Trying out beauty trends: Rose tinted

Rose tinted? What is that?

At Bora Aksu, Altuzarra and Simone Rocha, a wash of prettiest pink gave a rose-like flush to cheeks, eyes and lips on the catwalk. Sheer coverage, soft shades and delicate application made for an ethereal beauty which felt utterly modern yet completely wearable at once. Elsewhere pink made its comeback in the form of magenta colour-pop lips at H&M, fuchsia liner at Oscar de la Renta and softly petal-stained mouths at Temperley London. To think pink has never felt more apt.

Rose tinted, to me at least, sounds very good in theory, but it really isn’t in practice. It works well for those who are not too fair and who have a light hair color because it just adds onto the ‘innocence’ of it. For me, however, it doesn’t really work. My hair is as black as it could be, my brows are really dark although they’re kinda sparse but they are not anywhere close to being blonde. My lips are also naturally very purple, so for them to look rose tinted too I would have had to block out all color with a concealer and then added something pink on top. I used the most pink lipstick I had in the picture below and it still looks purple-ish.

I used a dusty rose shade from a blush palette and used a fluffy brush to add it around my eyes and on my cheeks and it honestly made me look bruised or sunburned. Pink is not my shade at all so it won’t really work out no matter what I do. It was a fun look to do though, it looked a bit more intense in real life, my camera didn’t really want to pick up on the pink shade so it just looks darker than it really is. Same goes for the lip color, but I guess that’s kinda a given.

Would you want to try a look like this? Or rather, could you pull it off? I feel like it really takes a special kind of person to pull off things like this, all of the trends I have tried so far have been kinda drastic or extreme and not really for every day use, only for special occasions.

Is there any beauty trends you have been curious about and never really tried? Let me know! I’m always looking for inspiration or new weird things to try out. I always have so much fun when doing posts like this.

    Oh wow it looks like you’ve been hit in the face, but I agree it would look better if you were pale & had light hair!
    Have you seen the Christmas brows trend? It looks crazy, but festive

    I’d this look is for a very specific complexion… I look horrible with pink eye shadow myself… Just because it’s a trend, it doesn’t mean everyone should try it!

    I like pink shimmery eyeshadows but a pink like this does not suit me at all, I just look sickly🙈😂 x

    As a wearer of lots of pink, it does work on fair (read: ghost white) complexions; you just need to find shades with good color payoff, and make sure you’ve got a good base. Now I wouldn’t wear it like in the picture because I (obviously) like the bruised look, and I’m not big on the “soft shades”.

    I would also say that it might take some time to figure out, I went through a phase where I’d given up on pink altogether, but clearly, I was using the wrong shades/tools/techniques.

    That being said, if we’re being honest, doesn’t pink worn also under the eye always end up giving you kind of a sickly look? (Thus the basis of its appeal!)

      Yeah it kinda does give a sickly look! But red can do that too if you keep it close enough to the lash line. I just prefer cooler tones like green, blue or a cool toned purple. I don’t think pink looks good on me no matter which intensity. I’m sure it looks good on you though, you always nail your eye looks (or well at least those you upload pictures of).
