Spring Pastels


It's old news by now. Pastels are in this spring. We've been through florals, we've been through animal prints, so why not strip back to something more basic, something more classic.

But no one said that pastels have to stay in our wardrobe right?
Why not put pastels in our makeup bag?


Make up plays an essential part when considering our overall look - after all, we wear makeup like we wear clothes, right? So this seasons "hot colours" (or in this case, cool colours) shouldn't be confined to what shoes are on our feet or what bag is on our shoulder. 

And it doesn't even have to come at a cost! I've found that many of the "drugstore" brands have more pastels in their collections than the higher end brands do!



17 Candy Collection.

Benefit High Beam Highlighter and Benefit Blusher in Throbb.

MUA Eye Dust in Green Shade 3 and Benefit High Brow Pencil.


OPI Nail Lacquer in Fiercely Fiona.
Accessorize Nail Polish Exotic Brights Mint Whisper.
Accessorize Nail Polish Exotic Brights Candy Pink.
Accessorize Nail Polish With Love Lilac Echo.
Barry M Lip Paint in Baby Pink.
MUA Eyeshadow Palette in Pretty Pastels.


Will you be adding Pastels to your spring make up routines?
