Pink is a universally flattering color — it works to bring out the natural flush in your cheeks and warms up the face. When you think of pink makeup, your mind may automatically go to nude lipstick and romantic blush, but pink makeup also looks amazing swept across the eyelids as eyeshadow or used as a glowy highlighter.

Right now, pink makeup looks are having a major moment (unsurprisingly, so is rose gold and peach hair). Celebrities are swiping the shade all over their faces — and who could blame them? Pink makeup strikes the perfect balance between traditional and modern. The color adds a hint of sweetness to the face while still feeling fresh.

Below, check out some some of the best pink makeup trends — from fuchsia eyeliner to muted, rosy blush.

1 Flirty Pink Blush

Lizzo's subtle wash of pink makes her look impossibly fresh-faced. To achieve a look like this, go heavy on illuminating blush, which will give your cheeks a cheery glow.


2 Neutral Pink Lips

Pick a pink tone that's just a shade or two darker than your natural lip color to find your perfect neutral pink. Use this shade all over for natural-looking, subtle makeup.


3 Pink Smoky Eye Makeup

A flash of fuchsia will catch anyone's attention. Go for a bright pink smoky eye by blending a sparkly hot pink into the outer corners.

4 Soft Pink Eyeshadow

A big trend in 2021 is blending your blush seamlessly into your eye makeup. This helps bring tons of warmth to the eyes, which helps light up your whole face.


5 Full-Face Pink Makeup

Monochromatic makeup takes the guesswork out of determining which shades go together. Take a cue from Lucy Hale and use the same shade on your eyes, lips and cheeks.


6 Hot Pink Lashes

For an unexpected twist, forgo your usual black mascara and opt for a vivid pink one. You can pair this with any eyeshadow color, like a dreamy lilac.


7 Neon Pink Eyeshadow

This bold take on pink makeup adds an unexpected pop of color. When trying out neons like this, it's best to use minimal makeup on the rest of your face to keep the look balanced.

8 Light Pink Eye Makeup

Opting for a light, petal pink shade like Lily Collins can wake up your eyes, making them appear wider and brighter.


9 Bold Gold and Pink Makeup

If you want to create tons of drama, try a metallic pink smoky eye. Keep the rest of your face neutral so you don't overpower your features.

10 Dramatic Pink Cat Eye

For a striking look that will have everyone do a double take, try a bold winged eye with eyeshadow. This reddish-pink take makes blue eyes pop.

11 Subtle Hint of Blush

Pink makeup doesn't have to be too intense — it can be barely there, providing just a hint of warmth. Yara Shahidi proves that a soft sweep of pink can look both effortless and chic.

12 Metallic Mauve Winged Eyeliner

Go bold while keeping the colors muted with a metallic dusty pink cat eye. This look will work on everyone, but it especially emphasizes brown eyes.

13 Dewy Pink Cheeks

Want to look as glowy as possible? Try keeping your face makeup minimal and adding a rosy highlighter on all the high points of your face.


14 Pink Sunset Liner

Shay Mitchell brings the heat with eyeliner that looks like a fiery sunset. A pop of hot pink in the inner corners brings all the focus to her eyes.
