As a big makeup fan, messing around with new makeup is always fun and when Glo Minerals asked me to create a “Pretty In Pink” look using their mineral-based makeup range, I was like ch-YEAH.
Glo Minerals then sent me three great products to use and I spent yesterday morning messing around with them. It’s a bit like that round on Masterchef or Ready Steady Cook where the chefs are given some ingredients and expected to make a masterpiece. But was my look going to be Pretty Pinky or Pretty Stinky?
Apologies, that was poor – moving on – these are the products I was sent!
What have we got and how did I use them??
First up – a lovely lipstick, pink of course, and slightly frosted. Pink Sugar is a good universal colour which could be worn by all skintones. It’s really comfortable on the lips and doesn’t draw too much attention to dry areas (my crispy lips thank you!)
All the Glo Minerals products are paraben, dye and parfum free so you don’t need to worry about nasties on your skin!
Next, a Glo Minerals eyeshadow trio consisting of three densely milled eyeshadows in light lilac pink, shimmery mauve and a frosted mint green. The colour mix sounds horrendous on paper, but I think they work really well once applied.
I would never have bought these colours for myself, but when you see the finished result, I think you’ll be as pleasantly surprised as I was! The eyeshadows are really soft and ultra blendable – I really like how they look.
Finally – my FAVOURITE product of the three! The Glo Minerals Shimmer Brick in Gleam. This is a collection of, essentially, 4 shimmery powders which can be used as highlighter, blusher, finishing powder – whatever you want!
The Shimmer Brick actually reminds me a bit about the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders (which I really really want!) and can be used individually or swirled together.
The bit you’ve all be waiting for!
Here’s the Finished Look
How to get “Pretty In Pink”?
I used all three colours in the Eyeshadow Trio starting with the lightest eyeshadow at the inner corners, blending out to finish with the green at the outside corner.
I contoured cheeks and down the side of my nose using the taupe shade of the Shimmer Brick, before swirling all the colours together to create a glowy blush (a little goes a long way – take care not to overload on the silver toned powder.)
I then added finishing highlights using the gold and silver shimmer powders down the centre of my face.
So there you go – what do you think? Pretty In Pink? If you fancy having a go, you can buy all of these products at Glo Minerals.
