A Summer of sweet frosted colour sweeps across cheeks and lips. Pull out the gentle pastels, give them a modern edge and welcome your inner girl.
My inspiration of ballerinas and baby-dolls, blushing and pretty.  I think its time to re-think pinks, work it with a hard edge finish, with lashings of mascara and a strong eyeliner.

Achieve this look, think feminine and pretty with a grown-up twist.
As most of the focus is on the eyes, keep the rest of the face very minimal with a soft dusting of natural pastel pinks. on cheeks and lips.
Blending is the key to wearing pink in the right way. For dazzling eyes avoid taking pink eyeshadow much higher than the crease line of the eyelid. For a bold look, blend a darker pink from the outer corner of the eyelid in towards the middle. Add a white shade to the inner-corner of the eye to widen the eye shape. For a perfect finish apply flirty, false lashes.

My Key products for this look:
* MAC Studio Moisture tint SPF15 in medium.
* La Mer the treatment powder foundation.
* Clinique Glosswear in Whisper.
* Max Factor False lash effect mascara.
