Pastels are everywhere this season in both fashion and beauty. Whether it's a peach blouse or a lilac eye, pastels almost always make an appearance in the spring, regardless of what year it is. Looking to implement this palette into your daily routine? Here are 3 easy ways you can play with pastels, without breaking the bank.
Peach is flattering to every skin tone because it resembles a natural flush. All you have to do is figure out the right tone of peach to flatter your complexion.
Fair - We recommend a softer hue with hints of pink, like IT Cosmetics Airbrush Blush Stain - Sweet Cheeks.
Medium - Go for pigments with more of an orange tint, try Jouer Cosmetics Tint in Fawn.
Darker - Complemented by a peach with a redder base, we recommend By Terry Blush Terrybly - Ultimate Radiance Blush in Beach Bomb.
Say it with a Scarf
If you are new to pastel hues or if there is a new one you want to try, start with a scarf. Colors take a while to get used to, and may not all complement your coloring. Before investing in an expensive dress or jacket, test the trend with something smaller. If you aren't a scarf fan, this can also be accomplished with a necklace, clutch, or ballet flat.
I Have an EYE-dea
Pastel eyes! Eyeshadow is a lovely way to pose in pastels, and there is a flattering way to wear every shade! The trick to looking trendy and not … from the 80's, is to combine the pastel with a neutral shade. Here are some examples to get you going.
- Blend a frosty pink lid into a light grey crease, try ILIA Multi-Stick in Tenderly.
- Combine mint green shimmer with a caramel brown eyeliner, try Vapour Organic Beauty Mesmerize Eye Shimmer Treatment in Smitten.
- Mix a classic black smoky eye with a baby blue highlight, try By Terry Ombre Blackstar Cream Eyeshadow in Paradise Island.

Shop Hair here.
Sleek hair is all the rage this season, and from what we saw at Fashion Week for fall/winter, this trend is not going away. One of our favorite sleek looks, that has withstood the test of time, is a pony tail.
We love a pretty pony because it's work-appropriate, great for all textures - including fine hair - and a great way to get a second day out of your already-styled hair. Ready to rock this runway-ready revolution? Here are step-by-step instructions for this easy up-do, and the products that will get you there.
1. Prep Your Mane
You perfected your hair for work yesterday, but 24 hours later it's looking a little … sad. Use Mason Pearson's Handy Mixture Bristle & Nylon Brush to detangle and soften your locks, in preparation for your pony.
2. Tame Your Tail
Run T3's Single Pass 1" Flat Iron over your ends and address any noticeable kinks in your 'do. Don't spend too much time on this step, as the majority of your locks will be gathered and unseen. One minute tops!
3. Smooth Your Strands
Add a couple drops of Mixed Chicks Hair Silk from root to tip. This light reflecting serum not only tames fly-aways, it also gives you the added shine and vibrancy this sleek look requires.
4. Repair Your Hair
One of the things we love about a sleek pony is that is allows you to throw on a treatment or leave-in conditioner to repair hair while it's up. We recommend klorane's Leave-In with Mango Butter. It prevents further breakage and repairs without weighing hair down. Concentrate this product at the ends of your hair to keep the 'tail' of your pony streamlined.
4. Flipping Out
Flip hair upside down, brushing repeatedly from root to tip toward the floor. Make a fist, and place it against the top of your head, this is where your pony will 'sprout' from.
5. Gather the Herd
Open your fist and begin brushing your hair into it, collecting it for the hair tie. Depending on hair length, you may have to move your fist towards the nape of your neck, in order to collect all your stands in the tie.
6. Rein It In
Using the hair tie of your choice, secure your now-collected hair. You may choose to leave the tie as-is, or you can create a more polished look by wrapping a thin segment of hair from your tail around the tie and securing it with a bobby pin towards the underside of your ponytail.
7. Polish the Pony
Now that your pony is in place, you'll want to tame baby hairs and frizz. Use GLOSS Moderne High-Gloss Serum along the hairline and sides to perfect your sleek look, enhance shine and tame fly-aways.
8. Solidify Your Style
Finish off this look with a pass of your favorite hairspray. We recommend Serge Normant Meta Luxe Hairspray to ensure hold and protect hair against damaging and dulling UV rays.
We hope you enjoy this styling 'how-to' from b-glowing.com!
