‘Tis the season we wish we were a bear so we could seek refuge from the cold and hibernate all winter season long.

WATCH: TikTok Makeup Hack – gloss colouring.

But alas, we must continue living our lives – and while our winter wardrobe is super fun, our beauty routine can take a hit.

And nope, most definitely not because our skills are lacking – more due to the dryness of our skin which makes makeup application a little harder. Smooth skin? Sometimes we just don’t know her. 

But fret not! There’s a winter hack that’s been sitting in your summer makeup bag all along – the oh-so humble cream blush.

This makeup item is usually mistaken for a hot weather and festivals only option. However, it is actually much more helpful for winter.

When your skin is on the dryer side, powdered products can crack and sink into lines on your face, but a cream blush will blur all that and give you a bright glow.

Cream blush is also super versatile and can be used as a lip colour or eye shadow, as well as on your cheeks. 

Here are some celebs looking ethereal in cream blush:

Bridgerton actress Phoebe Dynevor is wearing a full Glossier look in this photo (why can’t Glossier come to our shores? Truly a tragedy). She has opted for a monochromatic light rose look, which compliments her porcelain complexion.

Hailey’s skin is always glowing no matter what makeup she puts on her face, but this glowy look is our vibe – the brighter the better!
