Fall Beauty Trends: Pink Beauty Is Perfectly Pristine
If I want to turn on the glamour that's effortless and no-fuss, I turn to Pink Beauty . This season it's all about Perfectly Pristine (limited edition $65), regal and sexy yet unmistakably classic and gorgeous. This lovely collection features all the products you need to achieve a red carpet look inspired by the glamourous faces of Old Hollywood.
Luscious Lipsheer Lipstick, Elsie: This is definitely a staple in my beauty stash! I've given this wearable red lippie rave reviews a few times in the past and it never disappoints. Elsie is the perfect red to wear anytime of the day. It's buildable so you can get a sheer wash of colour and for a stronger hue apply more layers for night. The formula is also super moisturizing and it feels like you're wearing a lip balm.
Lip Scintillate Lip Gloss, Fabulah: A new favourite! Fabulah gives your lips a sheer kiss of cherry hue. Looks pretty on its own if you want a hint of colour and lots of shine or over top of Elsie which gives it a rich red colour. Complimented with a yummy scent and a non-sticky texture. No need to shy away from this red!
Cream Radiance Rouge, Captivate: This red-rose shade gives the cheeks a healthy dose of colour. These cream blushes are buildable and can be layered until your desired intensity. Also a multi-tasker, these blushes can be worn on the lips as a creamy stain or underneath a favourite lipstick or gloss. It has a hint of a rosy scent and has a creamy texture that is never sticky and very blendable. Colour lasts and lasts.
Eye Splendor Shadow Velvet Finish, Sweet Nothings and Devoted: I love the velvety matte finishes of these shadows. The colour payoff is great and never creases. Sweet Nothings is a bone white that can be worn as an overall shadow, base, or a highlighter. Devoted is a brown black which is a softer alternative to black. It is not included in the collection but is a perfect pair for classic eyes. Use this as a liner with Sweet Nothings swiped across the entire lid. Devoted can also give the eyes a sultry smoky finish. It has become one of my new favourite browns!
The Look: Pale eyes meet cherry cheeks and a bold red pout. Crisp, clean lids paired with super-rosy cheeks and red-stained lips are reminiscent of Veronica Lake. Our Perfectly Pristine collection is regal and sexy yet unmistakably classic and gorgeous.
Limited Edition Perfectly Pristine collection $65 ($93 value). Includes free shipping (use code FALL).
