Face Friday: Paint It Pink

pink-thIt’s October, and that means it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Specifically today, the Irish Cancer Society are asking people, men and women to Paint It Pink and paint Ireland pink through social media, raising awareness of Breast Cancer. As I am sure it has affected many of us, both directly and indirectly, it would be a shame not to take part, so I painted my usual Face Friday post pink, with these results…





  • Foundation: Max Factor – Skin Luminizer Foundation (40 – Light Ivory)
  • Blush: Benefit – Benetint
  • Powder: Maybelline – Fit Me Powder (125 – Nude Beige)
  • Concealer: Benefit – FakeUp (01 – Light)


  • Brows: NYX – Eyebrow Cake Powder (04 – Auburn/Red)
  • Primer: MUA – Pro Base Eye Primer
  • Shadow: MUA – Stargazer Palette (Shade 2)
  • Shadow: Natural Collection – Shadow Single (Sea Shell)

Pink Eyes, Pink Cheeks and Pink Lips (I was missing a pink foundation or face paint). I do of course encourage EVERYONE to get involved, both today and throughout all of October! If you haven’t yet painted it pink today I would encourage you to get to it and paint your nails, your face, your house, your husband, your brother, your boyfriend, your father (in law) or your cat (maybe not the last one) PINK! Post the picture on social media under the hashtag #PINKPICS and text PINK to 50300 to donate €4. Hopefully through awareness and support posts like this will no longer be required, but until then, please do try and get involved!
