I’ll do the same, and sometimes a light dusting of finishing powder can help tone down the blush for me.

But more often than not I’ll own it. There have been days where I’ll stroll into the office, announce that I’m feeling like Trixie Mattel before anyone can say anything about the blush situation, and carry on. That used to happen more with liquid blushes, and I’ve since stopped using those. Creams and powders for me!

No such thing as too much blush! But seriously, same thing but with a Beauty Blender. Even if I applied foundation with a brush initially, I find I get the best finish gently pressing the Beauty Blender over the area and kind of gently blending with the foundation that way.

I try and buff it out with a clean brush. Problem is, my skin has a lot of natural redness, but in different spots, so the blush will look patchy fast if I don’t apply more in the “gaps” between the pigmentation. It’s weird. And annoying. And sometimes I just say “fuck it” and go out with a blush clown face.

Buffing with a clean, flat topped brush will often remedy the situation and if not, a buffing with some pressed powder foundation will take care of it. Even a buffing over with a facial tissue works.

I try to blend it out as much as I can. I tried in the past to correct it with foundation or concealer and the results were worse… I could just wipe it down and do the make-up all over again.

Usually buffing over it with some face powder and a clean brush for the trick. If it’s really OTT, I’ll press a tissue over the top to pick up excess pigment, and then go over it lightly with the foundation left over on my beauty blender.

Use low pigment blush so it doesn’t happen 🙃

Seriously though if it was that bad I’d have to take it all off and start over. My redness always amplifies blush so I’d have to restart so I don’t look ridiculous.

Thankfully, I hardly ever do that! But when I do, I’ll use some of my finishing powder and buff, buff baby. If all else fails, a highlighter or blush topper will fix it.

As I have a fairly softish kind of coral tone, it is hard for me to over apply. I use an angled blush brush and I just pick up a bit of product at a time. If I did over apply, I would dial it down with some setting powder.

Depends how bad it is. I use a finishing powder or at the least a brush that had powder on it at some point to blend it all a bit but if it’s really bad I use my foundation brush or if I’m wearing only conclearer my sponge I applied the concealer with.

It has been interesting reading everyone’s techniques for this! Like most of you, I use the leftover foundation on my sponge to sheer it out if buffing over it with my finishing powder doesn’t diffuse it sufficiently. I use cream brush so I am usually able to sheer it out with my fingers but occasionally I have some too close to the midface so I will go over with a foundation brush first and a sponge second. Worst case scenario, and this is rare, I will take concealer and go over it and if necessary re-apply.

Story of my life! This is why I prefer less pigmented blush! I don’t wear foundation, but I can usually rub away too much cream/liquid blush, or if it’s too much powder I’ll use some neutral face powder to buff it out.
