Channel one of the Pantone colours of the year with an ethereal makeup look. This look will leave you looking and feeling feminine and illuminated, with light pastel tones making an understated impact, and Pantone’s colour of the year (well, one of them) ‘Rose Quartz’ owning this look using Youngblood Cosmetics.

THE BASE: Begin with applying the Youngblood Mineral Primer over the face for a fresh base complexion. Then, using the Youngblood liquid foundation brush, evenly spread the Youngblood Liquid Mineral Foundation in your appropriate shade over your face. Use your ring finger to apply the Youngblood Ultimate Corrector, brightening your under eyes, creating your ethereal skin. Additionally, in order to maintain this base coverage throughout the day, swipe the Youngblood Cosmetics Loose Mineral Rice Setting Powder over the forehead, chin and the bridge of your nose to prevent unwanted shine.

EYES: Start by applying Youngblood Stay Put Eye Prime over the entire lid to prevent your shadow migrating down your face. For a lilac toned eye, use the Youngblood Perfect Pair Mineral Eyeshadow Duo in ‘Desire’, and with the Youngblood Eyeshadow Brush, swipe the lighter Pink Rose shadow to the whole lid of the eye. Then, using the crease smudge brush, apply the darker Iris shade to the crease and along the lash line for a smoky, blended look. Lightly apply Iris along the bottom lash line as well to complete the look. Finally, coat your lashes with a layer of Youngblood Mineral Lengthening Mascara in Mink.

CHEEKS: Using a the Youngblood liquid foundation brush, swipe the Youngblood (appropriately named) Crème Blush in Rose Quartz across the apples of your cheeks for a pastel, flushed look. As an additional option for this look, lightly dab Rose Quartz along the brow bone to highlight and define the brows.

LIPS: Finally, to finish off this pastel beauty look, slick the Youngblood Intimatte Lipstick in Vanity over your lips, and our Lip Gel in Stripped over the top to give a creamier, shiny finish.
