Pink Picks | Valentine's Day BeautySunday, February 09, 2014
Valentine's Day is a 'holiday' with a bittersweet reputation but whether you celebrate it with a loved one or spend it with a movie and a pizza, we can all agree that it's a great excuse to break out the bright pinks during the season of muted and vampy neutrals.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the more fall/winter appropriate colours, i live for a gorgeous vampy red lip, but by the time February rolls around I'm itching for a little spring time pop.
A full face of bright, fresh colour or a simple pink nail - there are so many options to bring a little sunshine into your life. So, i've compiled a few of my favourite pinks to share with you lovely readers!
A nice fresh flush is super easy to pull off in the winter with something like Sephora's Cream Contour Blush in Poppy Pink or NYX's powder blush in Pinched.
If you're more of a lip lover than try Revlon's Lip Butter in Raspberry Pie, Maybelline's Colour Elixir in Captivating Carnation or NYX's Extreme Lip Creme in Natural.
For eyeshadow, try something with a pink or purple shimmer that you can mix with any neutral look, like Rimmel's Glam Eyes in Burgandy Palace.
Or for a super pretty nail, try a pink creme with a fun glitter on the ring finger. My favourites for this look is Essie's Fiji and A Cut Above.
And of course to top it all off, spray on your favourite light and fresh perfume, I'm in love with Victoria by Victoria's Secret.
Are you doing anything exciting for Valentine's Day?
