10 Cream Blushes To Use For A Perfect Summer Flush

As someone who once struggled with severe rosacea, the initial thought of an extremely rosy cheek stirred hesitation within me. The heat that rose to my face amidst embarrassment at one time caused me great anxiety and self-consciousness. Over time though, I have come to embrace the natural flush that comes to my cheeks when I am filled with laughter, embarrassment, or a bit too much time in the sun. My favorite makeup product now? A powder pink blush from Dior in shade Rose Caprice

As we step into summer steeped in sunshine and SPF, we all face the collective desire for a perfectly sun-kissed glow. Whether you are like me, and have a strong fear-turned-affinity for a rosy cheek, or you are relatively new to the blush game, the cream products below are perfect for achieving a romantic, lit-from-within look from summertime and beyond.

If you are looking to start on the safe side of your blush journey, Glossier Cloud Paint is a great choice for you, but if a more daring look appeals to your eye, we recommend a touch of Soft Pinch Liquid Blush from Rare Beauty for a full-on flush.
