Millennial pink has no doubt infiltrated your Instagram feed c/o Glossier’s aspirational yet accessible branding. At TOMBOY Beauty we are here for the trend and our approach, like most things, is feminine ease mixed with masculine edge. Secondary, to the tonal makeup theme, with our offices split between  New York and Sydney we’re noticing the global seasons more than ever, and how a shift from one temperature to another can become a bit of a clusterfuck when it comes to serviceable content re: beauty by seasons. We are bored of bronzes for summer and wine-toned hues for winter, we know you know you need to switch out your lightweight moisturiser for a heavier one in winter etc. So what you see here can be tailored to your geotag.

Tonal makeup is hardly groundbreaking, florals for spring? Anyone? But pink is a complete look. Perhaps you decide to go against the grain, you rebel, you and sport the pale-pink eye for winter, which would likely be appropriate, considering Sydney winter temps drop to a shocking, arctic total of 10 degrees Celsius, give or take. Similarly, a deeper lip and a flushed cheek works exactly how it is presented, to carry you through balmy rooftop nights, or accompanied by a chunky knit for settling in with a glass of vino and a large bowl of pasta.

This story should be seen as a guide in the right direction, see: deep peachy-pink tones instead of fuschia and either look, either season, these looks will keep you looking/feeling alive this summer or winter.
