One of the biggest secrets in the makeup world is that products are often formulated in the same way, just packaged as specific to a certain area of the face. This means that you can use a blush as an eyeshadow, an eyeshadow as a brow powder, or a lipstick as a cream blush.
Jules – More Than Makeup is a line of products that help you think like a makeup artist, and makeup artists need products that do double or even triple duty. Saving space and time shouldn’t be exclusive to the pros though, and JMTM addresses that by making it easy for you to streamline your personal kit.
You’ve heard of and probably tried our Redy or Not lip kit, and this beautiful red flatters every skin tone and stays put through hours and hours of wear. You may not have considered that you can also use this product as a cheek stain! Pretty cool, huh?
Red is a color I LOVE to use on cheeks. If you think about it, it makes sense – when you flush naturally, the blood rushes to your cheeks, so red blush ends up creating a very natural look. It’s also a great transition color for this time of year, when you may be tired of springy pinks or summery corals, but aren’t sure what else to use.
Creating a cheek stain is super simple, and with Redy or Not, a tiny bit goes a long way. By mixing a smidge of color with your moisturizer or makeup primer, you can make an easily blendable sheer color for your cheeks.
When I’m doing my own makeup, I use the back of my hand as a palette. Put a dab of moisturizer on the back of your hand, then dip a small foundation brush into the red so a little bit of color is deposited onto the brush. Swirl the brush into the moisturizer to mix the two together, then dab on your cheeks. When you are thinking about blush placement, concentrate it on the apples of your cheeks, and blend, blend, blend! Optional: Dust a bronzer over the top to really recreate that “I spent the day at the beach” glow!
