I love using pastels as a highlight for my eyes. I wear lots of jewel tone smoky eyes, and a pastel in there is a great way to make them pop. :>

If I had to I’d wear a pastel eyeshadow on the lid in an otherwise dark and smokey look. Maybe as lipstick if it wasn’t ‘too pastel’ (something closer to MAC Please Me than MAC St Germain).

I just tend not to be a fan of pastels, I prefer either bolder or more neutral colours. Not really sure why.

On the eyelid, and occasionally nails. I have to be ver careful with what shades I wear on the eyes, because although I’m very light, I have dark hair & eyes, and my bone structure is very prominent, so pastels can seem out of place. Most of the pastel shadows I wear are pink or purple, and shimmery or duochrome, and always paired with a deeper shade. As for nails, duochrome and glitter, since I’ve never found a creme that isn’t streaky, and I refuse to spend alot of money on polish.

I wear “lighter” shades of blush & lipstick, but I wouldn’t classify them as pastels, rather soft neutrals.

I guess on nails, as long as there’s a bit of shimmer or sparkle. I have the purple Illamasqua speckled polish and that’s pastel, too, I guess.

I’m more of a jewel tone or metallic person, for any method of wearing color (makeup, clothes, accessories).

On me, eyes. I’m not too big on pastels elsewhere because it’s hard not to get them to look chalky, which isn’t a look I favor on me.

I love wearing pastels colors on my eyes, but, it cant be too dramatic. I would use a darker shade to complement it. I also love wearing pastel colors such as peach, orange and pink on my lips. Love it on my nails as well.

I tend to only really wear pastel shades on my nails. I don’t really wear colours on my eyes except neutral shades or really dark colours for smokey eyes. Pastel eyes shades make me look strange. I suppose because I’m really pale the majority of my blush shades would be classed as pastel though.

Usually on the cheeks or lips. I’m very fair and cool-toned, so light pinks and lilac tones are wearable as lip shades. Strong pastels like MAC Viva Glam Nicki 2 can be a bit tricky because of the lack of contrast with my skin tone, but I find using a darker lip pencil to fill in and contour makes it wearable. 🙂

Hands down on my nails! I don’t really think I could pull pastels off anywhere else except maybe on the lid but I don’t want to buy any pastel shadows to find out lol

Usually the inner corner of the lid. I can’t work pastels on lips, and I find most pastel blushes look powdery/ not flattering on me. And I just don’t use nail polish… I like the idea of it, but I just don’t have the time for that.

Being olive skinned, some pastels make me look like I’ve been lying in a mortuary for several days so I guess I might (depending on the shade) wear them on my cheeks and nails. That said I do have some lovely pink lipsticks that I’ll wear in summer. I tend to stay away from pastel eyeshadows tho’.

I like pastel nails. I also like pastel eyeshadow as a highlight on my browbone. I like metallic pastels on the upper lash line (really nice) and pastels as a subtle pop of color in the tear duct. I’m trying to get out my neutral eyeshadow rut!

Definitely on my eyes, more rarely on my nails, never anywhere else :). I’m not too much of a pastel lover, either, if I wanna be honest. I sometimes like pulling off a candy look on my eyes. I usually prefer greyed-muted tones when it comes to light colors.

Nails! Anywhere else and the color either looks ashy, doesn’t show up, or washes me out 🙁 But on nails I love light pastel pinks and blues!
