When I opened up the February issue of Vogue Paris, the “Rose d’Hiver” editorial (above) was the first one that struck me–baby pink can be a bit too girly for me–I veer towards black, white, blue and navy regularly (all neutral, I know)–but the contrast of the natural, clean hair and makeup with the cool baby pink looks fresh (less Malibu Barbie) for Spring.
All shades of blush and rose have found their way onto the runway and have infiltrated all the spring lines of makeup–whether with undertones of purple or apricot, flecks of gold and silver, shades range from the palest whispers of pink to the neon bright lipstick release from Chanel in La Diva.
Although we’ve been beaten by a few polar vortexes and the snow just won’t quit, we can mix in some pink for a breath of fresh air among the sea of black and navy.

Dior was influenced by Versailles for their Trianon collection, and have released a range of the girliest of pastels in limited edition packaging that evokes the beautiful patisseries that Marie Antoinette herself would have eaten at her country hideaway, the Trianon.
All of the items in MAC’s Fantasy of Flowers range are named after flowers, making up the prettiest bouquet of colours. With Diptyque’s Eau Rose body lotion, you will smell like the queen of the flowers.
