Pretty Pinks , A Lipstick Queen Edit
The only kind of pink you’ll see me wearing is pinks in makeup and I’m not talking the bright, in your face pinks, think muted pinks, pastels and peachy pinks. There’s something so soft about pink cheeks that brings the whole look together. Here’s the Pretty pinks I love and the pinks that are easy to wear…
I used to be powder blush obsessed, it was all I wore and have found some favourites on the way. Plums, corals and pale pinks are the colours I usually go for to add some colour to my cheeks and create light makeup. Powders that are finely milled and packed together tend to work best on my skin so MAC and NARS are the brands I reach for day in day out. MAC Well Dressed is the ultimate subtle soft pink hue.NARS Orgasm is my go to – the rich gold toned pink creates healthy cheeks that appear radiant and bright. This is perfect for special occasions when you want that extra glow and some added highlight. Deep Throat is the other NARS blush I can’t keep my hands off – packed full of light particles.
I’ve been obsessed with the cream blush trend this year and all the new blushers I’ve brought.For an easy, effortless, quick early morning pop of colour then Clinique Chubby Sticks are just the best. Robust Rhubarb is the perfect in-between peach and pink shade.Philosophy Lit From Within is one of my favourite pinks, the formula is oh so dreamy, pigmented but light and intense but buttery. Total heaven.
If you’re after a new lip balm then Lanolips should be up there in your top 3 choices. Lip Ointment SPF15 Rose, is a saviour for dry lips that need protecting hydrating and a tint of colour. The balmy texture works well alone on lips or even added on top of a lipstick for some extra moisture and to add a light sheen. By Terry has rocked the lip balm world with her famous Baume De Rose being a best seller and award winner but also on offer we have the glosses which contain the same ingredients to nourish and replenish lips but are tinted and add a lovely shine on your lips. Rosy Baby has become a lip staple for me on a daily basis whereas Gloss Terbyl Shine is more of an actual lip gloss just without the sticky, tacky feeling texture that some glosses leave.
