I know, I know. I haven’t done a post from this series in quite awhile, uh? I’m so sorry, chicas. I’ve been behind on keeping you lovely up on blushes from my brown skin beauties. I am still enamored with blush and my collection has grown from 3-5 blushes to almost 20! I’m tellin’ you….when I like somethin’ I really like it! And while I haven’t purchased a blush in awhile, I still enjoy revisiting everything from my NYC blush in Desert Rose to my Stila Convertible color in Rose and Grandma’s trusty Fashion Fair Warm Sand blush.
But what happens when a lady loves what she loves but still wants to try something different?
Who remembers MAC’s Mi’Lady Mineralized shadow? This baby came out last fall and I honestly haven’t touched it in quite awhile. While I think it is divine on the lids this beautiful combo of mineralized goodness doesn’t quite fit in with my daily work-appropriate looks. But I still wanted to see what I could do with ole’ girl.
I mean, look how pigmented she is…
A little too sparkly for my liking but perhaps with a lighter hand and a cleaner brush I would have ended up with a beautifully flattering purple cheek that doesn’t LOOK crazy.
I was a little heavy on the cheeks but that didn’t stop me…I pulled out my purples quad and…
Still a little too MUCH so I definitely want to play around with purples on the cheek but with a lighter hand. And yall know me, I ALWAYS get carried away….Mi’Lady on the lips, B? Really?
So what say you, people? Would you rock purple cheeks? Or on the lips? Hmm…maybe I will refine this look a little more and present it in this week’s upcoming FOTD Friday?
