DIY Cream Blush: How to Make Your Own Cream Blush Using Only Two Ingredients + Tips

Happy Sunday Gals!

Today I have a super quick and easy DIY cream blush recipe to share with you, a recipe that on uses 2 ingredients, and I have also included a few cream blush tips & tricks.

DIY cream blush, how to make your own cream blush.




As you all know, I am such a huge fan of cream blushes because they add an instant boost of soft radiance to the complexion. They are my go to blushes during the cooler months when my skin tends to dry out. You can take a peek at my fav cream blush in My Everyday Blush Essentials: Fall Edition

Ok, so let's get started!

 You will need:
  • 1 unscented pure shea butter lip balm tube
  • 1/2 tsp TINte Shimmering Face Pearls "Rose Petals" (or you can use any eyeshadow  pigment of your choice)

Method:

In a small bowl, mix the shea butter and face pearls together until a smooth consistency is achieved. Transfer into a small container and place in the fridge for 30 mins to set. Apply to your cheeks.

Voila! How easy was that?  A soft buttery creamy glam-worthy blush that you can make in little to no time.

Hot Tips

Now as amazing as I think cream blushes are, they are not for everyone, so whether you decide to make your own or purchase from your favourite makeup brand, you should know that cream blushes work best on:


  • Dry Skin- A dry skin will benefit immensely from cream blushes as they will add moisture and give the skin a warm beautiful glow.

  • Mature Skin - As we age our skin tends to lose moisture becoming drier and dull looking, so a cream blush will work wonders on mature skin as it adds moisture and luminosity  resulting in a fresh dewy finish, which gives the skin a more youthful appearance.


For oily/combination skin types, I would not recommend a cream blush for you unless the formula is oil free. In my opinion, a better option for oily/combination skin  would be to choose a water based cheek stain instead.

However, If you're preference is to use a cream blush, you can take a peak at my "How to Summer Proof Your Cream Blush" video.The same tips and techniques apply for oily skin types.

  6. I have quite dry skin, especially at this time of year and so I can imagine cream blushes could be very helpful in attaining that 'dewy' look! :)

  22. That's a really good idea, Keisha!
    I melt lip balms and mix them with tinted products, too, but to use as tinted lip balms. I feel so intimidated by cream blushes!
