Pink lipstick is practically a right of passage. Whether you’re into matte pink lipstick or you’re more of a sheer girl, chances are, you’ve got at least a few tubes of fuchsia and rose colored lip products in your makeup bag. With so many options for lipstick colors, it only makes sense that you should try out a few different looks entirely, right? Below are a few of our favorite makeup looks that center around a pink lip. From colored liner to rosy cheeks, here’s what to pair with pink lipstick.

Lots of Lashes: A metallic pink lip screams glamour, which means you’ve got little choice but to pair it with tons of lashes. For a night out, go for full on falsies, but for daytime, simply swipe on an extra layer of mascara to really make your eyes pop.

Colored Liner on Top: Considering how on-trend colored eyeliner is, we couldn’t love this idea more. Apply a matte pink lipstick, then finish the fun look by lining the bottom lash line with bright blue eyeliner. If you’re really bold, go the extra mile and use glitter eyeliner on the top lash line for an extra “wow” factor.
