Pastel eyes and lips is a trend that comes and goes throughout the years. This season, it’s back in full force, and beauty brands are promoting all the baby blue and blush pink possible. To add a little healthy pastel into your life, follow this all natural makeup tutorial.
First, start with freshly cleansed and exfoliated skin. Teadora Nourishing Exfoliating Bar creates a rich lather when activated with water and detoxifies the skin without leaving that “tight” feeling other cleansing bars typically do. This organic cleanser smells like a mix of rainy day and citrus — it’s a truly unique scent that awakens even the most tired of senses (take it from me, I am a sleep-deprived new momma!) Also, it’s made with clay and Açaí seeds for exfoliation that’s gentle and safe enough for everyday use. If you’ve never cleansed with a soap bar before, try this one from Teadora. It’s an all-around great product and place to start.
Moisturize the skin and apply a layer of Lily Lolo Natural BB Cream. It has a beautiful, light coverage that’s perfect for the Spring. It also makes a nice base for other products on top, so if more coverage is needed, use the BB cream as a primer for traditional foundation. Dust Waikiki Bronzer on the high points of the face for added warmth. This bronzer is ideal for light skin tones and leaves a pretty, slightly pearlescent finish.
Now here’s where pastel comes in!
Prime the eyelids and apply a dusting of Ivory Tower eyeshadow, also by Lily Lolo, from lashline to browbone. This will even out eyelid color and help others blend effortlessly on top. Next, take Limoncello on a pointed pencil brush and dab on the inner corner of the eyes to brighten. A layer of Eye Candy on the rest of the lid will complete the pastel shadow look. Pile on multiple coats of Antonym Cosmetics Lola Lash Mascara for flake and smudge free lashes. The curved brush negates the need for a lash curler!
A fun Spring look wouldn’t be complete without a little face color! Try Antonym’s Baked Blush in Copper on the cheeks. This marbleized blush is swirled with plum, bronze, and gold for a truly unique color — think a combination of MAC’s Sunbasque and Coppertone blushes. The texture is smooth, creamy, and delicious.
Polish off the look with Antonym’s Lipstick Pencil in Pinkish. This neutral baby pink color pairs perfectly with the eyes and leaves a satin finish. It’s small, easy to use, and works as liner and lipstick in one — ensuring that lips always look plump and defined. Chubby lip pencils are “trending” right now and it’s plain to see why. This one by Antonym is prettier and creamier than many others on the market.
