SS06 Makeup Trends: Pink

In case you haven't got the memo, mascaras and fake lashes aren't that important anymore. This season is all about the natural look. According to a NYT article a few months back, this season's makeup is all about looking like Gemma Ward. Makeup artists are all loving Gemma's natural look (esp those flushed cheeks!) And although obviously none of us can possibly achieve Gemma's healthy alien look, we can have fun attempting that no-makeup madeup look. Miuccia Prada and her shows' makeup director, Pat McGrath are huge on the pink lips this season. This could mean seriously shocking pink (Prada) and extremely pale pink (Miu Miu.) And in between these two extremes, there are a lot of other shades of pink seen on the SS06 runways:

Pale pink at Miu Miu -although if worn in real life, one might end up looking like a zombie.
Nude-pink at Chloe
Girly pink at J.Mendel -So pretty!
Slightly redish pink at Carolina Herrera and Max Mara
Shocking pink at Prada -V eye-catching and forms a big contrast with pale face.

You will notice that apart from the no-mkaeup madeup look, there is also the no-makeup-except-pink-lipstick look. To be honest, I have no idea how pro makeup artists manage to make models' lips soo pale pink. It can't be just lip stick, because some of the natural red from the lips should still show. Maybe they put on foundation on lips too?

Anyways, MAC has a new collection of lipstick (which I know is a fav to a lot of people), all in pink.

Bobbi Brown Pink Face Palette -Lip colors, blush and eye shadows all in pink. A total no-brainer if you want the natural /pink look.

And lastly, the oh-so-famous Nars blush in Orgasm. I have yet to read a Best Beauty list that didn't have Orgasm in it. It's best used for the subtle flushed look. But it's not very pink so if you're looking for a stronger cheek color, go for solid blush colors. Personally I am using MAC blush in Pinch O' Peach for the natural look.

So make sure you have your healthy-and-flushed face on in the coming summer days!

About the paleness of the lips, I'm pretty sure they do put on foundation. A lot of makeup artists do it. I've tried it, but it felt (and tasted) horrible. Do not try at home :)

these alien models look all the same . brazilians are far prettier and sexier, and i think the nude-pink lips have been around for some time now, its classic.

Nice to hear. I've been trying to pull that off for some time and LOVE it, ever since I got sick of wearing so much eyeliner all the time. I still love my Dior Show or my Maximeyes mascara though!

And I think Lucy's right - I was just reading that in my fav magazine, InStyle. The feel would probably depend on the foundation. I have Tarte's moisturizing concealer and I've used that before and it works well, it's a lighter touch.

I love this trend. Finally, pink is back in. I adore the brown cat eye, but it's good to see a clean look coming around.

Even if you put the best foundation on your lips it'll still fell not really pleasant!

i am obsessed with pale pink lips! I used to use a lipstick by loreal, but they discontinued it. (that was a sad day in Walgreens).

I can't really afford department store makeup. At home I exfoliate my lips with a wet washcloth, apply lip balm or chapstick, and dab a little, and I mean a LITTLE, concealer on my lips with my finger. Your natural lip color comes through, giving you a nice, pale pink.

Thank you for the wonderful effort

إني تذكـرت والذكرى مؤرقـة *مجـداً تلـيدا بأيـدينا أضعـناه

أنَّى اتجهتَ للإسـلام في بـلـدٍ * تجْده كالطيرِ مقصـوصًا جناحـاه

كـم صرفتنا يـدٌ كنـا نـصرفها * وبات يـملكنا شعب مـلكناه

بالله سل خلف بحر الروم عن عرب * بالأمس كانوا هنا واليوم قد تاهوا

وانزل دمشق وسائل صخر مسجدها * عمن بناه لعل الـصخر ينعـاه

هذى معـالم خرس كـل واحـدة * منهن قامت خطيبـا فاغرا فـاه

الله يعلم ما قلبت سـيرتهم يومـا * وأخطـأ دمـع الـعين مـجراه

يا من يرى عمـراتكسوه بردته * الزيت أدمٌ لـه والكـوخ مـأواه

يهتز كسـرى على كرسيه فرقـا * من خوفه ، وملوك الروم تخشـاه

يا رب فابعث لنا من مثلهم نفـرا * يشـيدون لـنا مـجدا أضعنـاه
