Simple Pastel Makeup Look

Hello everyone! Recently I created a makeup look based around a few of my favourite pastel colours and thought that it would interesting to share. Pastel colours are great for summer and for those who enjoy colour, so what better way than to incorporate these into a makeup look! 

For this look I used minimal products and focused on the Mediterranean eyeshadow palette by Sleek.

1.) After applying foundation, concealer & powder as your base, select your eyeshadow to begin the eyes (my main pastel colours include a mint green and lilac.)
2.) Begin by applying the mint green to the inner half of the eye up until the eye crease.
3.) Select a shimmery lilac and place the eyeshadow onto the outer half of the lid, making sure you carefully blend the two colours with a fluffy brush. Also use the fluffy brush to blend the edges of the eyeshadow to soften the edges of colour.
4.) In order to create greater depth, apply more of the lilac colour into the eye crease as this will provide the illusion of deeper sockets and a more interesting look. After that apply your favourite black eye liner to neaten the look and create contrast.
5.) Next apply your favourite mascara, select a rosy pink blush and add a pink lip. You can also fill in your brows to neaten up the overall look and frame your face.

I hope that you enjoyed this simple tutorial :) What pastel colours are your favourite?
