Why You Actually Want To Get 'Pink Eye' This Spring


Why You Actually Want To Get ‘Pink Eye’ This Spring | HuffPost Life

“Pink eye” is one of the latest trends taking over the beauty world, and thankfully it has nothing to do with dirty makeup brushes or poor hygiene.

This trend is all about using rosy pink and red pigments on the eyes, and it can be as subtle or bold as you like. We saw it pop up on both the Valentino spring 2018 couture and ready-to-wear runways, and stars like Emma Stone and Kerry Washington have tried it out on the red carpet.

So whether you’re into experimenting with makeup or not, there’s probably a shade of pink for you. If you need a little inspiration, we’ve got you covered. Just check out the pictures below:

If you want to give this trend a go but aren’t ready to jump in head first, take a cue from Emma Stone, who rocked this subtle pink eye look, created by makeup artist Rachel Goodwin, for the 90th annual Academy Awards on March 4, 2018. The rosy tones perfectly complemented her burgundy and pink Louis Vuitton blazer.

Hung Vanngo created this bold red eyeshadow look on Emily Ratajkowski for the Warner Bros. Golden Globes after party on Jan. 7, 2018. The key to pulling off a look like this is to keep everything else fairly minimal — Ratajkowski’s dress and hair are simple, letting the makeup shine.

Saoirse Ronan’s natural, light smoky eye, created by makeup artist Kara Yoshimoto for the AARP Awards in February 2018, is another great example of this trend done subtly.

Kerry Washington

To achieve this look on Kerry Washington for the Producers Guild Awards in January, makeup artist Carola Gonzalez used the same color for blush and eyelids. The result was a fresh, radiant look perfect for the warmer days ahead.

During New York Fashion Week in February 2018, Zoey Deutch complemented the pink lapel on her coat with a matching pink makeup look that was bold, but not over the top.

Alison Brie’s shimmery light pink eye look, paired with a bubblegum pink lip, is a perfect look for spring. The “Glow” star sported this look at the Council of Fashion Designers of America luncheon at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles on Feb. 20, 2018.
