Spring Makeup Inspiration #3- Pastels
Pastel colors are extremely popular right now for Spring. The gorgeous subtle shades compliment every skin tone and eye color. For this Spring Inspiration I went with a soft and sweet look with a purple hue to compliment my brown eyes. I wanted a dewy look on the skin and went a little more excessive with highlighter on the face to give an angelic look. This look is less dramatic then my usual routine but I loved it. It was a nice change of pace for me to go without eye liner. I was hesitant at first but it grew on me and my husband actually noticed and complimented my makeup, so double bonus!! Check out the look details below!
I prepped the skin with MAC Strobe Cream to give a sheen finish. To cover redness on my face, I used NYX HD Concealer in shade 06 to my problem areas and blended in with a beauty blender. I wanted a sweet natural look so I applied Garnier BB Cream in the shade Medium Deep instead of foundation. This gave my skin a gorgeous glow!
For my eyes I used MAC shadow in the color Digit shown in the photo above (pastel lilac shade) for the eyes. I was generous with the color and blended it all the way up below the brow. I didn’t use a shadow for the crease because I wanted the Pastel Color to really be the focal point of this look. Kept my lashes all natural and used Loreal 24 Volume Mascara in Black. I finished off with Smashbox Bronzer Sunkissed Matte on my cheekbones, around the forehead and along jaw line. For the fabulous shimmer effect, I used Laura Mercier Highlighter above my cheek bones, down the bridge of my nose and to the tip, and slightly on the middle of my forehead and chin. I set my makeup with MAC Fix Plus Spray. I love to use this setting spray when I go for a dewy look and it smells delicious!
This look was definitely out of my comfort zone but I wanted to try something new and different to hopefully inspire others to do the same! Sometimes less is more and soft pastels with a gorgeous glow is now one of my new favorites!
