Look Familiar? The 10 Most Popular Makeup Looks on Pinterest

Updated 09/23/16

In our story on the date night makeup men prefer, the classic combination of a red lip + black cat-eye was the least favorite. So it was pretty funny to turn around and find out that same look is one of the most popular on Pinterest’s beauty boards. To us, it’s proof that ‘guy hot’ and ‘girl hot’ really might mean two different things. The two other looks that were also a hit among pinners? Super-defined lashes with a clear glossy lip and totally natural, barely-there makeup.

For this story, we lowered the minimum repin criteria to 500; the minimum for popular hair pins was 2,000, because hair photos are more popular on Pinterest than, well, almost anything.

We also weeded out some of the more outrageous makeup (ones that you’d be hard-pressed to categorize as “beauty” looks), and narrowed it down to the 10 most popular and prettiest makeup pins Pinterest has to offer! Keep scrolling to see them all.

This pin was quite literally the black sheep of the bunch, and it makes sense why it’s been so popular. Who knew that a deep purple-black lip with white blond hair could look entirely chic and not goth in the least.

There’s just something about a glossy red lip and black cat-eye on a brunette, even if the men don’t think so.

2,267 Pins.

It’s no secret that Lily Collins is a beauty icon, and with these filled-in brows, a killer daytime smoky eye, and natural nude lip, it’s no wonder this pic has been repinned from our own Pinterest page over 2200 times.
