This is a LOTD featuring the Dior Swimming Pool palette from their latest summer collection (available 1 may) --- click here, for detailed photos & swatches of the palette.
3 of the shades in the palette are very pale ones, so I know that only two shades can be used on my lids - which are the teal and the blue in the middle of the palette. I will show you the color placement in a picture later on.
The overall eyelook is very light, and almost airy. I used my regular lashes to add definition to the look, because I personally think that using these light colors on my eyes can tend to make them look smaller. I only used a little bit of gel liner, applied and blended them in between my upper lashes. I left the lower lashes totally bare.
I tried to keep the skin very flawless and smooth looking. And then I lightly bronze the sides of my face, and give cheeks a pop of color. Then I remember there is a tangerine/ orange looking lipgloss in the collection, so I decided to use my Shiseido lipstick. Somehow the whole teal/ blue and orange combo seems to work, and make each other even more outstanding.
Ended up with a matchy lips and tee color + matchy nails and eye colors. I personally feel it is quite cute, and it's colorful without being too loud.
For a expert demonstration of this pastel candy color makeup, click here to watch Lisa Eldridge's tutorial (where she also featured the same Dior palette, but didn't actually use it) link link link! She also shares tips on how to wear candy colors according to your skintone, and how not to look too washed out with pastels.
as you can see, from above the crease upwards, you can't really see the differences in the pale shades...
