I thought that I would take a little break from posting reviews and go back to one of my favourite features – “Top 5…”. Today I’m going to be telling you all about my Top 5 Spring Eyeshadows!
Before I start, it’s important to note that this is just my opinion – it’s totally fine if you don’t think the colours are particularly spring-like, or if you wouldn’t wear them. I guess it’s just a personal list 🙂
Even though I’m numbering them, they’re not really ordered by how much I like them – I just like to keep things organised!
1. MUA Eyeshadow in Shade 16
When I think of spring, I think of fresh and clean shades and looks, and looks like that need a good base! I absolutely adore this eyeshadow from MUA Cosmetics – and it costs just £1!
I also adore the fact that it is a matte shade – it just makes for an even, fresh base which can help other shadows to ‘pop’.
2. ELF 32 Colour Palette – Pastel Lilac
If you watch my YouTube videos you’ll know how much I love this palette – I use it in so many tutorials, and the colours are so versatile. Although there are so many colours to choose from, I decided to single out one of the more pastel shades – a gorgeous lilac.
Even though some people may consider purple to be more of a winter shade, this is more of a lilac colour – I think it looks gorgeous in spring time looks, especially alongside more neutral tones.
3. Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow in Penny
Is it bad that the first thing I think of when I type ‘Penny’ is The Big Bang Theory?!
Anyway, I digress. I think this shade is a great example of a ‘spring neutral’; it’s not quite so dark that it could be considered a winter shade but not so red-toned that it’s more of an autumn colour. I think it works really well as a fun spring shade.
I also love that it’s got a little bit of shimmer to it too – I will be using this in a few looks for sure!
4. MUA Pretty Pastels Eyeshadow Palette – Powder Blue
Even though I’m not a huge fan of pastels in general, I do really like one of the shades from this MUA palette – the powder blue colour.
Although I wouldn’t necessarily use this on its own, I’d love to work it into a fresh blue eye make up look. I think it could look gorgeous towards the inner corner and give a fun spring twist to the look.
5. Blink + Go No.5 Pink Eyeshadow
I’ve grown fonder of this Blink + Go palette over time, and one of the colours within it really stood out for me when I was deciding on my favourite spring eyeshadows. It’s this gorgeous pink shade:
I think it’s somewhere in the middle of a bright and pastel pink – it has elements of both, and really reminds me of a lot of the flowers you see around this time of year. A really pretty colour that could be used with white and cream shades to create a spring-inspired eye make up look.
Which eyeshadows have you been loving lately? Which really remind you of spring?
