Spring is around the corner, bring out your pastel makeup!
I usually see a little bit of fear when it comes to wearing Pastel Colours on the eyes, but if you know what colour you should add, it can only enhance your spring looks & make your iris pop!
Just like the colour theory says, there are some simple rules that you can follow in order to make your eyes stand out. In theory, the complementary colours on the Colour Wheel are the ones that get well together. For example, Red has Green as complementary pair, so if you have green eyes you should wear more warm toned eyeshadows, shades like cranberry or terracotta. Blue is complementary with Orange, so golds and coppers enhance blue eyes; and so on.
When it comes to pastel colours though, you can still have those rules in your mind, but things are a little bit more flexible.
GREEN EYES – they go best with pastel pinks or warm violets, but also pastel green and mint for an extra sparkle.
