On Wednesdays We Wear Pink

I wouldn’t say I am a huge wearer of pink when it comes to clothes. The odd blush shaded sweater here, or pink scarf there for a pop of colour. Mean Girl quote aside though, I do love a bit of pink on the lips cheeks and even eyes (makes the green really pop!) The other day I noticed that I had a collection of pink packaged items on my vanity and it had me thinking about all my favourite pink makeup bits…

When it comes to eyes, a sheer wash of golden pink makes the green really pop, which is why I love my Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in #16. I pat it on with a finger and then it sets, staying all day. Naturally lashings of black mascara finishes the look, and coincidentally two I’m liking are both packaged in pink – Essence I Heart Crazy Volume Extreme which I raved about way back when here, and the new Benefit Roller Lash. (available Feb 27th)

With spring coming a nice pop of warm pink on the cheeks is fresh and soft with the Real Techniques Blush Brush. My go to shade is always Benefit’s Bella Bamba, which I’ve heard has sadly been discontinued, but can still be found on Amazon and probably ebay. Run don’t walk to go get it!

I love a soft pink on the lips, and two easy and fuss free pinks are Bourjois Peach on the Beach (which wears much more pink than peach on me) and Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector in 01, 02 or 05. 

What’s your favourite way to wear pink?
