Exhibit A: 11 Celebs Who Make a Case for Wearing Pink Makeup (and Lots of It)

Few colors look good on everyone, but there's one notable exception: pink. No matter your skin tone or undertones, there is a shade of pink that will flatter you. Pink brings out the natural flush in our skin, and it works to brighten and warm the face.

Pink used to be reserved for the apples of our cheeks or worn as a lipstick, but now it's a red carpet heavy-hitter for all over the face. Hunter Schafer, Zendaya, Doja Cat and more have been spotted rocking the trend. Keep reading for the pink makeup looks we've been obsessing over—and find out how to re-create them yourself.

Draped blush is one of our favorite ways to wear pink makeup. Choose a vivid blush and blend it up toward your temples, and then toward your eyelids. Though it may seem out there, draped blush actually makes you look so fresh-faced (plus, it makes your cheekbones appear higher).
