Who says bold, bright eye makeup colors have to be reserved for the warmer months? The reality is quite the opposite! Bright eye makeup is the perfect way to add a touch of sunshine to your winter makeup look, providing just the right amount of color to liven up a time of year typically centered around muted hues. If you want to add a bit of color to your own eye makeup look, you’ve come to the right place. Below, we’re sharing five bright eyeshadow palettes you can use this winter and beyond!
1. L’ORÉAL PARIS QUADS IN NEON SKIRT
Hello, color! If you want an eyeshadow palette that demands to be seen, the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Quads in Neon Skirt is just what you’re looking for. The palette includes four shimmery shades, with two bright hues among them. Gold, white, turquoise, and magenta are the eyeshadow colors you’ll find inside.
How to use it: First, color your lids with the beautiful gold shadow. Then highlight the eye by sweeping the white shade onto your brow bone and inner corner. Deepen the look by defining your crease with your first bright hue: turquoise! Make sure to thoroughly blend this vibrant shade with a fluffy eyeshadow brush. Complete your bright eyeshadow look by using a small flat top brush to drag the magenta shade along your lower lash line. Talk about making a statement!
2. L’ORÉAL PARIS POCKET PALETTE IN AVANT GARDE AZURE
Brighten up with the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Pocket Palette Eye Shadow in Avant Garde Azure! This beautiful blue eyeshadow palette holds four stunning blue hues that anyone can rock, but we particularly love the way the shades bring out blue and hazel eyes.
How to use it: Color your lids with the shimmery blue shade in the top row of the palette. Then define your crease with the remaining hue in that row. Highlight the center of your lids—and amp up the brightness—by popping the shimmery shade in the bottom row onto the center of each lid. Lastly, define your lash line with the matte navy eye shadow.
3. L’ORÉAL PARIS QUADS IN BLUE HAUTE COUTURE
Feeling blue? So are we—bright blue eyeshadow palettes, that is. The L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Quads in Blue Haute Couture is another option for those who are fans of ocean-inspired shades. The palette consists of a neutral, near-white beige, a deep seaweed green, an ocean blue, and a standout, bright turquoise.
How to use it: Paint your lids with the bright turquoise color for an instant wow factor. Then apply the light beige shadow to your inner corner and brow bone. Define your crease by blending the ocean-blue shade into place with a fluffy blending brush. Then line your lower lash line with the eye-catching seaweed green.
4. L’ORÉAL PARIS POCKET PALETTE IN VIOLET AMOUR
We have to praise bright purple eyeshadow palettes, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Pocket Palette Eye Shadow in Violet Amour. This purple palette contains four gorgeous purple shades, ranging from lilac to plum to eggplant.
How to use it: First, smooth the second shade in the top row onto your lids. Then deepen the look by defining your crease with the remaining shadow from the top row. Add even more depth to your bright eyeshadow look by pressing the first shade in the bottom row onto the center of each lid, highlighting your eyes for a wide-awake look. Last but not least, smooth the eggplant hue along your lash line to complete the look.
5. L’ORÉAL PARIS QUADS IN HOLLYWOOD ICON
Want to make a bit more of a statement but still love the idea of purple eyeshadow? The L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Quads in Hollywood Icon contains three pretty purple hues and an equally stunning golden yellow that’s destined to make you stand out.
How to use it: Color your lids with the lightest purple shade. Then brighten your eyes by applying the yellow shadow to your brow bone and inner corner. To deepen the look, sweep the medium purple hue into your crease. Finish the look by dragging the darkest purple shadow along your lower lash line.
