Blush for every day use (light/med
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.
Hi Tamikay! I am glad you can relate to what I was talking about the 70's blushes! I was wondering if it was just me that was traumatized by that (LOL). I will look into the Beauty blender which I have to say I have never used before.
And I agree with you a light mirror is a life savor, a nice big window too
Thanks for all the tips and support!
