When it comes to perfectly finishing your makeup, I firmly believe that Maskcara Beauty blushes have superpowers. Nothing wakes your face up quicker than a swipe of one of their incredible cream blushes.
Get a Beautiful Look Without Full Face Makeup
Let's be honest, I am a full-time mama on duty 24/7! So there are days I may not even have the three minutes for my full face routine, but I always swipe on a blush as a way to look put together in a flash (and mascara, when I haven't had time to get a refill on my lashes!). I strongly feel that a pop of color on the apples of your cheeks is the easiest, quickest way to fake that you’re wearing a whole makeup ~lewk~ without actually having to put much effort in.
And I’m not kidding about the effort thing. Lately, I’ve fallen in love with a handful of blushes that take a total of two seconds to apply, blend, and look incredible. They’re so versatile and I use them for my cheeks my lips and are now staples in my makeup bag, and applying blush is newly my favorite step out of my entire beauty regimen, skin care included (no joke).
Rocking a hint of pink or coral on my cheekbones and on my lips just makes me feel like a Disney princess who just found out her prince has a crush on her (in the best possible way), and this cute look lasts all day long.
“I love blush because it adds an instant aliveness to the skin,” says Jeannie Vincent, a Boston-based makeup artist. “And if you’re good about your sunscreen, blush can help you fake a sun-kissed glow. A true instant pick-me-up.” Her hot tip? Stick with cream formulas like the ones I will share below, since they’re so easy to apply and you can even use them as lipstick too. They’re basically “goof-proof,” she says.
Now let me share with you the best-of-the-best blushes to add to your bag!
How To Use Cream Blushes
Maskcara IIID Foundation lip + cheek is a smooth and long-lasting cream that comes in perfect shades to bring out the natural flush in your cheeks! These shades make the face appear more youthful and warm your complexion.
How you use it: Apply this product with a brush, sponge, or fingertips to the apples of your cheeks and to the center of your lips. You can use the Maskcara lip + cheek colors for a pretty blush on your cheeks, lip, eyeshadow and even as concealer. SAY WHAAA!? Yes, concealer!
This may all sound a bit weird, but it's true! You can really use these lip+cheek colors as a concealer! For instance, Frenchie is a great color corrector for the under eye area. Do you have Dark Circles under your eyes? Then Frenchie might be just what you need to conceal them! Apply Frenchie under your eyes and then you can go over it with your normal highlight/foundation color!
If you have some brown spots, Petal might be great at concealing them! Try it out!
You can use your finger of the B squared Bronzer and Blush Brush...either way works great!
Why it’s better: All blushes double as a lip color and a cheek color, saving you money and space in your makeup bag! Our blushes are highly pigmented which means only a small amount of product is needed to get the color you want. Our blushes on average last for 6-12 months!
