Pink eye makeup will always have a special place in our hearts, and if the latest makeup trends are anything to go off of, it seems like we aren’t alone. Pink eyeshadow looks have been surfacing across our social media feeds, from ultra-wearable to bold, statement options. If you’re anything like us, we’re sure you’re itching to get all the pink eyeshadow inspo. Grab your pink eyeshadow palette and get ready because we’re sharing 26 pink eyeshadow looks you’ll be dying to try.
#1. PINK SMOKY EYE
If you’re ready to fully embrace the pink eyeshadow trend, look no further than a pink smoky eye! Using multiple shades of pink, this look involves a pink gradient that makes for a seriously pretty eye makeup look. Here’s what to do.
Step 1. Prime your eyes. As with any eye makeup look, begin by smoothing on an eye primer.
Step 2. Color your lids. Paint your lids in a light pink eyeshadow, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Mademoiselle Pink.
Step 3. Define your crease. Using a fluffy eyeshadow brush, apply a bright pink eyeshadow to your crease. Blend well to make sure there’s a seamless transition between shades!
Step 4. Smoke it out. Taking that same bright pink eyeshadow on a small, tapered eyeshadow brush, add some color along your lower lash line. Gently smudge the shadow for a smoky effect.
Step 4. Highlight. To add a bit more definition to the look, use a shimmering white eyeshadow, like the L’Oréal Paris Brilliant Eyes Shimmer Liquid Eye Shadow Makeup in String of Pearls, to highlight your inner corners.
Step 5. Line your eyes. What’s a smoky eye without eyeliner? Create your sharpest wing using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Flash Cat Eye Waterproof Brush Tip Liquid Eyeliner.
Step 6. Layer on mascara. You know what to do—apply a few coats of the L’Oréal Paris Bambi Eye Washable Mascara, Lasting Volume.
#2. ROSE GOLD LIDS
Rose gold eyeshadow will forever hold a special place in our hearts, and the metallic hue is one of the easiest ways to give the pink eyeshadow trend a try. To get the look, simply color your lids with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Metallics Eye Shadow in Rose Chrome. Use a fluffy eyeshadow brush to blend the color into your crease for a seamless look.
#3. PINK AND BLUE EYESHADOW
You know what they say: Two is better than one—and that certainly applies to eyeshadow colors. If you love an eyeshadow look that plays with contrasting hues, you’ll be pleased to hear that pink and blue eyeshadow is trending. Need some inspo? Here’s How to Wear Pink and Blue Eyeshadow.
#4. PINK UNDER-EYES
Perhaps you’d like to ease into the world of pink eyeshadow looks. If so, pink under-eyes could be just the way to do so. Take a pink eyeshadow, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Always Pearly Pink, and drag it along your lower lash line. Leave the rest of your look simple, so your pink accent can be the star of the show! Pretty, right?
#5. FUSCHIA LASH LINE
On the contrary, you can also use the accent technique to create a bold pink eyeshadow look. This option calls for a bright, fuchsia eyeshadow. After painting your lids in a neutral color, use a tapered eyeshadow brush to apply the fuchsia shadow along your upper lash line. Bonus points if you flick it out at the corners! The contrast between your neutral shadow and the vibrant fuchsia will make a statement without you having to say a word.
#6. HOT PINK LIDS
Speaking of bold, bright pink eyeshadow, this look certainly isn’t for the faint-hearted. If you love to have fun with your makeup looks, coat your lids in a hot pink eyeshadow, taking care to blend the color into your crease for a flawless look.
#7. PINK AND YELLOW EYESHADOW
Another pink eyeshadow color combo we love? Pink and yellow! These two shades are more complementary than they are contrasting, making them a sunny duet for the spring and summer seasons. The best part is, there are so many ways to play with both colors. Don’t believe us? Here are 10 Pink and Yellow Eyeshadow Looks That Are So Pretty.
#8. PURPLE AND PINK EYESHADOW
Can’t get enough of coordinating colors? Neither can we! It’s safe to say that pink and purple are a match made in heaven, so using the two to create an eyeshadow look is nothing short of a dream come true! While there are a plethora of ways to try this combo, we’re detailing our favorite below.
Step 1. Prime your eyes. You know what to do!
Step 2. Paint your lids. Use a nude eyeshadow, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Mix and Matte, to color your lids. Blend the color into your crease.
Step 3. Line your lids. This is where we play with color! First, line your upper lash line using a small tapered eyeshadow brush and the L’Oréal Paris Brilliant Eyes Shimmer Liquid Eye Shadow Makeup in Blush Jewel. Then, apply Amethyst Quartz along your lower lash line.
Step 4. Coat your lashes. Apply a volumizing mascara to complete the look.
#9. PINK AND GOLD
It’s hard to think of a classier combo than pink and gold, so why not bring it to your lids? Here’s what to do.
Step 1. Prime your eyes. As always, start by applying an eye primer.
Step 2. Paint your lids pink. Use a shimmering pink eyeshadow, like the L’Oréal Paris Brilliant Eyes Shimmer Liquid Eye Shadow Makeup in Rose Gem, to color your lids. Blend the color into your crease with a fluffy eyeshadow brush.
Step #3. Line your lower lash line. Taking a tapered eyeshadow brush, apply the L’Oréal Paris Brilliant Eyes Shimmer Liquid Eye Shadow Makeup in Crown Gold along your lower lash line. Swoon!
