If we had to pick a single shade that’s having a moment in makeup right now, it would be pink. The skin-brightening hue is also incredibly versatile. Try a subtle touch of rose on your cheeks and lips—or rock it as a statement color on your lids. Come on, we’ll show you the way.
7 Pink Makeup Looks to Try This Summer
1. Petal Pink Blush
Dip your toe (or more literally, your makeup brush) into the shade by applying a soft veil of a petal pink blush to your cheeks. Finish the look with a lipstick in a similar shade.
2. Neon Pink Eyes
Or you could go neutral everywhere else and let your eyes do the talking with a bold swipe of neon pink shadow across your lids. (Tip: This would be a good time to try the Chapstick hack from TikTok.)
3. Soft Pink Shadow
Rethink a classic smokey eye by swapping your usual brown and taupe shades for a wash of berry-toned shadows instead. Just make sure to add a swipe (or two) of mascara to frame your eyes.
4. Shiny Pink Lips
This brings back memories of slathering on Juicy Tube lip gloss in-between classes (and we’re not mad about it). Pro tip: Opt for a cool-toned pink (like a soft mauve or fuchsia) to make your teeth appear whiter.
5. Pink Smokey Eye
Remember what we said about trying a pink smokey eye? If you weren’t convinced yet, may this sultry version by French makeup artist Violette change your mind.
6. Pink And Red Combo
After a year of lockdown, things have finally started to open back up again. And what better way to celebrate seeing your friends than with a bit of glam (and a glass of rose perhaps)?
7. Dewy Rose
If your face looks a little sallow or dull after a sleepless night, a hint of pink on your cheeks and lips will brighten things up quickly. Just make sure to stick to creamy formulas over powders; the subtle sheen adds a welcome glow.
