No matter, if you are an edgy girl or classy lady, there are easy ways to make ethereal light hues work for you. This season they make their comeback, and just like crayons on white paper, they leave their cheerful mark in the make-up and beauty products. From mint greens to yellow sorbet, here’s how to make color work this season…

Candy Crush  We associate colors, smells and imagery with past experiences. What do pastels remind you of? From scoffing sherbet sweets to doodling in coloring in books, your childhood memories can be recreated (albeit a little more sophisticated!) by playing with the tools in our makeup bag. To put a spin on the everyday eye makeup, what about using a pastel colored eyeliner?  Milky pastels are best paired with a neutral foundation base, soft pinky cheeks and rosy lips. The colors of eyeliner choice are endless – vary from pale yellow, green, light pink to baby blue. Draw it is in the crease of the lid to convey a more whimsical look or opt for a chic cat eye.  To accentuate the eyes and make the color pop, apply an eyelash extension serumand a black mascara (or even a contrasting color to your pastel eyeliner if you’refeeling quirky). If you can’t get enough of the pastels, add some holographictopper to your eyelids…you’ll look out of this world!

How To Nail The Pastel Look?  And the pastel party doesn’t stop there – the candy cotton trend is perfect for every lover of matte, milky shades of nail varnish – and it suits everyone frompale to darker skin types, meaning there’s no excuses for your mani not to look marvelous!  Asides from painting your nails with just one block color, there are tons of nail designs that implement pastels. For instance, the classic French mani has undergone a slight twist this season – instead of a white tip, paint your nails with a pastel toned varnish. Better yet, on a clean base or neutral nail polish, draw on pastel stripes using a thinner brush or a specific nail kit for the perfect, precise designs on your nail canvas.  The colorful mosaic of creamy hues is a great way to round off summer and make the transition to darker matt colors in fall.

    If you love pastel eyeshadow, then you HAVE to try Lancome’s Sugar Baby eye palette. I won it in a contest, and I’ve used it every day since! I LOVE it! It has every color from cotton candy pink, to lavender, green glitter, yellow, baby blue, and even a shimmery white. I love them ALL! And the brush is SO soft! I use the darker purple shimmer, (there’s a lavender one, TOO!) more than any, and I mix them with other shades, and they blend really well! Love it! xoxoJJ
