Why You Actually Want To Get 'Pink Eye' This Spring

Things are coming up rosy in the beauty world.

“Pink eye” is one of the latest trends taking over the beauty world, and thankfully it has nothing to do with dirty makeup brushes or poor hygiene.

This trend is all about using rosy pink and red pigments on the eyes, and it can be as subtle or bold as you like. We saw it pop up on both the Valentino spring 2018 couture and ready-to-wear runways, and stars like Emma Stone and Kerry Washington have tried it out on the red carpet. 

So whether you’re into experimenting with makeup or not, there’s probably a shade of pink for you. If you need a little inspiration, we’ve got you covered. Just check out the pictures below:

    Hung Vanngo created this bold red eyeshadow look on Emily Ratajkowski for the Warner Bros. Golden Globes after party on Jan. 7, 2018. The key to pulling off a look like this is to keep everything else fairly minimal -- Ratajkowski's dress and hair are simple, letting the makeup shine.
