Find the right blush formula for your skin type.
Picking the right blush is about more than just the shade — you need to find the perfect formula, too.
There are three types of blushes: powders, creams, and stains.
If you have oily skin, a cheek stain works well. Stains look dewy and last for ages, even if you tend to sweat or have oil-prone skin. Apply a little at a time — once it sets into your skin, it's hard to blend out.
If you have normal or combination skin, creamy formulas are great and have high staying power. Cream blush is easy to use for most skin types, comes in tons of colors, and gives skin a fresh, youthful look.
If you have dry skin, stick with a powder formula. Powder blush is great for gliding over pores for a blurring effect and despite popular belief, stains and creams aren't so great for dry skin: They can crack when they dry, which exacerbates the look of dryness.
