Your making me Blush!!

Did you know that based on your skin, you may want to use a different blush? 

There are 3 basic kinds of blush:
Gel / Liquid Stains

Cream Blushes would be great for dryer skin types. A lot of cream blushes have some type of vitamin E or Aloe in them to help sooth skin and add moisture. Aging skin.. More Mature skin would also be great in this category. Powder tends to settle into fine lines and wrinkles, or make them more pronounced. Instead, when you use a cream blush, it tends to mimic skin and look as natural as possible.

Powder blushes are best for oily skin types. Powder tends to absorb oil, and therefore helps to make the skin have more of a matte finish. Younger skin is best for this blush as well, as it often has shimmer or luminosity to it.

Gel and Liquid Stain blushes are the hardest to work with application wise. You can use a brush, or your finger - which in my opinion is better because it warms the product up to make it more blend-able. Some people use their lipstick as a blush, and that would also fall under this category. Lipstick can make a great blush, and it takes the guess work out of matching the two together. These kinds of blushes are really good for all skin types, but especially textured skin (wrinkles, hair, etc.). It will appear natural to the skin, and usually stay on the longest.

Are you using the right blush for your skin type? 
Hope this helps you next time you choose a blush!
