Cle Cosmetics Melting Lip Powder in "Barbie Pink"

Cle Cosmetics

This melting lip powder is everything you want in a lip nourisher and stain with a soft matte finish. Unlike anything you've tried before, it starts out as a powder on the lips, then when warmed with natural body heat turns into a liquid matte stain that lasts all day. An easy to apply matte lip that doesn't make a mess? Sounds perfect! You can layer the color to be as sheer or as bold as you like, and blend with your finger for a more ombre-look effect.

Benefit Cosmetics That Gal Brightening Face Primer

Benefit Cosmetics

This pink tinted primer is essential to use when you want even skin tone and a soft glow to last through the day. I use this on almost every client I do makeup for because it really helps calm the skin down if it's irritated or flushed and acts as a great prime layer before foundation. Apply with a soft brush all over the face to create an even complexion and then finish with your favorite foundation or tinted face moisturizer. Looking for a foundation that lasts through the day and leaves a soft matte finish on the skin? ​Try this new Power Fabric formula from Giorgio Armani Beauty.

Nars Blush in "Orgasm"

A cult favorite among makeup artists and pretty much every makeup addict, this peachy-pink blush is universally flattering on any skin tone and gives an instant brightness and pop of color to the cheek. If you're more of a cream blush type of gal, try the multiple cream stick formula, and you can even pair it with the matching Orgasm lipgloss, too! I love using this product all year round with or without bronzer, it gives the perfect amount of color even for those who want to wear very minimal makeup. 

Makeup Artist Tip: The right way to apply blush is very easy. Start at the apple of the cheek and blend in an upward motion along the cheekbone, so the blush doesn't look like it's just sitting in two circles on the face. This also goes the same for cream blush products, but it's important to warm them on the hand first before applying to ensure they go on smooth and not ruddy. Get some cream blush on your fingers and rub them on your hand, lightly tapping the apples of the cheeks then blending upright for a natural finish. You can finish with a liquid highlighter on top for a dewy glow.

Alima Pure Lip Tint in "Daisy"

Alima Pure

This natural lip tint gives a pop of pink that is moisturizing and minty. Lip tints are a great alternative to lipstick, as they are perfect to wear during the day and are hassle-free when applying. These tints are a great option because of how long they wear and the minty smell, too. You can wear this product alone, as a base for lipstick, or underneath lipgloss. 

Want to create a monochromatic pink makeup look? Apply this shadow in "Siren" to the eyes, and finish with a few coats of lengthening mascara. This image here is a great example of pairing pink eyeshadow and lipstick looks together.

Clarins Ombre Iridescente Eyeshadow in "Silver Rose"


Start by layering this cream iridescent eyeshadow on the lid as a base for a powder shadow or wear it alone for a soft shimmer. I love products that you can use multiple ways because you really get the most out of your investment when purchasing them. This romantic pink hue is also a perfect shade to pop in the corners of eyes and center of the eyelid for a highlight.
