Blush and bronzers are having their moment in the makeup spotlight once again as more and more people are opting for a flushed, sculpted look. Unlike their powder counterpart, cream blush and bronzers offer the wash of colour while adding a kiss of radiant luminosity, thereby further adding dimension and liveliness.
To aid us with the application, we’ve got several tips from Rare Beauty‘s Global Stylist Cynthia Di Meo. Firstly, cream blush and bronzers can be worn on bare skin, over foundation or powder. But if you want greater staying power, apply it after setting the foundation with powder. Secondly, if you want to shape the face, Di Meo prefers using a brush to control the colour and placement. Fingers or a beauty sponge can work too, and it offers a softer flushed from within look. Finally, to retain the glow while ensuring longevity in Singapore’s heat and humidity, Di Meo emphasises the use of setting powder and setting spray. Don’t worry about the shine being dulled as “anything that has a glow or dewy finish will shine through eventually no matter how much powder you use to set.”
