How to Make Your Blush Last Allllll Day


Want your blush to last all day?  Me too.  I’ve found the perfect formula for rosy cheeks that will stay put through all of the snuggling and baby drool.  Benefit’s Lip & Cheek Tints make it easy to get color that actually lasts.  They’re easy to apply, come in really pretty colors and make matching your lips and cheeks a no-brainer.

What you need:





You can use Benefit’s Lip & Cheek Tints on their own or layer them under powder blush for long-lasting, gorgeous color.  Since so many of my friends have asked how to use them (they kind of look like a bottle of nail polish – brush and everything) I thought they’d be perfect for my first video tutorial.

Lollitint” is a gorgeous purple-hued color.  To make it last, I pair it with Tarte’s Amazonian Clay Blush in “Dollface” and Laura Gellar’s “Love Me Dew” Moisturizing Lip Crayon in “Purple Currant.”  Tarte’s blush is my absolute favorite powder blush because the color pay off is incredible, they’re long-lasting and come in a number of really beautiful shades.  Laura Gellar’s lip crayons manage to achieve that elusive combination of color AND moisture and have come in so handy in this cold weather.  (Schools were closed due to 40 below wind chills last week.  It’s cold.)

Cha Cha Tint” is a beautiful coral. When I want a little more color and longevity I add Tarte’s blush in “Fearless” and Laura Gellar’s Lip Crayon in “Watermelon Cooler.”

Benefit also has the original “Benetint” (rose color) and “Posietint” (pretty pink) that I like as well.  I wear all four colors and find that they all work with a variety of skin tones.

Wearing Lollitint

I’m currently working on a highlight & contour tutorial, but the highlighter I used in the video is Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal . . . it . . . is . . .  Ah-mazing.

  1. Thank you! You’ve taken the guess work out of combination and application. Any recommendations for a powder blush to wear with Benetint?

  2. Thank you!! I’m so excited I’m going ro Ulta to play this afternoon. The biggest thing though was to apply blush under powder; I love how it tones down the color! I was doing it backwards!

  3. That was a fun post Scotti! I have a funny story about Cha Cha tint. I have it, and I love it, but I rarely wear it. Recently I went on holiday and wanted something easy in my makeup bag. (I usually pack with a basic makeup look with some varying lipstick colors.) Anyway, the blush, Cha Cha Tint, was very different. My husband–who rarely comments, was like, “What’s going on with your cheeks!?” I guess when using it I need to get a) better at the application and b) try a foundation over it! Thanks for these tips. I’m going to try to wear my Cha Cha tomorrow:D
