prepare yourselves for another beauty confession, my pets: i have a fear of cream blush. well, make that had a fear. i thought i had tried everything under the sun to get over this silly issue of mine until i met clinique’s blushwear cream stick. you see, my problem was application. do i use my fingertips? a brush? so confusing! with clinique, i do three dots in an upside down triangle on each cheek, then smudge and blend. voila! the beautiful dewy cheeks i’ve been chasing with a light and natural finish.
