I don't yet have a red MAC eyeshadow, and even if I did, we don't sell any at the counter and so I wouldn't be able to wear it to work. How did I do this then? (Most of you will have noticed, the answer is in the title...) I love red eyeshadow (Sugarpill Love+, Fyrinnae Kamikaze etc) so I decided to use red powder blusher instead! One of the girls on the counter had done this a few weeks ago and I have been meaning to try it ever since... this is that.

And what does it look like after a day at work...? (This is a little experiment with myself, to see if I look as insane as I feel... j/k) Does it last?
