How to Make a Cream Blush

by Lesley Kim

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 to make a cream blushhow to make a cream blushFor 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)how to make a cream blushDirections:

  • 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.
