Yet Another Blush Combo for the Summer!

If you've read my review on the Giorgio Armani Blushing Fabric in #4 here, you'd know that although I really liked the formula and the colour of it, the fact that it applied sheerly (but buildable) did not impress me much.. However, now I have found a way to make that sheerness work for me beautifully..

Here's how...

First: I apply the GA #4 using my MAC 187 Brush
Second: Dust Illamasqua Powder Blush in Lover on top



The GA #4 turns Lover in to a deepened bronzy peach rather than the bright peach it is.. And it looks so flattering for the summer time!

Now most of you know how much I adore my Illamasqua Lover blush.. I found that it works sooo great with so many blushes (see how I used it in another combination here) and the fact that it's super smooth and blends effortlessly makes it one of my all-time favourite blushes!



Have you tried been combining your blushes to get that right shade?

good idea! I frequently use powder blush over cream blush for staying power. You should try Armani Blushing fabric No 1 - it's a bright, hot pink!

Peach is always hard for me to wear, but it looks pretty in the swatch. Hey come join my Giveaway for a Hold Me bag, you can see it in action with the video I posted, good luck! XOXO

What a beautiful colour! Very good idea to layer a sheer blush with a pigmented one, the outcome is gorgeous! And I agree Lover is <3

great idea! I often use topshop cream blushers as a base and layer them with a powder one.

I really need Lover!!

I love what you did with the GA blush! That color seems like it would be able to transform a lot of powders into something different. I like layering Tickle Me Pink CCB from MAC with NARS Taj Mahal :)

@Kalmo - Thanks hun =)


@Tracy@Beauty Reflections - You doooo!


@Danielle - Thanks hun. Yah you're right.. Wow Tickle Me Pink + Taj Mahal that sounds so lovely!

I use cream blusher and powder blusher to help my blushes stay longer. I use Illamasquas cream blushers =)

I love the looks of 'Lover'! The two combined also looks gorgeous~

What a pretty cheek combo! I find that Illamsqua's products are really easy to mix with other things to create new shades. ^_^

@PopBlush - Yah layering cream and powder is the best way to ensure longevity of your blush.. Thanks sweetie..


@Amyboo - Yah you're right.. Illamasqua blushes are amazing for mixing ;)

So pretty! I never think to layer, I'll keep that in mind tomorrow morning while I do my makeup =)
