How much blush is too much blush? The limit does not exist.

Especially in summer, when the sun hits the highest point of your face and this pigmented potent product does its job. The quickest way to get ready if you need to be out of the door in minutes is depending on this holy grail of your vanity.

But the type of blush you pick as your fighter also determines your dab and dash situation. While powder blushes are good for that solid matte finish, you need to step away from them during the winter. Not only is it harder to blend, but it also doesn’t give you a dewy finish like a cream/liquid blush otherwise would.

If this wasn’t convincing enough, Emirates Woman takes a beauty deep dive into why cream blushes reign supreme during summer (and why you must own one).

Natural and Dewy Finish

Cream blushes provide a more natural and dewy finish compared to powder blushes. During the summer months, when the weather is hot and humid, heavy makeup can feel uncomfortable and look less appealing. Cream blushes blend seamlessly into the skin, giving a fresh and radiant glow that mimics the appearance of naturally flushed cheeks.


It typically contain moisturizing ingredients that can help keep the skin hydrated. In the summer, excessive sun exposure and heat can dehydrate the skin, leading to dryness and flakiness. Cream blushes can help counteract this effect, providing a touch of moisture to the cheeks and preventing them from looking dull.


In hot weather, makeup tends to melt and fade faster. Cream blushes have better staying power than powder blushes because they adhere to the skin more effectively. They are less likely to be affected by sweat and oil, helping the color to last longer throughout the day.

Easy Application

Cream blushes are easy to apply and blend using either your fingers or a makeup sponge. They can be quickly dabbed onto the cheeks and blended out, making them convenient for on-the-go touch-ups during summer activities.
