Blur creams are bursting on to the beauty scene with full force and their power to hide imperfections is causing a stir. Here’s why you need one – now!
What are blur creams?
These magical creams visibly minimise pores, fine lines and shadows! They use line-filling ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and micro-filling pearls to work like putty on your pores and lines, while light-reflecting pigments brighten dark circles around the eyes.
How do you use them?
Use after your moisturiser and sunscreen – instead of a primer. Bend a small amount over your face and wait a few seconds before following with a foundation. Alternatively, they can be worn with no makeup to give your skin a fresh, natural and flawless finish. Blurs also work well patted over the top of your makeup during the day for touchups. The oil-free versions are brilliant for banishing mid-afternoon shine.
Who benefits from them?
Anyone who’s concerned with enlarged pores and fine lines, as it will give skin a smooth-looking appearance. Count us in!
