Spring is here and it’s time to put away our winter neutrals and break out some of that color! That can be intimidating for people like me who tend to steer clear of colorful eye shadow palettes. What colors do I choose? Where should they go? Generally speaking, I tend to go for more neutral single shades—something a little easier and harder to mess up. So, for the month of April, I challenged myself to welcome color into my life.
Colorful Eyeshadow Looks
Spring Eye Shadow Look #1
First I started with the Solar Flare PurePressed Eye Shadow Palette. This palette is a great balance of neutrals with a pop of color and the perfect first step to dipping my toes into this color challenge. The shades went on so smoothly and complements my complexion well. I used Sunspot on the lid, Flash on the outer corner, Cosmic for a soft liner to define the eye and Orbit for a pop of color on the lower lash line.
Spring Eye Shadow Look #2
Next up we had Pink Quartz PurePressed Eye Shadow Triple. The shades went so well with my eye color. This trio makes creating a look SO simple and I received so many compliments throughout the day. Pink Quartz ended up being my favorite palette of the three I tried. I paired it with Enchanted Glow Time Blush Stick for the perfect flushed look.
Spring Eye Shadow Look #3
At first glance, Blue Hour PurePressed Triple was daunting. When I saw three shades and one of them was black, I was pretty intimidated! But, I was pleasantly surprised when I tried this trio for the first time. I started by spraying my Deluxe Shader Brush with some Hydration Spray to grab a little more pigment. Instead of using the medium shade as the base, I opted for the lightest grey/blue and framed my lids with the other remaining shades. There were so many possible combinations for a variety of looks, I realized how creative I could be!
Lesson learned: You don’t need a special occasion to wear color! I loved having an opportunity to see how these can work in everyday look and how simple applying vibrant shades can be. Giving myself the gift of color was the perfect confidence boost and now I’m ready for Spring!
