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.
To tell you the truth, I didn’t wear much makeup the last 2 weeks. I told you I strained my back, and I stayed at home most of the time… so I didn’t manage to wear much makeup. However, when I did, these were the few things I chose from my stash. I wanted to look a little more “alive”, so I picked a brighter lipstick. It’s also been quite hot, so I just used a light dusting of powder, which disappeared shortly after due to perspiration.
Bye bye Sunday Sharing series, Hello Sunday Stash Shopping! Now that I’m on a makeup ban, I am now shopping in my own stash. It’s a good way to re-discover old loves, going ooh and aah over things I have forgotten, and maybe go ‘eh??’ on why I ever bought that shitty eye shadow in that first place. Good reason to find a better home for it then. LOL!
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.
