How to Apply Cream Blush

I’ve received a lot of emails over the past few weeks from you lovely readers asking how to use cream blush.

It’s a product that a lot of people seem to avoid using but it’s one of the easiest (and quickest) ways of achieving that gorgeous rosy glow.

SO – after a long time, I have finally made my first youtube video showing you how easy it is to use cream blush without any makeup brushes.

I know that I’m not talking but give me time and I’ll get round to the idea of talking to no-one hahaha!

How to Apply Cream Blush – No Makeup Brushes Needed

I don’t see the need to use make-up brushes when applying a cream blush, it just makes more sense to me to use my hands as the warmth will in effect ‘melt‘ make-up allowing it to blend easily on the skin.

Makeup brushes tend to drag the cream blush making it look patchy and quite uneven so I prefer and always recommend using your hands when it comes to cream blush.

So, let me know what you think!

I would love you all if you could subscribe to my channel too – love you! 😀

My next video will be all about easy smoky eyes! 😉

    Ah Cute Layla! Love the video…I actually prefer videos where people dont talk lol so I loved it! Ive subscribed:) Yeah I love cream blushes too becayse they just look more dewey and theyre sooo easy to apply and you can always wear a translucent powder over them if you want it matte!I havent seen those blushes here (other products by them yes, but that blush no). So cute!

    Wow the cream blush looks gorgeous on you! I personally try and avoid blush because I always find that it makes my cheeks look too red.

      Aww thank you so much!! You can use as much or as little as you like depending on the look, I used more just for it to show in the video but you can add a really tiny amount and blend so it’s like a really natural glow 🙂 xxx

    Hi Layla,
    Thanks for taking the time to comment over on my blog!
    Cream blush does seem super intimidating. I wonder if you have any opinions about cream blush vs powder blush on dry winter skin?
    I’m going to go check out your video/channel.
