yup! i used wedge e/s once as a sub for emote blush 🙂 it doesnt show up well on my eyelids so i prolly will use it more as a contour powder lol

I use neutral pink as a blush, it is great! Today I also tried girl friendly pp as a cream blush underneath it – perfect!!!

i use sushi flower on the apples of my cheeks, then i use my bella il fiore roller ball eyeshadow in jailhouse rock [a rosy apricot] to highlight. it’s especially great during the summer because my skin gets really dark (i have french, hawaiian, and native american blood in me!) so it goes really well with my skin tone!

Yup, i know i have done with both mac/upper end eyeshadows and drugstore branded ones. The results are always fab. Great when you want a very different approach to both texture and colour (i believe i have even used mac’s yogurt as a highlighter).
Saying that, i’ve been known to use blush as eyeshadow, so that can work both ways :).

I just used a little bit of highlighter from a smashbox brick to highlight the bone between my eye and cheek today!

Hey Cristine,

Yup often i use blush as eyeshadow it always turn beautiful,even though i have almost every colour in blushes but im a matching freak like ya!!!


While we are on the subject of shadows (when aren’t we though, really!), Christine, have you got Romp yet? You were saying months ago you didn’t know why you didn’t have it. Just wondering since it’s one of my favorites.

Not usually – since I hardly use the blush products I already have! But a few years ago, I used a very light (and I do mean VERY light) dusting of Gold Mode on the cheek bone/temple area, on top of a beige-golden blush and it looked good. Never tried it much after that – I prefer a subtle, matte look and this certainly wasn’t one!

I always do. Since eyeshadow and blushs are just about the same, I dont see any reason to buy both. There has been about 2 times that Ive bought actual blush and thats because it was on sale.

It’s funny you asked this today, because I actually used Blush as EyeShadow!! LOL. I used Fashion Frenzy as my accent color with a lighter pink shadow, and it looks great! LOL. So I guess it works both ways!

No but I use blush as a crease color all the time. Especially Nars Zen blush and Benefit Dallas blush. Gives a polished, no makeup look. A little MAC Beig-ing all over and a swipe of blush in the crease.

Billy B. did my make-up using Scott Barnes Cashmere e/s on my eyes and on my cheeks as a contour. It looked amazing.
