Spring is one of my favourite seasons along with summer. Not only do the days get longer and the weather starts to improve but there are also changes in my makeup routine. I tend to ditch the full coverage foundations (unless I’m having a particularly bad skin day of course) and reach for lighter options and seemingly, I start to wear a lot more pink! Pink blushes, pink lipsticks etc. So today, I thought I’d share some of my favourite Pink Beauty Picks for Spring..
H&M Powder Blusher in Pink Coral |
I love the H&M beauty range and the blushers are amazing! Pink Coral is a fab pick for all year round but it’s even better for spring! It’s sheer formula is quite buildable so if you prefer a more subtle look with just a hint of colour on your cheeks this is perfect or if you prefer something more bold you can also achieve this!
Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Lovely Pink |
I’ve only recently rediscovered my love for these blushes, they are incredible and so pretty! Lovely Pink is a very pale peachy pink shade with a fair amount of glitter in it but don’t fret if you hate glitter because it really looks stunning on the skin! In my opinion, this is one of the best shades for us pale gals. I’m gonna be using this a lot this season.
Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette |
I’ve had this palette for about 3 years now and it’s still my favourite palette ever and a great option for spring. If you love wearing rosy pink eyeshadows, this palette is a must have. My favourite shades are ‘Dust’, ‘Burnout’ and ‘Buzz’ which if paired together just create the most gorgeous look. All the shadows in this palette are extremely pigmented, buttery and apply like a dream. There is little fallout and you can create a ton of different looks with this palette including a smoky eye thanks to shades like ‘Darkside’ and ‘Blackheart’.
Maybelline Color Tattoo in Pink Gold |
Every time I look at this eyeshadow, I just swoon. It is so beautiful. Pink Gold is a soft pink cream eyeshadow with flecks of gold glitter included, it’s gorgeous when worn alone or with other shadows. Sometimes I find cream eyeshadows to be a bit hit and miss in terms of pigmentation but this one really packs a punch, usually one or two swipes with your finger is enough. It’s a great pick for if you want something quick and easy to apply.
Clinique Pop Lip Colour in Sweet Pop |
This is, in my eyes, the perfect pink lipstick! I would describe Sweet Pop as a great everyday pink, it’s not too bold but it’s not subtle either, it’s just perfect. It applies opaque and has a glossy finish, it’s texture is so creamy and it leaves my lips feeling nourished and super comfortable. It has a great wear time too. I really need to try more from this range!
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Addis Ababa |
It probably comes as no surprise to anyone who regularly reads my blog that a Soft Matte Lip Cream has made the cut. I’m obsessed. Addis Ababa was one of the first shades I bought and I love it! I wouldn’t say it’s as bold as the packaging would suggest but it is quite intense, for me anyway who would normally stick with a subtle lip colour. Addis Ababa is probably best described as a hot pink shade, it’s vibrant with cool undertones and as with all of the lip creams dries down to a comfortable matte finish.
MAC Lipstick in Creme Cup |
If you love a soft almost pastel pink lipstick, I definitely would recommend you pick up Creme Cup. It’s a great lipstick to just pop on if you’re in a hurry. It’s cremesheen formula may not be the most long lasting but as it applies with ease, it’s no problem having to re-apply throughout the day. Creme Cup is the most beautiful shade especially for us pale skinned gals.
