Natural makeup tips: Combine a tan with pastels

Natural makeup tips: Combine a tan with pastels
Posted by Tony Milner

The top shade for natural makeup fans this summer is pastels, according to a celebrity makeup artist.

Ariane Poole, who has worked with the likes of Penelope Cruz, Catherine Zeta Jones, Uma Thurman and Yasmin Le Bon, explained that for those of you with a tan, pastels are the way forward.

'They aren't really the colours you would normally think to put with a tan, but a lot of the designers were mixing those kind of shades together and they are kind of quirky but they really do work,' she explained.

Ms Poole recommended sheer rather opaque when it comes to purchasing natural makeup products and for colours, look to mint greens, lilacs and peachy pink tones.

Vogue has already demonstrated what can be done with pastels, with sugary shades such as baby blue, pastel pink and pale yellows taking precedent in their spring/summer 2010 trend report.

Other shades that can work wonders with a tan are metallics – consider bronzes and steel greys.ADNFCR-2885-ID-19910699-ADNFCR
