Pink eyeshadow, +45% on Pinterest

At bridal fashion week this year, pink eyeshadow was all the rage, and the Pinterest search traffic followed suit. We already love rosy eyeshadow for day to day, but for a wedding, the shade adds even more romance.

As seen here, light pink shadow is a great contrast to black mascara; it helps make your lashes appear longer and fuller.
@thebridalmakeupco
You have to be careful, because pink shadow all around the eye could make you look a little sickly. But when it's a diffused, dusty rose with a hint of sparkle paired with rosy lipstick and fresh skin, it's natural and so, so pretty.
@makeupshayla
Bright fuchsia lipstick steals the show, while soft pink shadow subtly complements in the background.
This matte pink from Maybelline can be swept liberally across the lids to create a dreamy flush around the eye.

Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow in Nude Glow, $3.99, available at Maybelline.
This Bite multistick can do it all, but we like it as a shadow because it's super-creamy and blendable. You can swipe it from your lashline up to your brow with your fingers for a sheer tint of pink, or layer it on the lid for a deeper rose.

Bite Beauty Multistick in Macaroon, $24, available at Sephora.
The best of the best in terms of pale pink shadow, this is the exact Lancôme pressed powder that makeup artist Fiona Stiles used on Lily Collins' eyes at the Golden Globes. And that look was nothing short of amazing.

Lancôme Color Design Sensational Effects Eye Shadow in Pink Zinc, $21, available at Lancôme.

Berry lip, +71% on Pinterest

According to Pinterest data, berry lips are the new red lip. It lets you add a little drama to your big day, without pulling a runaway bride move.

And the berry doesn't have to be blackberry: This shade's a bit of a softer raspberry, and still so good.
@yarashahidi
Yara Shahidi makes the case for winged eyeliner and rich berry lips.
@gabbywebbmakeup
A berry that skews more pink and less purple is an easier way into the trend. The best way to wear it? With a flower crown, of course.
The vampy dark lip flatters all skin tones, and e.l.f. has a tone of shade options to choose from, whether you're into rich berries, dark cherries, or blood-reds.

e.l.f Moisturizing Lipstick in Razzle Dazzle, $3.85, available at Jet.
Wild with Desire in Russian Roulette — name a sexier lipstick.

RMS Beauty Wild With Desire Lipstick in Russian Roulette, $28, available at RMS.
This shade goes well with the merlot served at the reception.

Melt Cosmetics Lipstick in Dark Room, $19, available at Melt Cosmetics.

Cream blush +196% on Pinterest

Apparently, the people pinning are very over powder blush and looking for a glossier cream or gel finish. For cooler, drier days, we're all about dewy cheek color, too.
@glowby_aba
You can use a cream stick or gel-based blush as a flush of color on the apples of your cheeks, or try a shade slightly darker than your skin tone right under your cheekbones, for a blendable contour.
@thebridalmakeupco
If you blend the cream shadow outward, away from the center of the face, it naturally defines your structure.
@musegold
Model Miski Muse shows how to do blush draping right. The technique, sweeping blush from the temples down to the apples of your cheeks, gives the illusion of high and sharp cheekbones.
This blush has garnered a cult following, and in four sheer shades (light pink, bright fuchsia, dusty mauve, and orangey brown), there's one that'll work for you. To pick, just check out these mesmerizing Glossier model tutorials.

Glossier Cloud Paint, $18, available at Glossier.
For a more dramatic pop, we like this tiny little tube because it's super-pigmented and stays all day. You can dab onto the high points of your cheeks and blend well; then, add some to your lips, too.

CHOSUNGAH 22 So Tiny Lip & Cheek Face Color, $7, available at Sephora.
NARS' Multiple stick is another one of those fail-safe, flatters-everyone, makeup-bag workhorses. It adds natural color and contour, and you can easily blend it on with your fingers right before you rush to walk down the aisle.

NARS Matte Multiple in Siam, $39, available at Sephora.
