How To Apply Cream and Gel Blushes Like A Pro


The last few posts I mentioned and share some of the cream blushes I picked up from different stores. So, today I wanted to do something different to share with you all. Therefore, here are the cream blushes that I’ve tried and love.

cream blushes

First thing first. You need to start with freshly moisturized skin or a liquid base.


Taking minimal amount, apply the product onto cheeks.


Next, using a brush or sponge, buff upwards and out. You can also use your fingers but remember to blend in a patting motion to avoid rubbing off the product. Blend and blend until you do not see any harsh edges. If you require more coverage, go back and add more.


Here are the tips I learned and gladly share in my post – do you know that :-

* Cream and gel blushes work best on those with normal to dry skin. Those with oily skin are better off with powder formulas.

* For a flushed-within look, apply a heavier layer over bare skin then add foundation on top.

* Applied too much? Do not use powder on top (you will risk looking cakey). Instead, tone down the color by dabbing a clean sponge over the area.

You just have to remember these 3 simple tips and you’re set for wearing cream blushes like a Pro. You got to try it!

Which is your favorite cream or gel blush and the brand? Don’t forget to leave your comment down below.

Thanks for taking the time to read.

  3. This was a helpful post. I’ve always wondered what to do if I applied too much (of cream blushes) which was a huge reason why I kept away from them. Now I shall give them a try. Thank you.

  4. I prefer cream blush to powder blush. My all time favorite is Youngblood’s creams especially in Taffeta.

  6. Great tips! I have oily skin so cream blushes are not my thing but I sometimes use them on my clients if they have dry skin. I feel like they have more natrual finish then powders often do. Thanks for sharing 🙂
