s Pillow Talk Lip & Cheek Glow in COLOUR OF PASSION that can be used on both lips, cheeks and eyes.
Finding your holy-grail cream blush can be very difficult especially when the market is flooded with different types and all promise the same qualities. The truth to this issue is finding the right formula base on your skin type is the solution. There are different types of cream blushes, they’re gel, cream to powder, cream and powder duo, liquid cream, velvety, cheek stains and the solid cream ones. If you have dry skin, it’s always advisable to opt for the hydrating cream blushes, if your skin is oily, you’re advised the cream and powder duo (where you can start with cream and set it with the powder), and if you have combination skin, cream to powder is advisable.
