How To Apply Cream Blush

How to Apply Cream Blush

Today I am going to give you all the information I know about cream blushes. I know some of you are intimated by them and how to use them. The main questions I hear are how to apply them and what kinds are best. So for this video I am going to provide everything you need to know about how they work, when its best to use them, how to apply them and everything else you need to make sure you get the most from these remarkable products.

Who is Cream Blush best for?

  1. Dry Skin – If you have dry skin then cream blushes are going to work amazingly for you. If you use a powder blush on top of your dry skin the powder can enhance the dry look of your skin and make your cheeks look very dull. However, using a cream blush will add extra moisture to your skin and add a youthful glow to your skin that a powder blush won’t provide.
  2. Aging Skin – As we age our skin tends to get drier. Using a cream blush will automatically add a youthful glow back to your face along with a dewiness we tend to lose as we get older.
  3. Cold Climates – A cream blush is ideal for those of you who live in colder climates, or during the colder months. Cream blushes sit on the skin and add moisture that the cold air takes away. For those of you who live in warmer climates or where it’s humid, a cream product can actually slide, melt or make you look more oily. It’s best to use a cream blush in the colder seasons or if you live in a cold climate.

My Favorite Cream Blushes

  1. Stila Convertible Cream Blush
    I love this because it’s a dual purpose product that can be used on the lips and cheeks. These are very highly pigmented and not sticky which makes them easy to apply. This non-greasy, creamy formula adds the perfect glow to the cheeks.
    Price: $25.00
    Where to Buy:  Sephora  .  Amazon .  eBay . Nordstrom
  2. Illamasqua Cream Blush
    This rich and creamy blushes are highly pigmented and glide on the cheeks smoothly and evenly. They give a perfect glow to the cheeks and have a great range of colors for fair skin to dark skin.
    Price:  $26.00
    Where to Buy:  Sephora  .  Amazon .  eBay
  3. NYX Cream Blush
    These are by far the least inexpensive of the bunch. However, they don’t lack on quality. They are highly pigmented, aren’t sticky and don’t leave your skin looking oily. They come in a wide range of colors for fair skin to dark skin.
    Price: $6.75
    Where to Buy:   Makeup Geek Store  .   Amazon  .  eBay

Cream Blush Feature

How to Apply

  1. Fingers – This is by far my favorite method of applying cream blush. Using your clean two middle fingers, pat your fingers into the blush picking up some of the product. Smile and apply the blush to the apples of the cheeks and blend the color backward. If you feel you have applied too much color, use a sponge like a Beauty Blender and pat over the top to pick up some of the color until you get your desired color.
  2. Cheek Highlighter Brush – This brush has a soft, flat top that allows you to stipple the cream blush onto your cheeks. Gently stipple the brush into the blush picking up a small amount. Apply it the same way by smiling and placing on the apples of your cheeks and blend backward. Using a brush isn’t my favorite method as it applies too much and you will probably have to go back with a sponge and remove some color.
  3. Beauty Blender or Sponge – The only thing I recommend using this for is for tapping off any excess color on your cheeks and blending the color out.

I hope all this information is helpful for you all!  Don’t be afraid to use cream blushes as they give such a nice finish to the skin.  Always apply lightly and build as needed.

Have a great week!

Korean Beauty Shopping

Cushion Foundation

I really wanted to get my hands on some of the ‘cushion’ products from their country of origin, Korea, to see how they differ, if at all, from the cushions being made for western markets so I did some proper Korean Beauty Shopping! I placed an order with that sells all things Korean (so impressed with this site..I’ll pop in a link at the end) and the bits and pieces arrived today. I ordered Innisfree Waterglow Cushion Foundation, Iope Cushion Blush (the trend to follow the cushion foundation) and two ‘cushion’ shadows from Tony Moly. First up, Innisfree Waterglow Cushion Foundation. Well, it’s pretty much the same as the versions we’re seeing beginning to emerge here, and for a product with a ‘water’ indication in the title, I didn’t find it particularly light. I think I was expecting more from the ‘water’ term, thinking maybe of Dr Jart and that range of ‘water’ products that leave little droplets of water on the skin. It’s also, as I’m finding, far paler on the skin than it looks in the pot. I will pass this on to a fellow blogger to review because it’s way too pale for me. Because it’s… Read More

Spa Treatment Review: Erno Laszlo The Institute Facial: How To Best Determine Your Skin Type, Is Toner Necessary?

“Your skin is not the same all over your face. It changes with your emotions, your age, your environment, and events of the moment.” — Erno Laszlo I couldn’t imagine a better way of opening this article than with that quote, from a man who not only understood skin, but was aware of its nature. […]

Knickers To Help You Sleep Well


If you’re a regular BBB reader, you’ll know that I love anything Japanese and quirky – some of their more out-there beauty inventions literally have me slack-jawed! However, I came across these help-you-sleep-pants. Fundoshi are traditional Japanese loin cloths, I suppose you would call them, but they’ve been prettied up and repackaged as a sleep aid.

And here’s the why: usual knickers have elastic strips round thighs and waist (if you’re wearing them that high!) that can lead to poor blood circulation which in turn lead to a ‘stuffy feeling’ and possibly even skin irritation – which THEN can trigger a sleep disorder. Well, who knew?

With Fundoshi, there is no elastic, so you’ll apparently feel freer downstairs and thus sleep like a lamb.

It’s just that simple, although maybe someone needs to explain the theory of sleeping with a) no knickers at all or b) pyjamas.
