On Wednesday, We Wear Pink

Okay, so that wasn't supposed to the title to this post, but when I realised that I was going to be posting it today and that it was pink related, it really couldn't have been anything else. Right? 
Well, on Monday I was looking through my makeup collection, trying to switch up products in my bag ready for my weekend away and for the spring season. It dawned on me that I own a lot of pink makeup products, mainly lipsticks and glosses but there were other things thrown in there too. To be really honest, I'm not sure why I own them because I never wear them. I thought that I would grab a few products and attempt to make them work for me. I was pretty pleased with what I came up with and think that my pink products are going to get a lot more lovin'.

For my base, I used my newly purchased and much loved L'oreal Lumi Magique foundation in Rose Beige and MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NW20.
The eyes was where I was really worried about placing pink eyeshadow because it made me think of when I was about 12 and was in love with a very chalky and powdery eyeshadow that was the most ridiculous shade of hot pink. I used my Sephora Colour Pop-Up Makeup Store, which you can read about here. This is wonderful for any makeup look as it has all sorts of shades and finishes. You can use any other palette with pinks in, as I'm aware that you might not have this. If you wanted to purchase it, it is only available from the European Sephora website or on Ebay. I used two of the pink shades, one being more peachy and the other being a soft pink, I mixed the two and really softly applied them to the lid, so that there would be a hint of colour but nothing too much. I blended out with a neutral matte taupe and I finished with a highlight and mascara.
For my cheeks, I decided not to apply my usual bronzer as I wanted the blush to be solo. I applied MAC Fleur Power Blusher with a stippling brush to add a natural flush of colour to the apples of my cheeks.
Lips was where I knew I was going to struggle, because I had so many pinks to choose from. I ended up choosing Maybelline Colour Sensational lipstick in Fuchsia Flash. This is an extremely bright blue toned pink and it was a little much for the look I was going for. I decided to just dab it onto my lips and blend it out with my fingers to give it a toned down look.

So, that was my pink wearing post. I think I'm probably going to wear this look a little more often throughout Spring. What do you think to wearing pink?
