PINKY ROSE GOLD:

Combine shades in brick red, burnt orange and sienna brown with rose gold for a rich and earthy feel.
Bronze, copper and gold look exquisite when paired with a rose gold palette. Add dimension to your rose gold look with different hues of pink, coral and even peach!
Most makeup palettes come with monochromatic shades that are within the same color family and compliment each other to make it easy for you to create and build a look.
Break up the monochrome look and add an element of interest by combining shades in coral, peach and bronze. Add lashes and glitter for a hint of glam!

Crank your monochrome palette up a notch with crimson pink smokey eyes. Get the maximum results with a minimum effort by combining shades in scarlet red, burgundy and mauve with a pink color palette for an alluring makeup look! Bring luminosity to the monochrome look with iridescent shimmer dust in opalescent hues in lilac, rose and baby pink. for a diamond glow.
A quick way to bring life to a monochrome color palette is adding texture! Play around with a pink color palette in different textures and finishes to add dimension to the look.
Emphasize your pink monochrome palette with smoldering hues in deep violet, taupe and even black. Add sparkles for a quick way to tszuj up your look.
PINK CUT CREASE:
The pink cut crease is an edgy take on how you can wear a pink color palette. There's so many versatile ways to wear a cut crease. Let's take a look at a few ideas.
Start with this neutral and beginner-friendly rosy glam eyes. Use a light brown matte eyeshadow to shade your crease and apply a dewy rosy color on the lid. For the lips, choose a baby pink lipstick and a crystal gloss.
For glam vibes, add a bit of glitter to the crease for a faux cut crease.
GET THE LOOK:
Create an easy duotone cut crease with a shimmery or textured shadow all over the lid. Then, apply a darker shade of pink in a matte finish to the crease. Extend the edges and connect to the outer edge of the lower lashline to create bold, feline cat eyes. Wearing pink in the crease in this style creates a very bold look.
For a more glam cut crease that's a bit more wearable and has less emphasis on the pink shade, carve out the crease with a dark shade like violet. Deepen the outer 'v' with a bit of black. Cut the crease with a creamy concealer. Then, create an ombre horizontal gradient across the lid, staying below the cut crease. Complete the look with liner and lashes.
MATCHY MATCHY IN PINK:
If you're a fan of a monochrome color palette (keeping things in the same color family) and keeping things simple, try the matchy matchy look. The entire look doesn't have to be monochromatic but try to match a few elements to bring the look together.
A newer trend is applying a shade of liquid lipstick and then using the same liquid lipstick as eyeliner on the upper lashline! You can also pair complimentary shades such as mauve and lilac to add a bit of dimension to the look.
Pick a shade of pink you really like (it can be baby pink, hot pink, etc.) and match your nail polish shade with your lipstick shade. We're seeing this a lot more often and this is a great way to add a little color pop especially when you're wearing a neutral outfit.
COLOR POP X PINK:
Sometimes you just want a nice pop of bold color! Go bright and bold with colorful rainbow lids and a pink cut crease. Keep the rainbow portion below the actual crease and create a pink gradient from the crease to the brow bone. Complete the look with matte pink lips.
Since pink is already a bold shade in itself you might be hesitant at combining other bold or loud shades but don't be afraid to do so! Combine shades in coral, peach, orange and yellow which all look great with a pink color palette! Experiment until you find a color palette that works for you!
Wearing a single shade of blush or lipstick is so last decade. Mixing up two or more shades is no longer a technique used on just the eyes. Create multifaceted dimension on the cheeks by layering blushes (aka "draping"). This technique adds a rosy glow with dimension and doesn't give your face a "muddy" look that can sometimes happen with contour or bronzer.
Combine two or more lip shades to create stunning ombre lip art! Apply the darkest shade on the center of the lips and apply a peachy nude on the outer part for a 'just bitten' effect. Apply a high shine gloss to blend it all together.
Sometimes combining unexpected shades like pink and orange or pink and purple gives you the most unique results!
Go for a more wearable ombre by applying a dark shade of pink all over lips and a light or luminous shade in the center for a more subtle ombre.
Try the pink ombre on your nails for a beautiful gradient effect. It instantly gives your manicure a fresh new look! Take your ombre manicure to next level by embellishing it with rhinestones, crystals and even nail art stamping!
A classic smokey eye never goes out of style and it's so easy to achieve! A soft smokey is perfect for soft glam vibes and the daytime.
Go all out with smoldering hues in fuschia, plum and violet for a bold night out look!
Combine rich shades in ruby red, burgundy, amethyst and pink with everyday neutrals like taupe, brown and peach for dramatic pink smokey eyes. For the bottom lashline, use golden sage glitter for an earthy look. The earthy neutrals blend and smoke everything out and are needed to warm up the look to make it a bit more wearable.
PINK X MAUVE:
A mauve color palette ranges from a pale purple to a dusty rose. Brown, gray and purple hues of taupe compliment a mauve color palette really well.
This versatile eye makeup look is perfect for special occasions: prom, wedding or even party. Blend a soft fuchsia eyeshadow on your lid, line your eyes and add a beautiful line of gold on your crease for a glam element.
Pink and purple look marvelous (or should we say mauve-lous) together! Mix a mauve color palette with matte hues in taupe and violet. Add white, ivory or champagne to bring luminosity to the look for an ultimate party look! Pop on lashes and skip heavy black liner for soft glam vibes.
Go with pink, mauve and berry hues for a stunning smokey ombre. Combining lighter shades with dark shades gives you more dramatic results than if you were to use shades that are more similar to each other.
Use mauve and taupes with shimmering champagne or gold for a soft glam halo spotlight!
Since mauves and taupes are literally soft neutral shades, amp up the drama by combining techniques such as cut crease and halo spotlight eyes! Add bold colors such as hot pink for an ultra dramatic look! Add texture with pearlescent shades in lilac, champagne or rose. Finish with lashes for a glam touch.
