Pops of Pink: 3 Ways to Wear the Hue

By  March 21, 2013

Pink is perfect any time of the year, but its softer shades are synonymous with spring. While the color might usually be reserved for cheeks and lips, there are different ways to wear it that are sure to stand out this season.

Eyes – While it’s rare to see the shade sported on lids, a sheer wash of light pink in a satin or shimmering finish can add a subtle glow to the eyes for a polished, natural look that can work with any ensemble.

We’d try it with Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Metal Eyeshadow, $5.94, or Revlon Luxurious Color Diamond Lust Shadow, $4.49

Lips – The ombré trend has made its way from our hair to our lips. You can choose a darker shade to apply first, emphasizing the outer lip line, then use a lighter pink to fill in the center of the lips and blend for an eye-catching pout.

Test it out with Sonia Kashuk Satin Luxe Lip Color in Pink Punch, $9.99, and Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Wine for Pink, $4.99

Nails – We fell in love with Tracy Reese’s fall 2013 nails, but you don’t have to wait to get the look for yourself! Layer a baby pink over a hot pink by applying the lighter hue a touch away from the dark layer for a modern reverse French manicure that’s #ManiMonday-worthy!

Swipe on the look with Essie Nail Color in Petal Pink, $7.79, over Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Color in Twisted Pink, $2.49
