How to apply cream blush

Cream blush is beautiful when applied correctly.  The pigment lasts all days, really glides over the skin and gives your makeup an overall sense of balanced beauty.  However, it can be difficult to apply at first.

Bio-Blush by GS Products is a unique and universal blush, eliminating the frustrating step and hassle of trying to find a blush that works for you.  Designed by a prominent Hollywood Makeup artist, Bio-Blush works with your own natural undertones and self-adjusts to be the right tone for you!  The creamy consistency works well with all makeup applications but was specially designed for the Bio-Fond Foundation makeup.

The easiest way to apply Bio-Blush Cream Blush is with a sponge and a brush.  Using a clean sponge gently apply 3 small dots in an ascending line.  The first and lowest dab should be above the cheek bones and in line with the center of your eye.  The second dab is slightly higher and closer to the corner of the eye.  The third and final dab should be at the end of the eyebrow.

You can also apply blush to the top of your forehead, the bridge of your nose and chin area for an all-over glow!  Without applying any additional product, use the same blush brush after using it on your cheeks and swipe these three areas lightly and quickly for an accent of additional color.

No need to add any powder, Bio-Blush is an all-in-one product that needs no additional steps, you’re done!

Valentines Makeup How-To

I know that many people don’t celebrate Valentines Day for various reasons. Truth is though, it doesn’t have to be all about love between you and a significant other. You can have just as much fun on Valentines Day as all those going out on dates. And let’s be honest, how much fun is it to wait 2 hours for a reservation anyway? Whether or not you celebrate V-Day, here is a fun look you can do for the day.

Step 1: Apply moisturizing Primer. I recommend Hydro Pearls Makeup Primer because it is a water based primer so it won’t trap dirt and bacteria into your skin like so many other silicone primers can do.

highlight contour

Step 2: Contour your face depending on face shape

To determine your face shape compare a picture of yourself to these famous face shapes.

I used Gerda Spillmann Bio Fond Foundation and highlighter and bronzer (Bronze Special). I love this line of foundation because the concealers, bronzers, blush and foundation are all made of the same ingredients which makes for flawless blending. As an added bonus, this makeup is the last step of their skin care line. That means that it is good for your skin. It is also anti-aging and it has a physical UV block so you don’t have to reapply to get that protection that our skin needs.

Step 3. Eyes. Prime your eyes. You don’t want all that eyeshadow coming off, smearing or creasing. I recommend Urban Decay.

Step 4.  Here, you can choose any way to apply the red to your eyes. For the look in the first picture, I wanted the red to really stand out so I put it heaviest on her lids and faded it up. I put a darker red in her crease and under her eyes for a little more drama. Helpful Hint: Red eyeshadows tend to look more pink when you apply them. To counter this, wet your brush first so that it becomes more of a paint. Test it on your hand first if you are a little nervous as to how pigmented it will be. I used colors from various collections of the Naked Cosmetics because they are super pigmented.

Step 5. Fill in the eyebrows with red lip liner and then apply some more red eyeshadow over top.

Step 6. Clean up around eyes (you will probably have some loose pigment that fell off the brush).

Step 7. Apply your Blush. I kept a pretty light hand here with the blush. I used Gerda Spillmann Bio Blush. I love this blush. It is nice and creamy so it helps keep you looking moisturized throughout the day. It can be applied very lightly or darker as well. Plus, one color fits all. Seriously, I have put this on all my models, brides or whatever and it has been perfect for everyone. And it tends to look different on everyone according to skin tone, too.

Step 8. Apply your Mascara and fake lashes (if desired)

Step 9: Apply the fun stuff to your face! Here, I used crushed up candy canes. I attached each piece with eyelash glue. You can do this with sequins, diamonds or whatever floats your boat 🙂 Just as long as the things that you use are light enough to be held on with the glue. I actually had her tip her head to the side while it all dried on.

Step 10. I dabbed eyelash glue to my fingers and then dabbed it on with the candy canes. I then applied glitter.

Step 11. Cover your lips in red lipstick and then in eyelash glue (good thing it’s cheap!). Sprinkle a pile of glitter into the palm of one of your hands, pucker up and kiss the hand into the glitter. Keep your mouth like this until it is dry. If you open too quickly, you will have glitter all over your teeth. I learned that the hard way. You can kiss more than once if you want more glitter, just as long as the glue is still wet. Do it pretty quickly if you want.

Step 12. Clean up around edges.

All done! Practice a couple of times if you need to before you want to go out. It’s a fun look but it’s still beautiful. Have a happy Valentines day, even if you’re single!
