MILLENNIAL PINK - The Beauty Edit.



You're probably used to hearing the phrase 'millennial pink' being thrown about a lot recently. Fashion bloggers have been going putty for it ever since Pantene announced Pale Dogwood as one of their colours for Spring 2017 and designers have been featured the shade in a lot of their SS17 collections. 

It's a shade that's very hard to describe, mainly because it isn't one particular shade. It's on a spectrum of a few shades of pink- from bubblegum, to peachy, to a intense hot pink. I personally see it as a milkshake pink, with hints of peach. 

It verges on the edge of neutral and pairs beautifully with a minimal wardrobe of white, greys and blacks. Of course, wearing pinks on our clothes is not for everyone however sporting the trend through make up is a much easier way of wearing it. 

WAYS TO WEAR 

Eye Shadow - Thanks to the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette, wearing soft pinks on our eyes couldn't be easier. UD have done all the hard work and you're left with 12 shades of Millennial Pink that can be mixed and matched to create an array of looks from day to night and matte or shimmery. The shades are super flattering for a range of skin tones and eye colours, they look neutral but still a hint of something different.

Highlighter - I am obsessed with MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Beaming Blush. It's a duo chrome soft pink with a gold reflects, swiped over the tops of the cheekbones it captures the light effortlessly. Beautiful for every day and, when applied with a wet brush, can be amped up to full blown blinding.

Blush - The Natural Collection Blushed Cheeks Blusher in the shade Peach Melba has been a staple in my collection for years. This matte shade is the perfect balance of peach and pink and sculpts but adds natural definition to the cheeks. It's completely matte and is ideal for everyday. 

Lips - If the packaging alone doesn't draw you in like magpie for the YSL Rouge Volupte then the colour will. The shade 1 (very creative YSL) is a matte soft nude pink that's super hydrating and full opaque colour in one swipe. It has a lightweight feel with a slightly shiny finish.

If the lipstick is still too much for you pink-phobs, then the Dior Lip Maximizer is right up your street. The pink is very sheer but the glossy finish is very pretty, plus it plumps your lips! what more could you want?
