How to wear pastel makeup

Dee Thomson
Toronto | Liner and Glitter and Gloss, Oh My!

Pastel shades don’t make their way into my makeup bag too often, but when they do I fully embrace them. This summer, baby blues seem to be my shade of choice. On the eyes, I like to keep it simple. I’ll do a quick wash on the lid with a pastel blue, then add a bit of contouring and a little liner with a darker blue shade before finishing off with mascara. I really like to swipe a coat of mascara on my bottom lashes to give my eyes a bit of a mod look as I think it goes perfectly with the pale blue.

For my nails, I am really loving pastel shades—I like to start off with a coat or two of a pastel before jazzing it up a little with some polka dots, lines or zig zags. White is the perfect shade to complement any pastel and is great for adding an accent. I’m also loving a matte top coat on top of a pastel polish—I find that it adds the perfect softness to go with these girly shades.
