Whether it’s a date night or a brunch date with the girls… a pink makeup look is apt for most occasions. They are feminine and oh-so-pretty to look at. Pink pigments are versatile since they flatter most skin tones. The best part is that the colour shows up uniquely different on skin tones that are poles apart. For instance, a peachy eyeshadow will subtly enhance wheatish skin tone but add shock value to dusky skin… looking absolutely stunning on both.
Here are five trendy pink makeup looks that complement every skin tone!
- 01. A hot pink pout
- 02. Peach on lip, lids and cheeks
- 03. Glittery peepers
- 04. Candy chic
- 05. Retro pink wing

What better colour to add drama to your makeup look than hot pink! Keep the rest of your makeup neutral, with slight touches of blush pink on your eyelids and cheeks. But add a sexy shade of hot pink on your lips for a statement-making pout.

Who doesn’t love a peachy glow? It adds freshness to your face and makes you look youthful. You can keep it simple by painting your lips a peachy colour or go OTT like the Riverdale star and rock a peachy monochrome look — don’t forget to play around with textures.

03. Glittery peepers

If you are a fan of the bold eye look, replace your matte shades with heavy-duty glitter shadows. Pick them in shades of pink to pair with all of your pastel outfits. Make sure you are prepping with an eyeshadow primer or glitter glue before applying the glittery formula.
04. Candy chic

Unlike the peachy glow, pick candy-coated pink pigments and go wild with a bold look. Pair this makeup look with all of the stains and oils in your wardrobe for a night of pub-hopping!
05. Retro pink wing

A winged liner is anything but minimal; and when done in coral pink, it is anything but subtle. Replace your intense, sleek black-winged liners with softer pink ones for a retro-glam look you can wear anywhere!
