Thanks to Namuna, better known as @caspertheghosty, who recently shared this on TikTok, we can now save a few pennies with this clever hack.

The trick is simple:

  1. Grab your favourite cream blusher
  2. Layer serum on top of it
  3. Mix and apply the blend onto your cheeks – it’s akin to using a colour-tinted serum or a liquid blush.

Potential Drawbacks to Keep in Mind

While this blusher hack offers a cost-effective way to achieve a dewy skin effect, there are potential drawbacks that you should be aware of.

One concern is the risk of bacterial growth when a water-based serum is mixed with a cream formula.

The moisture introduced by the serum could create the perfect breeding ground for bacteria to thrive in if the mixture is left sitting for an extended period. Using that concoction can lead to breakouts and even rashes.

Plus, should you prefer the original cream consistency over the liquid blend, restoring the cream formula can pose quite the challenge.

Once the two products are mixed, separating them back into their original states becomes tricky, potentially leading to product waste.

A Solution to the Dewy Blush Hack

A more hygienic and flexible approach would be to mix the cream blusher and serum separately, allowing you to control the ratio and avoid potential contamination issues.

This way, you can still enjoy the benefits of the hack without jeopardising the integrity of your cream blusher.

And there you go! With just one simple step, you can convert your cream blush formula into a liquid one, achieving the same dewy skin effect often seen on celebrities!
