If you don’t know what you’re doing, this liquid formula can ruin your base makeup and make you look patchy instead of a sun-kissed goddess.
You can’t go about applying liquid blush like a regular powder one; that’s a huge mistake. When applied incorrectly, it will definitely put you off and make you refrain from using liquid formulas. But don’t give up just yet! Once you know how to wear liquid blush, you’ll never give it up. These formulas give a dewy, lit-from-within flush that’s too good to pass up. So, if you have no clue how to wear liquid blush without ruining the rest of your makeup, here are some essential tips. This list of dos and don’ts will tell you exactly how to rock this luxe makeup item.
This restricts you from blending the blush properly. If you apply it directly, not only will it look patchy but it will also look unnatural and it could ruin the rest of your makeup. It will be tricky to judge how much product you used and how the results will look.
If you apply liquid blush after setting powder or any powder formula for that matter, it will ruin the smoothness of your makeup. The powder formula mixed with liquid blush will cause cracking and peeling of your makeup. You will notice the texture get disrupted and it will instantly turn you off.
When you dot the blush on your cheeks and then use a brush to blend, it gives an uneven application that is messy and can ruin the rest of your makeup. The brush strokes become more visible in certain places as the product is unevenly applied.
Liquid blushes can be used for a soft hint of colour on your cheeks without any base makeup. The finish is so natural that it can be used on your bare skin that is prepped with skincare. When you are applying liquid blush without any other base makeup on, you can go ahead and apply it directly without a worry as this way there aren’t layers of makeup that you can mess up with direct application.
The correct way to apply liquid blush is to first put some drops on the back of your hand first and then lightly swipe it on your hand to warm it up a bit and form a thick even layer. Now, swipe your brush on this layer to pick up the pigment and then blend it on your cheeks. This allows for even application and no patchiness or product wastage.
If you want a smooth base, apply liquid blush after primer, liquid foundation, and concealer. Usually, you set the base with setting powder first and then move on to apply powder blush. But, for liquid blushes, you make the blush a part of your base makeup and then use a setting powder over the liquid blush to set it in place.
This is one blush we love because it is loaded with skincare ingredients and therefore it can be applied on bare skin sans base makeup.
This illuminating blush is so gorgeous, it gives a satin finish and a lit-from-within appearance to the skin.
This iconic cheek tint is everything you could ask for from a liquid blush. It is easy to apply and blends beautifully on the skin.
Now that you know of the dos and don’ts to applying liquid blush, go ahead and add this viral makeup item to your beauty routine.
