If Winter called for an official pick-me-up treat, it might just be fairy floss. When it comes to this spun-sugar confection, its traditionally pastel hues are the perfect inspiration for some pretty sweet makeup looks. For a playful style that suits most, pair candy-toned lipstick or gloss with a bright blue eyeliner. To get an edgier look, use a smudgy black eyeliner instead. And for an everyday style, go monochromatic with pink on the eyes, cheeks, and lips; just be sure to add dimension with a medium to dark brown mascara and eyeliner. So think pink, and shop the above products below:
OPI Nail Polish in Coney Island Cotton Candy ($19.95), a sheer, warm, light pink. Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Cotton Candy ($21.95), a semisheer pink with a touch of shimmer. Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Blush in Cotton Candy ($42.50), a natural-flush blush with a hint of gold sparkle. Marble Nail Polish in Cotton Candy (approx $10), a trio of pastel polishes for marbled effects.
