It finally happened! Toronto got an actual SPRING weather weekend! Hooray!
So this Sunday I ditched my winter coat for a belted shawl + hat look instead.
I was invited to a photoshoot at High Park…and was asked to wear pastel colours for makeup. I’m not a big makeup kinda girl in the first place, but I was a bit intimidated of how to make pastels work for my darker complexion. With the help of Google and with Rimmel having a sale at Shoppers….here’s my attempt at pastel eyes and lips for the day.
In hindsight, the light grey lacy-back sweatshirt and silk scarf I wore under the houndstooth shawl did not keep me warm enough….especially after 7pm once the sun went down. But, fashion before function, right? Right!
How I Got The Look:
Outter: Shawl from Reitmans; Cobalt pants from Old Navy; Rhinestone nude flats from Payless; Black belt from Lane Bryant; Hat from Vintage Clothing Show
Inner: Grey lace sweatshirt from Pennington’s; Oriental printed scarf from Vintage Clothing Show;

Pastel make up difficult on your beautiful skin – no! Try being a pasty-white pudding like me! Pastels either make me look like I have a rash or am cyanotic! LOL
The makeup is stunning!
I find that wearing bright blues don’t really work for me, but I need to find a way to do it since I have blue hair. Blue pants might be a little too daring for me.