Step #4. Reach for mascara. Layer on the L’Oréal Paris Unlimited Lash Lifting and Lengthening Washable Mascara to finish your look.

This look is perfect for date night or a special occasion since it puts forth all the glamourous vibes.
#11. HOT PINK INNER CORNERS
If you love the idea of using pink eyeshadow for a colorful accent, you’re sure to be a fan of this look. Keep your eyes neutral, applying a nude shadow to your lids, and just a touch of mascara, then play up your inner corners by applying a hot pink shadow! The contrast in tones is great for a quick yet stunning summer eye makeup look.
#12. COTTON CANDY EYES
We’ll always be fond of food-inspired beauty trends, and this cotton candy eyeshadow look is no exception. Here’s how to get it.
Step 1. Prime your eyes. You know the drill.
Step 2. Grab your pink shadow. Smooth a light pink eyeshadow onto your lids, blending the color into your crease.
Step 3. Line your lower lash line. Next, take a violet eyeshadow, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Metallics Eye Shadow in Violet Luster, and use it to line your lower lash line.
Step 4. Pop on some blue. For your final dose of cotton candy, place a pale blue eyeshadow on your inner corners.
Step 5. Apply mascara. Layer on a few coats of the L’Oréal Paris Telescopic Original Waterproof Lengthening Mascara.
#13. PINK AND WHITE EYESHADOW
You didn’t think we were out of color combos, did you? White is a staple for a reason, so it should come as no surprise that it pairs beautifully with pink eyeshadow. There is a multitude of ways to combine the two, whether you opt for white lids and a pink crease, pink lids and white inner corners, or something in-between. Get creative!
#14. SALMON LIDS
Chances are, you’re familiar with the orange eyeshadow craze. So, why not combine two trends into one, and give salmon lids a try? This pink-meets-orange shade is flattering on just about every skin tone, though we particularly love it against olive and deep complexions.
#15. PINK AND SILVER EYESHADOW
Everyone has their preference: silver or gold. If gold isn’t your cup of tea, you can take the look we detailed earlier (#9) and swap out the gold eyeshadow for silver. Use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Silver Sky to take its place.
#16. PINK CREASE
We touched on this in a few specific looks, but using pink eyeshadow as your crease color is a look all on its own. Break out your favorite pink eyeshadow palette, and use a light pink shade to define your crease when pairing it with a champagne lid, or go for something a bit bolder by applying a bright pink shade when you're sporting a colorful lid. There are plenty of ways to give this look a go, but one rule holds true for them all: You need to blend, blend, blend!
#17. MATTE PINK
We talked about shimmer eyeshadow, but mattes deserve a shout out, too! There’s something to be said about a simple, matte lid that has the power to make a statement. While you can opt for any shade in your pink eyeshadow palette that has a matte finish, we’re partial to bold, bright hues, especially on those with dark skin tones. So pretty!
#18. PINK AND BLACK EYESHADOW
It’s no secret that black goes with everything, and pink eyeshadow is no exception. Here’s what to do.
Step 1. Prime your eyes. Apply an eye primer.
Step 2. Grab your pink eyeshadow. Smooth a pink shadow onto your lids.
Step 3. Define your crease. Using a matte black eyeshadow, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Noir Cest Noir, define your crease. Make sure to blend well for a seamless, smoky look.
Step 4. Line your eyes. Use the L’Oréal Paris Matte Signature Liquid Dip Eyeliner, Waterproof, to line your upper lash line.
Step 5. Coat your lashes. Sweep on the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara to top off your look.
#19. BRIGHT PINK HALF UNDER-EYES
If you’re a fan of the statement pink eyeshadow looks we’ve mentioned so far, we’re sure you’ll love this one just as much. All you need to do is use a bright pink eyeshadow to line the inner half of your lower lash line. Yup, that’s it! Keep the rest of your look simple, so the vibrant pink eyeshadow can be the star of your eye makeup.
#20. PINK AND ORANGE EYESHADOW
Like pink and yellow eyeshadow, pink and orange wear beautifully together, especially during the summer months. Here’s our favorite way to wear the two shades.
Step 1. Prime your eyes. Smooth on an eye primer.

#21. PINK AND BROWN EYESHADOW
Just as pink and black pair great together, pink and brown are a perfect match! You can use the two to recreate the look we detailed earlier, swapping your black eyeshadow for a medium brown. This is ideal for those who loved that look, but want something a tad more wearable, especially during the day!
#22. PINK CUT CREASE
Who doesn’t love cut crease eyeshadow looks? This classic yet trendsetting technique isn’t going anywhere any time soon, especially if you revamp it with shades of pink. Learn How to Create a Cut Crease, then experiment with varying shades to personalize your look.
#23. PINK AND NAVY EYESHADOW
You could say that navy has become the new black. More and more, we’re seeing people swap the dark neutral for something ever so slightly outside of the box—and we’re so here for it! Consider doing a pink and navy smoky eye for a 2020 remix on your classic look.
#24. PINK AND GREEN EYESHADOW
There’s one last color combo we have to mention: pink and green! Green eye makeup has become increasingly popular as of late, and when you pair it with pink, you’re guaranteed to have a look that will be trending on Pinterest.
