If there’s one brand that took the colour pink for Spring 2014 seriously, it was RMK. Their whole Spring 2014 collection themed “Play on Pink” is, as the name implies, a play on pink in various forms!
The collection is medium sized with colours for eyes, lips, cheeks, face and nails but there was one item that really caught my eye. Hazard a guess which? Oh go on, guess! 😀
I asked Mr. Yasuhiro Nakamizu, the visiting RMK Global Makeup Artist why the focus on pink which is fine for lips and cheeks, but the eyes? His answer was essentially, that pink is popularly known to be a sweet and fresh colour which is suitable for Spring, hence the focus. Personally, I feel it’s because the Japanese like wearing pink on the eyes, as it goes well with their skintone. It makes them look fresh and sweet.
However, if you have a more sallow or yellow based skintone or even a darker skintone then wearing a light pink is a challenge. I personally can’t wear it without looking like I’ve been crying buckets. However, I recently worked out that I could wear pink if I pair it with brown shadow. It looks quite sweet! But how about paired with gold? Hmm that’d be a challenge wouldn’t it?
Here’s a quick overview of the RMK Play on Pink collection and I’ll tell you which item I had my eye on 😉
