Spring has officially sprung and I couldn’t be any more excited! The sun is shining, the flowers are blooming and I keep seeing the pastel trend everywhere. Wearing the beautiful subtle shades always makes me so happy and for me spring is the ideal time to step out of my comfort zone and incorporate some color into my life and especially my eye makeup. So if you fancy learning more about my favorite milky makeup picks - keep reading! Pastel pink and peach lips and colorful, yet soft eye makeup? Yes please!
Inglot Rainbow Eye Shadow Quad
Colorful eye makeup is usually not something that I’d go for, but during springtime I’m willing to make an exception and play around with colors a bit more. My partner in crime for those occasions is this beautiful eye shadow quad from the Inglot Rainbow Freedom System (here). The shades I have in here are mint green (104R), purple (114R), peach (118R) and the not-so-special beige (106R). The beautiful gradient pastel colors are ideal for creating subtle spring makeup and just adding a little pop of color into your everyday makeup look. The pigmentation of the shadows is incredible and the quality is not far away from my beloved MAC ones. They all have lovely matte finish and blend beautifully, allowing you to create the perfect happy, fun look. Pop some in the inner corner of the eye (as I did here), apply some under your lower lash line to help bring out the color of your eyes or go a bit crazier by sweeping the colors all over the lid – it’s up to you but one thing is certain – you will look as radiant and whimsical as ever!
Bourjois Cream Blush in 01 Nude Velvet
Pastel peach blush is something that is on top of my spring makeup favorites and the one that has been glued to my cheeks recently is this Bourjois Cream Blush in 01 Nude Velvet (here). This little pot of prettiness is my pale complexion’s best friend! The stunning light shade adds just the right amount of soft color, making my face look brighter, healthier and happier. This easy-to apply cream-to-powder blush also has incredible formula, which not only blends effortlessly but stays in place for some good 7-8 hours! It’s love! See my full review and swatches here.
Maybelline Color Whisper Lip Color in Coral Ambition
The only thing better than rocking peachy cheeks is rocking peachy cheeks, accompanied by pretty peachy lips, don’t you think? To go with the lovely Nude Velvet blush, I’ve pulled out this Maybelline Color Whisper Lip Color beauty in Coral Ambition (review here). Now that I have some more tan on (fake tan sadly *cough*), this lovely coral with strong peach undertones has made its way into my makeup bag. Coral Ambition helps me take my pastel makeup obsession on another level and its soft shade provides all the right amounts of milky color. It finishes off my peachy makeup beautifully and makes it look so soft and gentle – perfect for spring. The formula of the Color Whisper is lovely and the lip color feels so light and moisturizing on the lips. The color is buildable and the lipstick glides on the lips easily and it’s not sticky. The only bugbear is that this beauty doesn’t last much on and you need to reapply throughout the day. The yummy vanilla scent makes it not all that bad though, so I’m not complaining.
YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick in #7 Lingerie Pink
If you are more of a pink makeup type of gal, this YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick in Lingerie Pink (here) will keep you the best company when it comes to pastel lips. The oh-so-gorgeous frosty pastel pink compliments my skin tone beautifully and makes me feel feminine and classy. Lingerie Pink is so gentle and soft and paired with a nice light pink blush your spring makeup is sorted. The formula of this lippy is absolutely brilliant and the pigmentation is downright amazing! This gem is so buttery and the gorgeous glossy finish helps you achieve the perfect pastel pout in no time. Simple, yet so beautiful – Lingerie Pink completely captured my heart! Review here.
