#### How to Wear Pink for Eyes
Pink eyeshadow can take you through every beauty look, from the most enchanting to the most fashion forward.
Light shades are perfect for elevating your everyday nude looks, such as the [Laura Mercier Sateen Eye Colour in Sandstone](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/beauty/make-up/eyes/eyeshadows/sateen-eye-colour/2500001064424.html), which adds subtle colour to fairer complexions.

Vibrant pink shades like magenta and taffy are exciting and irreverent, especially when they shimmer like this [NARS Hardwired Eyeshadow](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/beauty/make-up/eyes/eyeshadows/hardwired-eyeshadow/2530006695552.html), and look stunning on dark skin tones.
No matter what shade you opt for, be generous with your mascara and sharp with your liner – this will give your eyes definition and prevent you from looking sickly or exhausted.
#### How to Wear Pink for Cheeks
For quite some time, make-up experts and enthusiasts have been focusing on the art of contouring with bronzers and highlighters. While we love that look (especially for golden summer beauty), we’re excited to see the return of blusher to our make-up bags. From the iconic [NARS Orgasm Blush](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/beauty/make-up/face/blushers/liquid-blush/2530003529720.html) to the subtle tones of [Hourglass' Ambient Strobe Lighting Blush](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/beauty/make-up/face/blushers/ambient-strobe-lighting-blush/2530007452727.html) to the electro-pop [Beach Stick from Charlotte Tilbury](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/beauty/make-up/face/blushers/beach-sticks/2500000754449.html), pink is making a comeback, just in time for spring.
Pink blushers will brighten your complexion and give you that coveted youthful glow. It invigorates and compliments every skin tone, as it mimics your natural rosiness. Choose a shade that is a little lighter from your natural flush and apply it lightly to the apple of your cheeks. As a guide, the apples are the front part of your cheeks when you smile, and you should apply no lower than your smile lines.
You can still use blusher to structure your face, as you would with contouring. Applying blusher in a circular motion is flattering to heart, oval and round face shapes, while long, square and triangle face shapes benefit from a sweeping motion, where the blusher lengthens from the apple up towards to the ear.
#### How to Wear Pink for Lips
When it comes to lipstick, red is a classic, nude is a staple, and pink? Well, pink can be pretty, fun or bold, depending on the shade.
Soft, ballet slipper pinks, like [Dolly Bird from Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Lips](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/beauty/make-up/lips/lipsticks/hollywood-lips/2530001697025.html), are great for your daily beauty routine or for balancing out dramatic eye looks. For a more evening-ready lip, we’re looking to berry shades of pink, which combine sophistication with attitude – perfectly exemplified in this [Shiseido Visionary Gel Lipstick in Cherry Festival](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/beauty/make-up/lips/lipsticks/visionairy-gel-lipstick/2530007461019.html).
It was the iconic Italian designer Elsa Schiaparelli who championed shocking pink, and nowadays we’re seeing the fruits of her labour. Whether it goes by hot pink, bright pink or shocking pink, this lively shade will invigorate your beauty look, outfit and spirit. It’s as bold as it is daring, and pops against any skin tone. Take a walk on the wilder side and try this [Laura Mercier Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/beauty/make-up/lips/lipsticks/velour-extreme-matte-lipstick/2530003697856.html) in the standout shade _It Girl_ to see what we mean.
