There is no denying that the colours of summer 2013 are truly lip-smacking-good. Hues inspired by ice-creams and macaroons are seen everywhere in fashion and home décor trends. Beautiful pastel colours have taken over clothing lines, shoe designs, nail art, accessories and even hair styles. Finding the perfect make-up to match is surely a priority. After all, what good is a carefully co-ordinated outfit when your make-up doesn’t mirror the effect?
The stunning Crème de Couture Collection by Sigma Beauty is your summer must-have. There are 16 whimsical eye shadows in the palette, and 3 fanciful blushes for you to choose from. The colours are highly pigmented and long-wearing. The palette cleverly includes some more toned-down colours that you could use for natural looking effect if you wish. This collection is a limited edition, so be sure to get yours before it’s sold out!
Wearing pastels can be tricky as you need to find the right balance between looking washed out, and looking like you work in an ice cream parlour. Carefully blending the lighter shades with pop-worthy contrast colours, or darker shades of the same colour will make your face look fantasy-like and not pale and sickly. Use a dark eyeliner and plenty of mascara to really make your eyes stand out. For your outfit, choose pieces that are tailored and finish it off with strong accessories.
