Beauty trend report: pastel perfection

Thanks to Nicole Richie, you might have seen a few candy-coloured heads walking around this year. But for those not keen to dye their hair pretty pinks and sky blues, there is a subtler way to get onboard this season’s trend: makeup! Stock up you pastel polishes, blushes and lip glosses for spring.

Nails

Compliment your pastel wardrobe with your nails. The great thing about pastels is that they don’t have to match. You can dabble in a rainbow of colours, or stick to a less outrageous natural tone or pale orange/pink. Perhaps you can try some ombré nails.

Lips

When it comes to lip color, stick to pinks. Be careful not to wash out your skin tone by wearing a lipstick too pale. Perhaps also don’t go near the 90s style metallics or you might end up looking like a Eurovision contestant.
