Question of the Week: In honor of Easter and springtime in general: When it Comes to Makeup do You Like Pastels? If so, tell us a few of your favorites!
Answer of the Week: In general I’m not a fan of pastels; they don’t really work well on me. I can sometimes make them work (like an inner lid eyeshadow shade) or by layering (a pastel on top of a dark lipstick).

  • The only place that pastel makeup belongs is on my nails. (And as color correctors on my face). If used for any other purposes, 1985 has called and wants it back.

  • As a general rule, pastels look horrible on me. I can’t do any remotely pastel shades on my lips – can’t wear Too Faced Melted Peony because it shows up as 80s pastel pink on me. I can do pastel eyeshadow, but only in small doses…which is why I have so much trouble getting the It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Vol 2: The Romantics palette to work on me.

  • I’m not a big fan of pastel makeup, either. The more white based and matte the pastel makeup is, the less I like them. Icy pastels can be really pretty.
