Hey everyone! We’re back to makeup again this week and I’m feeling like experimenting! I’ve challenged myself to do my makeup by applying products in ways they weren’t initially intended.
- Blusher as Eyeshadow
Soap & Glory’s Peach Party Blusher is a pretty-in-pink colour wheel (£11.00 in Boots), which works perfectly as an eyeshadow substitute. I simply dabbed on a little of the salmon pink shade using an Ecotools eyeshadow brush from their 6 Piece Brush Set (£15.99 in Boots) and I was good to go.
- Lipstick as Blusher
I dabbed a little of my Colour Sensational Lipstick by Maybelline (Fuchsia Flash, £6.99 in Superdrug) onto the apple of my cheeks to replace blusher and I was pleasantly surprised with the result! However, I would recommend keeping clear of sticky lipsticks when trying out this beauty hack.
- Eyeshadow as Eyeliner
I used a thin lip brush from my Ecotools set to brush ‘Creep’ from Urban Decay’s Naked 1 Palette (£39.50, Debenhams) onto my lids in lieu of eyeliner and it turned out pretty well! Still, nothing beats a good liquid eyeliner.
- Blusher as Lip-gloss
This is another one I wasn’t sure would work very well! I used Soap & Glory’s Love At First Blush Cheek Stick [£8.00 in Boots] instead of a lip-gloss. I prefer a fuller coverage, but the blusher gave my lips a delightful pink-tinted shimmer which would look gorgeous over lipstick.
- Highlighter as Primer
I usually use Soap & Glory’s Hocus Focus Highlighter [£11.00 from Boots] to contour, but this time I decided to get creative! I massaged 2 pumps of the highlighter onto my face, before adding foundation, bronzer and powder on top. I loved the effect, as the highlighter/primer softened the appearance of my pores and gave my skin a delightful glow.
As always, I’d love to know what you all think of this look. Have a great week!
