Candy-Colored Makeup Picks to Get You in the Spring Spirit
Published Apr 16, 2014
Easter is all about color: dip-dyed eggs, hot-hued jelly beans, the crazy patterned dress your grandma made you wear every year on the holiday. To get in the spirit, we put together some of our favorite pretty pastels you’ll actually want to wear this April 20. Here’s hoping that Bunny reads this too, so you wake up to these goodies in your basket Sunday morning.
These concentrated loose powders are great for building coverage—dust on a little for a subtle, pastel pop, or add a few layers if you want to rival those Robin’s Eggs. For extra pop, follow with Inglot Cosmetics AMC Eyeliner Gel in a coordinating color.

The blue-on-eyes trend shows no signs of slowing this season. For just a hint of color, we recommend teal liner just on your lower lash line or in the outer corners of your eyes.
A few wisps of these colorful individual lashes—each set comes with green, yellow, blue, purple, red, and pink options—is just right for a bold seasonal touch. Add a few to the outer corners of lashes in a hue that matches your outfit!
We love that Inglot has such a wide range of lipsticks in different finishes—matte, cream, pearl, you name it. If there was ever a time to break out the pink and purple and orange and sky blue, this is it! A soft, neutral eye is a good balance for the more daring shades; but you can always use Easter as an excuse to go all-out.
If you’re more of a gloss person, Armour’s give you a pop of pastel plus lots of shine. You can control the vibrancy—apply lightly for a sheerer look, and layer it on for a more opaque finish. They’re super pigmented, so a little goes a long way.
Peaches, corals, and baby-doll pinks converge in this all-in-one compact (the ultra-springy floral design is just an added bonus). Choose one color for the apples of your cheeks, one to bronze, and one to highlight ,or mix them together for a dusting of sheer color with a dewy finish.
After this long winter, adding a warm glow with this foolproof highlighter stick is a quick way to embrace the warmer weather. It catches the light beautifully on the browbone, cupid’s bow, upper cheekbone, and the bridge of your nose.
Is a look ever complete without the perfect polish? We love RGB’s long-lasting pastel options—choose one, paint each nail a different shade, or even for more fun, reimagine one of these DIY tape manis in an Easter-esque palette.
