MOTD || #BreastCancerAwareness

For my first ever #MakeupOfTheDay post I have decided to something extra special… support the #WearItPink campaign as October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.

I don’t think it would surprise anyone I know that my make-up bag (and wardrobe!) features a hell of a lot of pink. Just yesterday my housemate joked about how she was hanging up her washing which looked ‘so dull and morbid’ compared to my bright hanging clothes of various shades of pink and coral. I love the colour, who cares if it’s winter?!

Inside my make-up bag…

Pink lipstick and blushers are a staple beauty item especially bright coral shades for the summer and subtle candy pastel shades for the winter.

Tried and tested PINK must-haves

My personal favourites and key pink essentials for my make-up bag are my No7 blusher in Coral Blush and my Mac lipstick in PLINK. I would definitely recommend these products to anyone and also for you all to get on and do your #MOTD blog post for Breast Cancer Awareness and donate online.

Lovin the bareMinerals Bright & Beautiful collection!

Before I moved up to London I wanted to treat myself to another pot of my absolute favorite foundation and to my surprise bareMinerals had just brought out a new set that only cost me £4 more to buy.

Inside the Bright & Beautiful Collection:

Full size bottle of the amazing Prime Time- I love this primer because even when I return home at 6.30pm and then quickly remember I have plans to go out, my make-up doesn’t even need a top up. The primer keeps it in place throughout the whole day.

Prime Time eye primer- This is great because it brightens up my eyes and gives them a light shimmer which is lovely and subtle for day to day wear. With some added night-time eye make-up it can also look great and sparkly in the evenings.

Full pot of foundation- There are three colour shades to choose from in this collection. So if you are a Light, Fairly light or Medium beige grab a collection now!

A pot of blusher- I really needed a new blusher and after having such a good experience with foundation I was very excited to try the bareMinerals blusher too. I picked the rose shade as it matched my skin tone well.

Blusher blush- I love my collection of make-up brushes and it’s a shame that the good brushes are always the expensive ones so I was very pleased to get a blusher brush for free with this set!

Eye shadow powder- I chose a dark grey/black eye shadow because I love doing smokey eyes ( although I haven’t quite mastered how amazing Cheryl Cole’s smokey eyes always look just yet).

Lipgloss- I chose a lightish pink shade because I tend to wear quite pastel pink lipsticks, and I thought the two colours would balance well. I love the bareMinerals lipgloss, it lasts for ages (even when I’m eating and drinking) and the colour looks fab!

Eyeliner- In my set I chose the black eyeliner, I’ve never really been too adventurous and tried different eyeliners purely because I can’t imagine they would stand out well enough but this one definitely does and has a no-smudge guarantee!

So with £4 more than just buying the foundation pot you cannot go wrong with all these gorgeous freebies!!
