Many of us realize that there are so many ways to get that perfect look, depending on the makeup products we use. One of the greatest things about makeup is that it has a transformative quality that can make us feel more confident and appear a certain way. With all of the many types of products that are available: mascaras, lipsticks, foundations etc. And all of the many brand names, finding the correct fit for you and your skin may take a little bit of trail and error.
When it comes to the lovely blush colors that are used to both contour and brighten up your cheekbones, many people have different opinions on what works best: creme, power or gel. Listed below are some of the benefits of using a gel blush.
They last longer. Most normal powdered blushes only last a couple of hours, maybe a little bit more if they are applied and sealed a certain way with a makeup sealant. Gel blushes are made to last a longer amount of time, which means that there won’t be any need to constantly reapply it. When you check your makeup in the mirror, throughout the day and night, you will be pleasantly surprised that it hasn’t worn off with time.
It creates a more natural look. Most gel blushes are made in a way to both highlight and accentuate the cheeks in a natural manner. The formula within the product does an excellent job of blending well into the skin. Sometimes with powdered blushes, there can be a caked on effect or there can appear to be a blending issue. With gel blushes, they easily melt into and work well with both your natural skin and other makeup, such as foundation, you may already have on.
It’s good for oily skin types. Those who experience an excess of oil on their skin will love gel blush. It does a good job of working with the natural elements of the skin and minimizing the appearance of any oil. Those who have oily skin may find that when they use powered blush, they appear ashy or create an dry, undesirable look. Gel blushes mix well and compliment oily skin.
Better color payoff. One of the best things about using a gel blush is the amount of color payoff that is associated with this type of product. So many powdered and even creme blushes lack the ability to create a rich color payoff on skin that is actually noticeable and flattering. Some of the colors come out too muted or too strong. With the right gel blush, the color payoff is excellent and one that lasts all day.
When you are deciding what kind of cosmetic products to use, it is important to try things that work well with your skin type and what you are going to be using it for. Gel blushes are a great way to get a blush that is long lasting, creates a natural look and has high color payoff. Makeup is one of the greatest ways for us to express ourselves, it is of paramount importance that when we put it on, we get the results that we desire.
