Cream Blush: The Simple Guide To Getting It Right

Remember that old slogan, "A Little Dab'll Do Ya"? That's pretty much our philosophy when it comes to cream blush. All we need is the teensiest, tiniest flush of color to make it look like we're bright-eyed, well-rested, and ready to take on the world. And, should we be a little too stingy in our application, we love cream blush for its build-ability. It's (almost) impossible to go wrong.

But, we can see how cream blush might be a little foreign to powder devotees. So, we broke it down into simple, easy-to-follow steps. The end result is a pretty glow that looks natural beyond belief. Watch out, powder: There's a new kind of blush in town.
