Happy first day of spring! After a long, snowy winter, it’s finally time to see the sun again and watch the flowers bloom. While it might not feel like it’s spring quite yet, you can get into the spirit of the new season by updating your makeup look. And nothing says “spring” like pastel makeup. As much as we love the our vampy makeup looks, they don’t feel as springy as the macaron hues that remind us of Easter and flowers.

If you’re concerned about pastel makeup looking dated or OTT, there’s no need to be. Today’s formulas are blendable and they’re actually very flattering.

The eyes are the easiest place to incorporate pastel colors. The glossy finish of this lilac shadow is a fresh alternative to your usual matte and shimmering eyeshadows.

2. Rainbow Eyes and Dark Lips

Are you not quite ready to give up your favorite moody lipstick? Contrast a pastel rainbow eye with a vampy lip color.

3. Pink, Blue and Green Eye Makeup

Pink plus blue equals a gorgeous combination. Throw in a touch of green and you have the perfect fun spring makeup look.

4. Pink Eyeshadow and Lipstick

How dreamy is this look? The smudge of dark eyeliner gives the eyes just the right amount of definition while the pink shadows bring out her gorgeous complexion.

5. Pink and Turquoise Eye Makeup with Glitter and Black Eyeliner

The multicolored unicorn hair is gorgeous, but so is that eye makeup. The addition of the glitter in the crease takes it to another level. And that flick though…

6. Pink and Purple Flick

It’s time to switch up the black flick. Try this fresh purple and pink version. The neutral lip color complements it perfectly.

7. Turquoise Eyeshadow

There’s no need to go crazy with pastels if you don’t want to. Keep the rest of your face very natural then apply just a wash of green on your eyes.

8. Rainbow Eyes and Neutral Lips

This eye makeup incorporates almost every pastel shade, yet it’s not overwhelming. The my-lips-but-enhanced neutral lipstick balances things out nicely.

9. Pastel Shadow and Glitter Eyebrows

Glitter brows? Yes, please. The very subtle shades in this look are stunning. If you’re intimidated by opaque pastel shadows, this is the look for you.

10. White Eyeshadow with Colored Accents

The white eyeshadow makes the blue and yellow accent shadows pop. The placement of them is also very clever.

11. Yellow and Pink Eyeshadow

Here’s your proof that pastel shadows can still be edgy. The way the pink eyeshadow matches the lip color helps tie everything together.
