    “Pink brightens up your face without having to apply too much makeup,” says Clinique’s Global Color Artist Jenna Menard. “It works everywhere, adding warmth to cheeks, eyes, lips and nails.” The key to making this ultra-feminine color wearable for everyday? “Play with different textures, think sheer, and use a highly pigmented product,” advises Menard. Cool shades work well on fair skin, while darker complexions can wear more vibrant hues.
