If you thought pink was only for little girls, think again. This color is universally flattering, and it's available in so many gorgeous shades, especially when it comes to makeup (via Good Housekeeping). You can use it to add a natural flush to your face, perk up your eyes, or accentuate the natural color of your lips. Pink isn't just for soft, ethereal looks — there's a surprisingly cool, tough way of wearing it, too. There are more options than the traditional baby pink you may be used to. You can use rosy tones as neutrals for your lids, matte pastels to add a flush of color to your cheeks, rose gold to highlight, and bright fuchsia on your lips to turn up the volume. 

Refinery29 calls pink a versatile color that celebs have been wearing forever, and now it's your turn to rock this hue. Why limit it to just to your face? You can incorporate pink into your hair as well with a rose gold tint, or paint your nails with pink sparkles to compliment your new makeup look. Nothing screams wonderful warm weather more than these fresh shades of pink that you can use to either create a monochromatic look, or to highlight one particular feature. Trust us, these dreamy makeup ideas are anything but childish.

Flirty pink makeup ideas for your face

You're gorgeous the way you are, but sometimes adding a slight blush of color on the cheeks can elevate your entire look. Adding a little pink can make you look more awake, and rosy cheeks are often seen as a sign of good health and youth, per Healthline.

Wearing color on your cheeks can make a world of difference to your overall appearance — it adds dimension to your face and makes you look sun-kissed. Glamour says that you need the NARS Orgasm blush in your makeup collection because this flattering shade of peachy pink looks good on everyone. The silky, superfine powder pigments deliver a healthy-looking natural glow. 

If you prefer a cream blush, try Glossier Cloud Paint in Puff — it's a light, cool pink that looks pretty over foundation or bare skin. It has special blurring pigments that will not accentuate pores or texture, and it makes you look flawless. If blush just isn't your thing, you can go for the glow with rose gold highlighters (per Good Housekeeping). Keep the rest of your makeup minimal to get the most out of this helpful tip. 

PopSugar is a fan of Revolution PRO Lustre Highlighter in Rose Gold because it looks super luxurious, but it's quite affordable for the high-impact shine. Rosy cheeks, here we come!

Make your eyes and lips pop with pink

A pop of pink can make you look more alive and feel a bit happier. Byrdie recommends using a shadow stick in any shade of pink to give yourself statement eyes as one of the easiest ways to master this trick. Use it all over your lid and blend it into the crease for a totally bold look. They also recommend trying NUDESTIX Magnetic Eye Color in the shades Angel or Nudity to add intense color to your eyes. Take advantage of this dopamine-boosting color to add a little joy to your life by investing in the perfect eyeshadow palettes for people who love the color pink, like the Blushed Nudes Eyeshadow Makeup Palette from Maybelline. Step it up a notch with Metallic Mauve Winged Eyeliner, which is an unexpected take on classic black eyeliner (per Good Housekeeping). 

For those who want their pout to take center stage, you can either go subtle or full-on glam. Harper's Bazaar loves Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillow Talk. This neutral rose hue became so popular with consumers, Charlotte Tilbury decided to create a complete collection of products based on that shade. This long-lasting lipstick is surprisingly hydrating, as well. For fans of lip gloss, Glowsly suggests trying Dior Addict Lip Maximizer Plumping Lip Gloss in Raspberry because it gives you instant plumped lips reminiscent of Angelina Jolie. Plus, the color is super long-lasting.
