CREAM BLUSH FOR THE BEACH


With the weather being all kinds of gorgeous this week, it's hard not to daydream about spending this coming weekend on the beach. Only three more days to get through...keep on keepin' on! 

We all know that throwing together a makeup bag suitable for balmy beach days is one of the hardest beauty codes to crack, but have no fear, cream blushes are here. Creamy products can sometimes be intimidating, and whether the worry stems from the possibility of the sun melting the product or that it will get gunky all up in your pores, I promise they are not as scary as they appear. Taking the plunge and adding cream blushes to your beach beauty edit is one of the best and simplest ways to step up your game during the summer months. It can definitely be a struggle to define the line between wearing too much and too little on your face while frolicking on the sandy shores - but dabbing cream blush on the cheeks and lips is a fail proof formula for barely there beauty that requires only the tiniest bit of effort. 

If you are new to this category of beauty products, allow me to introduce you to some of my all time favorites for a fail proof smudge of color. In case you haven't heard, Nars tends to crank out some pretty amazing blushes and their cream products are no different. I love the Nars Matte Multiple in Laos, for a glitz-free rose colored stain and the Nars Multiple in Portofino, for a shimmering wash of coral that flatters all skin tones alike. For a stick that offers a bit more color variation there is the Benefit Fine One One, which is almost a hybrid of the two Nars multiples, but in a less pigmented version.  Don't get me wrong, a less intense flush can be a very good thing when it comes to beach days, so don't overlook this one. Another that I have been loving this summer is the Jouer Tint in Honeysuckle, a honeyed pink that casts a lit from within glow on the apples of the cheeks. Don't be fooled by its teeny size, this little babe packs a serious punch and is my personal favorite when it comes to multiple use, as it is the glossiest of the bunch making it perfect for adding some color to your pucker. 

All that's left is a bit of concealer and a slick of waterproof mascara and your good to go. Will you be trying your hand with cream blushes on your next beach trip?

  2. Hey Corinne! Although a very expensive option but I love the Chanel cream blushes a LOT! in fact Destiny has to be the most used cream blush of all times for me! Also Bobbi Brown makes lovely cream blushes.. although they are a bit more creamy and slick and take a few minutes to settle down

    1. Hey! I love recommendations - thank you! I now definitely have the Chanel cream blushes on my list as well. I have tried the Bobbi Brown ones as well and totally agree with you in that they are "slick." :)
