Blush overload

 Hullo. Yesterday my friends took me out for some belated Birthday drinks. I decided to do a sort of monochrome coral look based off a picture in the Nars Makeup Your Mind book. This consisted of a lot of blush heading up to my temples and the same colour on my eyes.

The photos aren't great because my camera is broken and so I used my phone. It takes great photos in natural light but at night they look a bit weird. Still you get the basic idea of the makeup.

Face: Illamasqua Skin Base in 02, some Avon powder, Hi Fi Cosmetics Raid the Kind Eyeshadow as blush
Eyes:  Hi Fi Cosmetics Raid the Kind Eyeshadow, black mascara
Lips: Sleek Papaya Punch lipstick, clear lipgloss (blotted down)


  1. I'm also a fan of using the blush all the way up, it's very artistic ;)


    1. I've just started doing it a lot recently. I find it helps contour my face slightly :)

    1. Thank you! Obviously it wasn't as well done as the version I copied but I think I did an ok job :)

  3. Oooh, I really like this. Never would have thought using the same colour on your eyes and cheeks would look so good. :)

    1. Thank you! I guess it would depend on the colour, I should experiment. Green everything! :D

  4. Love this! Very 80' s chic with the blush!

  5. For some reason it reminds me of Johnny Depp as the mad hatter in Alice in Wonderland !
    I love it :D
