N.Y. Editor’s Beauty Trend Report: Pastel Makeup

While the months of a deep burgundy lip and copper eyeshadow begin to fade away, maybe it’s time our makeup fades away as the season change? When a new season is thrown at us in full force, it often sparks a bit of a change in our life, whether it is our wardrobe, coffee order, and in this case: Makeup routine.

With this trend, it’s time to channel your inner snow queen. Pastel makeup is a great way to switch up in your makeup ritual. The lighter colors are very flattering on a most complexions, especially if you have light to fare skin. Plus, it’s nice to have a break from the deep colors of fall.

The trick to this look is adding a bit of youthfulness to your face. Achieve the dewy skin,  use a BB cream and highlighter. You will also want to swipe on a hint of cream pink blush to add a little color to the cheeks. When tackling this trend, stick with light pink, blue and purple hues. The softness of these colors will make your eyes pop. Plus, a barely there pink lip adds a bit of innocence with a natural touch to the look. Oh, and it’s a perfect way to pull the entire makeup look together.
