Pretty in Pink!

Pretty in Pink!

Pink has been dubbed as the key colour trend for AW15/16.

Bubblegum, fuschia, dusty mauves, and soft pinks have filtered their way from the catwalk and into the makeup kits of guru’s and artists.

Whether its a subtle nude pink lipgloss or a deep mauve eye shadow, this colour remains versatile and dynamic in its feminity.

Let’s have a look at a few ways you can rock this trend throughout the remainder of summer!


A must-have in every girls beauty bag is her favourite pink lipstick. In most instances, she’ll have more than one! We love the Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick in Roussy (R505 at Chanel counters and selected Department stores).

The Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick Collection is releasing 6 beautiful pink shades this March so keep your eyes open once it hits shevles!

A lipstick more friendly on the wallet is the Clarins Rouge Eclat Lipstick in Tropical Pink (R270 at Clarins counters at selected Department stores and pharmacies.)

You can’t go wrong with a good blush. Created to leave you looking youthful and radiant, we cant get enough of the Clarins Cream Blushes. Their creamy and soft texture allow the product to melt into the skin, sculpting and adding a hint of colour for a natural-looking finish. We love the Clarins Cream Blush in Candy (R300 at Clarins counters at selected Department stores and pharmacies.)

We love a good smokey eye. This time around, however, we’re keeping it sublte and flirty with a mixture of soft pinks and lilacs and hints of sparkle. For this, we love the YSL Couture Palette in Rose Baby Doll (R695 at YSL counters at leading retailers nationwide.)

We also love the Revlon PhotoReady Eye Art Lid + Line + Lash Limited Edition Shadow Duos that are launching this month as a budget friendly buy.
