Pastel Makeup Pinspiration: The 20 Dreamiest Ways to Wear It

Pastels are doing anything but keeping to their quiet, pale selves this season, especially in the beauty world where they’re making your spring makeup routine a heck of a lot more exciting. Now, the classic red lip becomes a more modern sherbet pout and eyes are softened by powdery mint and lavender in place of a fierce smoky eye. Sounds swoon-worthy, right? See for yourself! Take a look at the dreamiest eye candy around—these 20 looks show the prettiest (and most Pinnable) of possibilities.

1. All-Over Lilac Lids: Why waste your time blending that smoky eye when you can just do it one-and-done style with one shade of bright lilac? (via Visual Optimism)

2. Tri-Colored Eyes: This chick is styled to eclectic perfection and the edgy eye look fits right in. Once we’ve prettied our lids like so, we’re going straight for a copycat mani. (via Martin Sweers via Behance)

3. Mint Eyes and Sherbet Lip: On its own, the matte sherbet lip is stunning, but paired with just a touch of mint green eye shadow, the look is out of this world. Definitely inspo for your next springy cocktail party. (via Allure)

4. Powder Blue Cat Eye: Add a swipe of milky blue eyeshadow over a navy cat eye for a vintage-inspired look that channels all the grace of Jackie O. (via Eyeshadow Lipstick)

5. Orange to Pink: This look is like whoa — an ombre orange-to-pink fade across eyes, cheeks and lips! It’s a beautiful risk. (via Catalog Fash)

6. Color Block Eyes: When being subtle doesn’t cut it. Go big with full on blocks of pastel eyeshadow and follow it up with a hot lip color. (via Style Nanda)

7. Radiant Orchid Lips: Pantone called this one early, and we have to say, this silky pink shade looks nothing less than radiant. (via Obaz)

8. Powdery Inner Eyes: A hint of duck egg blue along the inner eye not only makes your eyes look wider, but also more fabulous. We’re even swooning over that Nicole Richie copycat hair. (via Pastel Haired Models)

9. A Pop of Pastel: Yes, you can use pastel hues in your everyday makeup look. Try dotting mint or teal shadow under the center of each eye for a subtle, yet extra special pop. (via NastyGal Blog)

10. Pastel Pout: A little pastel lipstick can go a long way, as this gif clearly shows. See how the same bronzed, sporty look has a totally different vibe depending on the lips? So cool! (via NastyGal Blog)
