So, I stumbled upon Cuberry a while ago when I was reading xsparkage's blog. I liked the swatches and ordered Pink Bikini and Naked Peaches. Pink Bikini is a sweet, vibrant pink and Naked Peaches is like a mix between peach, bronze, pink and gold. Very hard to describe. So I have swatches!

I love these colours. They are very soft but vibrant. Cuberry webstore doesn't have swatches but there is a picture of the product in its container plus a verbal description of the shade. They are pretty accurate, at least these colours are what I meant to order in the first place. Cuberry doesn't offer samples. Sometimes you just have to take the plunge.. But for what it's worth, I would recommend their products.
So I decided to make a look using these colours as my inspiration.
Pink Spring look
Meow Inquisitive Himalayan Pampered Puss foundation
Meow Inquisitive Chausie Concealer (I have a couple of pesky zits on my chin)
Meow A Lick and a Promise lush blush
Cuberry Pink Bikini (all over eyelid)
Cuberry Naked Peaches (on outer vee and crease, almost up to eyebrows)
Coastal Scents 24k gel liner (upper and lower lash line)
Dior Diorshow Waterproof mascara
Makeup Store Zoom lipgloss
Okay, this is how well the colours blend to each other. I love this look, though I say it myself.
I hate it when I find makeup "hints" regarding hair, skin or eye colour. Because according to these hints I shouldn't be attempting to wear pink eye makeup. Because pink doesn't look goos on redheads. [Bleep] it, I think that people should wear colours they feel comfortable in. Okay, I know there are colours that make me look bad and I don't wear them. But in reality, you won't know if something looks good or bad before you try it.
And it seems to bring out the golden specks I have around my pupils. But I find the pink and gold colour combination really flattering for my eyes. It's a bit summery look and I know that summer is still far far away (at least in Finland it is), but I'm getting a bit tired of the 'wintery' look.
What colours are you waiting to get your mitts on this spring (when it eventually comes)? And have you ever had to disagree with the traditional makeup hints?
