Roses are the purest expression of happiness, joy, sweetness and everything that is pretty and feminine in this world. I love the colour of rose - its the perfect balance of pink and blush:
Now that spring is approaching, I'm going through my makeup case looking for that perfect rose shade! Here are a few of my favourites:
Yves Saint Laurent makes the most perfect shade of rose - #9 lipstick (Rose Stiletto) - This colour is the most lovely shade of rose that I've come across - I'm addicted to how creamy and satiny YSL lipstick feels on my lips!
MAC makes a stunning soft plumy-rose shade called 'Capricious' - If you're looking for a rose colour, but want a sheer texture, this is perfect. Capricious is such an elegant colour!!!
I wanted to create a soft look with taupey-grey shades on the eyes, so I blended copperplate and print eyeshadows (MAC) and applied this mix to my lids and blended in into my crease as well. I lined my eyes with Charbon eyeliner (Lise Watier) and used 'Copperplate' on an angled-brush and smudged it into the top lashline. I used Mocha blush my MAC (a stunning soft plum-pink shade) and finished off the look with my favourite Rose-toned lipcolour YSL #9
This spring, surround yourself with the colour of pink roses - you will instantly feel happiner and more feminine!!!
