Despite the active attack on the palettes of makeup artists in shades of yellow-blue-green, Barbie's favorite color does not think to give up. Puppet shades of cotton candy, bubblegum, unripe strawberries and dusty rose continue to appear on fashion catwalks and red carpets (and even celebrate in royal appearances).
In the spring-summer season, pink becomes synonymous with comfort: it is beautiful both traditionally on the lips, and on the cheekbones, on the eyelids and even on the eyebrows with eyelashes.
Who is pink makeup for?
To absolutely everyone. Just pink is a tricky color, despite its apparent simplicity, and you need to choose the right shade of pink in order to emphasize the advantages and hide the flaws. Light skin will go for pastel shades a la baby pink (bright fuchsia and other "hard" pinks can make the skin look painful, making it even paler). Almost any shade of pink works for olive skin tone, especially deep and dusty shades. The only exception to this is "faint" colors like milky pink, which can make the makeup look faded. Dark skin tones are ideally suited to "live" neon shades of pink: fuchsia and other ultra-colors "dark" girls can safely wear even during the day in the format of business meetings: they very favorably set off the natural pigment of the skin.
How (and where) to wear pink shades?
Do not be afraid of pink shadows: with the right approach, the eyes will not look sickly. The main condition is an ideal face tone without redness and rashes. Therefore, before proceeding with eye makeup, carefully mask all imperfections (correctors and concealers will help you). Pay special attention to the area around the eyes, and use a concealer for it a tone lighter.
Pink on the lips is the same classic as pumps ─ appropriate both day and evening. Apply lipstick with a brush for an intense color, or with your fingers for a light shade. Learn to mix two tones at once (darker along the outline and a little lighter in the middle).
Pink blush is good for refreshing. Creamy or gel textures with light-reflecting micro-particles create a healthy glow on the skin. If you all prefer a powdery texture, go for the one with a fine shimmer - a little shine won't hurt anyone. It is better to apply blush with a kabuki brush: it is better than others for adjusting the intensity of application.
5 "pink" catwalk trends
They can be both clear graphic and vague, carefully shaded. You can use for drawing a liner, a pencil (equally for eyes and lips), compact loose and liquid shadows. To prevent the eyelashes from losing their volume, first paint over the space between the eyelashes well (“voluminous” mascara, preferably black, is also required).
Fuchsia, pink with a purple tint, cyclomene and coral will look on the eyelids no worse than black, brown and graphite shades. The main thing is a dense layer of shadows (try using cream as a base). Blend the pink, taking it beyond the movable eyelid almost to the eyebrows or ─ the last squeak ─ far to the temple.
The effect of "tear-stained eyes" can be avoided by carefully tracing the lash line with brown or black liner, pencil or shadows.
Pink is one of the basic makeup colors in nude tones. We strictly follow the rule “the lighter the skin, the paler the shade of pink” and use pink on the cheekbones, eyes, lips and even eyelashes (after using the traditional “nude” brown mascara or colorless gel, powder the ends of the eyelashes with pink shadows ─ a slight “piquant” effect provided). Do not forget that the coating on the lips ─ pink lipstick or gloss ─ must be translucent, which means that the use of a base and a pencil is excluded.
When it comes to a stylized baby doll party, it is better to limit yourself to one or two makeup accents. And if one of them is pink lipstick, bright and matte, the main thing is not to forget to use a lip scrub and a nourishing balm the day before (there is nothing worse than bright, but flaky lips). Otherwise, just follow the rule: the darker the tone of the face, the richer the shade should be.
Everything is simple here: we create what we want, adding a drop of pink at will to our favorite make-up. Salmon, flamingos and peach are quite unexpectedly wonderfully combined with the very popular yellow-green makeup palette today. For strong accents, it is better to use pigment, and achieve a dense, bright coating with a damp brush. Having worked the eyes properly, the lips should be given a minimum (a drop of gloss or shimmery nourished balm will do) in order to maintain the necessary balance of color harmony and not to frighten others.
