Glo Minerals | Pretty In Pink

Hello My Lovelies,

I hope you are all doing well! I am officially on Easter break but unfortunately i won't be having a break due to writing the remaining chapters of my dissertation haha. Ohh the joys of student life! So what better way to procrastinate than write a blog post?! 

I was recently challenged by Glow Minerals to take a photo of myself using the Glo Minerals makeup range to look 'pretty in pink'. I received three amazing products from the range and really enjoyed having a play with them and discovering how i like to use them best on myself. If you do like the look that i created then pretty please feel free to vote for my look on the Glo Minerals Facebook page. If not, you should still head on over and take a peek at the brand and some of the other bloggers who have entered the challenge too! If i am lucky enough to win, i will be given three Glo Minerals goodie bags worth £100 to giveaway to my followers. I believe the competition is not live yet, as soon as it is i will let you all know! Yet again i have gone a little picture crazy but i hope you enjoy the post!

After feasting my eyes on the products i literally fell in love with all of the pink hues. I first started off with the Eyeshadow Trio in Ballerina and used the lightest pink shade in the trio to add a wash of colour across my entire eye lid with a flat shader brush. I then grabbed a fluffy crease brush and added some of the second darker pink shade and started to define my crease slightly for some definition. I then grabbed a small amount of the green shade and added that over the crease shade to add a little more definition but it was very subtle as you can see from the pictures. The eyeshadows were very creamy and buttery soft to apply without any fall out. I love how they left a gorgeous natural pink glow to my eyes and i would love to try more from the range. 

I then left my eyes for the moment and moved on to my face. I think the Shimmer Brick in Gleam was one of my favourite products out of the three. I am a huge highlighter fan and these four shades were absolutely gorgeous and extremely pigmented. I first took a mixture of the two pink shades and applied them to the apples of my cheeks and swept them upwards slightly to blend them together. I then took a mixture of the gold and shimmery white shade and used a smaller face brush and focused that on the top of my cheek bones for a more prominent highlight. Using the four shades combined really left my skin looking extremely healthy and glowing…which is fabulous! As the white highlight shade is very pigmented, i took a small eyeshadow brush and added a small amount to the inner corners of my eyes and also on my brow bone for a highlight…i think this really finished the shadows off on the eyes.  I then applied a thin winged liner as i personally like how it looks on my eye shape and then a few coats of my favourite mascara. I will definitely be taking this fabulous shimmer brick on vacation with me this year, i think with a tan it would make me look even more glowing haha! 

Then finally, as a finishing touch i used their Lipstick in Pink Sugar which left a natural frosty light pink shade to my lips which really helped pull the rest of the look together. Pink lip shades are my absolutely favourites and this has now become and new favourite in my collection. 

I hope you all enjoyed this post and i hope you liked the look i created. If you do then pretty please head on over to the Glo Minerals Facebook page and give my photo a like, i would really appreciate it. I would love to know you thoughts on the makeup and if you have tried any of the line before. If you would like to know what other makeup products i used in this makeup look then let me know!
