If you like to coordinate your makeup looks with the seasons, then chances are you’ll be stocking up on pastel makeup for spring. You can never go wrong with pretty shades of pink makeup, whatever your makeup personality may be. 

Whether you’re a minimalist, maximalist or somewhere in between, there’s a way to incorporate pink makeup into your routine. Keep scrolling to check out three of our fave pink makeup looks that are perfect for the spring months. 

Where Do You Put Pink Eyeshadow?

It can be tricky to pull off pink eyeshadow without looking like you have, well, pink eye. But a two-toned wash of pink shadow with a sparkly finish like the below look by @risal_j_ is fun, festive and far from sickly. To get the look, we recommend using the Valentino Beauty Dreamdust Eyeshadow in Go For Gold, a glittery pink eyeshadow with warm flecks of gold. For the most flattering look, focus the color on the center of the lid, and diffuse it with a soft white or pale champagne shade near the inner corner.  

How Do You Apply Pink Makeup?

If you prefer to let your skin do all the talking, add a touch of pink blush (we love the Saie Beauty Dew Blush in Peachy) to the apples of your cheeks to elevate your springtime glow. In keeping with the pink vibe, top your lips off with a pink gloss like the Lawless Forget the Filler Lip Plumping Gloss in Velvet.

What Skin Tones Can Wear Pink Makeup?

If you describe your makeup aesthetic as part-maximalist, part-minimalist, you need to try this makeup look by @evalisa.s. She creates a soft pinkish brown lip moment with the help of NYX Professional Makeup Slim Lip Pencil in Mahogany and the Armani Beauty Lip Power Longwear Satin Lipstick in Romanza. When used together, the pair accentuates her hot pink blush without taking the look over the top. The pencil warms up the pink in a way that’s perfect for her olive skin tone. But every skin tone can wear pink makeup — it’s all about choosing the right shade with the right undertones.
