Think Pink: Breast Cancer Awareness Makeup Musts

By  October 11, 2012

We’ve always loved the color pink, but this month we’re taking our appreciation of the punchy hue to the next level. Breast Cancer Awareness is giving us an even better reason to make ourselves up in the prettiest shade we can think of. There’s an endless array of makeup specials coming from our favorite beauty brands in support of the cause. These October offerings will donate to a charity, making it simple, trendy, and beautiful to contribute in the fight against breast cancer. Where good causes are concerned, whoever said bright, juicy lips and hot pink cheeks were strictly a summer staple – these peppy pink products will perk us up, but look and feel sophisticated.
