Use the right blush: Cream vs. powder

Your blush could be the problem with your skin or the reason you aren’t getting the exact look you want for everyday. Read about the differences between cream and powder blush to find the right kind for you!

Cream flushed cheeks

Cream blush is a great way to get healthy looking skin with a dewy finish. Great for dry or normal skin, simply apply cream blush with the tip of your fingers on the apples of your cheek. Take time to apply as rubbing your cheek may make you look more flush and you will need to apply more after to achieve the best blush application.


The most common and easiest to use blush is powder. Powder blush is great for oily skin and in humid climates. The powder formula won't melt or slip during hot weather so keep that in mind when deciding which blush is for you!
