When I was writing this post, I was getting a little bored. In fact, I was plain bored that day. So, I decided to do something a little more fun!
You have a wedding dinner to attend right after work. All you have time to do is to get a quick shower and probably touch up your face. Then you realize the eye shadows were a mess, the blush has faded and your face is in serious need of fresh foundation. I hate having to rush after a tiring day at work. However, I had no choice but to do the best I could.
My day usually starts at 7am. I have a warm shower, get the kids ready, drop them off at school and I’d be at work just on time. When the kids aren’t behaving, I might have to apply my makeup at work (I have a set of makeup I keep at my office), but I usually like to apply my base at home. I usually slap on either a foundation or a BB cream, then dust it with powder.
I thought this was easy enough to do. That’s what I thought anyway…when I saw MM from Makeup Morsels do hers. She did a gold / khaki green ombré liner but I wanted to do something even more subtle. Mine is a combination of 2 different greens and a grey. I could easily change it by patting different eye shadows on top, but I thought this was subtle and complemented my Butter London Dosh nails.
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.
