Pink and Red Makeup Trends Blooming Out of Hollywood

If you’re familiar with color theory, you probably know that when matching colors, rarely is it a good idea to put adjacent colors on the color wheel together. Yet that is exactly what’s happening in Hollywood, and it looks amazing!

Unexpected chemistry

Pink and red are making a fairly odd, yet beautiful couple in the Hollywood beauty scene.

From Fashion Week to the 2018 Met Gala, the pink and red makeup duo is making a stunning appearance. Lily Collins did not disappoint in either her fabulous evening entire or makeup look. In case the duet between her eyes and lips wasn’t enough, the red teardrop on her cheekbone transforms her from gala-ready to Byzantine masterpiece!

A transition to Spring

Consider this a launch into the revamp of your spring wardrobe. Because as it turns out, these two hues can live quite harmoniously together. Just look at Blake Lively’s Met Gala ensemble. The pink and red tease in her makeup look is in perfect synchrony to her evening gown!

For amazing color payoff try one of Illamasqua’s Powder Eyeshadows. The intense pigments are not only long-lasting but can also be used as contour and blusher! A sweep across the lid will give you the sultry smoking look, just like Lively.


Get long-lasting wear and day-long protection with Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick Trio Set. This lipstick gives protection for sun exposure and fabulous color payoff! What more could you ask for in a bullet lipstick?

Pop a hue or two of pink and red makeup onto your vanity this season! Play with finishes, dust on a shimmery pigment, and double-duty your cream blush! These two colors aren’t just meant to be flaunted on the most romantic day of the year, they can be some of the best tints and shades in your makeup bag year-round. You may just turn a head or two!
