Pretty Pretty Pinterest

My name is Breanna, and I am addicted to Pinterest. I can readily admit that my addiction has only increased worsened over time. Pinning has become even more of a time sucker for me than Facebook. I, like many of you, find so many inspiring images, ideas, DIY projects, recipes, the list is endless. The subject of beauty, and all things makeup related, is still one of my favorites to search. To that end, I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite and inspirational makeup images and include some key products to help you achieve the look.

I love this fresh and flushed makeup look. There is something so youthful about it. Try NARS The Multiple in Portofino on both lips and cheeks for a coral, sheer and natural finish.

This makeup is decidedly vintage, but it is on trend for fall and winter. Take the Sin shadow from your Urban Decay Naked Palette and apply to the lids for the soft, gilded effect and finish with a coat of The Lipstick Queen Sinner Lipstick in Berry for the deep, rich raspberry chocolate pout.

Use Stila Eyeshadow in Coco for a sexy, smoky look that is particularly fetching on those with light colored eyes. Complete the look with Stila Long Wear Lip Color in Adorable for a complimentary nude and innocent lip.

This is a nod to mod without being too retro and I love it. Perfect for a date night with your beau or your girls. NARS Eyeshadow in Tibet up to the crease, topped with a flick of NARS Eyeliner Stylo in Nuits Blanches ties it all together.

Moisturized, radiant skin will always be in style, reach for the iconic and incomparable Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF20 in Caramel to smooth things over and end with a coat of fresh peach eye catching gloss, like Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Bellini.

I will never get tired of beautiful, beachy waves and find myself pinning different incarnations constantly. A personal favorite product of mine for creating imperfect waves, and professional recommendation from my hair stylists, is ORIBE Apres Beach Wave and Shine Spray. Try Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick in Tannin for a timeless red kisser.

The pairing of a brown smoky eye and nude glossy lip is a look I recreate on clients (and myself) again and again. This particular pin is very popular on my “Stealing Beauty” board, with 253 repins and 47 likes. To attain the look try Dior Addict Ultra Gloss in Lace Beige, at least two coats of Dior Diorshow Blackout Waterproof Mascara, and even out and perfect skin tone with Dior Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup SPF10 in Sand.

This look is intense in its editorial appeal, but you can definitely glean everyday inspiration from it. An opal highlighted cheekbone with NARS The Multiple in Copacabana  and NARS Eyeshadow in Party Monster  applied dry for a softer effect and wet for a more daring look. Purple eye shadow is one of those must have shades that accentuates every eye color.

Which makeup pin is your favorite? Has Pinterest changed your makeup game?
