Using eyeshadow as a blush…


I made an experiment this morning as I was rushing out the house to go to work…I realized that my makeup case was still in my trunk and did not have some of the products I needed for may daily makeup. I usually don’t use that much makeup to go to work but I need my 7 basics (is that a lot?!?) :

  • Studio fix powder
  • Spiked eyebrows pencil
  • Select cover up concealer
  • Fatal Mascara (Lancome)
  • Black eyeliner
  • any lipgloss that I can find…
  • BLUSH!!!!

So I had everything but the blush…I found an old eyeshadow around from MAC called Cranberry that I mixed with passionate (it’s a dark bright pink almost like sushi flower) and used a little bit on the apple of my cheeks and guess what??? I am loving it more than my Raizin blush!!! Well I still need to see if it does not look to light on pictures…but so far I think it works pretty well…

So if you ever lose your blush or just don’t have one, try one of the bright red-pink eyeshadow you have…

    I love cranberry! It is so pretty!
    The last time i went to a Mac counter,i also wanted to buy passionate but it was out of stock.
    The make-up artist suggested posthate which looked very similar and told me that i could also it as a blush
