Pierpaolo Piccioli’s PP pink is the colour of the season. Since Piccoli’s Valentino’s Autumn/Winter Pink PP collection debut, the signature hot pink shade has been spotted at every major star-studded event – and worn by celebrities like Anne Hathaway, Florence Pugh, Sebastian Stan, Nicola Peltz Beckham and many more. If like us, you find yourself lusting after a hot pink outfit of your own, but if a couture gown by Piccioli is a little out of your price range, then we have the next best thing. We’ve selected our favourite pink beauty picks in the iconic shade so that you can wear the famous hue without needing a custom designer fit. From sparkling eyeliners and lacquered liquid lipstick to a cream blush, there are so many ways to incorporate PP Pink into your look…
1. The Metallic Eyeliner
For those that love to make a statement with their eye makeup, GIVENCHY Phenomen’Eyes Brush Tip Eyeliner is the perfect soft pop of pink makeup for you. The GIVENCHY Eyeliner has a glittering metallic finish that makes your eyes sparkle, and when I wore this at work, I had so many compliments! The hot pink shade puts a modern twist on the classic black wing eyeliner and is a surprisingly wearable and chic look.
2. The Lacquered Lipstick
You can achieve a pop of bold PP pink makeup with just one quick swipe of the Shiseido LacquerInk LipShine in the shade 302 – Plexi Pink. The high-shine formula plumps your lips with its two-in-one design that starts as reflective vinyl and wears off to soft lip stain throughout the day.
3. The Sweet Fragrance
If wearing bright pink makeup is out of your comfort zone, you can still experience the PP pink trend through your fragrance choices. The Parfums de Marly’s Oriana bottle is a luxurious and subtle statement of PP pink that only you’ll know about. A secret spritz of Oriana adds a soft touch of PP pink to your look without having to worry about wearing bright colours. Aside from its hot pink bottle, Oriana is a deliciously sweet fruity-floral fragrance that boasts a cosy muskiness with hints of fluffy pink marshmallows topped with a dollop of Chantilly Cream; if you love a dessert-inspired scent this is a must for your collection.
4. The Cream Blush
The easiest way to wear the trending colour PP pink with makeup is through your blush. The most understated option in this lineup is the Daniel Sandler Watercolour Crème Rouge Blusher in the shade ‘Hot Pink’, which adds the softest touch of PP pink to your makeup. The creamy formula has a unique melting texture that blends flawlessly into the skin for a soft and natural flush of pink.
