An Eyeshadow Palette for Every Spring Occasion
March 24, 2015 by Tina Tovmasian
Spring is in, and I’ve done some research and trials to put together a list of cool eyeshadow palettes for the season. Whether you’re getting ready for a fancy Easter dinner, casual spring picnic or rocking out at Coachella, there is an eyeshadow palette here that will surely up your spring makeup game.
From peach, to purple, to blue this is your best friend for Easter. This palette has the perfect pastels to use for your Easter brunch or dinner. The darker shades like the “black diamond” are great for adding a little bit of sexiness to your eyes, because you don’t have to be a prude nude when it comes to your Easter eye makeup. Another reason why this eyeshadow palette is wonderful is because it includes a “lookbook” of ideas, tips and techniques on how to create different looks with the different colors.
It don’t mean a thing, if there ain’t no purple in spring. I really think this is the best purple palette, whether this spring or ever. It offers bold and subtle shades of purples to mix and match with. These shadows go on so smoothly and easily, you hardly have to use any to achieve the color that you see on the palette. The lighter to darker shades allow you to go from day to night time spring ready. The best part is these shadows last 8 hours, um hmmm that’s a whole work day.
I know this is not technically an eyeshadow palette but this is a new favorite because it’s compact, cheap and can take permanent residence in my makeup bag without taking up too much room. There are several selection of spring shades to choose from and they all come in a trio of colors. These are perfect for spring daytime looks and currently on sale for buy 1 get one free.
This palette from Kat Von D Chrysalis is awesome for its diverse colors and because it has 3 large shades to use as a base for whatever colorful look you end up with. It has a bright pink and bright blue shadow perfect for music festivals or sexy night outings but also has lighter pinks and peaches you can use for daytime spring looks. I definitely felt the use of the antioxidants and Vitamins (the shadows are created with rose extract and vitamins A, C and E) because my eyes felt hydrated and didn’t crease even after hours of wear.
If you’re into music festivals, you know that scoring an awesome wardrobe + look is as important as scoring the tickets. The Urban Decay Electric Palette has all the colors you need to achieve the perfect music festival look. There are ten vibrant shades and they all have serious stay-on power, lasting you all day and all night while you rock on. With shades like “revolt” “chaos” and “slowburn” what other eyeshadow palette can be better suited for Burning Man or Coachella?!?
This is your go to music festival palette on a budget. BH cosmetics is currently selling this gem of colors for only $7.95. The palette includes 32 shades of bright, bold and beautiful colors that are highly pigmented. There are four brilliant diamond shades that include “sparkle” for that extra glam you want to add. The lighter neutral colors like white, cream, beige are great to use as a base or to blend the darker colors into a lighter shade.
$3.99 for 16 shades? Ok I’ll bite. This palette has lots of fun spring colors that will complement any floral or bright spring outfit. It includes matte colors when you want to keep your shadow a little more muted and shimmer colors for a fancier and funner look. At $3.99 you can throw this puppy in the car and know you’re covered on those last minute nights out after a no-makeup work day. I suggest using an eyeshadow primer prior to applying, as these shadows won’t last as long as the high-end brands.
