Makeup Look: Sweet, Bridal Pink

The best thing about Summer is probably the amount of weddings I get to go to.

With the wedding I went to last week, I chose not to go with the bridal colours of fuchsia or purple as these aren't really colours I would choose to wear and I refuse to spend my money on clothes that I have no intention of wearing again (waste of money and valuable wardrobe space) so instead I tried to get my makeup to lean into the colour scheme as best as I could.

Well, don't I look sweet . . . 

I think this is very much a bridal look or has the potential to be as even though I like my makeup to be quite dramatic around the eyes, this is actually very sweet  . . . and pink! I actually didn't realised I owned so much pink-toned makeup until I did this look.
What do you think about this look? Are you as surprised as I am on the amount of pink I've managed to use? I would love some feedback, so please leave a comment below.

I'm going to scrooge around my makeup collection and try to figure out who slipped all this pink in when I wasn't paying attention but Click here for a full list of products.
