Pretty in Pink

With Valentines Day right around the corner, the main thing on my mind is which pretty products I'll be using come Friday. Despite the fact that I'm going to see Vampire Academy with my best friend instead of going on an actual date, I'm still pretty excited and thought I'd share some of my picks for the perfect and pink Valentines products!

With blushes being my absolute favourite make up product (other than lipsticks, of course), it wasn't hard to choose a few. Nars Orgasm was the first blush that came to mind as despite the excessive amount of hype it receives, it really is a gorgeous colour. Orgasm is a shimmery, slightly peachy pink which gives the most gorgeous glow when applied to the cheeks. Along with Orgasm, MAC's Mineralize Blush in Dainty and Nyx blush in Dusty Rose are perfect pinks to add a splash of colour to the cheeks come Valentines Day.

One of the easiest ways to show some spirit for Valentines Day is to throw on a pink hued lippy. Some of my favourite pinks for the occasion include MAC's Angel and Saint Germain, Topshop's lipstick in Innocent and Strawberry Shortcake from Revlon's Lip Butter range. However, if you're after a more matte finish, I'd definitely recommend the Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams, Istanbul and San Paulo in particular.

If you're not so keen on nail art, plain pink nails are definitely a must on Valentines Day and are also very easy to do. Some of my recommendations include Essie's Fiji, Essie's Secret Story and the Revlon ColorStay polish in Cafe Pink. However if you are keen on nail art, I will hopefully have some Valentines themed nail ideas posted soon!

What do you have planned for Valentines Day?
