From countless runway shows to all of our favourite celebrities, pink eyeshadow is having a serious moment this season and we’re absolutely loving it. Coined as cherry eyes for those in-the-know, a pinky glow around the eyes may sound quite experimental, but done properly it can look seriously cool. The best part? Anyone can pull it off.
Though as is the case with most new makeup looks, it’s probably wise to leave it in the hands of the experts, at least for your first attempt. So for your next night out, why not book in for a professional makeup session? A good makeup artist will guide you and help to pick the best colours for your skin tone. That being said, it helps to come prepared. Toning down any redness in your complexion is the key to pulling off the perfect cherry eye – so if you’re prone to flushed skin, be sure to ask them to use a creamy concealer, as the pink on your eyes should be the only pink on your face.
Once the prep is done, all you need to do is choose your colour(s). Whether you go for a soft peachy pink a la Marc Jacobs or a fierce fuchsia as perfectly executed at Rodarte’s SS/19 show last month, the choice is yours. But if you need some help deciding, just bring along this beauty board to your appointment – you’ll be spoiled for choice.
