Cabaret Anyone?

The second Pantone colour I’m writing about is called Cabaret, A lovely rose- violet colour that looks sensational on lips and cheeks. My picks for Cabaret are they CrushCosmetics mineral blusher in French kiss. Though this blush looks bright it goes on with just a hint of colour so it’s completely buildable and with the low sparkle and medium lustre it gives cheeks a natural flush look. My other choice for lips is the Tarte Lip tint in Lively, This peppermint-infused tint glides on smooth for a rich matte finish that will stay all day and the bold colour great for spring.

Cockatoo Blue

Every season Pantone releases its colour forecast that informs the Cosmetics and Fashion industries among the general public of what trends are in the season.  In honour of the beginning of spring in the fashion world, I wanted to write a series of entries on each chosen colour.  Today I have chosen Cockatoo; this stunning light blue is my favorite choice this spring for make-up.  Smarty Pants (the lighter one) mineral eyeshadow has low sparkle and medium lustre. The soft turquoise blue with a pale green undertones and small amount of silver sparkle is excellent for smokey eyes  for a pop of colour. The Other colour shown is Femme Fatale if your looking for a stronger look this one definitely packs a punch.
