I’m about as much of a girly girl as you can get. Make-up, sparkly things, shoes, bags…. all those stereotypical girly things make it onto my love-list! But pink? Not normally my thing at all – but for some reason I’ve recently been leaning towards the shade more and more so decided to put together a little look with a perky pink theme… the ideal colour for a fresh Spring face!
The main three products that make up the fresh pink look are the three above – Laura Mercier, Clinique and Giorgio Armani. All easy to use products – so another big tick of approval for this look is that it’s speedy to do.
The Clinique Chubby Stick* for eyes is a shimmering fresh pink in ‘Pink and Plenty‘ has a nice hint of shimmering gold to it to keep it flattering rather than like you have been crying (a risk with pink shades!).
The blusher is a new number one love in my make-up life – Giorgio Armani Blushing Fabric* (in shade 3). These blushers – which are so amazing they deserve a full post all to themselves – are a silicone-smooth creamy texture that create a sheer flush of colour on the cheeks that looks and feels totally natural. A tiny amount (a pea sized) is more than enough for a healthy glow – so these tubes will last for ages. The silicone feeling to them also makes them easy to blend when applied – so if you like cream blushers but maybe find application a pain – these could be your answer! Seriously, so much love for these. Would definitely get the product of the season award from me (if I did something like that). Giorgio Armani blushing fabric is available from John Lewis.
Then the final touch is the slick of pinky-coral gloss from Laura Mercier* (available from Urban Retreat Beautique) – this is another reliable season-long shade. The colour is called ‘BonBon’ and it’s pinky but with just enough coral to keep it really flattering on multiple skin tones. This is also in a handy mini size – ideal for handbags (or if you’re like me and unlikely to ever actually finish a whole full sized gloss).
The rest of the face is simple – just my current favourite foundation, Bobbi Brown Skin*, Dior Concealer (which is fab by the way, a tiny bit offers tons of coverage and isn’t drying – but lasts) and Guerlain Mascara* – which I’m still loving since my review! Oh, and I’ve been using the bargain basement MUA Brow Palette (not pictured) from Superdrug, which was only around £3.50!
