My thoughts on pink eyeshadow? I’m into it. I have been ever since high school. My very first pink (because you never forget your first!) was a dainty pale pink frost — Seashell Pink, by Clinique — which I loved to wear from lash line to brow bone when I was a teenager.
But wait, it gets better…
Sometimes I added a little bit of shimmery bright blue in the outer corner. 😉
Later in high school, when I REALLY started experimenting, I buffed my favorite pink blushes on my lids. One was Clinique New Clover, otherwise known as “the blush in almost every gift-with-purchase ever given out at the Clinique counter.”
In college, I was all about the mauve-pinks, and again, Clinique. The color was Fawn Satin, which used to be sold as an eyeshadow single in the ’90s. (Fun fact! Both Seashell Pink and Fawn Satin are still around, and they’re sold together in a duo.)
Even today, I still wear all o’ the pinks. When I wear neutral looks, I like to use a pale pink eyeshadow like MAC Malt as highlight placed in the center of the lid, underneath the arch of the brow (just a little), and also in the inner corner.
And you? What are your thoughts on pink eyeshadow?
