Blue and Pastel Pink

The combination of various blues and pastel pink is pure 'pretty'.  To me its such a 'happy' colour combination.  I decided that I wanted to create a makeup look that is simple, natural and that you can wear with any blue/pink combo.  I started with a pink foundation base (L'oreal true match in C4 is perfect for my skin tone).  For a pretty pink blush, I went with NARS Mata Hari - NARS Angelika is another great option, but this morning, I just gravitated towards the Mata Hari shade :)  For my eyes, I decided to actually go for a charcoal grey instead of a blue toned liner because I wanted to create a defined and neutral eye look.  Since I'm wearing blue, I wanted something to compliment, not overpower and blend.  I used MAC Phone Number liner and then smudged Copperplate eyeshadow into the upper lash line.  I finished the eye look with black mascara.  For the perfect pastel lip - I went with NARS chubby liner in Roman Holiday.  I really wish they still had the lipstick, but the liner is uber pretty too :)

I took two photos of the same look.  One in more natural light without the scarf, and one at my work place with full accessories.  I think both looks really work well and the charcoal-grey eye with the pastel lip is perfect to compliment the blue/pink palette I'm wearing!
