7 Tips on How to Wear Pastel Makeup
1. Tess Lopez from Toronto (Makeup by Tess)
It's all about balancing the colors, according to Tess. As mentioned earlier, you could be going for this pastel trend for your eyeshadow or nail color - Tess advises balancing out this candy color with a neutral color.
You could go for purples like a gorgeous lavender shade and use it to do your french tips that are just the tip of your nails, and for the base color, you could go for a softer neutral shade like beige.
2. Alison Leong from Vancouver ( Alison*Elle)
Alison wants to tap on your artistic side a tad bit more and make you opt for nail art! You can go for a neutral or darker shade and opt for some pretty floral like a rose.
Dab your base color in circular shapes, and then use a rose highlighter to create a dimensional look. This is where you could have real fun with whichever pastel shade you like and make it spring-ready!
3. Arianne de Guzman from Toronto ( Glitter Geek)
Arianne shares how like many girls out there, she too was hesitant about using pastel shades on her eyes.
But soon, she got enamored by the trend, and her favorite is making abstract lines just above the hood of her eyes so that it gives a peek-a-boo effect when you flutter your eyes open.
She prefers the poppy pastel shades like turquoise green that goes well with most of the skin tones.
4. Dee Thomson from Toronto ( Liner and Glitter and Gloss, Oh My!)
This beauty panelist is a keen admirer of the pastel blues! So much so that she loves to use it entirely to cover her eyelid with a pastel shade.
She gives tips on how to round off this look if you're going for it! Simply use a darker blueliner if you have to over this base and add generous dollops of mascara over it.
A mascara lover herself - she truly loves how your eyes look brighter if you brush some mascara on your lower eyelashes too!
5. Marilou Moles from Ottawa ( Twenty York Street)
Though Marilou has many tips to share in this context - one of the best that you should experiment with is the lipstick pastel tip she wants to share.
We are all used to the shimmery, glossy, and matte lip shades that we all have in full stock in our collections - however, you could enjoy the pastel colors trends in your lipsticks as well.
Go for rosy pinks that are just the perfect color palette to choose from when it comes to lip shades. Make sure your lips are well moisturized and exfoliated, or else the lipstick you wear seems to highlight the cracks.
For the added fun effect - finish off by dabbing some bronzer on your lips just on the right angles of your lips, and you're good to go!
6. Shayna Wiwierski from Winnipeg ( A Pop Of Color)
It's all about the double eyeliner for Shayna! Go for a classic black cat-eyes look, and then add a double whammy with a pop-up pastel shade liner above it. Not only does it bring your eyes out, but it also creates a dreamy look.
Don't forget to pick a neutral base for your eyelid - that is the highlight of a pastel-hued eye look - the neutrals always balance it out.
Mascara is a must always! Summers and springs are all about poppy effects - do not forget to tap those copious amounts of mascara on both your upper and lower lids, and your summer makeup look will be on point as well as summer outfit.
7. Anjali Handa from Toronto ( Rock That Look)
The final beauty panelist to share her expert views on how to rock those blues, purples, and pinks from the enviable pastel color palette is none other than Anjali Handle!
