I love pastels for my nails, but I always thought they don't suit me as makeup. I've seen some amazing pastel makeup looks online and really wanted to put my Essence pastel liners to use. That's how this look came about. I actually like it, even though it's not my usual cup of tea. I always think that pastels look better on someone with lighter eye color and blonde hair.
I started my eye makeup by applying eye primer and setting it with nude eye shadow. Then I added light brown to the crease as a transition shade. I applied pastel mint shade on the center of the lid. I took pastel lavender shade and applied it in the crease.
Then I added pastel lavender eyeliner in a winged like shape and tried to make it bolder to really stand out. I also used dark purple gel liner and slightly deepened around my lash line, but I tried to make it not very visible. Around my bottom lash line I applied creamy peach eye shadow.
Then I went over it with bright ocher yellow shade. I also used light yellow gold shade in the inner corners. It was time for lots of mascara to ground these pastel shades and finished.
On my face I used very light foundation with matching concealer. I powdered my entire face. On the cheeks I used light cool toned matte pink blush. I also lightly used bronzer to balance it out with light eye shadow colors. For my highlighter I used light champagne gold shade.
As this was pastel look, I also decided to go light with my lip color and chose pastel lavender pink. The whole look is very light in general and may not be for every taste, but I quite like that as a change.
If you think it's too light, you can use bolder lipstick, like I did here. I used bright purple to make my lips stand out a bit more.
So what do you think of pastel makeup? Would you wear it or is it just not for you?
