Got a little heavy handed with the rouge? Or did the pigmentation of your newest blush catch you by surprise? Hello Daniel Sandler’s Watercolour Fluid Blusher.
It happens: sometimes I get too much colour to the cheeks when I’m applying my makeup in poor light.
But you can fix it without starting over- here’s how.
It’s a doozy really; all you need is:
- some thermal water spray (or just regular water in a misting spray bottle)
- a clean buffing brush
- translucent powder
LIghtly mist the areas where you have excess blush, then sheer out the colour using the buffing brush in an upward motion towards the temples. Take care not to blend too far out of the cheek area. You might need to respray and buff again depending on how much product you need to get rid of.
Once you are happy with the look, dust with some translucent powder over the cheeks to set.
This method works best with liquid, gel and cream blushes.
For powder blush, you might be able to get away with just using the translucent powder. Or try a touch of powder foundation buffed over the area if too pigmented.
Try it. Let me know if it works for you.
