I’ve become a bit of a girly girl recently, more than usual, as I’ve been loving everything pink in sight. Rose pinks, baby bubblegum pinks and even bright pinks I just adore – they are too pretty to resist, right? I’ve collected together my current favourite and highly recommend pink products to show you my much-loved pops of pink.
First up I’m starting with the face and reminiscing over an old classic, Nars Orgasm Blush. We all know how hyped this product is and it’s simply because its so great. This lightweight but perfectly pigmented blush adds that bit of rosiness you need for a subtle natural glow, especially because of its gold flecks of glitter throughout the product. It adds just the right amount of sparkle. For a brighter pop of pink, one that gives you that ‘Winter-cold-fresh-glow’ look is the Too Faced Love Flush Blush in Justify My Love. This blush is more on the matte side and perfect for those days you want some extra colour.
Speaking of a glow, I’ve got the perfect glowy pink products to help you illuminate and sparkle. The Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Highlighter in Aura is a beautiful light pink shade with a holographic finish; it’s so unique I’ve never seen anything quite like it. For added longevity and pop of glam the Benefit High Beam is the perfect base. I apply this with a damp beauty blender to the high points of my face.
For eyes I’ve got two palettes for the transition into Spring. The Naked 3 palette from Urban Decay, an old favourite and must-have piece is the palette full with pink shades, ranging from mattes to shimmer and lights to darks. This palette is faultless in terms of formula, shade range and packaging as I’m sure most of you are aware of with Urban Decay. A palette I’ve been using a hell of a lot recently has a tonne of gorgeous shades in the prettiest pink packaging, which is the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette. My god isn’t it a stunner? With this palette there is so much versatility with the looks you can create, with hot pinks, subtle browns and shimmery purples. The performance of these shadows is outstanding, which is why I use it often and the shades are so easy to blend. My favourites are Almond Truffle, Bordeaux and Cotton Candy.
This post wouldn’t be complete without adding some gorgeous pink lip shades in. I’ve had a handful of favourites for different finishes. For gloss I love to use the Urban Decay Revolution High-Colour Lipgloss in Liar, a subtle rose shade. You can add this gloss to many shades of lipsticks and liners, my favourite being MAC in Mehr or their liner in Whirl. For a matte finish, which I love the most, is ColourPop’s Ultra Matte in Clueless, a matte dusty mauve and for a brighter pop of pink we have Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Lume, a bright fuchsia pink. I love the formula of both of these and both give incredible pigmentation and full coverage. To pair with Clueless my favourite liner is MAC’s Soar (top), oh my it’s such a pretty pairing for a daytime pink mauve. Another liner that is great for a pink lip is MAC’s Whirl (bottom), which is a lot more versatile and can pair with many shades (I just wish these came in something other than a wooden pencil for smoothness).
I’m all pinked out!
