Garden Party: Pastel Eye Makeup That Actually Looks Chic



Pastel makeup, while pretty, does not have the best reputation. Most people's first thought when faced with a seafoam green liner or a baby blue shadow is either tea party or pre-teens. Well, put aside your preconceived notions because there actually is a way to make those super-girly shades look sophisticated — for proof, just take a gander at all the dreamy pastel looks that dominated the spring runways.

So much do we love these trendy pastel gazes, that we called in makeup artist James Vincent to show our deputy editor Neha — who has a confessed aversion to all things colorful — the pastel ropes. Watch and learn how to incorporate these soft hues into your regular routine, and let us know: Will you be trading in the neutrals for the pastels this summer?
