Think Pink

I don't "do" beauty. Well... didn't do beauty... Let's just say I've never been any good at makeup application as a whole!

Don't get me wrong, I can fill in a mean arched brow and apply the hell out of some liquid matte lipstick because that shit doesn't move even if you want it to, but thats really the extent of my makeup knowledge to date. I grew up a diehard tomboy – with a bold unibrow and the aggressive peach fuzz to match – so the concept of makeup really didn't occur to me until I hit my 20's.

I don't even think I owned a set of makeup brushes up until last year! If it couldn't be applied with my fingers or a q-tip, it was too much for me to handle and I kept it moving. Hilarious, right? Well, imagine my surprise when Dalish Cosmetics asked me to be one of their 2016 brand ambassadors. I turn 25 this year, so I figured it was time to branch out, broaden my horizons and have some fun with all things makeup related, and what better opportunity to begin this beauty journey, then this!

Dalish is uncomplicated beauty at its finest. They make natural multi-purpose makeup that is rich in anti-oxidants and locally sourced. Their Silk-to-Matte Foundation is so light it feels like it's "barely there" but it still manages to have amazing coverage. I use it to conceal dark under eye circles, without any cakey fuss. They're looking to expand their colours in the future and I for one cannot wait for that to happen because I'm in love with the formula and will be using it for all things skin related! They also make this Matte Lipstick that comes in a handful of wearable shades that are insanely pigmented! I went ahead and used this pink on my lips, but again as a creme shadow along the lower lash line... lipstick as shadow? Serious game changer, people! I finished the look off with some Gloss, mascara and casual winged liner for a pink monochrome look. * If you were looking to add some of these versatile, uncomplicated makeup essentials to your beauty routine, head on over to www.dalishcosmetics.com and use promo code FRANCETA to receive a discount on your entire order! xo
