Straight off the runways of New York and Paris comes the pastels trend. While the word pastel might conjure up images of Easter eggs -- and a slight feeling of disgust -- challenge yourself to see beyond that. Instead, think of the new pastel eyeshadows as anywhere from romantically charming to cheeky nostalgia. This trend goes way beyond Easter baskets with colors like sea spray, dove gray, cotton candy and mint chip ice cream.
To really make the colors pop, experts suggest using cream-based shadows instead of powder. Balance it out with a touch of soft pink on your lips and not much else. The key with many eyeshadow trends is to let your eyes shine by playing down the rest of the makeup on your face.
