[by Jung Ah Young/ translated by Yanchingsally Chu] It is still very cold but spring has already sprung for the beauty industry.

Getting ahead of seasons, the beauty industry has no choice other than giving up trendy styles and makeup if it cannot catch up with the changes in a fast pace. Pantone announced that the representative colors in 2016 are ‘Rose Quartz’ and ‘Serenity’.

You can feel calm by just looking at the two pastel colors. Their gentle and delicate charms allow you to indulge in the mood for spring. The pastel makeup trend will be introduced here.

Lancôme Releases the Pastel Collection

Lancôme launched its pastel collection in January and took a pictorial of the brand muse Han Ji Min. She transformed into short hair boasting her lovely and refreshing smile.

A pink glow that reminds one of the spring matched with soothing coral lip makeup helps ooze her femininity. Lancôme launched its spring collection with the theme ‘From LANCOME with Love’. This makeup collection is inspired by cubes and crayons that we played in our childhood.

It consists of various items such as ‘My Parisian Pastel’, in which nine neo pastel colored cubes are included to be used versatilely as shadows or blushes and ‘My Parisian Cushion’ that is an limited edition with a sensational silver case package.

Vely Vely’s ‘Strawberry Milk Lips’

Possessing a small face and a lovely smile, Imvely is the role model of 2030 women who want to follow her styles. To make all women to become prettier and lovely, she sincerely established a cosmetic brand, Vely Vely, which launched new products that bring up the mood for spring.

The new items include six Vely Vely Sliding Butter Crayon Lipsticks. Among them, Strawberry Butter that gives a strawberry-like fresh and gentle feeling has a pastel pink color fitting makeup trends in 2016.

It is highly pigmented and glides on smoothly and softly with its dense texture to keep a lovely and long-lasting pink shade on your lips. It has a built-in cushion tip allowing you to do perfect lip makeup effortlessly. To pull off a pure and feminine vibe, Apricot Butter is another worth noting one.

Dior’s Backstage Makeup

At the trend-leading backstage of fashion shows, pastel tone — undoubtedly — is in the limelight. At the launch of Dior S/S 2016 Collection, the creative makeup and image director of Dior, Peter Phillips, introduced translucent and soft pastel makeup for spring.

At the backstage of this collection, ‘Dior Lip Glow’ that is the bestseller of the brand, ‘Dior Addict Lipstick’ that has been popular since it was released last September and new products in 2016 could be seen. They are all available in soft pastel colors.

The combination of natural base makeup, pink blush that brightens up your face and light pink dewy, glowing lips completes trendy pastel makeup with no difficulties for everyone. (photo by Vely Vely, Dior, Pantone, Han Ji Min’s official Facebook)
