Does Your Blush Disappear? Glow All Day With These Simple Tips

  • 2 min read

BY CHELSEA SIMMONS

Does blush disappear on your face? It used to evaporate on mine, so I always left the house looking like a clown, hoping it would last till noon. Recently, I was lucky enough to have my makeup done at an event by our makeup artist and educator, the amazing Kevin Mendelson. He said if my blush disappeared, it was because my skin was dehydrated.

I started using Dream Tint Tinted Moisturizer every day under my PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation (I used to just use it on weekends instead of foundation) and I also began taking omega fatty acid supplements. My skin looks more plump and smooth than it has in ages. Sometimes I even forget to moisturize after cleansing because it doesn't feel tight! Best of all, I applied my makeup at 8 o'clock this morning and I just checked in the mirror (it's 3 pm); I don't need a touch up. No more disappearing blush!

A natural flush makes you look awake, healthy and vibrant. For cheeks that are natural and glowing all day long, try this after applying Dream Tint, but before foundation if you are wearing it. Smile to find the apples of the cheeks and then rub a streak or two of In Touch Cream Blush straight from the tube on the part that sticks out the most. I know you've heard that part a million times but here is the key: apply color no closer in than the iris of your eye, and then blend up and out using the Foundation Brush. This simple make-up technique really opens up the face and makes a huge difference (thanks Jane)! If I am already (gasp) at my desk, I use my fingers to blend and it works just fine. Then go on to apply your regular foundation. You will look lit from within. How simple is that?
