Retro and unflattering? Or cool and fresh? This season’s pink eyeshadow divides opinion.

Think of pink eyeshadow and what comes to mind? Cyndi Lauper? A late night? As seen on the catwalks of House of Holland and Missoni, blush-toned eyecolour is making a comeback this season but does it work for us? Watch the results below.

Feeling brave? Choose a hot pink shade and apply densely with heaps of black mascara for a statement look that’s full of impact.

Pink is a bold choice so it’s understandable if you’re still unsure, but don’t rule it out completely. Opt for muted millennial pink tones that give your eyes a subtle pop instead. 

We used the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Shimmer in Woodstock, £15, and Givenchy Prism Quatour N3, £39.50.
