How-to; Make magenta blush look girly


It's been a while since I've done a crease look. On my skin, mattes that I have in my collection are never pigmented enough to achieve a vibrant look. So I used a blusher in the crease.

But for those of you who came here thinking this is a blush post, here are two tips on how to make pigmented blush more wearable on pale skins.

  1.  Use a stippling brush - the provide a sheer blush application
  2. Never use a brush that has dark bristles. Why? If you use a white bristle brush it is easier to see how much product there is on the brush and if you are pale you can better see how the color would translate on your skin.With black bristles it is very easy to overdo it.

Anyways, on to the eyes
I, of course, got mascara smears on the lid. Always happnes when I do a pretty look
that i want to show you guys and I never realized UNTILL I edit the picture.
I didn't want to delete them, so bare with me.

Base: Essence Ballerina Backstage LE  (the white one, Dance the Swan Lake) used on the waterline as well.
Inner corner and highlight: IsaDora shimmery white from the Pearls Quad.
Lid: Alverde LE RoseGarden pinkish matte white
Crease and lowerlashine: Prestige blush blended out with the hot pink for Monaco Sleek i-divine palette
Liner: Essence Black Mania Liquid liner set with a dark purple form a IsaDora duo

Here are a few more pictures with my eyes opened and with lips that I wore. For lips I used a peachy frosty lipstick. To make them look smaller and less plump (I know, I know, everybody wants to do the opposite)
I used a very dark red in the center of the lips and then blended it out into the peach with a sheer red.
And one more final batch of the pictures =)

All these pictures are taken with my phone. Would you say the quality is satisfactory?
I'm not sure.  In the right light condition, it gives me true-to-color results. But it doesn't focus on a big enough area.
My camera might have been better choice. :S
