It’s not a secret that pink was the color to wear last year. Pantone, the color matching system, named Rose Quartz one of its colors of the year in 2016. Quickly after, pink invaded the market. Millennial pink can be spotted almost everywhere from the fashion industry and Apple products to our makeup collections.
Along with Pantone’s color prediction came one of the most Instagramable makeup trends. From Selena Gomez and Rhianna at the Met Ball to Hailey Baldwin on the Moschino Resort 17 runway, Rose Quartz is being photographed on all the It girls faces. We want to recreate their looks, but, let’s be real. This is a hard trend to pull off in everyday life.
Intense looks are being worn by wearing hues of pink all over the eyes and lips and using draping—a popular blush technique—on the cheeks. Since we aren’t all walking down the red carpet every day, a toned down look is best. To create an everyday look, keep the pigment on your eyes almost sheer by only brushing few layers of powder onto the lid. To create dimension, add some blush to the cheek by draping it from the orbital bone to the cheek bone. Make sure to keep the pigment very light. Add some mascara and clear lipgloss (or chapstick if you don’t like the sticky feeling) to finish off the look.
If a completely pink makeup look is a tad intimidating to you, there are other ways to add the It color to your look. Rose shades can be worn as highlight on your cheeks, or to add some shimmer or on your nails to have a little touch of pink.
