How to Choose a Cream Blush for Oily Skin - Buying Guide

When choosing the cream blush for your oily skin, there are a few things you have to keep in mind. The shade, type, finish, and ingredients can impact how the blush sits on your face, so keep reading to learn some helpful tips!

Pick a Shade That Will Complement Your Skin Tone

Pick a Shade That Will Complement Your Skin Tone

Check the undertone of your skin. Generally, warm undertones go well with warm colors like peach and gold. Cool undertones work better with cold colors like pink and purple. But there's a little more to it: you should also look at your skin tone.


If you have light skin, shades like baby pink, peach, and plum will give you a bright and healthy glow. Cooler shades of pink will also bring more depth to your face. If you have a medium skin tone, shades like apricot, berry, and deep rose will enhance your skin tone. Warm peaches and oranges will offset yellow undertones and redness.

Pick a Shade That Will Complement Your Skin Tone

Olive skin tones will look great with shades of rose because they will help balance out the skin tone. Bronze and copper will bring warmth and brightness to your face, but be wary of warm colors as they can make your skin look yellowish.


Shades of terracotta and deep red-orange will look amazing on darker skin tones. These shades will bring natural depth and warmth to your face. Avoid lighter blushes that will be too ashy or dark ones that will appear bruised.

Choose a Type of Blush Based on Application and Portability

Choose a Type of Blush Based on Application and Portability

There are many types of cream blush. They can come packaged in pots, squeeze tubes, sticks, or palettes. Choose your cream blush based on its application and portability.


Pots and compacts are usually small enough to be brought with you wherever you go. Some come with a mirror and brush to help with the application, while others can be applied with a finger. Think about what's going to be the most convenient for you and buy a compact blush based on how quick and easy you need it to be.

Choose a Type of Blush Based on Application and Portability

Stick blushes are also great because they are easy to apply and keep in your purse in case you want to re-apply throughout the day. Make sure to keep your stick blush in a cool place so it won’t melt and lose its shape. For this reason, stick blushes might not be suitable for warm or tropical climates, especially if you plan to take yours on the go.


You can also opt for a cream blush in a tube. You simply squeeze some out and apply and blend it using a finger. These are usually highly pigmented, and often a little goes a long way. You can use a stippling brush to make sure your blush is well blended.

Consider a Blush With a Cream to Powder Finish

Consider a Blush With a Cream to Powder Finish

If you have oily skin, using a cream blush may seem counter-intuitive at first glance. Some fear a cream blush will make their face even oilier. If this is you, fret not! You can opt for a cream blush with a powder finish. These cream blushes go on as cream but dry to a powder finish, and will help control oiliness.


But beware of cream blushes with shimmery or metallic finishes. These can make your face look shiny. A better option would be to go for a blush with a matte finish, which will make your skin look airbrushed and won't reflect light.

Find Ingredients That Can Address Oily Skin Concerns

Find Ingredients That Can Address Oily Skin Concerns

Aside from the cream blush's finish, there are specific ingredients that can combat oily skin. For example, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, glycerine, and aloe vera can hydrate and moisturize your skin without clogging your pores.


If you tend to break out a lot, it might be helpful to look out for anti-inflammatory ingredients like green tea extract and grapeseed oil. These ingredients reduce inflammation, redness, and can help clear clogged pores.


Some oils are great for oily skin, like jojoba, tea tree, and marula oils. They are light on the skin and won’t make it greasy. They help regulate sebum production and will keep your skin hydrated and nourished.

Avoid Greasy and Possibly Irritating Ingredients

Avoid Greasy and Possibly Irritating Ingredients

If you have oily skin, you want to steer clear of cream blushes with heavy and greasy ingredients that can weigh on your face. You also want to avoid ingredients like plant butter, oil-based products like almond, coconut, oil, and more. These ingredients can clog your pores, trigger breakouts, weigh your skin down and make it oilier.


Other ingredients to avoid are alcohols, fragrances, and sulfates. Make sure to double-check the ingredients list for these potentially harmful ingredients. Alcohols and fragrances can irritate and dry your skin out, leading to more oil production and breakouts.


Sulfates can cause irritation and dryness, especially for sensitive skin. If you have a combination of oily and sensitive skin, it's always best to do a patch test to see if the product is the right fit for you.

Where Should I Apply Blush?

You can go with the traditional blush placement on the apples of your cheeks, or you can try changing your entire impression by trying it out somewhere else. Watch the video above to see what a different placement makes.

Summary

Putting on blush just has a way of brightening up the face, especially if you like to put on full coverage base. It gives you a fresh and youthful glow. Picking the right cream blush for your oily skin is important. Make sure to pay attention to its shade, type, finish, and ingredients. Once you’ve got this all down, glow, baby, glow!

    It’s a buzzword in Japan: translucence. It’s similar to Korea’s glass skin–skin so pure that it’s nearly transparent, resembling layers of frosted glass. In the Western world, think "glow" or "dewy finish." In order to respond to that aesthetic, cosmetic companies–both drugstore and high-end–here have been coming out with scores of whitening serums, essences, and ampoules.As always, it’s difficult to tell what kind of skincare is effective and what isn’t. That’s why, this time around, we ordered the 24 most popular whitening serums from Japan’s e-commerce giants (such as Amazon, Rakuten, and @cosme) and tested them all. We also invited a skincare specialist and had her compare the following:1. Hydration2.
