From powders to liquids, we’re sure you’re familiar with the different formulas you can find makeup products like foundation and highlighter in, but have you considered all the options there are for blush? While most people tend to reach for a traditional powder blush, there are certainly benefits to using a cream formula instead, particularly during the cold, winter months. Of course, if you’re going to switch up your makeup routine with a new product, you’ll want the best of the best, right? Well, that’s exactly why we’re introducing you to our best cream blush to try in 2020.
Meet the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Longwear Blush Shaping Sticks—the cream blush we’re highly suggesting you add to your makeup bag. The creamy, super-glide formula goes on smoothly and doesn’t fade or transfer. With its stick format, you can easily take it anywhere—from a trip overseas to the office—for on-the-go color that lasts from day to night. The buildable, long-wear formula contains brightening pigment that’s meant to flatter any complexion. The blendable blush is available in two rosy shades, a lighter option perfect for a subtle flush, and a darker option you can use to amp up the color.
Ready to put our best cream blush to use? We thought you might be! Follow the steps below to bring your faux flush to life.
A flawless flush won’t work without a flawless base, don’t you think? Begin by applying a makeup primer, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Lock Makeup Primer. The radiant formula will give your complexion a glowing boost and create an even canvas for the rest of your face makeup.
Next, perfect your complexion with a lightweight, buildable foundation, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 Hour Fresh Wear Foundation, Lightweight. Buff and blend the foundation using a makeup blender for a seamless finish.
Reach for your cream blush and apply a single stroke to each cheekbone. Lightly blend the color with your fingertips or your makeup blender for a natural flush.
What’s blush without a bit of highlighter to match? Take your face makeup up a notch by popping the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Shimmerista Highlighting Powder onto your cheekbones, as well as the tip of your nose and cupid’s bow.
While not 100% necessary, adding a bit of shape and structure to your brows can make all the difference in your overall beauty look. To keep things natural yet polished, brush your brows with a spoolie. Then sweep on the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Boost & Set Brow Mascara in Clear to keep it all in place.
Almost done! Complete your blushing makeup look with a few spritzes of a setting spray to ensure no fading or transfers. Spray on the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray and Set Make-Up Oil-Free Setting Spray in “X” and “T” motions to do the trick.
Okay, now you know about our best cream blush and how to use it, but you may be curious as to why you should part with your tried-and-true powder blush in the first place. Well, don’t get us wrong; we’re still huge fans of powder blush—there just so happen to be certain occasions that call for a cream. Not sure what those could be? Here are five times to consider wearing cream blush.
Wear a cream blush when…your skin is dry. Whether you have chronically dry skin or are a temporary victim, the last thing your complexion needs is powder makeup, since powder formulas can emphasize flakes and dryness—no thanks!
Wear a cream blush when…it’s cold outside. During the winter, the weather tends to be cold and dry. This lack of moisture in the air can result in dry skin. And like we mentioned above, dry skin and powder formulas are a losing combination. Instead, do your skin a favor by opting for a hydrating cream blush during the winter months.
Wear a cream blush when…you’re in a rush. Short on time? A cream blush is a great option for adding color to your cheeks without the need for added fuss. All you need to do is swipe, blend with your fingers, and go!
Wear a cream blush when…you’re on-the-go. Whether you’re traveling to a tropical island or staying a friend’s apartment, a cream blush is an easy option you can take with you. Since you can blend the product out with your fingertips, there’s no need for a makeup brush. All you need is to pop your cream blush into your bag.
Wear a cream blush when…you want precise blush placement. Sure, powders can be used for targeted blush application, but creams are ideal for the most precise placement since there’s no need to worry about fallout.
