5 Pastels That Are Hot Right Now -- and How to Wear Them
Top makeup artists fill us in on the best ways to try this trend without looking like a bowl of jellybeans
Periwinkle blue eyeshadowWhen it comes to periwinkle, think disco circa 1975 (but trust us, it won't look like a bad time warp). We like Sephora Collection Colorful Mono Eyeshadow in Swimming Pool, $12. Light-skinned celebrities like Ginnifer Goodwin have been spotted wearing this trendy hue, but Rodriguez says it also looks exceptional on darker-skinned women. "Rich, dark skin coupled with blue eyeshadow looks so chic," he says. Here's how to pull off periwinkle blue:
Eyes: Layer the shadow over your entire lid to the crease and the inner corner. Then swipe it on your lower lashline. "Keep it simple, close to the eye, and very soft," says Rodriguez. "Similar to where you would apply a neutral beige base."
Cheeks: Keep the focus on your eyes by wearing a light wash of pink or taupey-colored blush.
Lips: Finish with a petal pink lip gloss. But if you're dark-skinned, Rodriguez recommends completing the look with a dark berry lip gloss. "Women with color look stunning with a darker lip."
