How To: All Pink Makeup

Pink is back. Back in a BIG way and not just when it comes to the usual suspects like dresses, blouses and skirts. This spring, pink is popping up in accessories, handbags, shoes, jackets and now, makeup. I know it sounds a little out there but give it a try! Pink is a universally flattering colour that will work for every woman of every skin tone. It creates a healthy, youthful glow, making you look fresh faced without actually going makeup free.

For everyday wear, go soft and simple. Avoid glitter on your lips and hot pink on your eyes. Keep in mind that you may not want to reach for pink shadow if your eyes are a little red (no one wants to look like they have pink eye) and be sure to finish with liner and lots of mascara.

Watch how our “Girl in Focus” Bianca Solterbeck wears this hot trend.
