The Makeup Look: Spring Pastels with Beauty Pro Cosmetics Crazy Colour Palette




Boy do I love colors. I wake up especially early in the morning just so I can play with my makeup palettes. With a full time job that I enjoy I lot, I tend to put my blogging on the back burner. A small price to pay for doing something you love, right?But my love for makeup never wanes. Not one bit. And lately, it's been pastels and softness! Oh do I love matte pastels and soft spring look.

And guess what, I commute to work now! Yup! Saving more money for more makeup! Imagine sitting beside me inside a commuter FX and a jeepney with a full-on makeup like this. Lol!

I admit that I was a bit hesitant to try this look after seeing it on websites and photo shoots. It seemed to much for an everyday look for work. But what the hello! :)






Pastels are fun, chic and girly. That's why we can't stop looking through those girly girl tumblrs filled with pink walls and cupcakes. It's a tricky eye shadow to wear. When I was first applying it, I felt like a clown or those scary marionette figures. It's knowing how to pull this look together is what makes this look all worthwhile.

With the Beauty Pro Cosmetics Palette in Crazy Colours, I used Ice Blue, Jungle Green and Vivid Puple. A few more mixes you can try at the photo below.



The key to making pastels wearable in public:
  • Lips - Keep the lips soft and neutral. Not exactly corpse-like.
    • Rule of thumb: Pick a lip color same tone as your cheeks.
  • Cheeks - Make it pop! This will give you a rosy glow that compliments your makeup look.
  • Brows - Define and color it softly. Again, the key is softness but still a bit pronounce. Choose a lighter shade to compliment the pastels.
  • Face - Lightly contour the face. Just make sure your face isn't flat.
  • Lashes - Mascara please! Pastels tend to get pasty. A contrast of a dark patent black mascara will complete this look and make your eye appear doll-like.

Highlight your face if you feel like you need to. I applied a bit of Benefit Sun Beam along the highest planes of my cheeks.
