When it comes to cosmetics, one of the biggest questions is “how to wear pink makeup and still look grown-up.”
Pink is generally considered quite a youthful colour, and with the competition of bronzers and the tanned makeup look, is one that doesn’t get enough time in the spotlight.
Pink however, is a universally flattering colour and works on all skin tones. Achieving a tanned makeup look (without looking streaky or blotchy) is not. So when you’re in a rush, or need to have perfect makeup for an important occasion, you can always count on a pink blusher or lipstick to do the job.
How to Wear Pink Makeup
When it comes to wearing pink makeup, while the colour suits everyone, the shade will vary depending on your skin tone.
Choosing the right shade will make sure your makeup looks sophisticated and gorgeous, rather than child-like and garish.
How to Wear Pink Makeup on Pale Skin
If you have lighter skin tones, it can often be intimidating to opt for colourful makeup. However, a pop of pink can actually help to warm up your complexion and make your skin appear a little brighter, vibrant and more energetic.
Look for softer pinks at first that will add a hint of colour without you feeling like it’s too dark. This also applies to lipstick and eye shadows too – choose nude tones that will work with your complexion without looking too heavy.
