If you like to coordinate your makeup looks with the seasons, you likely know the recurring trends. Fall and winter are all about rich and moody hues, whereas the summer generally calls for pops of bright colors. And for spring? You can never go wrong with any shade of pink. No matter what your aesthetic is, there’s a way to incorporate pink into your beauty routine this season — whether you’re a minimalist, maximalist or somewhere in between. Check out three of our fave pink makeup tutorials that are perfect for spring, ahead

For the Minimalist

It can be tricky to pull off pink eyeshadow without looking like you have, well, pink eye. But a soft wash of dusty pink, as seen on vlogger Chloe Morello in the tutorial below, just looks fun and feminine, not sickly.

If You’re Somewhere in Between

Earlier this year we shared a gorgeous pink eyeshadow look created by pro makeup artist Jonet Williamson. Now is the perfect time to bring the look back into your rotation, especially if you’d describe your aesthetic as part-maximalist, part-minimalist. Williamson used a mix of warm brown, lavender and blush shades to create a halo effect around the eye. The soft, diffused finish keeps it from being too in-your-face, but the addition of a rhinestone (affixed with lash glue) on the inner corner of each eye takes the look from pretty to head-turning. 

For the Maximalist

If the words “glitter” and “cut-crease” don’t intimidate you on their own, let alone when they’re used in the same sentence, then we suggest giving this look created by YouTube vlogger SmithaDeepak a try. It definitely dispels any notion that pink eyeshadow is just for daytime wear.
