Summer stopped by this week, and my apartment’s been hotter than Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
It was so hot last night that I couldn’t even bear to cook a real meal for dinner, so I cooked with some Benefit makeup instead
Say hello to Benefit That Gal Brightening Face Primer ($28).
It’s a shimmery, light pink liquid face primer used to prep skin for foundation and to add a subtle glow.
But apparently that’s not all it does. A friend of mine at Benefit suggested using That Gal to turn powder blushes into creams.
That Gal + powder blush = pretty cream blush
First, I dabbed a dollop of That Gal on the back of my hand.
Next, I took Benefit Coralista and ran the brush that comes with it across the top of the pan to loosen some powder.
Then, I loaded the brush with as much of the loosened powder as possible and deposited it beside That Gal on my hand.
And mixed the two together with a finger…
That’s it. A new creation! A pink and coral cream blush with shimmer. Pretty, yah?
After trying the technique with Coralista, I gave it a try with Dallas blush. The resulting peachy brown cream blush has a hint of pink shimmer.
One thing to keep in mind, though — the concoction dries quickly, so ya best bust a move to get it on your cheeks with a quickness.
