October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and although we are near the end of the month, I believe it’s never too late to show support for the cause. After all, breast cancer doesn’t only happen during one month of the year – it happens all year, every year, to people all over the world.
As women, most of us have probably been affected by this disease – whether directly or indirectly – and for those of us who haven’t, there is still a chance we could be. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women. It’s a scary fact, which is why we need to continue building awareness. The easiest way to do so?
Lucky for me, pink is my favourite colour and I love to wear it on my lips. For this look I kept the eyes pretty simple. I used Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper to create a thick line with an exaggerated wing. I really wanted the focus to be on my bright pucker.
I like to think of myself as a “mixologist” with my makeup, combining different colours to create my own unique shade. I combined two lip products from Revlon to create my absolute favourite pink lip.
First I applied Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain in Sweetheart, a bright magenta colour. Over that I used Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Showy, a cool-toned, bubblegum pink that reminds me of something Barbie would wear. This colour is great for anyone with a lighter skin complexion.

Both of these products are really moisturizing and comfortable to wear. Applying the stain first ensures that my lips will hold colour throughout the day.
Now I dare you to GO PINK with me and wear your favourite pink lip colour. Bust it out and wear it for all to see! When you walk into your office and someone compliments you on your eye-catching lips, you can say, “I’m wearing it in support of Breast Cancer.” Now that’s a conversation starter!
