Beauty Tip Tuesday #7: Long-lasting Blush

Minus those mornings when a cozy bed and the snooze button are just too tempting, I enjoy putting on some makeup as part of my morning routine.  However, if you're anything like me, you want to put it on and not be bothered to have to reapply later on in the day.  I always have good intentions by throwing in my lipstick or powder in my bag, but let's face it, they end up just sitting there.  With that said, long-lasting makeup is key to being able to apply and forget about it.  Here's how to get blush that will last all day without fading.

Once you've applied your foundation/BB/CC/whatever your base may be, you'll want to use a cream blush.  A good drugstore one is made by NYX and is available at Ulta.  If you're feeling crazy and want to try a more high end product, the Josie Maran Cheek Gelees are a great choice.  Use your fingers or a stippling brush (like the one from Real Techniques) to apply the cream blush.  Then, use a powder blush in a similar color to pop over the top.  This really helps set everything and makes it last literally all day.  Tarte makes an amazing blush but if you're looking for something a little more budget friendly, Milani Baked Blush and Physicians Formula Happy Booster blushes are good options. 

What are your tips for long lasting makeup?
