This season has seen the pretty pastels trend hit the catwalks and trickle into stores worldwide. Make the most of this feminine trend by giving your beauty and fashion routine a work over.
Including pastel hues in your beauty regime is a fine art. The key to keeping it classic is to choose one area to focus on – whether it’s your eyes, lips or nails.
Make your eyes pop by using your favourite pastel tone as an eye shadow. Forgetting the usual blending rules when it comes to your eyes, use just one matte colour to apply on your eyelids – heavier on the outside and fading as you move closer to your eye crease.
Pastel lips are a fun way to make your overall look vibrant and playful. Stain your lips with a pretty pink to keep it girly, but don’t be afraid to use purples or oranges to really spice things up.
Including a range of colours from lilac to blush, and yellow to mint green, pastel colours are the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe. Pair your favourite pastel shade with denim for a classic, sweet look, or incorporate black to keep things modern and chic.
If you aren’t ready to take the pastel plunge, swap block colours out for prints. The warmer, feminine pastel tones in the print will carry over without over-saturating your look completely.
For subtle traces of pastel, why not complement your outfit with a statement bracelet or necklace? Pastel colours are perfect on any skin tone, making it a great colour that will instantly draw attention. In this case, less is not more – so have fun with it and go bold with big statement pieces!
