Blush for every day use (light/medium skin)

Hello again...


Well, some of you are following my steps on my new make-up life.

Now its time to chose an everyday blush, one to carry on my purse for touch ups through out the day.

Since I am new on this make-up daily routine kind of thing, I am afraind of cream blushes. It reminds me the 70's... and I am afraid of getting all blocthy and pinky read, and mess-up bad (should I be afraid?)  Are powder blushes so much safer?


What color would you recommend for an everyday use ? I am light to medium color skinned.  I am not very concerned with price but with the quality of products I use on my face since I have rosecea and I am almost 50 .  (my husband is laughing hard saying I am only 47 and all the responses will start as "hello grandma" LOL.  Please dont...   LOL


Thanks for any input, tips and comments you can help me with.

Hey Gra...oh right.. hehe Smiley Happy

I find it interesting that you want an "everyday" blush. I'm going to assume that you mean a blush that is not too vivid or vibrant/shocking.

First let me say that any blush can be an "everyday" blush once you apply it very lightly with the right brush.

If you own a fan brush, stippling brush or a big fluggy (but still pointed) blush brush then that's 3/4 the battle!

Also, I'm not sure about your skin concerns but as we get older our skin tends to veer to the dry side, so I really think you ought not to cancel out cream blush just yet. It is the best way to get a dewy glow! Again it also depends on your technique. If you dot it on and blend little by little you shouldn't have a problem. Today's cream blushes are made to be buildable and sheer out very nicely. OR you could go for a cheek stain!

Some blushes I would recommend:

NARS: Douceur, Madly, Sex Appeal

Tarte cheek stain in Dollface and Tipsy:

MAC: Cubic, Tenderling, Sincere, Trace Gold, Sunbasque


Some cream blushes to consider:

Illamasqua - Rude

NARS multiple in South Beach


Also, have you considered using Clinique's urgent redness relief cream to help with the rosacea? Or a green primer from Smashbox or Make Up Forever to help cancel out the red in your face? Perhaps you should sample on or two.


Hope that helps!!!
