How to Apply Cream Blush the Right Way

A good cream blush can be your best friend — especially during the winter, when sun-deprived skin needs a little extra warmth. Not only does the creamy color sink into your cheeks, giving you a natural-looking glow, but it also adds moisture. Here's how to apply cream blush properly to get the dewiest hue:

No Brush Required

Using your fingers to apply cream blush is the best method for a couple of reasons. For starters, it’s easy: You can put your blush on in your car, on the subway, even in the elevator as you race to work. Also, the warmth from your fingertips helps the creamy color blend seamlessly into your skin.

Say Cheese

To apply your cream blush the right way, always start with a smile to locate the apples of your cheeks. Dip the pads of two fingers into the blush, making sure not to pick up too much color. A little goes a long way, and you can always add more! Rub the blush into your skin with circular strokes, working your way along your cheekbone toward your hair line. Make sure all concentrated areas of color are fully blended.
