Brighten your mood and your make-up bag with these feminine pink buys - from hot magenta to sheer rose
Before the sun has warmth and we can discard the winter coat for good, the perfect shade of pink is an easy way to lift your mood and brighten a grey day. We think we’ve found that elusive hue in the new YSL La Laque Couture in Rose Scabiosa. A chic petal pink, wear this sophosticated colour now to capture a little piece of spring before the new season.
The new Diorblush Trianon Edition Vibrant Colour Powder Blush is almost too gorgeous to use! Embossed with a 17th Century Fontanges bow and a string of pearls, this pretty compact also features a contouring brush, to help you create killer cheekbones.
It may not look like it, but this pot of highly pigmented powder from MAC can create subtle looks as well as high intensity bursts of colour. Lightly wash eyelids with a gentle sweep of the brush, or create high drama by building up the powder for a heavy burst of magenta. Our favourite look? Highlight the inner corners of your eyes with a dab of this hot pink hue. Perfect.
Brighten tired winter eyes with Laura Mercier’s Illuminating Eye Colour in Opal. A soft and supple powder that is easy to apply, the dazzling pearl finish will highlight your natural eye colour and open up peepers for a beautiful new you.
Another fabulous compact that we want to display on our dressing tables! The YSL Palette Blush Limited Edition features a matte and a shimmer variation of the same colour for different finishes, depending on which look you are aiming to create. The perfect way to lift your mood on a grey winter’s day.
On board with the bare legs trend this season? Make sure your skin looks perfect – even in winter – with the Benefit “take a picture…it lasts longer…” Body Shimmer. To apply, simply sweep over skin in circular motions with the velvet puff. A gorgeous pinky gold, skin is left with an irresistible glow. Use on legs, arms – and even hair to tame flyaway tresses.
