Accent Colour: Pink

Frequently of late, I've been very lazy with makeup however when I do decide to put on a face I find myself reaching for the accent colour approach. I don't even know if that is a thing but I'm making it a thing here. I am currently in South East Asia (SEA) at the moment and when I travelled from London back home, I broke my journey in Thailand and found myself some handsome purchases!

NARS Cosmetic in SEA, I find, are priced very reasonable and not too far from the USD price. So when I saw it scattered around department stores in Bangkok, I could not resist myself. When I was there, I purchased NARS X Guy Bourdin Blush in Cœur Battant and NARS Satin Lip pencil in Yu. I also picked up a MAC Pro Chromographic Pencil Crayon Multi-Usages in NW25/NC30

I am not a big fan of soft pinks as I find it very difficult to pull off and does not reflect my personality at all. However, if it is bright and bold. I'm all over it. I prepped my skin with a simple base of MUFE Face & Body and Nars Radiant Concealer. Then, I started to softly bronzed my face with Nars Casino and with a light hand apply the Nars Cœur Battant on the highest point my cheekbones in a slant focusing the pigment more on the outer part.

I've been enjoying a minimalist approach to my eye make up frequently of late. It's a simple curl and loading it up with either a lengthening or a volumizing mascara. Today I chose to go for a Natural Volumizing finish with Maxfactor False Lash Effect (waterproof). The best tip I've learnt from a makeup artist (from the Liberty Nars Counter) was to tie a look in by dusting the blush you used on your eye outer 'V' of your crease. And that is exactly what I did in the look above. I finished the look with a light dust of Mac Select Sheer Pressed powder on the T-Zone.

Since learning that great tip from the Nars MUA, I've been more meticulous about items that I buy and trying to create more cohesive looks using one accent colour. This look is so easy to achieve with the brights and I will definitely be sporting this kinda a look for quite a while!
