Working a gorgeous eye makeup is no joke and you have to stick to some beauty rules to get it right.

While a smokey eye makeup is the easiest to achieve (since the only rule is that there are no rules; just apply and smudge), pastel eye makeup, on the other hand, is tricky and requires you follow a certain set of rules.

Want to rock the pastel eye makeup look? Here are some rules you must follow:

 

Start with a neutral base

Start with a neutral base

Applying a neutral shade gives you a blank canvas to work on and makes your pastel eye makeup pop. Pack a neutral shade similar to your skin tone or simply apply some concealer on your lids before you apply your eyeshadow.

 

Define your brows

Define your brows

Pastel shades can make you look washed out. In order to avoid this, make sure to fill in and define your brows. This will divide the focus between your lids and brows. Also, whether you are pairing your pastel eyeshadow with a black flick or chucking the liner altogether to let the wishy-washy colours do all the talking, make sure you amp up the lashes to enhance your features.

 

Team it with nude lip colour

Keep the rest of your makeup soft and earthy to let your eyes do all the talking. Instead of playing with colours, you can play with textures and finishes. Paint your pout with a glossy or metallic nude lip colour and let your eyes be the focus of your look.
