Trend: how to wear pastel lips

At the Paco Rabanne fashion show, lips were cyan blue. At the Jeremy Scott fashion show, they were candy pink. Faded hues and candy shades definitely make heads turn. To wear them, pay special attention to what your lips need and the texture of the product you choose. Doing so will result in a stunningly confident look!

1

Exfoliate your lips

Get rid of dead cells that can create an uneven surface on your lips. You can use a damp towel and scrub your lips in a circular motion or a sweet scrub specifically designed for your mouth.

Because pastel lipsticks are often thicker (they contain white pigment which is generally more dense), you want your lips to be as smooth as possible before applying your product.

A healthy complexion

When it comes to pale lipsticks, many women fear that these colours will give them a sickly complexion. To counter this effect, make sure to choose a shade that’s as close to your complexion as possible and add a bit of neutral or light pink blush on your cheeks to give your face some definition.

Play with contrasts

With a pale colour on your mouth, you’ll want to give your face a bit of contrast. The key? Play around with the intensity of your eyes by finding the right balance of shadow and light thanks to a black liner on the root of your eyelashes. Apply two or three layers of midnight black mascara to really make your eyes pop. A great way to show off both sides of your personality!
