PRETTY IN PINK
In the midst of a long winter, I am feeling the need for a little pick-me-up. Sometimes a new blush and a new lipstick are all I need for a little glam in my everyday life as a stay-at-home mom. What is it about beautiful make-up that just makes you feel like you can conquer the day?
Although spring seems so far off, I was inspired to put together my favourite pink make-up hues. I love this look: it is soft enough for work, but romantic enough for evening outings. These are even the colours I used for my wedding day make-up!
If you’re like me and wished that your make-up looked as good as it did when you first applied, check out these amazing products that help make your flawless look last a full 12 hours.
Whether you need a new lip colour or a fancy new necklace, treat yourself this weekend!
FACE: THE BODY SHOP BB CREAM I am not a fan of the “caked on” foundation look so I love BB Creams. Matches easily with any skin tone and provides light to medium coverage.
LIPS: NARS LIPSTICK IN “GRETA” this colour in one word: WOW! Show- stopping gorgeous that will make people stop you and ask what colour you are wearing. This lipstick is enriched with vitamin E to help moisturize your lips. If you are looking for a colour like this without as much punch try: Nars: Funny Face.
LIP TINTS: FRESH SUGAR LIP TREATMENT If you are feeling apprehensive to try a bright pink lip, I have also linked my favourite tints. My husband put these in my stocking one year for xmas (I know, right?!) and I have been obsessed ever since.
EYE PRIMER: SMASHBOX 24 PHOTO FINISH EYE PRIMER I went looking for a product like this because I was sick of my shadow looking creased after only a few hours of wear. This stuff is awesome! Apply it on your lids, wait 60 seconds and then apply your shadow to last all day!
EYES: MAC COSMETICS EYESHADOW in “Girlie” and “Haux”. I use the lighter shade on the inner lid and darker shade on the middle to outer edge.
LINER: URBAN DECAY 24/7 EYE PENCIL in Smoke – If you still like a good ol’ eye pencil then this one is the best I have ever come across. Another one that goes on smooth and does not smudge after all-day wear.
BLUSH: QUO BAKED BLUSH IN “PINCH” – available in store. Pretty pink packed with highlighters.
NECKLACE: STELLA & DOT “CALLIE” STATEMENT NECKLACE When the new styles came out last Spring, this necklace was the first to catch my eye. So worth the splurge! The pink, grey and mint coloured stones are beautiful with a classy or casual outfit.
BROWS: THE BODY SHOP BROW & LINER KIT This little palate is great for someone who wants a little or a lot of brow! Easy to apply.
Hope you were inspired to add a little “girlie” to your make-up collection today!
