Tips for Making Blush Last Longer
I’ve used several blushes whose colors looked quite beautiful but which would fade from my cheeks even before lunch time rolled around. This is true of a lot of powder blushes. There are some which have good lasting power, as I discovered when I got the Nars Deep Throat Blush, but I wish all blushes could last all day on my cheeks. I’ve been playing around with my blushes and other makeup as well as doing research, and wanted to share some tips for making blush last longer.
1. Use primer
Not everyone uses primer. I, for one, tend to skip it because either I forget to apply it or just don’t feel like having an additional layer of product on my face. However, primer is essential if you want your makeup to last. It helps extend the wear of foundation, as well as blush. If you want to do minimal makeup and are skipping foundation, try applying primer on your cheeks, then putting on your blush. Liquid, gel, cream, or powder, primer should make it last longer.

2. Layer blushes together
I’ve tried layering a cream blush underneath a powder one and it definitely helps the powder blush wear longer. Find a not so pigmented cream blush, take a small amount of it, and apply on cheeks. Then, dust powder blush over it. As long as only a thin layer of the cream blush is applied, it shouldn’t highly affect the color of the powder dusted on top of it. The combination of cream + powder helps blush adhere to cheeks longer. You may also try using a liquid or gel cheek tint underneath powder blush.
3. Set it with translucent powder
There are a lot of translucent powders you can use that help set color and make it stay in place. After applying your blush (whether it’s powder, cream, liquid, or a combination of these), gently dust on translucent powder over it to set. A powder puff works well for this, as well as a big fluffy brush. Use a light hand so as not to disturb the application of the blush underneath. Make sure the powder you use is translucent, so it won’t alter the color of your blush.
4. Spritz on a makeup setting spray
Setting sprays do just that—set makeup into place. If you’ve never used one, there’s no need to worry that it’ll douse you with liquid, since these usually emit just a fine spray. Some popular setting sprays are MAC Fix+ and Skindinavia, and a lot of Asian cosmetics brands like Nature Republic and Missha offer various mists and setting sprays. Do research and read reviews on the particular product you want to buy or use to get an idea of its effectiveness and if it’s ideal for your skin type. These help not only foundation to last longer, but blush as well.
Now, you don’t have to do all these things together at once, you may add just one of these steps to your makeup routine, and that little extra step can help improve the wear of your blush already. Try them to see which method, or which combination of these steps work best for you.
