As everyone knows,this month is breast cancer awareness month and October 27th is The International Pink Ribbon Day.
Breast cancer is something that can happen to everyone and the least we can do is to provide awareness to the ones we love. For this purpose, we have decided to start a #Pinktober tag post for bloggers.For a blogger, their most precious ones are their readers and although we love to talk about makeup,beauty, fashion and all those things that are happy and we love, we should also take some time to consider and talk about something real. That is what this tag is primarily aimed at. The official first post will be posted tomorrow, for now here is a sneak peek of my #PinktoberCollab makeup look.
For more information on this blog post series,read on till the end of this post.
What is #PinktoberCollab?
I feel like the onset
of instagram,twitter and professionalized blogging and the creation of cyber
celebrities has seriously depleted the community feeling of blogs and this will be going on till the end of this month.
Our purpose is to create awareness about breast
cancer and create a sense of community between bloggers like in our earlier times. Although there are movements like thinkbeforeyoupink that talk about raising awareness without doing anything else, there are a lot of women (and girls) in our who know about breast cancer but who thinks that they will not get it.
My idea for the Pinktoberpost, is to do something pink. That falls
within the usual theme of the blog.. I did a pink makeup
look, a fashion blogger could do a pink outfit etc. A food blogger could do a recipe that gives a pink result, like Macaroons,
cake, or something along those lines.
I have already roped in a few bloggers for this tag and they are in the works for their posts. I will provide links to the tagged bloggers in the second post so that you can check them all out and subscribe to see their posts. If you are a blogger and would like to be a part of this tag, do shoot me a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or message me on facebook HERE.
Oh, and for those who want to know about this look,I did it using the coastal scents 88 palette and KKCenterHK White face paint mixed with a pink pigment for the ribbon. If you would like to see the tutorial for this look, tune in tomorrow.
