A Fresh and Summery Pink Makeup Look

Ever since the Chanel JC blush in Pink Explosion came into my collection, I’ve been rocking pink like there is no tomorrow.  A flush of fuschia on the cheeks and lips has been my go-to, and I’ve been feeling very fresh and summery.
I put this look together with a neutral but heavily lined eye and bright lips and cheeks, and for me the result is very wearable. I brought out some new additions to my collection along with some old favourites, with the star of the show definitely being Pink Explosion. 
Face of Australia Face Base Primer
Illamasqua Skin Base
Maybelline Dream Matte Powder
Chanel JC in Pink Explosion
MAC Painterly Paint Pot
Dior Fairy Golds Palette (from the Grand Bal collection, review here)
MAC Coquette (for lower lashline and brows)
Face of Australia Liquid Liner in Black
Face of Australia Impact Curl mascara (upper lashes)
Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara in Black Shimmer (for lower lashes)
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Smitten 
I’ve been so impressed with the Revlon Balm Stains, the most pigmented ones are my favourite (Smitten, Adore and US only Rendezvous) and they really do last on the lips. I’ve been wearing Illamasqua’s Skin Base for a while now and the colour match is perfect, and the coverage is quite nice as well. I’ll wear it a little more before I commit to a full review, but so far I’d say it is a winner. There are quite a few of my old favourites in this look, and a whole stack of my beloved Face of Australia.
