Happy Easter Pastels FotD

To my readers who celebrate, happy Easter!  To those who don't, happy Sunday where everyone else is obsessed with pastel colors, chocolate bunnies, and eggs.  I don't really celebrate Easter anymore (we did do Easter-y stuff in my house when I was a kid) except maybe eat a Cadbury Creme Egg.  I did use a bunch of pastel shades for my makeup, and it seems kind of Easter-y.

So, do pastels = Easter for you, too?

Have a wonderful day, my friends!


  1. Happy Easter! We don't celebrate, but I do enjoy any excuse to bust out fun pastels. Easter in my memory = pastels and super-waxy chocolate bunnies from the drugstore, haha.

  2. Your eyes look gorgeous!!! How do you apply your glittery Colourpop shadows so precisely? I find the mattes work well with brushes for me, but my glittery one never comes up really opaque. But regardless, you look stunning!

  3. Love the pastel green and teal!

    What a beautiful and colourful look!

  5. I used a flat, stiff shader brush with these ColourPop shadows because I wanted precise placement. These shades were quite opaque, but there are some that I find I absolutely have to use my finger for in order to get the full color (So Quiche and Cricket, most notably). It seemed like these had more base pigment than many of the other glittery shades to start with. It seems to depend on the shadow. I also make sure to "pat" them on instead of using a swiping motion. I've actually been meaning to try So Quiche and/or Cricket with a sticky base or glitter adhesive to see if that makes them more pigmented color-wise.
    Thanks, Margo!

  6. Thank you! I almost put on a more nude lip color, but I figured if I can't go all out pastel on Easter, then when can I?
