All About Pink


Pink is something I usually avoid when it comes to make up. I'm a big fan of coral hued variations of the shade, maybe even a pale pastel, but when it comes to full blown pink I tend to shy away. Recently though I've been reaching for this stand out colour over and over again.

It all started with a purchase of Sleek's Candy Collection Sweet Cheeks Blush By Three, an ingenious little palette that contains a cream blush and two powder shades all in the same colour family, this one being a delectable candy pink. As with all Sleek blushes the pigmentation is brilliant requiring only a light sweep across the apples of the cheeks to create bold colour. For times when I've wanted something a little more subtle I've been reaching for the Dainty Doll blush in My Girl. Designed for pales skins, this one can be layered and blended without fear of the dreaded 'over-blush' and gives a natural soft flush.

I've even been teaming pink cheeks with pink lips and both MAC's Girl About Town and Revlon's Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Lovesick have been serving me well. The former I like to pair with a simple base and just mascara on the eyes so the lips have all the attention and the latter has become a handbag staple, coming with me wherever I go for a quick top up of a moisture enriched fuchsia hue.

I've also been drawn to pink for nails, Rimmel's Rose Libertine being one of my current favourites, but it's Barry M's Bright Pink that takes the ticket for the perfect dolly shade which not only oozes Summery fun but when teamed with some gold midi rings looks quite sophisticated in my eyes.

Will you be breaking out the Pink this Summer?
