There’s nothing worse than when your favorite cheek blush breaks into little pieces. When this happens, I typically crush the pieces to a powder form and turn this powder into a cream blush.
As I get older, I tend to lean towards cream blush because of its multi-tasking properties. Cream blush is perfect for dry skin, creating a dewy finish while moisturizing the skin. Today, I want to share an easy way to make your own cream blush from broken powder blush.For this tutorial on how to make a cream blush, you will need:
about 1 tsp of blush, crushed into powder
3/4 tsp of shea butter
1/2 tsp of shredded beeswax (I used a cheese grater on my 1 lb block of beeswax)
7-10 drops of oil (I used rosehip oil, but you can use coconut oil, avocado oil, olive oil, or any other oil that you prefer)
a clean, sterile container (I used an old MAC blush container)Directions:
- Melt the beeswax in the microwave until it turns into a liquid form. I did about 10 seconds intervals until it was fully melted. Be careful as this will be very hot.
- Melt the shea butter and mix with the beeswax.
- Add the oil and stir until everything has mixed together.
- Add the crushed powder and mix well.
- Transfer to a clean container.
Now you have a personalized cream blush that will not only look dewy, but will also moisturize your skin. If you like, you can mix different shades to create your own unique color. Adding different types of oils will also add a variety of antioxidants to your cream blush.
