as most of you know or have heard, october is the official month dedicated for breast cancer awareness. i am EXTREMELY fortunate to have not (yet) been personally affected by the disease. none of my close family or friends have been diagnosed, but knowing how common the disease is and how young i am now, i assume there is a high probability that i will eventually run into it in my lifetime. as for now, i feel extremely blessed and grateful i havent had to go through any of the pain or heartache that this sickness can cause.
i try to stay as medically aware as possible (i am a science/health nerd) so i am all for spreading the knowledge. to help spread awareness i have done a simple pink infused FOTD and NOTD to share with you all.
one of my favorite ways to make myself look healthy and fresh is by wearing a bright pink cheek and lip with minimal product on the eyes...
mixture of revlon photoready/neutrogena healthy skin foundation, mac msfn, cargo med matte bronzer, mac posey cream blush, rock&republic blush in x-rated, mac vanilla pigment for highlight.
nyx iced mocha jumbo pencil, mac e/s (brule, cork, brun) mac feline smudged in waterline, prestige my blackest lashes mascara (LOVE this mascara so much)
revlon pink pop gloss, mac like venus dazzleglass
closer look on the lips. usually i would just wear a few swipes of revlon pink pop and be good to go, but i added mac like venus (pink glitter bomb!) for a little something extra.
i love pairing mac posey with rock&republic x-rated. you could use one w/o the other but i really like layering the two for maximum lasting power.
for my nails, i chose a permanent shade from china glaze that was featured in an old trio pack (check out all lacquered up's old post HERE on it) that was meant to help spread awareness. part of the proceeds for this trio went towards susan g komen for the cure. i DO NOT have this trio, i bought this at sallys a couple years ago and apparently this little guy made its way into the single polish rack.
china glaze rich&famous
rich& famous is a pretty hot pink. i did three coats since this polish acted a bit like a jelly. the application was a breeze though and i had no problems with streaking.
hmm i wonder if this shade is similar to opi elephantastic pink?
if you havent noticed, a bunch of us blogging ladies have teamed up to help spread breast cancer awareness through beauty posts. if you missed out on any of the posts, here are the ones that have been already posted:
there are still a few ladies left that need to post so look out for them!
