Winter Pastels

I love the idea of Winter pastels especially gray and mint combos like this one I’ve created above. There’s something about pastels against a blanket of white that seems so appealing to me. Most people probably associate these colors with Summer or Spring, but I think that if done right they are perfect for the colder months. 

The red lips might not necessarily be considered a pastel, but I think it looks great! I love the bold red lip color with mint clothing; I just find the two colors to be so complimentary. You might disagree blog reader 🙂 in which case opt for a pretty pink or coral color instead. When sporting your Winter pastels make sure to keep the makeup soft and natural especially around the eyes. Do use some bronzer just under your cheek bones, and brush the apples of your cheeks with some pink or coral blushes for a great apres-ski look.

    I totally agree with you in that sense that if you're going to do a winter pastel that it's nice if something else is bright like your lips, plus I love the mint and red together. I saw this was the Style Panel challenge for this coming week so I love what you've put together!

    the grey with the pastel is such a lovely colour combo! a nice to switch to the dark colours of winter and it brings a nice hint of spring to winter attire! I need to get on this trend asap!
