13 Pastel Cosmetics We Need for Spring
While we adore the matte burgundy lips and berry-toned blushes of the colder months, there is something so refreshing about spring's lighter hues. Sunnier weather means stopping piling on the heavy makeup you use to combat winter skin woes, and this year's new crop of pastel spring makeup will bring out your glow. From Tiffany blue eyeliner to brilliant pink blushes, here are our top picks for pastel spring makeup products.
