It can be tricky to keep up with makeup trends, but a pop of pink never goes out of style. In fact, the classic color was seen everywhere on the Spring/Summer 2016 runways, adorning cheeks at Michael Kors, lips at Rodarte and even eyelids at Jill Stuart.

Further proof that the hue is hot: Gigi Hadid took the look off the catwalk and onto the red carpet, sporting smoky pink eye shadow at the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition launch in February.

The good news is that you don’t have to be a model to pull off the look. The playful palette is versatile and can work on just about anyone, provided you choose one focal point for your color: either eyes or lips or cheeks. Use a subtle tone for a sweet daytime look or vamp it up and go vivid for an evening out.

Ready to try the trend for yourself? Here, let’s get you started.
