Let's Blush Things Up!

Check my recommendation list below, beautiful colors!

You're probably looking for a blush that can sit nicely on your skin. We understand powder blushes have their own game, but they don't do well all the time. Sometimes, we crave a cream blush that knows how to mix well with our skin. Cream blushes are in a league of their own if we are being honest.

  • Cream blushes are moisturizing.

  • Suitable for dry skin

  • Wonderful on mature skin.

This type of blush helps pose a dewier flush. It may seem like you've just blushed, but cream blushes have the potential to give that oomph! to your look that seems refreshed and add a natural glow.

What Is The Deal With Cream Blushes?

Cream blushes are lightweight products that add a subtle touch to your cheeks. If you have dry skin, then this is the one for you. Cream blushes, as the name suggests, are creamy, so they suit better dry skin.

A regular blush is a cosmetic item that adds color to your cheeks, and they help bring attention to your cheeks and complete your look. A blush will come in two forms:

  • Cream

  • Powder

Let's discuss the two:

Cream blush

The goal of a cream blush is to melt into your skin. You can use your fingers, a beauty blender, or a stippling brush like the one shown below, to apply cream blush. It all depends on what helps you blend your makeup well. If you think you can use your fingers, use them; they will melt the cream blush into your skin. You could use a beauty blender is a great option also. A beauty blender will help you mix your cream blush more appropriately and in a more uniform manner.

A cream blush can spread quickly and uniformly on your cheeks because of its consistency and texture. Blending a cream blush is more manageable because its consistency makes it easy.

A cream blush is perfect for a fall day out because it manages to set a glow on your face.

Powder blush

Powder blush is, first of all, dry. Powder blush is not a good idea for dry skin because it can accentuate the skin's dryness in terms of any flakes on someone's dry skin. A powder blush may work better for someone wearing full coverage makeup and also suit well for someone with oily skin.

How To Apply Cream Blush?

You're probably wondering how to apply cream blush. Now that you have one, you are probably guessing how you should use it, but it's better to follow a method. Fret not! I'm here to help you with that. Since we're on the topic, let's look at how the cream blushes application works best.

Apply It On Your Cheeks

Squeeze a drop or two on your fingers or your beauty blender if it is a tube. If it's in pressed form, swipe your fingers just a bit to get some color. Then tap your product onto the apple of your cheeks.

Blend It!

Blend the cream blush onto your cheeks. Make sure it's even and uniform. Blend it either with your fingers, the warmth of your fingers works the best for application because it helps melt the product onto your cheeks or apply it with a beauty blender if desired. Keep blending until it's melted onto your skin, it looks smooth and settled.

Uh, La La!

Voila! You're done! Tap on that cheek of yours and curve your lips into a smile. Your gorgeous self is dressed, ready to dazzle, and turn some heads around.

Which Product To Choose, Though?

Now that we know what cream blushes are, how they differ from powder blushes, and how to apply them, let's understand what cream blush you need to buy; this is the most crucial part.

It's vital you know which one suits you because the wrong choice can make you question your entire makeup look.
