Fancy a spring fling in december? Yes? We do too – which is we love our “Pastel Passion” story so much. Fake fur, fuzzy knits, and modern make-up – created by the talented make-up artist Ellie Tobin. With her twist on the pastel look, she is right on trend and if you fancy giving these soft colours a try – here are Ellie’s pastel picks.
Nude Peach Blush - by Bobbi Brown
This peachy shade gives your cheeks a fresh and natural glow and is a great way to dip your toe into the whole pastel trend. Subtle but so delicious!
Cubby Stick Moisturising Lip Colour Balm - by Clinique
Supreme Sorbet … mmhhh – it not only sounds sweet, the shade also looks sweet! One bonus – the lip balm is extremely moisturising and a real treat for chapped winter lips. The sheer colour applies smoothly and transforms your lips into a pair of candy kissers.
Duo Eyeshadow - by Nars Cosmetics
Okay so it is party time – here are your options. Do you want: 1. A modern look 2. AFestive make-up 3. A new and fun trend The right answer is ALL of the above, if you are using Nars Duo Eyeshadow in Jardin Perdu. The purple shade especially suits those with green eyes, but also looks lovely on anybody else.
Bikini So Teeny - by Essie
So sweet, so innocent, so pretty! This nail polish is the quintessence of pastel chic. If you are slightly bored of wearing pink on your nails, then why not give this heavenly blue a try?
Chartreuse Pigment - by Mac Cosmetics
BAM! This baby is a real show-stopper and quite literally an eye-catcher. Ellie first applies a white cream eyeshadow as a base and then softly pats in some of the green pigment. Lastly she blends out the edges, to keep it looking modern. Due to the mix of green and white you obtain the perfect pastel pistachio – which will make your peepers pop!
