Why Have Creams Become So Popular?
I think it's our obsession with glowing, radiant-looking skin that has us all on the endless search for the perfect combination of products. And I think Aussie makeup artists are actually at the forefront of this trend - dewy base, undetectable (but definitely there) highlighter, blush that looks like you've just been for a light jog - it's all in the product.
Previously, we've all reached for powder blushes, bronzers and contour palettes, but if it's that seemingly unattainable glow you're after, you might want to experiment with a cream formula.
Unlike powders, cream formulas can be manipulated a little bit more, warmed up with your fingertips and melted in to the skin for a more natural-looking finish. I also find creams to be much more buildable without going over the top, as they're easily blended out.
And if you're concerned about looking shiny, don't worry, here's more information about "precision powdering" to help navigate that.
What Products Should I Start With?
You don't have to transition all at once, trying cream formulas can be a gradual process - I'd probably recommend starting off with a cream highlighter and building your cream obsession from there.
