I know it’s predictable that the winter-into-spring trend this year is blush and nude, but who doesn’t get excited for these things?! When I see the pretty pastels, I know warmer weather and new clothes are coming. This year, I’ve noticed a lot of rustic touches mixed in with the baby-pink blush.
It may be hard to style pastels, especially blush. A lot of paler people (me) find it hard to wear because it sometimes washes you out. The best way to deal with this trend for spring is to mix in some nudes and browns. This will be a mature way to wear such a girly color. Make sure that your browns are of good quality, like a nice leather boot, or else it can start to look a little cheap. Pairing creams with it will also be a nice compliment to the blush color.
When it comes to clothing, I might stay away from the blush sweaters. I have pale skin with red undertones, which can make very pale pinks look like I’m not wearing anything (yikes). However, a nude color with a blush skirt is very complimenting, especially if you pick a floaty skirt. I love wearing a cream or off-white hat with pale pink accessories as well, since spring can still be quite cold! A nice pink nail is also a cute way to wear pastels, and Essie is quite popular for their range of colors.
As for makeup, using orange-toned bronzers bring out the red in blush, so when applied lightly it will go perfectly with a rosy tint to the cheeks. A light pink lip looks beautiful in the spring, but you could also use a brown-pink lip liner from winter to compliment your blush!
