The makeup industry is ever-evolving with new products coming out almost daily. It is hard to stay on top of all the changes with products that we use every day. You want to make sure you are using the best product for you so that you can always have a flawless look.
To make sure you are using the best products for you you need to make sure you know the differences between the products that are available. Knowing the pros and cons of the choices will help you decide.
Choosing the correct blush is one of the most important elements of your makeup look. It will bring color to your face and give you a natural glow.
Cream Blush is the best option for people with dry skin. It is more moisturizing than powder blush since it is cream-based.
People with darker skin tones normally have better results with cream blush. Powder is not always pigmented enough to show well on darker shades of skin.
When going for a natural look cream blush is often the best option. This is especially true when you are using liquid foundation as it will be very easily blended. You need to make sure to set your face when using cream blush because it will wipe off easily.
In the winter when the cold weather causes your skin to be dry, cream blush is the best choice. Cream blush will help to hold moisture in your face. Make sure to remember in the warmer months to avoid cream blush because it will sweat off easily.
If you do a lot of traveling cream blush also has an advantage over powder blush. Cream blush can be thrown in your bag and purse without any worry of a mess. It can also double as a lip color that looks especially glamorous when topped with a gloss.
If you have more mature skin powder blush can cause your fine line and creases to show. Cream blush is a better choice as it can help blend out fine lines and leave a young dewy look.
Powder Blush is a great choice for individuals with oily skin. Since it is in powder form it provides a more matte finish and helps to soak up the excess oil.
You are able to have more control over how bold the color is when using powder blush. You should apply powder blush with a brush; this is what allows you the added control. It also gives you the ability to easily blend away any harsh lines.
In recent years contouring has become popular in everyday makeup. You can use powder blush to achieve a more natural couture look.
Most makeup artists prefer powder blush because of its versatility. Since it is applied with a brush it gives the option to apply it anywhere someone would like a little extra natural glow.
Many people apply it to their temples and across their nose, anywhere you might blush naturally.
During the warmer months when sweating and being shiny becomes an issue we all face, powder blush is the obvious choice. Cream blush will just quickly be sweated away. Powder blush sets and stays in place better than cream blush, especially during hot summer days.
When you have mature skin you need to keep in mind that your face will need more moisture and you will have fine lines that can easily cause creasing. In most cases, powder blush will be the wrong choice because it will highlight these imperfections.
Now that you have all the knowledge to make an informed choice on what blush is better for your situation you must remember the most important rule. Pick and wear what makes you feel beautiful and you will always look breathtaking.
