We're loving the retro vibe going on in 2018 with neon makeup and throwback fashion. Eye makeup has gone super experimental with crazy brow art, metallic shades and kooky liner placement. Now it's eyeshadow's turn for a spotlight moment and we're talking bright pink. That's right, shadow's gone back to the 80s in a big way this summer. Rihanna and Gigi Hadid have both recently tried out the fun fashion and top cosmetic brands such as MAC are all about hot pink right now too. The vibrant shade has made waves on the catwalks at the top fashion weeks, so it's officially on-trend.

Rihanna showed how to do the natural pink look on her Instagram page, sharing a selfie of her subtle eyeshadow with a nude lip. The singer's beauty brand Fenty Beauty also shared a photo of their gorgeous pink shadow and liner, posting: "On Sundays... we also wear pink!"
