It’s playful, it’s light, it’s a nice, bright move into a more light-hearted look for makeup. From the primary to the pastel, vivid colour will be HUGE this season, whilst petal-soft lips take a supporting role. Wear your bright pastel shades in ‘blocks’ on the eyelids or washed in the inner ‘v’ of the eyes to really make them pop!
Get the Look:
