{ beauty inspiration: think pink }

January 20, 2015



Still confused on how to wear pink? My favorite way to wear pink product is when the rest of your look isn’t overly girly. Throw your hair up in a loose bun and mess it up. Add pointy brown flats and a striped basic tee or an oversized gray sweater and go. Make sense?

My favorite pink shadow right now is a mix of two Bobbi Brown cream shadows ( velvet plum with a touch of cool lilac ) which creates kind of a mauve-y tone. Something about it feels less princess-like than most shimmery pink shadows. For face, add a blush with a brown tone to balance out the matte pink you’ll also wear on your lip. I go with Nars contour blush in Olympia. Next, add your second pink: lipstick queen’s “saint pink”. I apply it with a finger so it’s a little imperfect and for this look skip the lip liner. A light dusting of bronzer, highlighter and black mascara and you’re out the door.

    This is exactly the inspiration I needed on this freezing and snowy day. This is the perfect “I know it’s not spring, but I’m ignoring that fact” look. I need to look into that Velvet Plum shadow. It looks so gorgeous!
