To celebrate October as Breast Cancer Awareness month, me and three beautiful bloggers have come together to help create awareness. Say hello to Dagmara (Mummy’s Beauty Corner), Pam (Pam Scalfi) and Honia (Lovely Attitude, xoxo) and be sure to hop over and say hello to all of them! Each of us will be incorporating pink into our post as it’s the colour of Breast Cancer Awareness campaign.
After all my hard work (not really, I jest), I finally noticed after taking my pictures that the shades are not showing up as pink as I thought they would. And this is the second time I’m redoing the look because the first look showed up as brown even though I used W7 In The Nude palette which is a dupe for Urban Decay Naked Palette 3. FML…sorry ladies.
As my base, I used my trusty Becca Backlight Primer Filter and Chanel Vitalumière Aqua and this combination gives me beautiful skin even though I am currently having some hormonal breakouts. I reached for No Dark Shadows Complexion Enhancer as my highlighting concealer and used it under my eyes, a touch around my nose to cover some redness and Vichy Teint Idéal Highlighter* on top of my cheeks, down my nose and on my cupid bow. To finish the face, I bronze with the matte bronzer from Coastal Scent Blush and Bronzer Mini Palette and added a light sweep of Mysterious from the Stila palette.
For my eyes I applied Too Faced Shadow Insurance as eye primer and then I decided to use my most recent purchase, Stila Perfect Ma, Perfect Hue palette because in real life it looks like the perfect soft pink palette.
Apparently I am colour blind…
I used Curious as base on my lids up to the brow bone, Feisty in my crease and outer v, Daring on the lids, Magnetic to deepen the outer v and as eye liner and finally, Captivating to highlight under the brow bones and the inner corner of my eyes. I used ColorPop Gel Liner (Swerve) to tight line, Stila Kajal Eye Liner (Topaz) on my waterline and Maybelline Lash Sensational for my lashes.
Now I know many might find this strange but I always do my eyebrows after I finish my eye makeup. My recent eyebrow combination has been filling in with Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil and Essence Make Me Brow. Lastly I reached for Sephora Cream Lip Stain (Marvellous Mauve) to finish the look.
Let us all do our part to help spread more awareness so hopefully more lives will be saved. You can also help by donating to Breast Cancer charities such as Breast Cancer Care & Research Fund and Wear It Pink.
While I am kicking myself for not achieving the pink look, I do hope you lovelies enjoyed this post and maybe learned a thing or two about breast cancer. Also don’t forget to say hello to the other beautiful ladies!
