Pink has been a popular color for… centuries. Yet it seems to be having another recent comeback. Just take one look at the runways or even your local makeup store. Pink is everywhere again, but it’s not the hue that is calling our attention. It’s how it is being worn with all new twists.

No more do we just stick to a soft pink lip color! Now there are long-lasting lip stains, eye shadow hues, blushes, and accessories to complete your look for any occasion.
Why Do We Love Pink?
This color is great to add back into your style routine for several reasons. The primary is that it is truly a universal color. While certain reds and oranges can have a harsh effect on different skin tones, pinks have enough color that is not too shocking to compliment any skin tone or hair combination.
Not only can it blend well, but pink can be statement making too. Just look to Megan Rapinoe, the forward from the US Women’s National Soccer Team who made headlines this past World Cup for her athletic prowess, political stances, and yes, her hair! Her look became so iconic, that it actually inspired stylists Riawna Capri and Joey Perrotti to name a new hue after her: Rapinkoe.

While many of us can’t afford to splurge on the same products used and worn on the runway, thankfully many bargain brands have also joined in on the pink movement. You can get perfectly pink pouts with ink crayon lipsticks or achieve a nice iridescent glow with these tinted highlighters. Whatever your style choice, you’re sure to make Elle Woods proud!
