Why Crème Blush?

As we age, the hardest product to make appear natural is blush. This is because the area at the top of the cheek where we smile – our expression lines – becomes more visible; and our skin gets dryer. To convey a more youthful appearance in your cheeks, use a creme formula. This will keep your cheeks soft and supple and will make the skin appear smooth as possible.

This spring season there are a variety of formulas and tones that will give the just blushed look. Stick to lighter shades if you have fair skin and darker shades if you have tanned, olive or dark skin. My favorite creme blush are all easy to apply and will liven up even a natural makeup application. Keeping it fresh for spring begins with glowing skin and these cream blushes will make the transition easy breezy.

Application Tip

Did you know that using your fingertips to apply the product will give you more control? It allows the product to be placed in the correct spot and how much will be applied. No more guessing if your blush brush has released the right amount of powdered color to the right area of your cheek.
