[[ Soz webcam pics, but the lip colour comes out truer on them! ]]
Well, I was wrong. I left empty handed and feeling a bit awkward after picking apart all of the poor sales assistant's suggestions - she really did try her best to help, but none of the shades were quite right.
Illamasqua seemingly have no cool shades that would work well as a contour for me :( Yes, I'm warm toned, but warm tones give a bronzed look whereas cool tones give the effect of shadows...I was quite surprised since their shade range is so expansive!
So, I dug about in my make-up and figured I'd try and mix something up. I ended up mixing a cool toned Ben Nye blush and a warm Sleek blush and trying that out. Too warm, of course, but I guess I'm one step closer to modelesque cheekbones?! Right? Riiiiight?! *sigh*
