A Perky Pink Duo

I’m all for easy makeup; picks that work together to make me look more awake and more put together with minimal effort. At the moment it’s all pink-themed with two particular gems working together for maximum complexion perkiness.

My big blush crush of the moment is this beauty from Burberry – I can’t stop using it. It’s seriously gorgeous. You can check out the full post here! I absolutely love pink blush because it has this transformative quality to transform the complexion and instantly make everything appear brighter. Now the gold overlay has gone, it’s just turned into the prettiest dusky pink blush that manages to perfectly complement every makeup look. It works especially well with this lipstick because the tones are slightly cool and they just work together. I love having a matching lip and cheek colour as it really brings the whole makeup look together nicely and manages to make everything cohesive.

Matching the blush nicely is this new lipstick from Lipstick Queen; It’s The Truth from the nothing but the nudes collection. I’m just the biggest Lipstick Queen fangirl as I find the concepts behind the collections really interesting. This new edit has three different nudes with a pink, a beige and a peach… I went for the pink, obviously! The formula is really creamy and moisturising – it’s one of the most comfortable lip colours to wear in terms of how hydrating it is. It’s not too slippy or sheeny though! I’d compare it to the Mac cremesheen formula but it lasts longer on the lips and comes with a lot more pigment. A deluxe version.


Are you a fan of matching makeup, too?
