Be it a hot pink lip colour or a dusty rose evening gown, pink is every girl's best friend and almost everyone has some shades of this colour in their wardrobe and makeup kit. So, today let's talk about pairing the two i.e. how to create a stunning makeup for a pink dress, taking inspiration from this colour.
No matter, if you are wearing a pink prom dress or a party attire, in today’s tutorial of ‘makeup for a pink dress’, we’ll share some stunning makeup ideas that will complement every pink dress in your wardrobe and make you the definition of ‘pretty in pink’.
• Bright Pinks
Summer and spring are the perfect seasons to pull off the bright pink shades - think raspberry or fuchsia. Now if you’re thinking of wearing bright makeup with a pink dress, stop right now. Don’t go overboard! Instead, we’ll recommend that you choose one facial feature to focus on and keep the rest of the look neutral. For instance, if you want to highlight your eyes, we’d recommend this classic eye makeup for a pink dress. Start by shaping your eyebrows. Once that is done, use a golden eyeshadow to highlight your upper eyelid, and define your eyes using a kajal and eyeliner. Follow it up with a pink blush, and a pink lipstick and your pink dress makeup look is now ready.
• Light Pinks
Lighter shades of pink such as baby pink, dusty rose or so, deserve a bold makeup. And nothing speaks bold like smokey eyes. If you’re looking for ideas to do makeup for a light pink dress, here’s what you can do. Create a smokey eye look and finish off by adding some shimmer on it. Use waterproof mascara to densify your eyelash and add volume. Next, apply blush on the apples of your cheekbones and complete your face makeup by applying a highlighter just above the blush on the upper cheekbone. Complete your makeup with a beige lipstick and style yourself pretty with accessories.
• Dark Pinks
If you are wearing a dark pink dress, your makeup should ideally be dark and dramatic. However, it is important to balance your makeup for a pink dress with a few lighter elements so that you don’t look gaudy. To complement the dark tones of a dark pink dress, create a cut crease look. Apply brown eyeshadow on your crease and follow it with a brightening concealer across the lid, cutting your crease in a clean semi-circle. You can find your ideal concealer shade by using the Maybelline Foundation Finder tool and then go a shade or two lighter to get the desired look. Add a tint of colour to your cheeks by using a peach blush and enhance your lips with red lipstick.
• Orange Pinks
There are two popular shades of orange pink - coral and salmon - and both work well with any and every shade of makeup. This shade of pink allows you to play with contrasting colours and makes you stand out from the rest. Begin your eye makeup with a vibrant green eyeshadow. To create a show-stopping look, follow this step by using a navy blue eyeliner on your lower lash line. Give your complexion a pop of colour by applying a rosy nude blush on the apples of your cheek. You can go for a bold fuchsia lipstick to add a quotient of glam to your look.
For your pink dress makeup look ideas to stand out, you need a flawless base makeup to support it. The first and most crucial step of your makeup for pink dress should be using a primer to create a smooth base. Next, apply a foundation to create an even complexion. Then, use a concealer to highlight certain parts of your face like your eye contours and the top of your cheekbones, and your base makeup is now ready.
