For our second edition of Blush Fiends, we decided to feature a blush for Spring. I love the flowers that bloom during Springtime. The greens, the colours, the pastels. However, I hated the season. It gave me coughing fits, it gave me hay fevers, my nose was constantly red and swollen, my eyes were constantly watery. I was at a lecture, and I was coughing non stop, I couldn’t breathe. Every one was looking at me like I was a freak.
This is just a very short post, to show you how I normally apply not just any cream blush, but a BRIGHT and BOLD cream blush. Many people love using their fingers, but for me, I find that I prefer using a combination of fingers AND brush. The cream blush I am showing you today is one of the brightest I own, which is MAC Florida. This shade can be intimidating, because if you use a heavy hand, you’d end up having 2 very red cheeks that are meant to stay on a baboon’s behind. However, when done right, you will have the loveliest flush ever.
I don’t do this much, but I thought I’d put a very simple collage for you, all from Dior Summer Bird Of Paradise offering. I thought I needed a lot of practice, so I’ll start here. I don’t want to talk too much about them yet, but I am VERY excited to see the blush/bronzer duo which is the star product and that Jelly Lip Pen. I wonder if it’s sheer or pigmented, and if the star product is as good as is looks.
When I first started out with makeup, my policy was, the sheerer the better. It’s the safe way to go. For eyes, NEUTRALS! For lips, something that match my lip colour, please. For cheeks, sheer pink and sheer corals so that I won’t look like a baboon’s buttocks, thank you very much. I still love my neutrals, but I now love bright pigmented blush. Deep dark burgundy blushes, deep red wine blushes, bright fuchsia blushes that scare people away. Those, I love.
Lemmings are harmless. Unless it turns into an ugly obsession. I have a few press images for you, so that perhaps, you’d share my drool and I’d feel less lonely. Blanc de Pearl skincare and makeup should be out this month, so when you’re reading this, it might be available already. However, I’m pretty sure it is Asia exclusive, so if you’re drooling on the other side of earth, I feel you buddy. Here are some visuals, and a few products I’m particularly interested in.
