pink beauty items

So Summer is finally here and despite the nasty hay fever and dreadful cough I have, I kinda love breaking out all the bright shades when the sun is shinning, one colour in particular...Pink, who doesn't love pink.

Starting with some blush, I cant get enough of pink blush. Its girly, pretty and totally summer appropriate. Firstly I have the Sleek Sweet Cheeks palette, this is the perfect trio for any blush lover. It comes with two powder blushes and one cream blush, all super pigmented, actually may be best to go a little light handed with these ones as you can end up a little clown like. The next blush I have is Bobbi Brown Apricot, now this is for the girl who doesn't like full on pink. It is a pink blush but it has a coral undertone, so its a little more flattering. I love this one,again its super pigmented and gives you that 'I've just come in from outside' pretty look to the cheeks.

Moving onto lips...my fave. I love a good pink lipstick. I have two options both amazingly bright and summery. The first one is Bourjois Velvet Matte In Pink Pong. This is literally like BAM, in you face pink. It is amazing though and it stays on the lips all day without fail. The other lipstick I have is the Rimmel Colour Rush Balm In Boom Chick A Boom (awesome name), this is creamy, easy to apply, feels comfortable to wear and smells like Mac lipsticks. I highly recommend. As for nail polish, there was only one that stood out to me and that Models Own for Tan In the shade Sun Hat, this is a neon pink polish that is meant to enhance the look of your tan, now I am a natural Casper the friendly ghost so I never tan and even so this nail polish looks amazing, so I highly recommend it and the other 3 coral/pink shades from the range. 

Lastly to add a pop of pink to they eyes, why not opt for the Naked 3 palette from Urban Decay, now you may fear pink shadow, but my trick is to pop a brown shade into the crease to get rid of that 'dead behind the eyes' look. You can't really go wrong with this palette, its a real beaut.

So there are my summer pink picks, let me know what you love wearing in the summer. Also anyone else feel instantly summery with a bright pink lip?
