I apply the blush using my fingers and gently blend it where I want it to sit. I recommend cleaning hands prior to touching the crème to prevent makeup, germs and other particles from embedding. For a natural flush try applying the blush prior to setting makeup. You may also use a stipple brush or sponge applicator, however I find that some sponges may absorb too much product.

Make Up For Ever HD Crème Blush Review
I prefer blush that blends easy, has great texture and looks smooth and seamless. Blush should compliment the skin to create an alluring effect and give a beautiful flush of color to the face.
Makeup Up For Ever has recently launched a line of wonderful HD crème blushes. These velvety smooth crèmes are designed to “be blendable and melt into the skin for long lasting results.” They also provide a “soft focus effect that diffuses light for a radiant finish.”
I love the texture of this blush because it is easy to work with, the pigmentation is good and it blends effortlessly. I also like that it is lightweight and once set it sculpts the cheeks for a soft, flawless finish. This blush is great for dry skin types because it is somewhat hydrating and does not cake into the texture of skin. The formula contains no glitter or sparkle so there is no highlight effect or underlying color which is preferable in a crème.
The HD blushes comes in a beautiful array of 16 shades. I have the blush in 210 Cool Pink which is a light, bubble gum pink. I would also like to try 410, 510 and 515 (seen below).
The Blush is 0.09oz and currently retails for $31 at Sephora you can check them out HERE
