An Experiment!

Hello Everyone :)

If you're a regular stalker/reader of my blog you should know by now my love for Illamasquas cream blushes. I was reading Emma's blog yesterday where she too was expressing some love - at the end of the post she talked about how she often used her cream blush on her lips - why oh why did I not think of that??

I got thinking and thought why stop there? I was thinking of buying a couple of MAC cream colour bases (particularly a pink) and so had a play about to see if I could use a cream blush instead....

Ha not the most flattering of photos and I cut the top of my head off but it shows the blush on my eyes well!

On my eyes I used Illamasqua Cream Blush in Promise as a base, Barry M Dazzle Dust Neon Pink, Urban Decay Ecstasy, MAC Shimmer Time pigment, MAC Blanc Type eye shadow, MAC Fluidline in BlackTrack.

I also used the blush lightly on my cheeks and on my lips! I still can't believe that I haven't ever thought of doing this - how silly! I think it looks quite pretty - have you got anymore multipurpose products?

Lots of Love

P.S. Have a mid-sneeze pictureAlign Centre
