Perfect Blush Combination
Firstly, please ignore my stupid pose in the first picture... the photo was taken after pre-drinks haha.
Anyway. Today I would like to share with you all a blush combination that I have been loving to wear recently on nights out. As some of you may know, I have been lusting over the NARS Cream Blush in 'Cactus Flower'. Unfortunately, it's not in my price range at the moment, so I decided to try and re-create the look with blushes I already own!
First I apply NYX Cream Blush in 'Glow', a beautiful medium pink which as the name suggests, gives a lovely glow to the cheeks and acts as a perfect base. To set the blush and achieve that signature golden shimmer of 'Cactus Flower', I apply a layer of my Max Factor Blush in 'Classic Rose'. This blush is a rosy, peachy colour with golden shimmer.
I absolutely love the Max Factor blush! On a night out I love to apply a heavy layer, I find it photographs amazingly and gives a gorgeous sparkle to the cheeks when it catches the light on the dancefloor. I don't bother wearing a highlighter as the blush gives the perfect sheen to the face.
What are your favourite blush combinations at the moment?
