I don’t like pink in anything but makeup. And I LOVE pink in makeup, especially cool-toned pinks. I also love roses, so the fact that the Spring 2014 Givenchy collection is called Over Rose, and is all about pink makes me uber happy.
In fact, this is definitely among my favourite Spring collections.
I love how Nicolas Degennes, Make-Up and Colour Artistic Director Givenchy, is describing it:
“Removed from a certain naiveté with which it is often associated, pink is a subtle colour that delivers multiple messages. Gourmand, it is as enchanting as a river of strawberry cordial. Pink candyfloss from childhood. Romantic, it is draped in poetry and tenderness. Sensual and excessive, it blossoms in extreme femininity.”
Sounds really beautiful, and looks gorgeous [the collection], too.

Nine pretty pink shades for lips and cheeks: Passionate, Loving ,Youthful, Romantic, Tender, Childlike, Aphrodisiac, Sentimental, Dreamer. This looks like the product of this Spring.

I personally really love lilac and rose shades in makeup (and only in makeup), as they help to create a youthful and fresh look. Such shades are amazing for Spring, so the new Bobbi Brown’s Lilac Rose collection is just spot on.

Although I am not a fan of pink and girly style, I am totally loving this promo for Laura Mercier’s Arabesque Spring 2013 makeup collection.
It is very soft and feminine and, according to the brand, was inspired by by the spirit of light and movement. “From the sweet nuance of a ballerina to the fluid moves of yoga and dance.”
Soft pinks, lilacs, blues and neutrals look very refreshing and flattering, especially after the winter season.
Let’s take a look at the collection!

Dior’s Spring 2013 makeup collection created by Tyen is called Cherry Bow and it’s all about bows and feminine shades, especially pink. It is a homage to the ribbons worn by the Duchesse de Fontanges. Christian Dior also thought that pink was “the softest of colours”, the colour “of happiness and femininity”.
I really like the promo image with Daria Strokous, even though it is not my personal style. She looks very fresh and girly, perfect combo for Spring, if you ask me.
