Blur creams are a huge hit – and with good reason. They don’t simply make your skin silky smooth and flawless, they also contain complexion improving ingredients, sun protection and matting micro-sponges that absorb the excess oil. Find the best blur creams right here:
Put Vaseline on the lens
Blur cream is a bit more effective at blurring imperfections than BB- and CC-Creams as the name suggests. In fact they work just like the old camera trick where you rub Vaseline on the lens. The cream reflects the light, while simultaneously covering the skins little imperfections and smooths out wrinkles and fine lines.
Before makeup – or after
Start out with your usual skincare routine and apply blur cream as the last thing before you apply your makeup. Let it set for a few seconds before you apply your foundation. You can also use blur cream on top of your makeup, if you are in the need for a little extra matting and smoothing effect throughout the day.
Perfect skin in no time
Start by dabbing a little blur cream on the areas which you would like to smooth out, such as wrinkles, lines and red blotches. Dab larger areas on your forehead to mask pores and smoothen the skin structure.
Dab - don’t rub!
Do NOT rub in the cream! Simply dab it on and then give it a few seconds to set before applying any other makeup. Some blur creams only have a here-and-now effect, whereas others also work to improve the skins pores and texture. For example, Kiehls Micro-Blur Skin Perfector, which contains lipo hydroxy acid and extract from bark and lentils.
