In denial of the everpresent rain, I rocked a fun pastel eye make-up for three consecutive days, only varying the colors. I was inspired by one of Tanya's everyday looks where she sported MAC Bitter eyeshadow heavily smudged on her lower lashline. It strikes just the right balance between colors and neutrals, plus it's so versatile!
The key here is to keep the upper lid very neutral. I didn't use any eyeliner at the lashes, but I found that using a light pencil (Benefit Eye Bright here) on the lower waterline added a lot of freshness to the look and made it all come together.
For the purple look, I just used a matte pastel blue-toned purple from my CS palette and Covergirl Tapestry Taupe shadow on the lid. Cheeks are most probably contoured with Benefit Hoola and some NYX Angel on the apples, and on the lips we have NYX Tea Rose lippy and some Rimmel Mirrorshine lipgloss in East End Snob.
For the lime green look, I used Inglot Matrix shadow no. 401 with a pearl finish and Inglot no. 397 on the lid (champagne color). Cheeks might have some Benefit CORALista on, and for the lips I just dabbed on some Maybelline lipgloss in Pink Whisper which I'm trying to use up.
For the baby blue look, I used two shades of matte pastel blue from the CS palette again and a golden sparkly Inglot shadow no. 111 on the lid, plus CS Dare blusher (a raspberry shade with golden shimmer) on the cheeks and NYX Tea Rose with clear gloss on top on the lips.
This look was a nice change from my usual routine and I'll be definitely doing it more often now for spring and summer. I'd say the purple was my favorite, although the shadow faded very quickly; oh well, I just need a better one, don't you think? Which pastel color is your favorite? xxx
