one of the boldest trends coming out in beauty for spring 2013 is pink eyeshadow. we’re seeing shades from baby pink to fuchsia in shimmer and matte, appearing in both cream and powder formulas. i’m not going to lie to you – it’s a lot of look!

but, the more that i’ve played around with pink, i’ve found that it’s equally youthful and glamorous – and when you wear it on your eyes, it’s a great way to stand out. maybe it’s not for everyone and it can be a bit tricky to pull off, but i’ve rounded up nine options, so whether you’re up for a pastel dusting or a wash of hot pink, you’ve got plenty of ways to wear it now.

top row:
lancome color design infinite in everlasting rose, $24.50
givenchy ombre a fleur de peau eyeshadow in pearly rose, $34
make up for ever powder blush in candy pink, $20

middle row:
ysl ombre solo in parisienne pink, $30
urban decay eyeshadow in woodstock, $18
laura mercier second skin cheek color in rose petal, $24

bottom row:
sephora collection colorful mono eyeshadow in sweet candy pink, $13
cargo eyeshadow dup in sarasota, $20
i-mark wet/dry eye shadow in luvstruck, $7

tip: if you want to try the trend, but you’re not game to invest in a whole pot of pink shadow, try dusting some blush on your eyes to get the look. chances are, you’ve got more than one shade of pink already in your makeup wardrobe so you can go pink without spending a cent.

think you’ll do the pink thing this spring?

  1. For a special occasion, sure!!! I’ll try it, with a neutral outfit :) thanks

  2. awesome. I have wanted to do a “pink eye” look for a while but it all comes down to finding the right shade of pink for certain skintones that won’t look sickly or too theatrical.

      exactly – i would recommend playing around with your blush shade first and then kind of going from there. honestly, the brights seem to be the ones that work on everyone. you can always find a formula that allows you to wash it on more sheer until you get comfortable :)

    Some times I like to dust a little of my coral-y pink on my lids, but maybe it’s time to graduate until a full on shadow!
