How Redheads Can Apply Cream Blush + Best Product Recommendations

Get Glowing, Rosy Cheeks

Posted on

We love cream products, especially for spring and summer. Cream blush is one of our favorites because it can help you achieve that nice warm, rosy look in a very natural and dewy way. Here are a few tips for applying cream blush as well as some of our favorite cream blushes for redheads:

Use your (clean) fingers

The warmth from your fingers makes it easier to blend your cream products out. You don’t want any harsh lines from your blush, so using your fingers is a great way to get a soft look that’s perfectly blended.

Blend upwards

Blush contour is very popular right now, and even if you’re not ready to go all-in, you can help sculpt your face with your blush. When you apply the blush, try to blend upwards to create the illusion of a more lifted face. 

Try it as a lip colors

Many cream blush products can be used as lip tints, and some are even marketed that way. This creates a gorgeous monochromatic look that’s very appealing to the eye. You can also use your lipstick as a cream blush if you’re in a pinch!
