One colour we saw plenty of on the spring/summer 15 catwalks was pink – from the clothes to the make-up pink was abundant, signalling a major beauty trend.
Pink however can be a little tricky to work with, and requires a soft touch to avoid Barbie territory.
Below we look at some of the easiest and most flattering ways to embrace the pink trend into your make-up routine:
On the eyes
Wearing pink on your lids can bring out any redness and make you look less than healthy. To avoid this, look to use a pale, shimmery pink or experiment with deeper rose-gold hues. Pair with black mascara or a liquid liner for a sophisticated contrast.
On the lips
The lips are probably the easiest and most fun place to wear pink. As our lips are naturally pink, deepening this colour helps make your teeth look whiter and your skin look more radiant. Try a bold fuchsia for a fun take on the trend or a soft, English-rose for every day.
On the cheeks
Pink blush is nothing new, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t enjoy it. Sugary blue-toned pinks look best on pale or dark skin, while warmer-toned pinks flatter all skin-tones. Try topping your blush with a touch of highlighter for a naturally dewy look.
On the nails
Your nails are the one place you should feel free to go a little crazy with the pink trend. A pale shade will offer a subtle nod to the trend, while brighter pinks will look great against a summer tan.
