Move over, boring neutral eyeshadows! Pink eyeshadow looks are here to add a pop of color and a touch of playfulness to your makeup routine. But don’t be fooled by its playful appearance—pink can also be elegant and sophisticated.
One of the best things about pink is that it flatters all skin tones. From pale pink for fair skin to fuchsia for darker skin, there’s a shade of pink for everyone. And the best part is that pink eyeshadow can be worn in a variety of ways.
For a subtle, everyday look, try a pale pink hue on the lid and inner corner of the eye. This will add a touch of brightness to the eyes and make them appear more awake. For a more dramatic look, try a bold fuchsia or hot pink on the lid, and blend it out towards the crease. This will make your eyes pop and will be perfect for a night out.
So, don’t be afraid to add some pink eyeshadow to your makeup collection. It’s a versatile and playful color that can be worn in many different ways, making it a perfect addition to any makeup routine. Just grab your favorite color, and let your eyes do the talking!
1. Pink Ombres
Selena Gomez isn’t afraid to experiment with her makeup, often sporting bright colors and interesting textures on her eyes and lips. Plus, why not wear bright neon eyeshadow if you’re going to be traveling the same road?
Consider her electrified eyelids a model of your own. Makeup artist Jenna Nicole created this look, which includes bronzed skin and a two-toned, brown-nude lip. This is the kind of outfit you want to reserve for a special occasion—a trip to the beach, a night out with your girlfriends, etc., or even something as simple as grocery shopping.
2. Shimmering Pink With Nude Lips
Dua Lipa‘s makeup style is so distinctive in a beauty industry where the no-no-makeup trend persists. When it comes to her eyes, she takes a high-octane, risky, and fun approach.
To embrace Dua’s vitality, apply a thick coat of shimmering pink shadow and watch as your lids become a stage for a dazzling array of tiny galaxies. If you’d rather have a technicolor moment on your lids, shimmering lavenders and vibrant purples are also great options.
For maximum effect from your pink eyeshadow, keep the rest of your face makeup minimal by using a sheer skin tint and a clear gloss.
3. Fuchsia EYeshadow
We couldn’t take our eyes off Zendaya at the 25th annual Critics’ Choice Awards, where she was wearing a Tom Ford outfit, but we’d be negligent if we didn’t mention that her punch of fuchsia makeup delivered just as much pink excitement.
Long box braids and subtle makeup were complemented by a glossy pink lip in her ensemble.
4. Pink Smokey Eye
Ladies, step aside basic black smokey eye, there’s a new sheriff in town and her name is pink!
Yes, that’s right, pink smokey eye is the latest trend to take over the beauty world and it’s not just for the ladies who lunch anymore. This look is for anyone who wants to add a pop of color and a touch of playfulness to their makeup routine.
Now, before you go thinking that it’s just for the daring and bold, let us tell you, it’s actually quite versatile. You can go for a subtle, barely-there blush of pink or go full-on fuchsia.
5. Soft pink Cut Crease
Iris Apatow, the younger sister of Euphoria actress Maude Apatow, is emulating her sister in terms of looks. We can’t get enough of the famous sisters, and the youngest of the duo recently posted an Instagram photo of her eyeliner that got thousands of comments and likes.
The Instagram post showcased the starlet’s cut crease, deep mauve and soft pink sparkly eyeshadow, precise winged liner, and flesh-toned luscious lips. This stunning makeup design was created by Alexandra French and even earned the approval of Olivia Rodrigo and Paris Hilton.
6. Liquid Shimmer with Eye Jewels
This pink eyeshadow look is perfect for a night out with the girls. It’s flirty, playful, and will make you feel like the life of the party. Pair it with a pink lip tint and a cute dress, and you’re sure to turn heads.
The key to this look is a liquid shimmer eyeshadow in a triangle shape on the lids, paired with a few strategically placed eye jewels.
7. Frosted Pink
Lizzo always goes all out for holidays, and Valentine’s Day is no exception. The singer revealed her eye-catching beauty look for the celebration, showing off her heart-shaped buns, pink eyeshadow, glittering lips, and studs in the shape of hearts.
Alexx Mayo, her makeup artist, gave her a dramatic lilac eyeshadow and glittery glitter lip combination using Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk lip liner and a lip kit from Stay Golden Cosmetics. Meanwhile, nail artist Eri Ishizu Ishizu decorated each fingernail with a silver gemstone and a crimson heart.
8. Pink Smokey Eye with Reverse Eyeliner
Megan Fox has recently joined the monochromatic beauty trend by dying her hair a pale pink tint to mimic fiancé Machine Gun Kelly’s. Makeup artist Clarissa Luna gave her a neutral smokey eye and a quirky twist by applying a complementing pink eyeliner.
Reversing the typical placement of eyeliner by applying it below the lower lash line is a simple but effective method to amp up your eye makeup. Take cues from Fox’s latest look to see how to make the reverse eyeliner trend work with your existing cosmetics routine or to complement an outfit.
9. Pastel Pink and Coral Lids
This pastel pink and coral eyeshadow look is the perfect way to add a pop of color to your eye makeup. The soft pink shade on the lids is delicate and feminine, while the coral adds a touch of warmth and vibrancy.
It’s perfect for a daytime event, or for a fresh and natural look. The eyeshadow shades blend seamlessly together, creating a beautiful gradient effect that will make your eyes stand out.
The pastel tones will look great on all skin tones and will give you a fresh and youthful appearance. To complete the look, pair it with a neutral lip tint and a light blush.
10. Watermelon Lids
Everyone seems to be suffering from extreme boredom at the moment, but luckily, this has given rise to some very stylish outfits that you wouldn’t see on Instagram on a typical weekday. To that end, Kylie Jenner’s pink eyeshadow is the next trend to try out at home if you’re in need of some motivation and a good excuse to get out the bold hues in your palettes.
While celebrating her 22nd birthday, the supermodel launched a makeup collection for her beauty empire Kylie Cosmetics. She posted photos to her socials donning a money-themed dress complemented by this gorgeous makeup look with pink lids.
