I’ve been on a blush craze, buying many formulas and brands of blushes in the past month. From Colourpop blush duos, Nars liquid blushes, Stila convertible lip and blush palettes. Well the good thing is I’ll test it out on myself and if it works well, 80% of what I buy goes into my professional makeup kit. No animal testing here, just a real-life-human-test-subject.
If you do not know I work in the bridal/ beauty makeup artistry sector. Many clients and because it’s quickly approaching from spring to summer, people are requesting a natural glow. After doing a monochromatic peach eye, lip, and cheeks (E.L.C.) look for one of my brides, per her request, I realized I did not have enough pastel nectar cheek colors. Instead, I used what I had, a pretty Colourpop eyeshadow on her cheeks (Colourpop Pressed Shadow “Wait For It”, their website picture does not represent how bright and coral-ly it actually is IRL, click for my swatch), it really complimented her NC15 skin. After that, I went on a binge buy of blushes and came across Colourpop’s blush duo in “Done Deal” & “The Knockout”. The knockout was a bit deeper than I like on my skin and not bright enough, as you can see in the swatches above. So the search continues (my nars order is on it’s way, and stila I need to test), stay in touch for more blush swatches or follow me on instagram: imeltformakeup, I update much more often there than here.
