We all can collectively agree with the fact that pink is indeed the prettiest colour out there. There is a soothing vibe around it that just calms one down and brings a smile to the face. Also, gone are the days when pink was a colour just for girls. Nowadays, men flaunt pink with panache, and we are here for it. We are going to talk about a trend we have been spotting more and more nowadays, pink eye makeup.  

Best Pink Eye Makeup Looks: The Basics  

Pink makeup on your eyes works well for both day and night events, whether you are at work, heading out for a party, or want to choose eye makeup with pink lehenga. By the way, pink eye makeup is flattering for any eye colour. And with our Indian dark eyes looking good with almost any eye shadow colour, you can experiment with all types of pinks. For now, let’s see what the most popular pink eye looks are. 

Top 7 Pink Eye Makeup Looks

There’s no such thing as too much eye shadow, especially when it comes to pink. Take inspiration from Selena Gomez and add a stunning pop of pink to your eyelids. Extend it up to your brow bone to make your makeup look uber chic.

How to Create the Look  

When using a colour that’s as risqué as pink, make sure to pick a shade that complements your skin tone. Picking a lighter shade will make you look washed out and dark pink, on the other hand, will give you a clownish appearance. Start with using the light pink shade from the Lakmé 9 To 5 Eye Quartet Eyeshadow - Desert Rose as the base as this muted shade goes with pretty much every skin tone. Next, go ahead and apply the coppery shade on the outer corner. Blend it using a fluffy brush to get rid of harsh lines, if any. 

 

2. Pink eyeliner

Go full throttle with a pink eyeliner. Pick a shade of pink colour liner that will bloom to its fullest on your complexion. You can go neon or hot pink if you are close to ebony or go dark and fuchsia if you have pale skin, the point is to have the pink stand out, no matter what spectrum of complexion you belong to.

If you don’t have the right shade of pink eyeliner at hand, you can make a liner using your eye shadows. Just mix the needed shade with a liquid eye primer, then apply it to your eyelid using the brush. We love the Lakmé Absolute Infinity Eye Shadow Palette - Pink Paradise as it has different pink shades, and their highly pigmented textures allow you to experiment with makeup to the fullest.

 

3. Soft Pink Shade

Pink is a great neutral and pastel shade. So if you wish to flaunt your pink side every single day, you can pick these softer, more neutral pink shades that simply perk up your eyes. Pink does not always mean a popping pink or fuchsia.

How to Create the Look 

To create a soft pink eye makeup step by step, you need to prime your eyelids, and then build a shape using a pastel pink shade. You can choose your favourite from the Lakmé Absolute Explore Eye Shadow Palette - Purple Haze has a variety of easy-to-blend and long-lasting pinkish shades. Thoroughly blend the colour on your upper and lower eyelids. Add a soft brown wing, then a lighter shimmery shade to the centre of your upper eyelids, and to the inner eye corners.

 

4. Pink Glitter Eye Makeup

Not a fan of loud colours but have a party to attend? You can steer clear of the dark shades and even the smokey-eye look. Just ensure that you pick up the shade in pearly or shimmery finishes for glitter pink eye makeup. Brownie points if you manage to get your hands on a baked texture that can be used in both dry and wet form.

How to Create the Look  

Use a pearl-finish pink eyeshadow in wet form and watch your pink makeup look come alive. Finish off with dark eyeliner and mascara and rock the dance floor. The Lakmé Absolute Explore Liquid Eye Shadow Duos range has all types of shimmery pinks from a light champagne colour to a smokey copper. And the best part is that it is liquid eyeshadow so you don’t have to worry about any fallout or smudging.

 

5. Pink Barrier Liner

What is a barrier liner? Let us tell you. Maybe you want to try on the bold pink eye with pink eyeliner, for example, to match eye makeup with dark pink dress, but are shy to pull it off. That is when a barrier eyeliner look comes into play. It helps you out in the smoothest ways possible and elevates your pink eyeliner, too. You can create this look not only in pink and black eye makeup shades, but also try pink and gray, pink and brown, or pink and green eye makeup.

How to Create the Look  

As the name suggests, basically you use eyeshadow, pink, pastel, or otherwise and regular eyeliner. First, put on your usual black liner and then apply the pink eyeliner just where the edges of the original eyeliner end. Thus, the first liner serves as a barrier between your lash line and the pink eyeliner, giving you room to play, but helping you ease out the edginess of the bright pink makeup. Cool, eh?

 

6. Nude Pink Shadow

Nude and light pink eye makeup is probably one of the easiest ways to wear pink eye shadow, whether you go to the office or college. You can choose transparent shiny shades that match your underlying skin tone to create this light and refreshing pink and gold eye makeup. 

How to Create the Look  

Apply pink and gold eye shadows to your upper and lower eyelids. You don’t need to work hard on a precise application if you choose light and delicate shades. Just slightly blend the colours for a smooth transition and you’re ready.

Pink smokey eye makeup is a dark look that you can use for special occasions to make your eyes pop. Black, dark brown, or gray shades make the best combinations with pink colour. Blended thoroughly, these shadows will make your eyes look not only brighter but also wider and bigger.  

How to Create the Look  

To create pink smokey eye makeup step by step, apply your pink shadows to the upper and lower eyelids. Contour your eyes with darker shades, and darken the outer corner by creating a soft wing and blending it upwards. Blend your eye contours, too, then apply a highlighter to the inner corner of your eyes, and under your eyebrows.
