Hi! Halloween is over, and you have some fake blood left? Don’t throw it away, you might use it.. as a blush!
At Intercharm Milan i bought this fake blood from Stargazer, a U.K. brand which has some nice, original products. It’s not really blood red, but lighter, and it gives you a wonderful natural-looking glow. Just put a tiny drop on the apples of your cheeks and blend with fingers as desired. It can be layered if you want to go for the Heidi effect. As with any cream or liquid blush, remember to set it with a bit of powder (regular powder, translucent powder or a powder blush will all do). It lasts all day, doesn’t transfer and comes off with warm water or makeup remover. Of course it’s safe for the skin, and not tested on animals. Please excuse the lack of pictures but it’s pouring and I can’t get swatches that do it justice.
You can buy it on their website for £ 3, or in local retailers (they don’t have a list of retailers but you can write to them).
Do you like the idea? I actually like it more as a blush than as fake blood!
