50 Shades of Pink

Recently the American underwear chain Adore Me introduced me to their Lashes & Lingerie challenge, asking me to do a makeup look for one of their sets". Seeing as I do class myself as a beauty blogger, yet I don't think I have ever done a "make up look" post. So with this opportunity arriving I accepted the challenge.

The idea behind this post was for me to go onto the Adore Me website, pick a lingerie set from their wide selection of sets that I like and to come up with a makeup look of my choosing. Out of all of there lovely sets I picked the pink Romper Corina. I love the dusky pink, not too bright but not a dull pink and with the black lace detailing around the edge. I think this a gorgeous set for someone like myself that isn't overly confident with there body. For their full range of lingerie sets click here, they are all gorgeous! 

The look I went for is a very light base which I used Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Tinted Moisturiser in Light 1, this evens out my skin tone beautifully but doesn't disguise my freckles and I wanted them to show through on this look. For concealer I placed Collection Illuminating Touch Brightening Concealer in Natural 2 under my eyes and on any red areas, I love using this concealer on days where I want only a littler coverage. To set it all in place I grabbed my trusty Mac Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in NW25, I seriously love this powder makes my makeup stay in place all day and keeps me matte.

Onto my eyes, I used my favourite ever eye primer; Urban Decay Primer Potion seriously if you don't own this product you need to go out and purchase it. For my shadow I used a palette I don't hardly ever pick up my Naked 3. I am a Naked 2 girl through and through but for this look I knew I wanted pinks so it was an obvious choice for me. I placed Buzz all over my lids up to the crease and blended it up slightly. In the crease I grabbed Factory, I didn't want a DARK smokey eye just something to define that outer V. And for an added pop in the middle of my eyes I dabbed on a little Dust. For my winged liner I used Naked 2 Blackout as I wanted to keep this a soft look. Then I applied lashings of Maybelline Lash Sensational, bloody love this mascara.

For the rest of my face, I used my usually Naked 2 Tease to shape and fill in my brows. Please ignore the state they are in the girl who does them is currently in Florida, so a girl is having to wait a while longer to get them done. For contour I used the lighter brown shade in Makeup Revolution Sugar and Spice palette, this gives me a very soft subtle contour opposed to my Hoola which I would usually use. My blush is MAC Pinch Me, I have had this blush forever and I've hardly made a dint in it. It does give me that perfect slightly flushed look. And for highlight I placed my number one highlighter, yes you guessed it Mary-Lou Manizer. Finally for my lips I used Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk just to do a light line around my lips. Then placed MAC Show Orchid all over the lips, this was far too bright on its own so I grabbed my Shy Girl to tone is down. I think it worked a treat giving me a nude lip with a lovely pink undertone. 

I really enjoyed doing this look and I will hopefully be doing more of them now I have done this look. What sort of look would you have chosen?!
