  49. OOo such a pretty color! i’d wear neutral eye makeup and a sheer gloss with this!

    nurtural eye with lollipop loving lip stick!

  52. I’m very fair, so because the blush would be bold on my cheeks, I would keep my eyes and lips simple, nude.

  53. LH

    I’m not sure def a nude lip maybe a neutral or subtle green eye I would have to see how the color transfers on me.

  54. stephanie

    Bold and Brazen e/s washed on the eye a little sketch in the crease and a sheer gloss on the lips.

    And pinky nude lips, MAC Crème cup.

    I’d use the light pink of the blush on the apples and fadeing it out with the darker on into the temples.

    RT’ed, nickname: Monticka

  73. I would pair this blush with a neutral eye and pink lips!

  74. Tobi

    I think this would go on well with a dramatic and flicked black eyeliner and a very very sheer lipgloss.
    (I like very much this contests!! =D)

  76. With such a pigmented blush, I would pair it with more neutral eyes (naked lunch on the lid and mystery on the upper lashline and lots of mascara) and lips (high tea for instance) to give the blush the importance it deserves

  77. victoria

    i would wear neutral or just mascara and a bright rose or fushia lips. no shimmer, lips and cheeks are the focus.

  78. I think I’d try to work a pinup look with this blush – bright red lips, winded eyeliner & a gorgeous subtle smokey eye.

  85. I would rock this with eyeshadow that matches my complexion, a sultry cat eye, raspberry colored lipstick topped with love alert dazzleglass.

  86. Adrine

    I’d wear it with neutral pink eyes so that the blush would be the pop of color on the cheecks and with maybe Angel on the lips.
