The Prettiest Pink Makeup That Flatters Everyone
By Danielle Fontana , Assistant Editor |
Sometimes, pink makeup looks prettier in the pan than it does on our faces (some of it has a way of making us feel cheesy or childish), but when the right products are selected, the elegant hue has the ability to turn heads and deliver the right amount of romance. Here, our top picks for the shade that never goes out of style.You May Also Like: How to Wear Red Lipstick at Any Age
Falling somewhere between a matte lipstick and a gloss, this new lineup from Giorgio Armani includes six bold, lightweight shades that leave lips feeling hydrated for four hours, looking plumped for just as long and sporting a flawless, luminous finish for a full eight hours and endless kisses. Pictured: N°518 Paparazzi Pink, N°515 Dress Code and N°517 Maharajah.
The instant this weightless, whipped formula glides onto lips, it’s clear it’s not like any other product you’ve used before. Aside from the stunning pink color wave the collection is available in, the unique texture leaves behind a stain-meets-velvet-finish that doesn’t crack or cause drying, but instead comforts and leaves lips feeling pillow soft and lets you forget you’re even wearing anything in the first place—the ultimate compliment for any lip formulation. Pictured: Fawn Rose No. 09, Primrose No. 21 and Brilliant Violet No. 45.
The ultimate choice for a one-shadow look (especially if you’re not a pink-lipstick girl) these long-wearing liquid eye shadows infuse pearl and glitter to deliver the perfect dose of shimmer and shine without ever looking cheesy. Pair either pink shade—go with Ballet Baby for a sheer, champagne rose or Violet Vixen (pictured) for a bolder option—with a nude lip and you’re ready to stun.
From warm to cool undertones, coral to plum shades and matte to shimmer finishes, this limited-edition blush palette includes every option you’ll ever need to complete your date-night look. Whether you swipe a little on the apples of your cheeks to add a flirty flush or add a bit more to make them the center of attention, this is the palette for the job.
The smallest details go a long way—starting with your fingertips. This luxe, berry-inspired polish set (it’s a $72 value) includes six shades, including a bright strawberry pink all the way to the deepest plum, that will perfectly complement any outfit from an all-red ensemble to a classic LBD.
Lanolips Tinted Balm ($14)
Whether you’re not in the mood for a full face of makeup or your plans don’t involve stilettos and a four-course dinner, we’ve been there and so have the experts at Lanolips, a brand committed to keeping lips kissable and conditioned all year long. Their original and flavored options are great (all are infused with lanolin, the secret ingredient behind keeping your pout hydrated) but these rose-tinted options are gorgeous and flattering on all skin tones, too.
Pigmented shadows in a dusty rose, classic champagne, bubblegum pink and bright pop of coral are paired with a smoky gray in this limited-edition palette fit to create any eye look you desire. Plus, it’s all housed in a chic, cheeky compact mirror with a message perfect to send any time of year.
Finely pressed and handcrafted pearls form a gorgeous pink mosaic in this blush-meets-highlighter that’s almost too pretty to wear. Once applied, matte shades of rose and fuchsia combine with a luminous, subtle highlighter to help your skin glow with or without candlelight.
If going matte isn’t your cup of tea, you’re in luck: This new easy-to-use click pen from Tom Ford dispenses perfectly pigmented, glossy color for long-lasting, high-shine wear in eight floral shades ideal for any skin tone. Plus, the sponge-tip applicator takes the guesswork out of touch-ups, making this the only thing you need in your clutch.
