·         If you want a natural looking rosy glow coming from the face without looking too much of made-up with makeup, apply a cream blush with a fluffy blush rush or clean fingers on your cheeks according to your face shape and then apply your normal foundation over that. After that, take a tad bit of powder blush in the same color of cream blush and put on top of these layers.
·         If you ever think, that the blush that you have applied is too over-the-top, you can also dust on some loose translucent face powder on top of that to tone everything down.
·         If you want a more dramatic makeup look, after you have applied foundation, put on a layer of powder blush and post that, take an angular blush brush and again put on some blush on your cheeks to get rosy cheeks.
·         If you have oily skin, stick to powder blush. However, if the skin is dry or you got a bit of wrinkles and fine lines, go for cream blush. Also powder blush is best to be used in hot humid weather, but if its winter then you can always use cream blush.
If you want the blush to stay on longer, like overnight, first apply a cream blush and then on top of it, apply a powder blush of similar color.
