October is the Pink month or Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I personally do not know anyone who had or has breast cancer but I am fully aware that it is a battle many women are fighting everyday. It is a tumor that grows in the breast that happens almost entirely in women. It has taken many people's lives and it is something we should all take seriously. There is no cure yet but we can all show our support by making a donation for the breast cancer research foundation dedicated to breast cancer prevention and finding a cure.
Here are some companies that supports the fight against Breast Cancer.
Ann Taylor offers the Ann Cares card where you can purchase it for $25 and get 20 to 25% off on your entire purcase of $100 or more. 90% off the card purchase will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research. You can donate and save money at the same time. It's a win-win situation. Visit anntaylor.com for more info
Estee Lauder created a Pink Ribbon Collection 2010. $500,000 will be donated to the breast cancer research foundation. You will surely feel good when you purchase one of their collection. You will look fab in your new pink lipstick or lipgloss and you are helping a good cause at the same time.
Jeweled Pink Ribbin pin $12.00
Elizabeth Hurley Lip Design Collection $25.00
Evelyn Lauder Lip Design Collection $25.00
...and here is a Soft Pink and Brown makeup look that I created dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It's a soft and neutral look with hints of pink in the eyes, cheeks and lips. It's a pretty and easy look to achieve. You can watch the makeup tutorial at the end of this post to learn how I did this look.
-Benefit Eye Bright pencil
-Sonia Kashuk gel liner in Ebony
-Maybelline Falsies mascara
-Smashbox Double Exposure lip/cheek color in Irresistible
Once again, I used my current fav nude lipstick Rimmel London Moisture Renew lipstick in Spotlight Beige
