When my younger sister began to exude similar traits, I concluded that this ritual must be a vital one, in every girl’s journey into womanhood.

The chances are high that the average girl has about three or four tubes of pink lipstick.

However, it is not enough to have them, it is trite to know how to combine this color with your various outfits.

Hence, this article seeks to provide information on what to wear with your favorite pink lipsticks.

Thus can either mean what outfit to wear with a pink lipstick or what sort of makeup to wear with pink lipstick? For makeup, you can wear your pink lipstick on its own, while making sure that the base of your skin is flawless and your eyebrows are groomed.

What Makeup to Wear with Pink Lipstick

When it comes to makeup, pink is a versatile color.

Hence, it is not a hassle to combine it with a seemingly wide range of makeup tricks and techniques, that will give an overall amazing look. 

For starters, you can wear your pink lipstick on its own, while making sure that the base of your skin is flawless and your eyebrows are groomed.

Make sure to begin by cleansing and toning your skin with a cleanser. 

Apply a moisturizer and dab it into your face.

Once you complete this process, apply a primer to your skin.

You need to select a primer, according to your skin type. Dry-skinned people need to use hydrating primers.

This is because they need to get in as much moisture, as possible and prevent their makeup from developing cracks and fine lines. 

On the other hand, oily-skinned people need to wear mattifying primers. This will help to control the excess oil and sebum that their skin secretes, and prevent their makeup from running, in a short period.

Apply a foundation that fits your skin tone and blend properly. 

Apply a little hair gel or brow tamer to your eyebrows with a spoolie or mascara wand.

Brush the hairs upwards and make sure the hairs stay in place while the gel dries down. Apply a little translucent powder over your entire face and apply your pink lipstick.

This is one of the simplest ways to wear pink lipstick.

In addition to having a smooth base and groomed eyebrows, pink lipstick looks good when it’s worn alongside lots of lashes. If you’re wearing it at night, you can go all out and wear a pair of false lashes.

Line your lash line with cruelty-free lash glue, place the false lashes very close to your natural lashes and you’re good to go.

If you’re wearing pink lipstick in the daytime, you can apply a volumizing or lengthening mascara to your eyelashes to make them pop. 

Also, you can add some flair to it by wearing a colored liner or a subtle smokey eye.

Apply a blue, silver, or green eyeshadow to your lower lash line to make your pink lips pop. For an evening look choose a sheer pink lipstick with dramatic eye makeup such as ‘smokey eyes’.

Applying smokey eye makeup is easy.

With a brush apply black eyeshadow on the outer edge of the eye. For the center choose a grey eyeshadow and for the inner corner a bright eyeshadow such as creme or silver.

The tree colors should have a smooth transition, you don’t want to have the effect of color blocking. Line your waterline with white eyeliner to make the whites of your eyes pop and accentuate your lashes with some mascara.

Apply blush that fits you, or matches your lip color to your cheeks, to highlight your features and complete the look.
