Pastel Makeup: Not Just for Easter Eggs Anymore
'Tis the season for a new Easter dress, a bonnet trimmed in flowers, songs about new life, and crocuses springing through cracks in the sidewalk. Maybe you're even lucky enough to have a mom/kid/friend who will join you in dyeing Easter eggs every shade of the pastel rainbow, in which case, these pale-hued makeup looks will make sure you look at least as good as your Easter basket. Why should the eggs co-opt all the color?
Set off your Easter eyeshadow with a brow worthy of all the attention. (Hint: hair chalk, take two.)
Apply it extra high on your cheekbones for a really flushed look.
Matte and patted on with a finger, please.
We tried it once so you didn’t have to, and it turns out yellow lipstick is just the nude lip’s cool cousin.
It’s like highlighter. Literal highlighter. You’ll glow.
Skip the heavy eye makeup today and dust blush up to your brow bone.
This color is barely holding on to its status as pink, and that’s how we like it.
It’s a commitment, but so is everything worth having.
Mint Under the Eyes
Use a warm color on your eyelid to contrast with the icy hue below.
Baby Blue Cat-eye
A heavy black cat-eye has no role in the Easter festivities, but you can keep your favorite flick if you just lighten up a bit.
Baby Blue Everywhere
Dust the palest blue eyeshadow above, below, and to the sides of your eyes. Stick to a pastel blue with lots of white in it, and you’ll be safe.
You won’t look like a zombie if you don’t act like a zombie.
Easter eggs look naturally good in this color, and you will, too.
