Paint October pink

Whether it be a parent, family member, partner, friend or a friend of a friend, someone we know has suffered from Cancer. With October marking Breast Cancer awareness month (I know the month is almost over, but better late than never), people and businesses are coming up with ways to support the cause. Many brands have created campaigns to create awareness and donate proceeds to organisations such as CANSA.

There are various ways in which you can support and paint October pink by simply wearing a pouty pink lipstick, purchasing a pink ribbon or donating R20 by smsing the word PinkDrive to 40158.

Here are a few beauty brands doing their bit for the cause:

ghd V coral styler


For every limited edition V coral styler gift set sold (R2499 – available at salons), ghd will donate R100 to CANSA.

Great Lengths – pink hair shows you care


Great Lengths will donate the profit from the sales of their pink 100% human hair extensions (R100) for the month of October to CANSA. Available at Great Lengths partner salons.

Join the cause by purchasing the Estée Lauder limited edition Advanced Night Repair or the limited edition Evelyn Lauder and Elizabeth Hurley Dream Pink Collection. Available at Edgars stores. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Look Good Feel Better, which helps women facing the trauma of cancer in a practical and positive way.

In the spirit of pink here are a few pink beauty must-haves I am loving at the moment:

This nude pink shade is the perfect everday lipstick. The creamy texture feels moisturising on the lips while providing a slight sheen.

Gelish Soak-off Gel Polish – Gossip Girl and High Voltage (price varies – available at salons)


Paint all your nails except your ring finger in bright pink Gossip Girl. Then add a touch of glitz by painting your ring finger in High Voltage. Gorg!
