Shimmer Eye Shadow for Spring

Shimmer Eye Shadow for Spring

Spring is a great time to try out some new eye makeup looks and opt for lighter and more shimmery eye shadow shades. Lighter colours can help to open your eyes and make them appear brighter and more awake, which is perfect for making your whole face appear more radiant. We love to try out all sort of shades and colours here at Lookfantastic, but we think springtime is perfect for adding shimmery and radiant eye makeup into our routines.

    Pixi Lid Last Shadow Pen - Gentle Gold

    We love this chubby pencil from Pixi as it is so easy to work with. The colour is a gorgeous pale gold, which is universally flattering on all skin tones. The formula is super smooth and glides on easily and quickly to leave your lids with a gorgeous wash of colour. As the shadow is enriched with Vitamin E, it also helps to keep the skin on your lids healthy and protected. We love to apply this when we are in a rush and need to do our eye makeup quickly and without fuss!

    Lancôme Ombre Hypnôse Mono Sparkles Eye Shadow – Rose Étoile

    Keep your eyes bright and sparkling this Spring with this gorgeous eye shadow from Lancôme. We love its pale pink/lilac shade, which highlights eyes without looking too heavy. Wear on its own for a subtle shimmer, or for more dramatic impact, wear with the Lancôme Cream Shadow Stick in Violet Eternel by using it on the outer corners of your eye and to line the lid.

    This gorgeous trio of lilacs is perfect for the Spring months. You can use them as shadows or take a fine brush and use them to line and brighten your eyes. We love to apply these wet to achieve a fresh twist on the classic smokey eye! Simply blend onto the eye, starting with the lightest shade and use the darker shades to blend in the outer corners and into the socket line.

    L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Eye Shadow Palette – Nude Rose

    This gorgeous palette from L’Oréal Paris is made up of both matte and shimmering shades, which can be layered together to create a sparkling effect. Swipe the matte shades on first to create a base, and then apply the shimmering colours over the top for a dramatic effect. We love the pinks and bronzes in this palette which can be used if you don’t like the harshness from a traditional smokey eye.
