Pastel eye shadows were so popular back in the 60's and have made their way back today as the hottest makeup trend to wear this spring and summer. I'm not a fan of pastel eye shadows but I have to say that some of these colors are really quite pretty. The one color I am mostly intrigued with is the #25. It's a gorgeous shade of apricot that has a slight sheen to it. All the shadows are highly pigmented and blendable. They are super long lasting when used with an eye shadow primer but even without one, mine lasted a long time. All the colors are really fantastic!

Get The Look: Pastel Perfect Shadow
Step 1: Apply a nude eye shadow from the upper lash line to the crease.
Step 2: Using an eye shadow brush like MAKE UP FOR EVER's #10S, sweep your favorite pastel eye shadow from the inner to outer corner of the eye, extending just above the crease while leaving the outer corner open.
Step 3 (optional): Apply a pop of pastel to the outer corner of the lower lash line for a more colorful, playful pop.
Step 4: Apply two coats of your favorite mascara, such as MAKE UP FOR EVER Smoky Lash.
