How do you get a bright and cheerful look with Pretty Pastels Palette?
Playing with pastels can be tricky — I have to ditch the black, brown and grey and dabble in some lime green, lilac and baby blue. From pretty pinks to lime green, there’s a bunch of amazing spring eye shadow colours here to choose from. Taking a walk in the park or in the office all day, these pastels give you that fresh spring feel.

The whole idea is to make your eyes the primary focus on the face. When wearing pastels on the eyes, stick to neutrals everywhere else, otherwise it can end up reading to pageant-y. Team up the pastel on the eyes with a Mosaic bronzer on the cheeks and nude lips with Love heart lip balm in 'Kiss Me'- £2.

Mosaic Bronzer in 'Natural Glow' - £2.50
Make sure you prep your eyes to make your eye shadow last all day. As with any eye shadow, especially pastels, it’s super-important to use a base so the colour doesn’t crease. My favourite primer is MUA’s Eye primer- £2.50 “It’s like glue for eye shadow!”.
