Red and Pink Eyeshadows

Red and pink are popular colours for our lips, but we seldom think of them for our eyes. It’s a shame because they can create a romantic effect and subtly enhance our peepers. In the spirit of summer, there is no better time than the present to try red or pink eyeshadow—or both!

When you think about it, pale pink isn’t that different compared to some of your peach eyeshadows. This soft pink is a perfect starting point if you’re not quite ready for electric pink shadow right off the bat.
