Whenever I think of summer time I think hot pink nail polish, flip flops & wafts of coconut scented sun cream lotion… ahhh the sights, sounds & scents of summer! Having a recent rummage around my own beauty goodies, I thought I’d put together a summer inspired look with a selection of my current pink-toned staples to create a bright & cheery finish to my typically pale complexion. Here’s the menu ladies…
N0 7 Beautifully Matte – having been persuaded by the sales lady at the No 7 counter a few weeks ago that this would put right to any horrid reflective/oily patches, I left the store feeling somewhat sceptical if I’d merely been reeled in by a good sales pitch on a Friday afternoon. Low and behold since then I’ve been sooo darn impressed with how well my skin has taken to this Matte Formula Foundation – made specifically for us oily pored gals. This is without a doubt my must-have summer foundation of 2015!
Rimmel Sun Shimmer – This is one bronzer no make-up collection should be without. The beautifully buildable warm tone allows you to softly add as much (or little) sun kissed glow as you feel your complexion needs. *Click Here* to catch up on my recent review of it in more detail!
Rimmel Stay Blushed in Pop of Pink – No pretty-in-pink complexion would be complete without a smidgen of soft pink blush to brighten up the apples of the cheeks. Rimmel’s Stay Blushed gives me such a subtle but healthy glow and with the right bronzer can look incredibly revitalising & dewy.
Urban Decay Naked 3 – Surprise, surprise ladies. Like you haven’t seen this before on Confetti & Curves, right?! 😉 Y’all know by now how much of an eye-shadow hoarder I am, yet the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette is ALWAYS my go to choice when I really want my eye’s to look their brightest. The Naked 3 selection of beautiful rose coloured shades is the perfect summery look for my pink themed transformation. Today I’m using Strange, Limit, Nooner & a light layer of trick on the bottom lash line for a hint of rose gold. I love it ❤
L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes in Deep Sapphire Blue – Only that my darling little sister passed this onto me I don’t think I’d ever have bought a blue mascara. In fact I’m usually found scanning the drug store shelves for the blackest of black mascara’s – avoiding colour at all cost! However seeing as it comes with the intent on brightening blue eyes I thought I’d give it a go. Rather impressed ladies I have to say. It has such a subtle hue of blue yet makes the colour of my eyes that tiny bit more striking. Thanks sis!
Barry M Bold White Liner Pencil – This is the most recent addition to my growing cosmetic collection. Having read about how beneficial a white liner can be for brightening up the eye’s I thought I’d give this one a go. So far it’s taking a little getting used to but it does enhance the colour ever so slightly. Have you tried a white liner yet?
Barry M Brow Kit – One of favourite investments this year… yes, it’s that impressive! This super-affordable little kit has worked wonders in shaping and contouring my bushy brows into some sort of neat and well-groomed order. The packaging is pretty chic looking too… well done Barry M, an all round winner!
Rimmel Apocalips – C’mon it’s my ‘Summer Time Pink’ edition, what else could I possibly choose to give a brighter flash of fuschia than this shocking shade? I must admit, bright lip colours usually unnerve me but seeing as the sun is shinning & my sunglasses are beaconing to be worn I couldn’t resist glamming up with this sassy summer shade.
So there you have it gal’s my Pink Edition Make Up Menu. What y’all think? Are you a lover of pink? What’s your favourite shade for the summer? As always let me know in the comments below – otherwise don’t forget to say a quick hello 🙂
Happy Monday Chums…
