Every October we rack our brains to find new and meaningful ways to wear pink in solidarity with those who raise awareness for breast cancer. If you’re a beauty gal or guy, it could be as simple as incorporating it into your beat. But if you’re going for impactful, your typical pink matte lipstick might be starting to feel overdone.
From headpieces and pretty pouts, to over-the-top makeup trends, there are standout ways to incorporate pink into your beauty every day of October. It’s not just for Wednesdays anymore. This Breast Cancer Awareness Month, show your support for finding a cure by adding these five fun beauty components to your look.
Eclectic Eye Makeup
Euphoria-inspired makeup has been the latest go-to for eclectic makeup and it lends some fun to your run of the mill pink shadow. Add pink embellishments by way of stars, crystals and pearls to create more depth. Every day in October you can try different pink shadows and liners in a mix of hues in the bright color.
Pink Nails Weekly
Going pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month is easy and fun to do with new and funky pink nail art each week. You can try BCA specific designs or experiment with other fun art each week to express your support for brining awareness. If you're really dedicated to it, you could change them up daily or every few days by using pre-painted press-ons.
Upgraded Pink Lips
Wearing pink lips is the one of the easiest and typical ways to rock pink for Breast Cancer Awareness. It'll always be a great way to show support, but it's also simple to take that pout up a notch. Add some lip bling by way of pink metallic gems or pink crystals. You can also use several pink hues to give an ombre effect, do two-tone pink lips with different top and bottom colors, or try a Geisha look with a single pink strip down the center. Every day it could be something different and outstanding.
Pink Protective Styles
From pink faux locs to rosy cornrows, your hair can make the statement for you this October. With the magnificent colored units, semi and demi-permanent hair colors, and temporary hair color masks, you can give pink just for BCA month. Of course you can also add a touch of blush to just the front, center, or back of the hair permanently and camouflage it with the rest of your hair when you need to keep it under wraps. But if you can go pink, do it up. It's a hair color that complements melanin-rich skin tones.
Dope Pink Hair Accessories
Let some bold pink hair accessories replace your wordy bejeweled hair clips this month. Yandy Smith opted for flowers in the bright color to adorn her hair for Curlfest Atlanta. You can do flowers, beads, clips, crystals—there's no limit. This beautiful Raw Quartz Crystal Prism Hair Comb
from MystiqueCreations is a great pink option to adorn your crown like the queen that you are. You can add it to a side flip, braided styles, or loose curls. It says "I stand with Breast Cancer Awareness" while also showing off how fly you are.
