How to wear pastel makeup

As a girl with a natural tan, I used to shy away from wearing pastels on my face because they tend to wash me out. Recently I’ve started to incorporate pastels into my makeup through eyeliner. I love brighter pastels like turquoise because it works well for a variety of skin tones. ’60s makeup is something I’m obsessed with lately, so I was inspired by Michael Kors Spring 2013 runway look: a minimal face paired with banana liner. The look is fun and retro, but also totally wearable.

To get the look, I apply the eyeliner just slightly above the “hood” of my eyelid for a little peek of colour when my eyes are open. I softly highlight the top lash line with a matte white eyeliner. For the rest of the face, just add a creamy sheer bronzer to contour and a highlighter on the high planes of the face (tops of cheekbones, down the nose, above the lips and chin). Finish off with a sheer my-lips-but-better lipstick.

Products used: Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in “Turquoise,” Annabelle Kohl Eyeliner in “116 White,” Hourglass Illume Crème-To-Powder Bronzer Duo in “Sunset,” Jemma Kidd Dewy Glow All Over Radiance Creme in “Rose Gold”
