If you’re a girlie girl and like to keep things fairytale-ish, the pastel makeup trend might just be up your alley. Dominated by soft pinks, pale turquoise and light lavender, the pastel makeup trend can be worn on your cheeks, eyes and lips. If you want to keep things rosy, the eyes can be pale pink, the cheeks a light hue of baby pink and lips a glossy peach. But if you’re looking to stand out with the pastel makeup trend, keep the rest of your face nude and just add a touch of icy blue eyeshadow on the eyes. So gorgeous!
Where did we see it?
Of course, we knew pastel makeup was going to make it big when Millennial Pink was everywhere. Then we had the Golden Globes where several stars from Emma Stone to Zoe Saldana wore pinky peach makeup and rocked pastel makeup on the red carpet. This is where it all began and there’s been no stopping ever since.
How to get the perfect pastel makeup look?
All you really have to do is add a couple of pastel makeup products to your vanity kit. If you want to get a peachy pink pastel makeup look, first finish off your base makeup like you’d usually do. Next, go with the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette, French Rose and use the pink on your eyelids. Post that, add some Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Shimmer Brick, Pink on your cheeks. Finally, go with the Lakmé Absolute Luxe Matte Lip Colour With Argan Oil, Freshly Pinked. If you think the lips look overtly intense, mix the colour up with a bit of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly so it looked paler to achieve the pastel-like look.
