Pale pink dresses like Cinderella pink and blush pink are suitable for proms and for the bridesmaids’ dress. The makeup should be soft for such pink colored dresses. The lips painted in pale pink or peachy with a neutral makeup on the eyes, with a champagne color on the eyelids with liner and mascara, does a perfect job in aligning the entire day look for you.
