Pastels are synonymous with spring. The soft shades show up in gardens, on Easter eggs and in our wardrobes, providing a welcome change from the dark, somber tones of the colder months. But don’t stop there: pastels are also a big makeup trend this season.
Pale pink, lavender, baby blue, mint, soft yellow, peach…there are so many gorgeous pastels to play around with. They look beautiful when applied to one feature or brushed on the entire face. Forget the dated pastels of yore, today’s shades offer soft, sheer washes of color and rich, heavily pigmented options for dramatic looks. No matter the formulation, pastel makeup adds an ethereal finish that mermaid and unicorn fans will find irresistible. The charm is only increased when pastel makeup is combined with a pastel outfit.
It’s officially spring, so don’t delay in celebrating with pastel makeup. Look for your favorite sugared almond shades and take inspiration from the runways on how to wear them.
