Trend to try: pastels
I want you to close your eyes and think of autumn and winter. Think of the colours associated with them. Picture the clothes you’ll wear; the make-up you’ll use.
Did you see a whole lot of charcoal? Navy? Burgundy? Perhaps even some eggplant? Well, prepared to have your mind blown, because word from the runways is that pastel hues are going to be a welcome addition to your regular autumn/winter colour staples.
Yep, soft creamy pinks, purples, blues, greens and yellows are going to be amongst the hot shades to add to your autumn/winter make-up kit. Here are three easy-peasy ways to embrace the pastel trend like a pro:
1) ON YOUR EYES
Sweep a soft, shimmery pastel shadow over your lids right up to your brow bone. Or if that’s a bit much for you, try applying the shadow along your top lash line for an instant hit of subtle colour.
Try: Mirenesse Superlong Wear Gel Mineral Face Colour in Pink Halo.
2) ON YOUR LIPS
A slick of a pastel gloss or lipstick will liven up any make-up look and a matte finish always looks fab with a lighter hue. Stick to pinks and peaches for something more classic, or opt for a lilac lippy if you want to stand out from the crowd.
Try: MAC Lipstick in Rose Lily.
3) ON YOUR CHEEKS
Apply it to the apples of your cheeks, sweeping upwards towards the top of your ears for a flushed-yet-feminine finish. Just make sure to apply it lightly at first and build it up if necessary as pastel blushes can be quite pigmented.
Try: Yves Saint Laurent Blush Radiance in No. 8.
