Nails

For a while now we’ve seen the revival of block colours as the main nail trend. This spring is no different with block pastel polishes being more popular then ever. Boasting versatility in their cosmetic range, Limecrime have released a range of 7 pastel nail polishes, resembling decadent deserts you would find at Marie Antoinette’s dinner party. From Les Desserts d'Antoinette Nail Polish Collection we adore CREMA DE LIMON pastel yellow nail polish and PEACHES CREAM pastel orange nail polish. 

Eyes

Highlighting eyes with pastel shades has remained the trend at large this season. Featured as the key makeup trend from the Diesel fragrance Loverdose campaign, a pastel eye shadow blended up towards the brow bone is both soft, subtle and statement at the same time. In our seasonal photo-shoot Sugar Queen, a soft shade of pastel pink has been brushed across the models eyelids to draw attention to the eyes.

Feeling a bit daring? Why not combine colours for a two-tone effect. Pastel pink and blue hues compliment each other, as do apricot and minty green combinations.  Napoleon Color Discs eye shadow range, contains a variety of pastel hues that have a rich, shimmery finish.  The Fashion Weekly Team recommends four amazing shades from this range: Lilac Maniac, Azure Oasis, Amazon Jungle and Infinity Pool.

Hair

At the Peter Som spring collection for NYFW, we saw new light shed on tinted tresses.  Models strode down the runway with multicolour pastel strands randomly dispersed throughout hair. A gradual mix of three tones was explored, starting with a blue at the roots, blended into pink and finished with a bright green colour spread throughout the ends of hair. The random pops of colour scattered throughout hair creates a fresh take on pastel feature hair and is set to overshadow the dip dye trend. 
Attempt this colourful mane using Kevin Murphy’s Color Bug hair shadow products. Available in shades of pink, purple and orange, colour glides effortlessly onto hair and can be intensified with multiple applications.  These hair shadows only provide a temporary colour as they wash straight out with any shampoo and conditioning product. Always start with a towel draped around your shoulders to catch any residue powder and finish with a spritz of hairspray to lock in the colour.
