Forget about subtle nudes and standard smoky evening looks, this season’s eyeshadows are all about being bold, being creative and approaching your look with more than a sprinkling of flair.
Trying out a bright new shade can feel daunting. Nobody wants to end up looking like Pat Butcher, after all. But finding your perfect shade can make your eyes look seriously dazzling.
From golden shadows and sunset shades, to bright pink peepers and rich purple lids, there are a lot of bright shades which are right on trend for spring and summer 2017. Not every colour will suit every skin tone or set every eye colour off to it’s greatest advantage. However, there are some fantastic eye and eyeshadow combinations which can make your baby blues, greens and browns seriously sparkle.
Here are a few of our favourite bold eyeshadow pairings…
Blue & Gold
If you have beautiful blue eyes, sunset shades really are the best for making your eyes dazzle. Golds, light browns and peaches are best if you don’t want to make too much of a statement, but to channel this season’s bright, bold and poppy trend, opt for burnt oranges and flame yellows.
Brown & Blue
Contrast is everything when it comes to brown eyes and a rich navy blue is the perfect choice if you really want to make your pupils pop. Rich greens can have the same effect, just make sure you’re choosing strong, jewel tones and don’t skimp on the application. High saturation, statement shades seriously work this summer.
Green & Purple
There’s something gorgeously “heather-y” about blending green eyes with a rich purple eyeshadow. With a major dose of mysterious romance, this dramatic combination makes eyes of this shade look startling green. Choose a rich, jewel-like amethyst shade to make it work for you.
