One of our favorite color trends for spring, pastel pink can be a tricky shade to wear without crossing the fine line between chic and and too young. We turned to the pros to determine the best ways to wear this hue. Here, Katie Jane Hughes, global colour ambassador for butter LONDON, gives us five ways to pull it off.

On Your Lips

Wearing this shade of pink on your lips is one of the easiest ways to pull off the color. “I love a pretty pink lip with a classic cat’s-eye. It’s timeless and elegant.”

On Your Eyes

“Pastel pink eye shadow should be worn softly and sheer like a wash of color. I would pair it with a red lip for a cool, on-trend contrast.”

What to Use: MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Let’s Skate, $21, maccosmetics.com

On Your Cheeks

“I adore a creamy pink cheek worn all on its lonesome with a great brow and a little mascara. Using brown mascara, try wiping excess product off of the brush and then skimming what’s left through your brows for a natural fullness.”

On Your Nails

Opt for a pastel pink nail with a white tint to it. It’s very flattering, as the white brightens it and makes skin appear more tan. And who doesn’t want that?”

On Your Face

Use an illuminator. Dewy skin goes with everything, and a light pink shade is one I would use most in spring.”
