Why You Should Be Using Liquid Blush Instead of Powder—Plus, The 5 Best Liquid Blushes To Shop
There was a time when powder makeup was the only way. That time is over. While we're generally a sentimental bunch (even when it comes to classic beauty products), we're happily bidding adieu to this old-school mindset. Powder makeup, particularly foundation, bronzer, and blush, can have a way of making your skin look dry and cakey. If your goal is radiant, natural-looking skin that's got a youthful boost, liquid is a secret weapon to start wielding, stat.
The difference between liquid blush and powder blush is apparent in both how they're used and how they look. Liquid blush often lasts much longer, blends more easily into your skin, can be built up slowly, and offers a hydrated flush that won't dry out your complexion. Powder blush can appear dull or matte, which can be counter-productive when trying to have a natural and youthful look. For liquid blush, you can use your fingers, a stipple makeup brush, or a makeup sponge to apply; and you're able to choose from different finishes, whether you prefer something super glowy or something more subtle. You can even layer powder blush over liquid blush for an extra pigmented pop.
Once you cross over to liquid blush, we doubt you'll ever go back. Shop the 5 best liquid blushes on the market below.
