Pump Up Your Palette: Must-Own Spring Eye Shadows

By  March 14, 2013

1. In the Garden Palette by Stila, available at ULTA for $39
As nature makes its transition from winter to spring, the colors surrounding our day-to-day lives have inevitably begun to change. Blossoming blush-color flowers, clear blue skies, and budding green plants are not only exciting indications of warmer weather, but they’re also the shades to begin incorporating into your beauty routine this season. Stila’s botanical-inspired In the Garden Palette features 10 hues that do just that.

2. Big Beautiful Eyes by Benefit Cosmetics, available at ULTA for $32
With warmth, sunshine, and new life being the central themes of the season, makeup mavens will want to make the transition toward brighter eyes in the coming weeks. Leave dark shades behind with winter and go with a palette that will illuminate those peepers with big, beautiful results. With a soft pink shadow and other brightening and contouring tools, our palette pick from Benefit is your source for achieving that daily glow this spring.

3. Natural at Night Neutral Eye Shadow Collection by Too Faced, available at ULTA for $36
For spring nights out, achieve a sultry look with shadow more appropriate for the season than fall and winter’s smoky eye. This gorgeous palette by Too Faced, which combines both matte and glimmering colors, is a softer take on evening eye shadow. Though the result is still seductive and glamorous enough for evening, the fresher, more natural shades are much lovelier for spring.
