Another makeup look that is trending right now is pastel eyeshadow.
I cant get enough of the subtle pastel eye look. It makes me feel like I’m a 70’s era doll, or Alice having tea with the mad hatter, or in the Louis Vuitton ice cream shop ad’s.
Remember the Covergirl ads in the 70’s?
A housewife with pastel blue eyeshadow on the advertisement “Covergirl invents 9 hour eye polish”!
Or the Maybelline kit “For a girl on the go”.
So edgy! So cosmopolitan.
A historical pastel shadow look that I love is twiggy in a bright blue with a massively dramatic black crease.
Today’s pastel look is more subtle and leans in favor of the unicorn trend.
Makeup brands like Lorac, MAC, and Kat Von D, to name a few have come out with 9-16 shade pastel palettes.
I like the femininity & ethereal nature of the pastel shadow craze. Blues, pinks, greens, purples.
I would LOVE to be able to get my hands on Chanel’s Spring 2010 collection so I could rock pastels all over and do it right.
Think I wouldn’t wear pastel eyeshadow with a pastel Chanel suit or dress and a bow? I’d even add their costume jewelry.
What do you think?
I didn’t have any pastel palettes so I had to mix a lot of greens, blues, purples and pinks with white shadow & my Holographic palette.
I think it worked out pretty well!
