Spring Makeup Look: A Pastel Dream

Playing with pastels for a spring makeup look!


I know, I know, I've told you multiple times that pastels were not really my thing! But, inspired by the spring blooms, I decided to get out of my comfort zone and do an all-pastel makeup look. What's makeup for if not be creative, experiment and have fun?

I decided to go for cool pastels: I think I can pull those off on my eyes, but I have a much harder time with warm ones such as yellows, peaches and warm pinks. Most of what I used was featured in my recent Spring Makeup Edit. Here's the list:



- Almay Shadow Softies in Lilac (inner lid) and Crème Brulée (brow bone)

- Lancôme Color Design Infinité in Enduring Vert (outer lid)

- Stila Smudge Stick in Periwinkle on upper and lower lash line plus lower waterline

- An old discontinued liquid eyeliner from Kiko in a thin line close to the upper lash line to balance out the lilac liner and make it a bit less dramatic (I kind of looked like a fish with eye infection before going for the double-line). It's hard to see on the pictures, but it's a black with green reflections. Adding a thin line of black or dark liner is a great way to wear crazy colored liners that could make your eyes look weird by themselves!

- Lancôme Grandiôse Mascara

- Benefit Gimme Brow

- theBalm TimeBalm concealer

- YSL Touche Eclat foundation (this is the "old" version, not the brand new reformulation)

- Benefit Posie Tint on the cheeks

- NYX Butter Gloss in Eclair on the lips

I did feel a bit self-conscious throughout the day when wearing this look - mostly because of the light lilac eyeliner I think - but overall, I think it worked quite well. What do you think?

What shades do you like to wear in the spring? Do you experiment with makeup, trying to wear colors you're not naturally attracted to?
