LOVE IT OR HATE IT – PINK HAS ARRIVED AGAIN AND ITS HERE TO STAY!

1435514086561

I can’t deny that the color pink is one of my favorite colors. There are so many variations of it that you are bound to find a color that will lure you in. I love all shades of pink but it has to look right whether its in fashion, makeup or hair color. If its not the right shade or the items don’t look right in this color …I pass!

Years ago, this color was considered a highly feminine color due to its association with girls in general. Pink is a cool, calm, vibrant and at times a sexy color depending on how its presented and also how your eyes visualize it. In some people this color evokes emotions of happiness, calmness, serenity and even promotes senses of peace and tranquility. Its a happy, sexy, trendy color that if played out right screams “buy me, please!” Today its saturated the market so much that its everywhere, even men and boys are wearing pink..I’ll get to that in a few!

 I love the color pink but its got to be presented in a way that would make me want to touch, buy, and wear it. If it looks horrid to me I will never even think to take a second look at it. As for men, a man that braves wearing pink to me is sexy. I’ve seen it on male models and boy do they look amazing in this color. I guess its obvious that for me pink is the go-to color  but for others it may be the most repulsive, silly, feminine color they have ever laid their eyes on. I don’t blame you ..to each his own. Its not a color thats for everyone and I highly respect that!

Lets look at a few ways that the color pink is represented in general from the pale pink for men and the bright pink hues for women. I’ll let you be the judge and see if its your most or least favorite color thus far! Check out the pics below…

I’m a huge makeup lover but its not my favorite color in this area. Most colors or shades of pink do not look great on me – I have a few that look amazing but I wish I could wear them in all shades and variations. I tend to pass on some pink shades of makeup because they make my face look washed out. Kudos to you if you can pull it off

COLOR BECOMES ME: MY OBSESSION WITH MAKEUP!

neon-beauty-tips

Its all started when I was 12, color was everything to me. I can remember in school when my teacher would ask the class what colors we would like in folders or writing notebooks and I was always the odd ball. The kids in the class would pick beautiful pinks, red, blues, or purple and I was the only girl in class to pick yellow, orange, green or some whacky tacky color like that. I didn’t care, I was expressing my love for unconventional colors that most girls my age would have never picked to be their fave at the time. Was I an oddball or was it the start of something seriously obsessive?

Lets go back to when I remember it all started for me. Being 12 and living in NYC, I was constantly around color, makeup, and trendy stylish people. My first encounter with makeup was when I was allowed by my mother to wear colored lipgloss. Yeah, I considered that makeup and it made me feel all grown up and ladylike. I was so happy to have been allowed to wear it because it was the start of something big for me. As the years went by I experimented with more vibrant colors (I won’t post pics because I want to save myself the embarrassment) that I thought would look amazing on me. At the age of 17, I remember buying this beautiful blue Maybelline eyeshadow (haven’t seen that color since) – hey I thought It was going to bring out my light brown eyes. Needless to say, It was an awful choice and I was made fun of by other girls in high school because they thought it looked horrible on me and did nothing but make me look like a clown. Could it have been jealousy or was it really that bad? I’m really not sure but I loved that eyeshadow and I believed at the time that it looked beautiful on me. So I decided to experiment with more colors in makeup over the years – this is the beginning of my obsession with all things color and cosmetics.

My childhood lip glosses looked like these. I thought I was grown with my new found glossy lips!

My first eyeshadow was almost similar to this color and I was so in love with it. Haven’t see that exact same color in years.

Today I can truly say I’m a true makeup junkie, I collect makeup like I collect shoes, scarves, and handbags. Today’s makeup is nothing like the makeup from years ago. Nowadays you can find every and any color you are searching for versus ages ago where you only had the basic colors. There are so many brands/color varieties that its saturated the market and you almost need a makeup allowance to keep up with it all. Uhh Ohh, I think I gave myself an idea..Sephora and Ulta are already loving me.

Eyeshadows in various colors…need a color I probably have it. This is only a portion of my collection!

Color is important but the patterns or the way they are presented to me are important also. Heres why – A while back, I went with a friend on a shopping trip and walked into the Vera Bradley store and boy were my eyes in for a shock. I mean I love color but jeez I felt like I had walked into the 70’s. I’m sorry, I know that there are those that love the Vera Bradley brand but her colorful merchandise really doesn’t appeal to me. I can never find a color pattern that I like in her items, although I did see a beautiful towel that was amazing and I need to go back and purchase it before I never see it again. Thats a first of me ever liking one of her items, the colors never seem to be right for me and they do not seem to go together…and those swirls and flowers Uggghhh! I will stop at that thought for now before I put my foot in my mouth LOL.

I love color but this is insane!

 I woite this blog post because of an epiphany while leaving the Ulta store. I walked in with the idea of taking advantage of a sale and walked out with a hundred dollars worth of makeup. What happened? Well I was asked by one of the ladies that worked there if I needed help and was given one of their complimentary makeovers and thats what did me in. Don’t get me wrong I love complimentary makeovers and I loved the way it looked on me. It gave me a dewy look and I was sold. I walked out with every item she applied on my face plus a few more non makeup items.  Did I need it, No! Did I want it, Yes! Heck, it made me look beautiful and thats what had me sold. Will I ever get tired of makeup, color patterns, and the beauty of it all? I probably will not and will continue to enjoy it for as long as I can. Its in me or should I say it becomes me and we become one.

As you can see here’s my problem, how can I walk into this store and not wanna buy everything….Ughh!

Oh Ulta, I’m obsessed with you!

My Ulta Purchase..plus that free glittery cute bag, love it!

Makeup for me is at times obsessive, expensive, and color crazy but I love it. Hey, how can you not love looking and feeling beautiful. Ladies do I really need help and is there any other female that can relate to my epiphany?
