Very experimental. And I’ve decided that Love+ is WAY too pigmented to be used as blush.   ahahaha. Ouch.  I guess I had to learn somehow…. Maybe it would work on someone with considerably darker skin than me. THe color is pretty, but it would NOT sheer out at all!  I guess that’s a good thing for eyeshadow. Just not for blush.  Darn my multitasking mind!

    The blush may not be an everyday sort of look, but it would be great for a party/costumey event. Also digging the smudgy lower lashline with all the red shadow.

      My original plan had been to do the blush VERY dense around the temples, and overlay a gold fishnet pattern over top. I was so worried at how harsh it looked across my cheeks, though, that I chickened out.

      I like my concept, I just think I need a few more run-through’s to get it done right.

    I love it! Maybe if you blended a bit of love with a setting powder, it would sheer out better-I have luck using that trick with Urban Decay’s Gash eyecolor and Dior’s mineral powder!

      I think I’ll have to try that next. This was just WAY too much for me, since I’m so colorless naturally. I’m sure I’ll come back to the idea soon…. Must give it some thought….

      Thanks. It’s a bit rough—I just HAD to play with my new Burning Heart palette…. I think I could use more practice, it has been a while since I worked on matte shades that intense!
