You may still be bundling up in sweaters, coats and tights while you count down till the first signs of spring, but there’s no quicker way to usher in the changing seasons than embracing pops of color in your makeup routine. Pink makeup looks are especially fresh and pretty for spring, whether you opt for neon and graphic shades or go for the pastel variety. Below, we rounded up 20 on-trend pink makeup looks that work for any style.

Trending Pink Makeup Looks to Try This Spring

Pink Inner Corners

Brighten up your inner corners by applying a pink eyeshadow with a small pencil brush. We love the Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow in Floored, a deep metallic pink. 

Monochromatic Pink Makeup

The next time you’re staring at your makeup collection, wondering what kind of look to create, give monochromatic makeup a try. It’s easy to replicate with any color, but we can’t get enough of the flushed, cool-girl vibes of an all-pink look.

Bright Pink Lips

Neutral makeup looks fresh and spring-ready when paired with a juicy pink lip. For a bright, glossy lip color similar to the one Jazzi Manalo is rocking here, we recommend the YSL Beauty Rouge Volupté Candy Glaze Lip Gloss Stick in Pink Satisfaction.

Soft Pink Lids and Lips

A blur of matte pink eyeshadow looks understated and pretty when paired with a classic black wing. Go neutral on the lips with a rosy brown lip liner and gloss combo, like the NYX Professional Makeup Line Loud Vegan Longwear Lip Liner in Trophy Life and the Fat Oil Lip Drip in Missed Call.

Pink Highlighter

Dewy, glossy skin is a spring staple, but holographic pink highlighter gives it an unexpected twist. After tapping on a pink cream blush (try the Maybelline New York Cheek Heat Gel-Cream Blush in Pink Scorch or Rose Flush), apply an opalescent highlighter on top. The Danessa Myricks Beauty Vision Flush Glow in Femme offers an eye-catching pink reflect.

Graphic Pink Eyeshadow

For pink eyeshadow that skews more punk than classically pretty, go for a bright, metallic shade and lots of graphic black eyeliner. This is the perfect pink makeup look for a fun night out as the weather gets warmer.

Sunset Pink Eyes and Lips

Blend the pink and orange shades from the NYX Professional Makeup Ultimate Color Palette in Brights through the crease and along the lower lash line for a sunset-inspired take on a smoky eye.

Pink Graphic Eyeliner

Graphic eyeliner is sticking around for another season, and we couldn’t be more excited to fine-tune our drawing skills. Tip: For crisp, clean lines, clean up the edges of your eyeliner with a cotton swab dipped in micellar water.

Baby Pink Lids

Bubblegum pink shadow on the inner and outer corners of the eye paired with a sheer glitter in the center of the lid looks positively angelic. Leave the drama to the lashes with multiple coats of the Maybelline New York Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara.

Pink Under-Eyes

Petal pink powder under the eyes is one of our favorite trends to sweep BeautyTok lately. It 

brightens up the under-eye area and adds some romance to full glam makeup looks.

Berry Pink Lids

Bright, metallic pink eyeshadows look electric, especially against dark skin tones. For an extra dose of sparkle, add a few face gems along the brow bone.

Shimmery Pink Eyes

Add a subtle pink shimmer to your lids with a metallic liquid eyeshadow. The Giorgio Armani Beauty Eye Tint Long-Lasting Liquid Eyeshadow in Blush is our go-to for a reflective and long-lasting finish.

Pink Cut Crease

Channel the ’60s with this graphic pink cut crease. The NYX Professional Makeup Vivid Brights Colored Liquid Eyeliner in Sneaky Pink is perfect for drawing on this colorful liner look.

Blurred Pink Lips

For a popsicle-stained effect, dab on a bright pink lipstick with your finger, focusing the majority of the color on the inner part of your lips and gently feathering outwards. Don’t worry about being too precise — part of this look’s appeal is its easy, undone vibe. For a vibrant pink that lasts all day, reach for the L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Intense Volume Matte Lipstick in Le Rose Activist.

Matte Pink Makeup

Matte makeup and velvet skin are dominating our feeds this spring. Keep shine to a minimum with a powder foundation, like the Maybelline New York SuperStay Up to 24HR Hybrid Powder-Foundation

Pink Reverse Cat-Eye

A reverse cat-eye complements sugary pink blush and eyeshadow. To nail the look, you’ll need an easy-to-blend black eyeliner pencil, like the Lancôme Drama Liqui-Pencil Dramatic Eyeliner in Café Noir.

Sculpted Pink Cheeks

For cheekbones that look high and defined, try placing your blush at the tops of your cheekbones and contouring underneath the color. Right now, we’re falling for cool-toned bubblegum pink shades like the Patrick Ta Major Beauty Headlines - Double-Take Créme & Powder Blush in She’s a Doll.

Two-Tone Eyes

This strawberry lemonade-inspired look is equal parts edgy and adorable. For a flash of pink liner, try the Maybelline New York Tattoo Studio Long-Lasting Sharpenable Eyeliner Pencil in Ultra Pink.

Pink Lids and Red Lips

This candy-colored combo is sure to turn heads. Pair a matte pink eyeshadow with a matte red lipstick, like the Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in 714

Metallic Pink Lips

Emphasize your lips with a party-ready, metallic fuchsia. For opaque color payoff in a single swipe, apply the Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Drama Ink Semi-Matte Liquid Lipstick in Fiery Pink.
