Girly Pink Blush by Just Pure Minerals

Tuesday was one of those perfect, slightly cool, crisp spring mornings.  I don't know how you approach what makeup or even outfit you decide on for the day, but mine often flows from whatever emotional state I'm in or other environmental influences.  Tuesday felt golden pink, so I went with it :-)
I received a Girly Pink blush sample as part of my last The Natural Beauty Box.  Made by Just Pure Minerals from pure crushed mica and iron oxides, it contains no synthetic dyes or fragrances, no animal by-products, parabens, or bismuth oxychloride.  While loose mineral powders can be a pain in the butt, there is no denying the variety, value, and lovely finishes that can be found there.  Just Pure Mineral blushes are $12 for 6 grams, but samples are available for $1.  Look at the delicate color and shimmer in this! 
On my eyes I blended Maybelline's Color Tattoo in Bold Gold from lash line to crease, and used The All Natural Face's shadow Pink Gold on the inner eye.  I used Urban Decay's Baked 24/7 eyeliner (perhaps my all time favorite liner, now sadly discontinued) on upper and lower lash lines, and then used Bourbon over Baked on the upper lash line to deepen it a bit.  I also used the shadow Honey from stila's In the Garden palette to deepen the crease a bit.
I haven't cut my hair since September, when I cropped it to chin length and it looked like this.  I wasn't wild about the cut, and I'm currently not sure what direction to go in next.  I do have a new stylist to try out, however, so maybe that will get me motivated.
My current hair length and attempt at the tousled, beach hair look.  I read somewhere that 90's grunge hair was featured on fashion runways this spring, so maybe I'll just go with that trend :- )
Disclaimer:  I purchased this.


  1. You are right, your hairstyle is really in this season, kinda like a laid-back tousled chic look :)

    1. Good, I won't worry about finding a new style!
