Ever struggled with applying cream/liquid/mousse consistency blushers? Yeah, me too...What I want to advise is: always use a flat foundation brush to apply them. It's the best way in my opinion, and after applying it, just pat the foundation brush on the pillows of your cheeks to avoid any nasty streaks and to give an overall flawless finish to your cheeks.
I'm actually raging every time someone says 'pat it on with your fingertips', ehm...no! The warmth of your fingers will not give you a great result because it melts the product, therefore leaving 'nice' blusher patches behind (not a great look to sport). And I'm not a fan of buffing in the cream blusher either, I personally much prefer patting it on and finishing the look with a dust of face powder on top once the cream settles on the skin.
Pretty much same goes for liquid/cream highlighters too, the flat foundation brush is the 'bomb' for achieving fabulous results with all these products.
What method of application do you prefer? Agree or disagree?
