Hung Vanngo is a wizard with colour. The makeup artist forever pushes the boundaries when it comes to makeup; always experimental in his articulation of wild colour and creative concepts. And today in New York, Vanngo proved his proficiency with colour once more, giving model Barbara Palvin the most incredible smoky pink eye we’ve seen all year.

Both Palvin and Vanngo posted pictures to their respective Instagram accounts detailing the pink, super smoked-out eye. Using  a souped-up hue of pink, Vanngo took the near-neon shade all the way across the socket and up to the brow bone, so it literally sat high under her arches. He then smudged the pop pink under the eye, also, taking the hue from the inner eye to the outer crease. A soft lick of mascara on top and bottom lash and feathery brows, and the eye look was complete.

The rest of her guise was kept relatively low-key and rosy; a slight, pinkish contour on cheeks and soft salmon on lips, it was pink monochromatic magic made sexy à la some very pouty lips and va-va-voom hair.

And whilst Palvin has quite the canvas to carry the look, if you are feeling particularly fiery (and brave), extinguish your boring black and up your smoky eye game with a shade of pink. Pull in back and smoke just across the socket and outwards slightly, or, make like Barbara and go all out. Spicy, either way, did someone say it’s getting hot in here?
