Back when I was a teenager, a bubblegum pink lip was my go-to. Especially if it ‘chalked’ out my lips a little – oh those were the days right!? These days, I still enjoy a pink lip, but I tend to lean towards the more muted slightly brown-toned ones. As I assume most of us do.
I recently got a new top from Missguided, which isn’t really the point of this post, but when I put it on the pale pink stripes got me inspired and I immediately went for my old favourite lipstick from Collection. It’s neon bubblegum pink but I think I made it very wearable in this look, pairing it with a super bronzed, natural look.
I absolutely love how this turned out, I think it’s perfect for those bright sunshiny days and I’ll definitely be reaching more towards the true toned pinks for future looks too! I’d love to know what your favourite pink lipstick is, be it muted, rose-toned or neon, so be sure to let me know in the comments below.

I just love your eye makeup from this post tbh. I have blue eyes too, and orange (being blue’s complimentary color) just makes our eyes pop lol. Orange is definitely my go-to shade for eyes
