I was never a creme blush girl as my face sometimes likes to eat makeup, and it finds creme blush particularly tasty. I have always loved the effect that it gives though. Well, remember when I said that Cristabel was the BBBE girls fairy godmother at the Illamasqua Launch? I received this blush in my goody bag. Being bright orange, this is not a colour I would ever have chosen for myself, but it looks absolutely fantastic on! Plus, the Illamasqua creme blushes are quite long lasting. The cult makeup brand strikes again.
Another nifty little trick? If I want the hit of coral but with a little bit more pink, I just dab a little of my MAC Pinch o' Peach powder blush over the top. This also acts as a fantastic creme blush "setter" ie. it basically acts as a transulcent powder to set the creme blush for long lasting wear, as advocated for in Zoe Foster's fantastic book Amazing Face.
