5 Cream Makeup Products for Your Fall Beauty Wardrobe

Add these to your cart for a radiant finish, stat.
September 05, 2022

Dry skin season is approaching and that means that many of us will need to shift our current beauty routines. Forceful winds, artificial heat and
cold air can cause major changes in our complexion’s ability to stay hydrated, and it’s not just our skin care routines that have to accommodate these changes. The makeup that you wore on humid, sticky summer days will not suffice, as powder and matte formulas can highlight dry patches and dehydrated skin. 

It’s time to switch to liquids and creams — and the latter category is currently having a moment. Luckily, we’ve got some of the best cream makeup recommendations, including cream foundation and cream blush, to get you through fall and winter. Keep reading so you can stock up on these must-haves before the craze of holiday shopping kicks into full gear.

What Is Cream Makeup?

Cream makeup is exactly what it sounds like — makeup formulations with a creamy consistency, versus liquid or powder. They tend to be hydrating as they contain serums and ingredients such as glycerin in their formulas. Cream makeup is easy to use as it glides onto the skin smoothly and evenly. 

Though any skin type can use cream makeup, people with dry skin tend to benefit greatly from opting for cream formulas because of the aforementioned hydrating benefits. Dry patches on the face get covered instead of being accentuated.

How Do You Apply Cream Makeup?

As we said, cream makeup applies smoothly due to its silky consistency. In order to get an even application you may want to apply cream makeup with a sponge or even your fingers instead of a makeup brush. 

Your fingers will help to warm up the product and let you get a precise application while a makeup sponge will help you bounce and buff the product into the skin for a flawless, airbrush-like finish.

Which Cream Makeup Is the Best?

Now that you know what you need to know about cream makeup, you’re probably ready to fill up your cart with some top notch products. To get you started, we’re naming five of our favorite makeup products with a cream base for a luminous — not shiny — and soft finish. 

L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Makeup 4-in-1 Tinted Face Balm Foundation

This lightweight cream foundation is formulated with a firming serum to firm the skin and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time. Instantly it offers light to medium coverage to conceal blemishes and even out your skin tone. It melts into the skin upon contact and feels soft against the face and neck for all-day comfortable wear.

L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Makeup Radiant Satin Blush with Camellia Oil

Cheeks are out year-round so it makes sense to dress them up. This blush that goes on creamy and dries down to a powder is made with mature skin in mind but creates the perfect flush for anyone. Made with hydrating camellia oil, it leaves your skin with a satin pop of color that won’t dry out your cheeks or look cakey.

L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Frame and Set

The eyebrows of your dreams may be one creamy brow pomade away. Bless your vanity with this set that lets you shape and fill in your arches like a pro. The creamy formula glides on smoothly and stays put for up to 24 hours with a natural, hair-like finish.

L’Oréal Paris Les Nus by Colour Riche Intense Nude Lipstick

We couldn’t muse about cream makeup without talking about the product category where you’re likely to find the most cream makeup — lipstick. We love this cream lipstick in particular for its hydrating properties that leave lips feeling soft. Of course the color payoff is the best part, and the rich, long-wear color won’t feather or smudge so touch ups are minimal.

L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Makeup Creamy Powder Foundation with Minerals

You may be wondering how a foundation can be creamy and powder — but this must-have has hacked science (we’re thinking it’s chemistry) and figured out a way to be both. Just like its blush counterpart, this foundation goes on with a smooth, creamy texture and dries down to a powder-like finish. It’s the perfect find for those who desire a matte look but want the ease of applying a cream. It instantly blurs lines, pores, and dark spots without giving a caked-on appearance.
