Cruelty-free color challenge: Day 3- Pink!

So, as  you read in the title, today’s #crueltyfreecoloroftheday is pink.  Now, when I was little, I loved pink.  My bedrooms were painted pink, I loved pink shoes, pink clothes.  If it was pink, I was on board.  I went to Catholic grammar school, so getting to wear something other than that heinous houndstooth uniform was a thrill.  To this day, I hate houndstooth.  Right before I started school, they switched from this pretty green (or maybe blue?) plaid to the houndstooth horror.  But anyway, I digress.  I loved pink so much that I thought the house around the corner from where my aunt/uncle/cousins lived that was painted pink with burgundy trim was the height of fabulousness.

Once I hit my teens and twenties, I took a break from pink.  But lately, I’m finding my way back to throwing in touches of pink for fun.  Pink jewelry, a touch of pink in the shoes, and, of course, pink makeup.

Now, pink can be somewhat difficult to wear around the eyes without looking like you have the dreaded pink eye.  But, there are ways it can be done.

One way that I like is to go for a monochrome look, which I think can be really classic, and I was very happy with how this one, using muted pinks and mauves, came out.  It ended up being kind of a round up of a number of the products featured in my Sephora sale minihaul.

On the eyes, Hourglass Modernist Eye Palette in Infinity.

Then, Hourglass blush in Mood Exposure.  And the finishing touch, the lovely Tootsi lippie from Colour Pop.
