Pink makeup began to gain popularity this summer but it will not be swayed by cooler weather and the change in popular makeup colors that the fall season normally brings. While there is an offering of rosier shades to compliment paler skin and the darker clothing colors of the changing season, the soft, summery tones are going nowhere and the results are as stunning wrapped in the shades of autumn as they were under the bright sunlight of July.
So why did pink makeup make such a hit and why is it sticking around through the seasonal transition that usually takes summer colors off the market? There are two main reasons, the first is that there is no other color that adds highlights and brightens like pink, especially soft pinks. The second reason is that pink creates a palette that accepts practically any color and compliments it well. But not just any color of pink. If youíre looking to conceal, soft pinks with just a hint a shimmer are the only shade that will not leave certain skin tones looking worse for wear. Even better are these soft shades of pink in cream blush.
If you have dark circles either from genetics, sickness or lack of sleep, and you use pink blush, pink transfers attention from your dark, sallow eyes to the brightness of your cheeks. For some women who have especially dark circles that extend from beyond the lower lids to the crease of their eyes, they find that dusting the pink blush over their concealer adds just the right amount of diversion and keeps the concealer from glowing especially under florescent lights. The same pink blush or a shimmering pink eye shadow swept along the crease of the eye can work the same wonders by brightening the eye and diverting attention from the darker skin. Beware of shades that begin to change from soft pink to rose. Rose shades tend to pull the sallow colors from the skin and make eyes look sore rather than bright.
Pink cheeks and lips also create an amazingly versatile palette that can go well with colors from every family and every season. Pink is not limited to warm or cool tones so everyone can find a shade that compliments and actually improves the overall look of their skin. Pink cheeks brighten and soften your look so that dark cat eyes or sultry gold`s or pale nudes all look equally balanced and healthy. Of course youíll want to choose a darker shade of pink if your eye makeup is very dark. Pink cheeks and lips also give an otherwise bare face a healthy glow. Wearing just a bit of healthy, organic or nutrient rich makeup is often better for you than going with none. It offers a layer of protection between you and the sun and you and pollutants that youíll never see, but will definitely see the effects of in the way of breakouts and uneven skin tone.
