How to Wear Blush Eyeshadow
Happy Friday (and Saint Patrick’s Day) lovely readers and followers! I’m back from spring break, and this week has felt long and productive. Sometimes things can make us feel so busy that we take them for granted.
I like how God is reviving my passion for life again. Don’t get me wrong, I consider myself a pretty mellow and optimistic person. But I’ve also been battling stress and anxiety lately. Talk about a killjoy.
Did you know that your comments can literally make a difference in my day? I know that I may not write the most riveting or mind blowing posts in the world, but if something I write touches you in some way, let me know. That comment section at the end of each post is where I’ve had some really amazing conversations. I want you to be a part of them.
I love how God uses little things like a text message or the comment section of a blog post to bring me back to reality again–to bring me back to His purpose for my life. Has God ever reached out to you like that before?

Today’s fashion post is actually a beauty post! When I first saw blush eye shadow trending in a magazine, the only thing I could think of was that my already bloodshot eyes would look even more dried up and scary (darn allergies).
But the more I experiment with blush eye shadow, the more I see how it can actually be very flattering on any skin tone. This soft, romantic shade is appropriate for any occasion and is just right for spring.
For those of us who are used to neutrals or smokey eyes, taking a leap into pink hues can seem a little challenging. The key is mixing and blending. I find that a peach or burgundy shadow looks better on me than lavender or heavy pink colors.
If you’re on board to try this pretty trend, my best advice would be to find a pallet that has plenty of blendable bronze and gray shades (see bottom pallet). If you’re used to a darker or smokey eye, burgundy or plum shades are the way to go (see top left).
Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. (1 John 4:11 NIV)

Blue eyeshadow is a scary concept, but I <3 wearing it in what I hope are NOT scary ways!! 😀
Blending and mixing neutrals like grey or beige always helps with that! I’m sure you’re doing just fine 😉 Thanks for commenting!
Emily, you are right about the pink hues and on blending well. Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you too!
Thanks for commenting Christina! I hope you have a great weekend 💚
A worsening skin condition last year led me to almost swear off makeup completely (at least for now), but I LOVE makeup and for years my go-to has always been plums, purple-y pinks and blushes. What you’ve featured is such a pretty, feminine palette, and what’s best about it (for me) is that it can double as both fancy and everyday basic without any effort at all. It can be tough to justify a heavy, dark, smoky eye when you’re just going to the grocery store in jeans at 10 or 11 AM, but something light and feminine like this? You can wear it ANYWHERE and look lovely. That’s what most makeup should be, I think — something that enhances your natural beauty. So I really enjoyed your post today!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! 🙂
Thanks for commenting Wendy! I totally agree that makeup should be used to enhance our natural beauty (I even wrote a post on this). A versatile pallet that can be layered for a natural, yet colorful effect is great for everyday wear. I hope your skin heals and you can find makeup that works for you! I know there are a lot of natural products on the market, so maybe one of these days you’ll have to go exploring for some 😊
Thanks, Emily. I’m going to be a bridesmaid in June, so I’ve already started looking around! 🙂
