Lilac Love

Lilac Love

This spring/summer, make-up is going girly, and one of the main colours that seems to be popping up is lilac. Pastels will always be big for spring, but lilac is the chosen one this year, and shades are ranging from cool lavenders to more pinker, warmer tones.  

Some people will love wearing this trend, but, for some, a bold pastel purple lip can be too much! Fortunately, there are more subtle ways that this trend can be worn, such as on your nails, or by using a lilac eyeliner under your eyes for that pop of colour. If you're not much of a girly girl, but still want to follow this trend, keep your outfit dark to contrast with the cutesy feel that this colour could create. 

Wearing lilac eyeshadow is another popular way to wear this trend. To tone it down slightly, wash a lilac colour of your choice over your lid. Then apply your bronzer or any brown colour through the crease of the eye. This will help to add depth and dimension to the look, as well as adding in more natural, earthy tones that will make the lilac less intense. Then, highlight your inner corner with a frosty colour, and apply eyeliner and smudge it slightly to soften the line. Then, add a few coats of mascara. This will create a really pretty daytime look. To add some drama add black winged eyeliner and a darker purple tone in the outer corner.

I personally love this trend, and can't wait to add a bit of colour to my daily make-up routine this spring!
