PERFECTLY PINK CHEEKS? YES PLEASE!

Ok, so you guys know that I adore my Sigma Makeup brushes! I use most of them everytime I put on makeup. One brush that I used all the time when I first got them, the SS190 for foundation, hasn't been on my hit list lately. It's not that I don't like it, it just seems that as of late, I can't get a smooth application. Is my dry skin the culpret? My technique? Not sure. But I had to find a way to incoporate it back in my routine!
My answer? To use with my Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush! I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner! This was the perfect soloution all along.




I've always put on the Dream Mousse with my fingers, but I'm not opposed to using one of my lovely brushes as well! I decided to try my SS190 and see what happens. I dabbed just a bit on one side of the brushes and patted it on the apples of my cheeks and swept it back to blend. Results? I'm very pleased!





It's hard for blush to show up on camera, but trust me, in person it gave me such a natural glow! I love it! Don't forget to clean your brushes with a quick brush cleaner! I recently cleaned my bushes with olive oil. I have never done that before, but heard it was great. I ended up washing them with baby shampoo right after, just in case! It seemed to make my natural brushes super clean and my synthetic brushes greasy! So from now on, I'll just wash my natural brushes. But try it if you haven't yet!

I like the Maybelline Mousse blush and I have it Rose Petal or something... but it is so shimmery! I just don't feel comfortable wearing it all by itself either b/c I feel like the staying power is not so great.

@Hope, thanks! You should try it!

@doodles, yes, I have Rose Petal too...funny, I don't see any shimmer in mine. How odd! You're right about the staying power though. I put a few layers on a set with light powder. I'm sure you look great with it on!
