To do this tutorial you will need:
- A powder blush. I'm using the LA Colors blush I bought to do this tutorial
- A facial lotion. I have no idea which brand I used, my label came off. Oops
- A small bowl and a knife for mixing
- A small container to store it in.
First you need to crush up your blush. I don't want to make a ton at a time so I only broke up a fifth of the blush. This was I won't make more than I can use before it goes bad. Place the broken blush in your bowl.
Now to add the lotion. The more you add the sheerer the blush will be. I started out with just a teaspoon to mach the teaspoon of blush powder but that was too thick so I ended up adding a tablespoon of face lotion total.
The powder takes a bit to incorporate into the lotion, so just keep mixing and mixing. After a few minutes it should finally be coming together. Keep stirring until there are no chunks and it looks pretty even. You now have a cream blush!
As you can see, mine is sheerer than most store bought blushes, and because of the specific blush I used there's a significant amount of shimmer. I would like to point out that the blush I used is not as pigmented as most blushes so that's probably why the cream blush is light. I may use this as a cream highlighter instead of a straight blush, I really like how it looks when I blended it out a bit.
