CANDY HUES :

11  You can brilliantly play with two pastel shades together like Cool Mint green and peach, or Baby Blue and Pearl Pink. Take your pick, and start with a cream base for the upper eyelids till the crease in either Mint or Blue. Top it off with a powder tint for a soft glow. If you don’t wanna go for chalk finish, use a bit of shimmer and you are good to go. Don’t forget to line the lower lashline with the same pastel shade. Mascara plays a vital role for this look because it opens up the eye and avoids looking completely washed out. Finish it off with a vibrant creamy lip-gloss in either peach or pink. Tip – Switch your nude and neon nail polish to a paler version of the super brights. Have fun with this season’s gorgeous corals and lilacs.

PERKY PINK :

Apply a layer of cream-based pale pink eyeshadow to the entire upper eyelids to the crease and inner corner and dab powdered pink tint using fingers in the outward away for the eye. Apply a thin line of black eyeliner on your upper lashline. Top it off with loads of mascara, a pastel pink is slightly harder to pull off so dab a bit of foundation onto your lips to remove any dark pigments and brush on a pale pink lipstick.

LAVENDER LOVE :
