Spring is in the air! When most of us think of Spring, we think in terms of shimmering shades of pastel-- from pale pink to creamsicle orange and lemon chiffon to robin's egg blue and seafoam green.and every other sweet shade of the rainbow in between. If you love pastel eye makeup, but are feeling a bit apprehensive about trying it on yourself, here's a way to make those super-girly shades look sophisticated — for proof, just take a peek at all the dreamy pastel looks that dominated the spring runways.
When selecting pastel hues to wear for the spring, consider what colors will look best against your skin tone. Light to medium skin tones should stick with lighter shades while darker skin tones can usually get away with more darker, more vibrant colors. Stick with one color at first to get used to the boldness of pastel hues on the eyes. Try a soft pink, lavender, or turquoise as these colors are flattering on nearly any skin tone. To start, keep the focus on the eyes by keeping the rest of the face bare. Apply eyeshadow in a gentle wash of color, so it's semi-translucent with just enough color to make eyes pop. Then add a hint of color to the lips and cheeks to complete the look.
Everyone wants a new look as they enter a new fashion season. Pastel eyeshadows can add vibrancy to any attire, making it the ideal makeup trend for the spring S14 season. Refresh your look for spring with bright pastel eyes-- here's how to rock the hottest S13 spring trend:
