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.

I turned 50 in Sept. and like you, remember the cream blushes of the 70's.  I just started using them again in the past year. lol!  use the pink spongey Beauty Blender to apply a cream blush.  Just blot it on the blush then blot it on your cheeks like you are using a stippling brush (which you can also use the same way).  The Beauty Blender makes application so easy with no pink fingers.  I wet the sponge really well, squeeze out excess water, squeeze inside a dry towel.  I have alot of brushes but have not had success using these with cream blushes, but very easy with the Beauty Blender.  This also makes the application of liquid foundations a piece of cake also.  Apply foundation to back of hand then dab with Beauty Blender and apply to face the same as the blush in a blotting way.  When I use a powder blush I use a flat head brush to blend.  Always use a blender brush to blend in powder foundations and blushes. Just makes makeup so much more natural looking without blotches and misses.  A light up magnifying mirror is one of my favorite tools also.  I got mine at CVS for about $20.  Hope this helps.  Dont give up.  Just practice and have fun.
