Cream Blush is preferred by a lot of older women who feel that their skin is dry and could benefit from a richer formula. For longer wear, apply cream blush, then dust with face powder and apply another pop of powder blush on top. Gel Blush is a nice option for smooth, young skin, since it is practically see-through.
Note: Wash your hands immediately after applying, as gel blush can stain your fingertips.
Powder Blush is the most popular choice. I recommend having two different tones in your kit one natural shade and a second that is slightly more colorful. For all-day blush, apply the natural blush first, then dust over it with a pop of the second blush to keep the color going. Donâ€™t use the brighter blush without first applying the more muted blush base for daytime wear, since it will look too harsh. A brighter application is fine for nighttime wear, however.
