Unlike coral that can be equally a Summer shade as it is a Spring one, pastels will always be Spring shades, in my mind. Lilacs and baby pinks are the perfect transitional colors from Winter's plums and reds to Summer's brights. They offer a touch of soft color that is lovely on pre-Summer skin that has not yet seen much sun.

Usually when I wear pale, pastel-like shades, I stick to the safe lavenders and pinks and avoid the minty greens and sky blues out of fear of the unknown, although I have to admit, this new cream pigment from Illamasqua is awfully tempting...
It's from their upcoming Toxic Nature collection and it's in the shade Bedaub. Gorge!
