Dream big for your wedding color story! It doesn’t matter if your bridal style is edgy or demure, ethereal light hues are trending big time. This wedding season, just like crayons on white paper, pastels are leaving their cheerful mark. From mint greens to yellow sorbet, there’s no end to the possibilities for your wedding party’s summer styling.
Whether pastels remind you of shopping the candy store or doodling in coloring books, your childhood memories can come to life by playing with the tools in your makeup bag. Put a special occasion spin on everyday makeup by using pastels that coordinate with your wedding’s theme.
Accent those eyes! Milky pastels are best paired with a neutral foundation base, soft pinky cheeks and rosy lips. Fun and flirty eyeliner choices are endless, from pale yellow to green, light pink to baby blue. Match your bridesmaids’ dresses or find the perfect contrast. Play it up with shimmering shadows and don’t forget the little details!
This trend is totally “nailing” it, because the pastel party doesn’t stop there. There are plenty of shimmery, matte or milky soft shades of polish to enhance every skin tone, so there’s no excuse for not having a marvelous manicure this wedding season!
Don’t be afraid to have fun with your nail art, there are endless opportunities to implement pastels. Try a classic French manicure with a twist this season, instead of a white tip, try pairing pastel polishes for flirty fingers. Or, draw pastel stripes on a clean base or neutral nail polish using a thinner brush or a stencil kit for perfect, precise designs.
Get as creative as you want, it’s your day and summer is the perfect time to play!
