Temptalia’s Tips

  1. I find that cream blushes apply best over bare skin or a sheer liquid foundation–and better when the liquid foundation is still slightly wet/damp.
  2. Sometimes, I prefer to apply the cream blush over bare skin with a heavier application, then lightly stipple liquid foundation around the edges. This is great for when cream blush doesn’t seem to play well with your foundation.
  3. Fingertips tend to be one of my favorite tools for blending out a cream blush, but sponge tip applicators, stippling brushes, and the like work well, too. The warmth of my fingertip tends to help keep the blush movable.
