While pink eyeshadow has been a makeup bag essential for decades, never before has it experienced quite the moment that it’s enjoying for Spring 2017. On social media, beauty gurus of every stripe are painting their lids with flamingo-toned eyeshadow, which is stealing the spotlight from light pastel tones. Although ballet slipper and barely there blush shades are still popular, the hot pink eyelid is a funky, free-spirited way to rock the trend.

If you’re uncertain of the trend, try layering your darker pink eyeshadow with a lighter pink option, to create a pretty monochromatic look. Meanwhile, dramatic long eyelashes, contoured rosy cheeks and a precious pink pout can complement the pink colour palette of your makeup look.

Meanwhile, shading and blending your flamingo shadow can bring the attention to your lids, and can especially contrast against brown eyes. Paired with a matching dark pink lip and flawless springtime skin, a pop of colour can go a long way toward creating a refreshing beauty look.
To bring your pink eyelid into the evening hours, turn to a hint of silver glitter and dark winged eyeliner. Whether you are craving everyday glam or a bold statement for a night on the town, there’s no denying the fact that hot pink shadow is officially hot.
