With Valentine’s Day right around the corner I decided to give homage to the wonderful color PINK! Pink is the quintessential color for the “girly girl.” Pink encompasses everything romantic, soft, gentle, sweet, lovable and of course fun. There are so many different shades of pink and different ways you can rock it. I am not a big fan of wearing pink clothes, but I love to accessorize with it and most definitely enjoy wearing it on my face:)
With that said here are beauty options for rocking the color pink on the most romantic holiday – Valentine’s Day!!
ILLAMASQUA Lipstick in Plunge – This lipstick is described as a bright bubblegum pink. I cannot agree more. This is the perfect “Barbie” pink. It will really help channel your inner Barbie. This lipstick is great because it is a matte finish. If you like a more glossy or shiny lip I would recommend you use a clear gloss over it to achieve your desired look. If you haven’t tried Illamasqua’s lipsticks before, you are in for a real treat. These lipsticks have great pigment, are long-lasting and they feel so luxurious.
MAC Swish Eye Shadow $15 – This is one of my all time favorite MAC eye shadow colors. This is a frost and is described as being a bright pink with icy shimmer. You may be intimidated by this color at first glance, but rest assured that this color is very wearable and you can use it for both a day or night look. This eye shadow is also great for all skin tones. I like to wear this eye shadow all over my lid and then use a very soft brown color in my crease just to add definition and a pretty matte highlight color under my brow. To get a more intense color you can add a base and really build the color up. You can also smoke out this look by adding a darker color in the outer v. Or you can be very subtle with this color and use it in your inner tear duck for a pop of color. This color is so versatile. I love it!
Burberry Light Glow – Coral Pink No. 09 $42 – This is luxury wrapped in a little package. Yes, I know this is pricey, but ahhhhh it is so amazing! First off, the packaging is uber cute. It has the traditional Burberry etchings on the outside and when you open the package the blush itself has that same etching. This color is more of a darker pink color with a hint of coral. It is especially great for those with darker skin tones. This is a lightweight blush that has a satin finish so it is great for creating a nice flushed look.
Butter London Fruit Machine Nail Lacquer $15 – I love all Butter London nail polishes. They are easy to apply and have great pigmentation. Two coats are you are out the door. I also like the untraditional shape of their bottles. It really makes them stand out against other nail polishes. This color is a pale light bubblegum pink. It is a really girly color. It looks best with those who have fair skin tones. This color is also great for nail art.
NARS Turkish Delight $25 – This lip gloss is very widely known as Kim Kardashian’s go to lip. This lip gloss is described as being a pink sorbet. It is perfect for achieving a nude pale pink lip. It is a very versatile color. You can wear it on top of a nude lip stick to give you a nice pink tint or you can wear this over a pink lipstick to give it more flavor. NARS lip glosses are great because they are long-lasting, hydrating and they aren’t sticky! We all know we hate sticky glosses. This lip gloss is perfect for all skin tones and would compliment any outfit.
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Woodstock $20 – 24/7 Eye Pencils are one of Urban Decay’s most loved, and most popular product. These eye pencils are really creamy, have great pigmentation and last all day. The formula is very to easy to blend and is also great for smudging. Woodstock is a fuchsia pink color with and silver sparkle. You can layer this product to achieve a real intense color. You can use this as a base to really intensify the eye shadow that you are applying. This is also great to apply on your lower lash line to add some fun to any eye look. If you are really daring this is also great to use as an eyeliner with some black mascara. A very simple, but unforgettable look.
I hope you enjoyed my homage to the color PINK. Be sure to take part in the Valentine’s Day spirit and add a little pink to your makeup look!
