FOTD: Pink Lips

A bold pink lip is one of my favourite ways to add a bit of brightness to my face, normally reserved for spring or summer but when worn with a subtle navy smoky eye I think it’s totally appropriate for winter too. The lipstick in question is 17’s Pink Power – my favourite bright pink and it’s cheap too. The formula is lovely, it’s opaque in one swipe and it’s a semi-matte finish so not too drying but without too much of a shine to it too.

For my eyes I used the Laura Mercier Sequin Eye Colour in Lapis along the lashes and then winged out for a subtle cat eye look, I used some of the 17 Perk & Paint Jumbo Liner on the water line (black on the top, pink on the bottom) and then I finished the look with a bit of the Bourjois Coup de Theatre mascara (Can’t find this online anywhere, so it’s possibly discontinued!). 

On my face I used the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum which is a little too dark for me but I love the formulation of it, it gives the skin a nice radiance without being too disco ball! I used a blush from FashionistA – New York I believe and a little Vanilla Pigment from MAC along the tops of my cheeks. Under my eyes I used the Collection Illuminating Touch Concealer to add a bit of brightness – this has no concealing properties so if you suffer with dark circles I wouldn’t recommend it for that. And finally, I brushed a little of the Benefit Bossy Eye Shadow through my brows to define them a little.

Are you a fan of bright lips in winter?

What’s your favourite way to brighten up your face?
