Those of you regular readers will know I’m not the biggest fan of liquid/cream blushes. There’s nothing wrong with them in theory and I like the idea of layering them under a powder to promote wear time but I just cannot get the hang of the blending. I haven’t found the right brush, the right technique or maybe I’m just rubbish.. I’m not generally very good with eyeshadow either but I’ll have a go with powder.. even cream but liquid.. I just can’t. Every time I’ve tried I’ve ended up smearing off whatever foundation I had and replacing it with a smudge of liquid colour, it’s not cute. I have tried these with my regular brushes etc and felt the same way but I wanted to share them as they’re great value and lovely colours if you can make a liquid blush work for you.
What I really like about this selection is that there’s a good variety of finishes and they’re not all super bold. There are some much sheerer colours for those of us who are heavier handed when it comes to blush and whether that was intentional or it was an accidentally inconsistent collection it works in their favour as there’s really something for everyone. With that in mind I’m going to be testing out some different methods of application over the coming week or to see if I can master the liquid blush. My first port of call will be the beauty blender as it’s made everything else look so much more flawless, I’m hoping it will do the same here. If you have any tips or tricks to share I’d love to hear them as well as any links to particularly great YouTube tutorials.. remember I’m a total noob so as idiot proof as possible, please. I will come back to you when I’ve done my trial and let you know if there’s any hope for those of you like me who just CAN’T. MAKE. IT. WORK.
