Bright Cheeks, Pink Lips FOTD (using Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss in Imaginaire)

Hi everyone, for today's FOTD I focused mainly on the cheeks. It's miserable and cold outside, so I chose to use a cheerful peachy-pink shade of blush to brighten things up.

My blusher of choice is Illamasqua's Temble. It's a gorgeous bright colour. Like all Illamasqua's blush, it's heavily pigmented so I have to be careful not to have too heavy handed application.

I kept the eyes simple using black eyeshadow as liner, topped with a shade of natural brown on the upper eyelids.

On my lips, I used a pale cotton candy pink gloss. I'm loving the new Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss in Imaginaire at the moment.

Products Used


Pail and Joe Moisurizing Foundation Primer, 03

Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Fresh Powder Makeup, 020

Dior Skinflash Radiance Booster Pen, 002 as concealer

Illamasqua Blush, Tremble


17 Eyes, In The Nude

Mac Carbon as Eyeliner

YSL Faux Cils Mascara


Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss, Imaginaire

I don't really suit light pink gloss, as most shades wash out my complexion. The Chanel gloss deosn't seem to though, which is why I love it so much! I would love to try some milky beige coloured lip glosses.
