The season trend is to go for the pastel look and it has been dominating the catwalks everywhere.  The trick with this hue is to wear it light, you can layer it to create interesting and flattering tones but remember to pair up with a light lipgloss and notes of subtle fragrance that mesh in with the overall theme.

Top tips for this is to imagine a wash of colour that serenely blends into each other with a faint changing chroma that is barely noticeable.

For the lips I like Dior lip duo which will treat and care whilst acting as a makeup for the fullest pout.

Lip Glow which goes on first as a lip balm or primer, it will react chemically with your body to give you a natural flush of pink, it can then be teamed with a lipstick or Lip Maximizer for even more radiant results.

Lip Maximiser with collagen creates an instant full look and will smooth and boost lip volume before adding colour, or it can be used over lipstick for a touch of shine and a plumping effect. For intensive lipcare, it can be used alone as a 15-day treatment applied daily in the morning before makeup or in the evening.

Remember to use a #bareface natural look makeup with either a serum or tinted moisturiser or alternatively go without cover whatever you prefer.

If you want to add a bit of drama easily, line around the eye with pastel pencils, they can contain shimmer for the effect too and it is a quick method to create a made up look without hassle.

Finish with a no smudge mascara for this I recommend the Bobbi Brown product which not only layers easily for huge fluttery lashes but it removes easily with a duo phase eye makeup remover product.  It does not move all day including hardcore workout in the gym, being in the humidity, sun, water it will not flake it is basically brilliant.

Pair your mani pedis using interesting variations that are inline with your pastel makeover too!

Fragrance wise, combine light scents that are pleasing partners in both olfactory sense and work well with the overall theme.  Traditionally Jo Malone has the largest range that can simply be sprayed with each other for a gorgeous and bespoke scent.
