Paint Yourself Pink!

Pink makeup = romantic makeup. And wouldn't it be nice to wear your romatic makeup on Valentines Day?

I am lucky to be fair skinned in which most pinks look nice on me. I prefer the soft pastel pinks, but I like just about any type of pink makeup. If you are not that into Pinks, take a few of my suggestions, and I bet I change your mind.

I love this lip gloss crayon ($5) in the line, especially in Milky Rose - the most beautiful shade of rose petal pink. It's ease of use in that is glides on like a lipstick out of it's chubby stick but it looks sheer and glossy and low price tag are a huge plus! I also like to use their My Miistic Shadow ($9) in Tender Pink, which is a loose powder eyeshadow in pink with a hint of gold. It is in the cutest container that you dip the sponge tipped applicator into to get to the shadow.

For blushing in pink, I have a few favorites.

MAC and it's Minerals.

On a search for a new foundation, I was thrilled to learn of MAC's new Mineralize SatinFinish and Mineralize Skinfinish products. It just launched this week, and I ran out to snatch up one of each right away.

Upon first looking at the bottle of the Satinfinish, I loved the nifty pump - that slid to keep it open or closed,  which is just great. Closing the bottle by moving the pump to the right after each use, certainly extends the shelf-life - a major complaint I have with liquid foundations. I pumped out two squirts, but ultimately needed three to apply it for a nice even coverage to my face. I liked using a simple cosmetic wedge sponge to spread it out, and touched up with a foundation brush around my nose, lips, and eyes. The coverage was plenty for me, and as I played with it, I learned that it is definitely build able if you need more coverag all over, or just here and there.
