Beauty isn't about "Can I?", it's about what you like and what makes you look great. I layer and blend products all of time, it makes them more versatile and you can achieve a more tailored look than just using things straight from the package.
I agree. There are no rules when it comes to makeup. Experiment and try different things, and whatever works best for you use that method.
I layer blush quite often, too. I usually start with a cream or a gel, then set it with a transparent powder, then layer a very light dusting of powder blush on top of that.
I´ll go ahead in my crazy blush addiction. You know I live in south america, and here not many women use blush...Here´s more like a tan addiction (even now in winter) people use allover bronzing powder or worse they go to tanning beds!!
The ideal down here is let´s say a "Baywatch" makeup: tanned face+lashes+lipliner+gloss. I dont like this look at alllllll. It is so dated!
I adore light make up and lots of blush on women.
I loooove blush on Sarah Jessica Parker in SATC, Liv Tyler, Stella Mc Cartney, Gisele, Kirsten Dunst, and many others.
If you feel like...post some pics of great blush...
I don´t know how to do post pics...
It sounds like a great idea. I often do it when I want color and then shine. I'll put the "base color" blush and then the powder for coverage and shine control in the t-zone. Then comes the shimmiery stuff.
I layer blushes all the time. I use Tarte cheek stains, powder and then powder blush frequently-it gives the look more depth. I also use a powder bronzer with a baby pink blush on apples of cheeks-this is a pretty look.
What brand/color/type of blush do you use? Do you use more than one at a time? Do you always wear the same blush or do you alternate between different ones? Which brands do you swear by? Is there a very obvious difference between high-end blushes and cheap drugstore ones, or is it ok to save some money if you can find the right shade?
I couldn't find any threads on blush at all. :P It just seemed wrong not to have one. Besides, I'm curious...
i really like Armani powder & cream blushes. spendy, but really good. Sue Devitt makes some nice ones also--well-pigmented & very blendable. for drugstore stuff, i like Milani. cheap & still durable in the Honolulu heat.
imo, if you find a blush that works for you, stick w/it, regardless of price. what works for one, might not work on others.
i alternate depending on what i'm wearing and/or my mood...
i use nars orgasm, this pink bourgois shade, and chanel in incognito...
i think i use the chanel one the most... it looks very natural and is a very easy-to-wear color...
creams just don't work on me at all. i probably just don't know how to apply it, but i just don't like spending a lot of time on makeup.
i've never tried the drugstore brands... i've heard good things about l'oreal, but i find that with most drugstore brands, they're not very well pigmened, but are still good if you want to experiment... i say splurge if it's going to be an everyday thing
