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.
