The best of Spring: Makeup

March 9, 2010

This spring it’s all about pastels when it comes to your eyes. Now’s the time to makeover your smoky eye by swapping out grays with purples and instead of daily black liner, opt for a plum (like one of our favorites from Urban Decay) or blue. So go ahead and break out of your mold a bit and go for pale blues, yellows, lavenders, celery and lime greens and pretty, pretty pinks.

Some starter ideas for you to try out:

Score this green and gold shimmering look with the Smashbox Muse Artist Eye palette for $24

Learn this gorgeous purple eye look by using Smashbox’s 101 here and we recommend using Benefit Cosmetic’s Luster Duster in jelly roll for highlighting under the brow and in the corner of your eyes.

Get an easy do-it all palette perfect for spring pastels with Dior’s 5-colour eyeshadow in Tropical Light.

Be daring by pairing yellow shades if you’re a blondie. Try this look seen here that NARS created for the runways during Fashion Week for Spring 2010.
