Cream blushes are more pigmented and are great layered underneath a powder blush to add more intensity. As with the other types of makeup, choosing a powder or cream blush comes down to the finish you want and your skin type. If you are acne prone, layering on too many creamy products could overwhelm your skin. If you’re trying out the statement blush trend, a cream formula gives a nice glow. If you want to increase the intensity, layer a powder blush and blend.
