Beauty Guide | 6 Shades of Pink for Valentines

I’ve always felt there to be something irrevocably tempting about the colour pink. Not just for princesses and ballerinas, there’s a rainbow of options from rich rose to bright fuchsia. Here’s a quick guide to 6 pink products in my current beauty wardrobe.

ANDALOU NATURALS | 1000 Roses Moroccan Beauty Oil
A soft and soothing treat for delicate skin, this blend of argan, rose, white tea and sea buckthorn multi-purpose oil can be used all over the body to help heal chapped skin. It’s surprisingly lightweight and sinks in quickly which makes it a great bedside or work table staple. I’ve especially been loving it for my nails and cuticles before bed. 

VICTORIA SECRET | Eau So Sexy Fragrance*
For those flirty dates, Eau So Sexy is vibrant, cheeky and fun. With notes of Chantilly cream, fresh apples and a hint of bergamot this fragrance leaves veil of sweetness without weighing you down. It leaves a creamy lingering scent on clothes and is perfect for those who want something light yet girly, it’s something I’d wear on a sunny weekend morning out for brunch.

PHYSICIANS FORMULA | Happy Booster Blush | “Rose”
For a quick everyday blushing cheek, this adorably packaged blend of shimmering pastels and rich rose makes this blush so effortless and easy to wear. This has been my go to blush on busy mornings or when I’m just looking for a little something to pick up my mood. The formula applies smoothly and without any heavy powdery residue and “rose” is especially pretty on light to medium complexions.

BOURJOIS | Rouge Edition Velvet* | “Pink Pong”
This one’s for the drama queens, the heroines and the non-conformists who love a big bold lip. The Rouge Edition Velvet applies like a cream and dries to a smooth and comfortable semi-matte finish on the lips that’s beautifully modern. The opaque formula paired with the precise wand even lets me cheat my lip line a little and create a really dramatic pout. You’ve seen my pair this with just some brows and satin skin over on Instagram and I’d do it again any day.

NYX | Mega Shine Gloss | “Beige”
Cute, shiny, girly, preppy, pretty much covers all aspects of this NYX lip gloss. I’ve mentioned it in last month’s favourites video and it seems to be a favourite of many of you out there as well! This medium toned pink pairs well with almost any makeup look and I find it polishes my makeup look whether I’m wearing a little makeup or a lot.

ESSIE | Nail Polish | “Van D’Go”
Easily one of my favourite pinks, Van D’Go is both is classic but with a twist. This pale opaque pastel pink with a blend of peach has a mod 60s feel yet is perfectly appropriate for that mid week work meeting. It’s also very smooth for a pastel colour and never fails to put me in a good mood when I have it on!

Now that I’ve shared mine, let me know your favourite pink item!
