Spring Pastel Lilac Eye Makeup Step by Step Tutorial
Hey all!!! Spring is in full force. In fact, some places may already feel the entry of summers. So, today I decided to do a tutorial for the spring season before it is gone this year. Usually, spring is associated with bright colors. However, makeup trends for past few years have been inclined towards pastels for springs. And this year pastels seem to rule the makeup as well as fashion trends. So, today’s tutorial is about a pastel look for the spring. I have tried to make it very wearable. Let me know how you guys like it.

Prep before the eye makeup:
As always, clean your face and eyes properly. Apply your favorite moisturizer and under-eye cream to get the base ready.
Pastel Lilac Eye Look:
Step 1: Start with filling and defining your eyebrows. Apply and blend a concealer or a primer on the lids.
Step 2: Apply any cream base in white on the lids and blend well. This will help the shadows to pop. I have used Jordana 12 Hr Made To Last Eyeshadow Pencil in Eternal White.
Step 3: Apply and blend a pink shade as a transition shade on the upper crease. I have used Coastal Scents Hot Pot in Passion Fruit Pink.
Step 4: Apply a muted plum shade on the crease and outer V of the eye. Blend the shade well with the transition shade. Also, apply the same shade on the outer 1/3rd of lower lash line. I have used Coastal Scents Hot Pot in Violetta.
Step 5: Apply the star of the eye look – a pastel lilac shade on the eyelid. I have used Urban Decay eyeshadow in Grifter, which is slightly shimmery. You can opt for a matte lilac eye shadow as well. Take the eye shadow a bit above in the inner corner of the eye. Also, apply on the lower lash line as well.
Step 6: Highlight the inner corner and the brow bone, using a shimmery pale pink eyeshadow. I have used Coastal Scents Hot Pot in Light Pink.
Step 7: Tight line the upper lash line using a black kohl. Apply on the lower waterline as well.
Step 8: I wanted the eyes to have a soft look. Hence, I have used a charcoal grey eyeliner to line the upper lash line. Smudge the liner well to further soften the look.
Step 9: Curl the lashes and apply your favorite mascara.
This is the final eye look.
For the face, apply your favorite foundation, concealer and a setting powder. Lightly contour your face using a matte bronzer or a contour powder. Apply a medium pink blush with slightly cool undertones. I have kept the blush subtle to let the eyes and the lips steal the show. I have skipped using a highlighter as I wanted the look to be more fresh and matte, rather than a dewy or a glowy one. For lips, I stuck to the color palette and picked a pastel pink. You can chose a more wearable shade of pink, if you are not fond of pastel lips.
Fall in love with pastels this spring. Wear this look for a lunch or any day event and you are sure to grab the attention. And if you are still not convinced, stay tuned for a brighter and wearable version of spring makeup next time. 🙂

[alert-note]So easy yet so chic. I like. Especially the pastel pink lip shade. <3 With a matte eye shadow the look would come out even better I am sure. I will try it with pastel blue/green. ^_^ [/alert-note]
