For those of you who think pink is a confection of your childhood (light-as-meringue tutus, plastic Barbie heels, sugary sweets), think again. The color that dominated your dollhouse can now be a staple in your makeup bag―in the form of eye shadows, blushes, lipsticks, and nail polish. “Pink instantly lifts and brightens any skin tone,” says makeup artist Bobbi Brown. You can either apply it subtly in places or go strong and play up one feature. Here you’ll learn doable, wearable looks and find the right shades for you. Meet pink at its best: pretty, practical, and all grown-up.
1. Eyeshadow Shades: Pink is a really cool makeup shade for your eyelids. In fact you use it all the time. You just don’t notice it because you not consciously highlighting it. We usually use pink as a tint because it is too loud color for daily wear.
2. Shading Pink: It is important to use a combination of pinks instead of flat bubblegum pink for for your eyes. Your eye makeup ideas are important because that will be the focus of your face. Try a base of flesh tone pink or peach layered with a brighter shade like Barbie pink. This combination will bring depth to your eyes because normally pink is a pretty flat color.
3. Pink Contours: Another great eye makeup idea is to use a pink liner as a highlighting line on your lower lid. If you have kept your eyeshadow basic then you can highlight eyes by drawing a thin line of pink over the lower lash line. It will go best if you have used a bit of white eye liner too.
4. Which Shade Of Pink: Whether you look like a circus tent or suavely charismatic depends on your choice of shade. Some shades of pink like the natural lip color or the reddish pink closer to magenta can give you a very sophisticated look. But if you go for baby diaper pink then you god save you. Not everybody is Baby Spice to carry that off!
5. Pink Cheeks: Pink makeup for your cheeks is not such a big deal for V Day or no Valentine’s day. It is one the basic makeup shades you use on a daily basis. People hardly put green rouge on their cheeks. It is usually the reds, the pinks and the browns. But the key is to not overdo your cheeks when you are using a bright color like pink on the rest of your face. Don’t make it look like pancake makeup.
6. Pink Lips: Choose a decent shade for your lips and always balance it out. If you have used bright pink for your eyes then your lips should be simple. You can also use a dark pink lip liner and fill up your lips with a neutral color.
