3 Quick and simple ways to take on the pink makeup trend
We've explored contouring with blush and all-pink fragrances - but this is how you can really take your pink obsession to the next level

It's official—looking like you're in the pink of health (quite literally) is the upcoming season's biggest beauty trend. If you've always shied away from this ultra sweet hue because it's a tad too saccharine for your makeup taste, a handful of beauty looks from the runways of Spring/Summer 2017 shows us that it is possible to work pink into your beauty routine without looking like you've gotten sunburnt or a pink eye. Here's how you can do it:

 

Eyes

The trick to easing your way to pulling pink off via your eye makeup is to go with a finish that complements your eyes. Try a glossy look spotted at Emporio Armani with matching lips in the same hue, or Delpozo's understatedly romantic look with peach undertones. If you are feeling adventurous, channel a bolder look seen at Hermès by blending matte pink eyeshadow on your upper eyelids and a dark grey on the lower lids.

Cheeks

Naturally, a dust of blush across the cheekbones is the easiest way to wear pink on your face. But why not pack a punch this time around with draping? Contour your cheeks with blush extending upwards to the area next to your eyes (seen at Chanel) for a lovely flushed look. Or you can go with a graphic swipe of cream blush over your cheekbones to make a statement (Max Mara).

Lips

What we love about pink lippies is how it gives your overall complexion a naturally radiant look. Tinted lipbalms are basically lifesavers on days that we don't have time for makeup—Dior and Preen featured subtle pink lips teemed with a no-makeup makeup look. Switch it up in the evening with a brilliant fuchsia lip colour (Cushnie et Ochs) before you head out to paint the town red.
