11 Blushes That Look Even Cooler on Your Eyes

Generally speaking, I'm not much of a rule follower when it comes to beauty products. If I'm inspired to do so, I'll chuck the instructions and freestyle. I'll use my face masks as moisturizers, hair conditioner as shaving cream, lip liner as eyeliner. And of course, my habit of using lipstick as "lidstick" is well documented here on Byrdie. What can I say? I like to make my beauty routine my own.

My newest obsession is using blush as eye shadow (with a little pop of champagne highlighter in the corners of the eyes to brighten it up). One-dimensional pink eye makeup is so alluring to me—feminine, modern. When paired with a pink cheek and a pink lip, it's the monochromatic look of my dreams. And I figure if I already own a bunch of beautiful pink, coral, and red blushes, then why bother spending time and money trying to find eye shadow that does the same thing? Both powder and cream blushes work just as well as powder and cream shadows—at least the ones on this list anyway.
