12 Colourful Eyeshadow Palettes When You're Feeling Bored of Neutrals
I have a tendency to stick to my comfort zone when it comes to makeup. On any given day, I have one go-to look that can be dressed up or pared down, depending on the occasion. If that didn't tip you off, I wear a lot of neutral eyeshadows. My makeup bag is stocked with a dizzying array of taupes and browns. But somewhere along the way—probably around the time I had bills and a commute and like (you, know, more adult responsibilities), I forgot how fun makeup can be. So, I'm here today to preach the benefits of adding colourful shadow into your repertoire; I've found it incredibly enjoyable to play with different colours and textures in my eyeshadow, and highly suggest livening up your own look.
These are the colourful eyeshadow palettes that are inspiring me to branch outside of my comfort zone. From Crayola-hues to pastels, these shadows will help you let a little loose with your beauty look.
These are some of the silkiest, most blendable shadows I've ever tried. Case in point: I forgot my makeup brushes while traveling and had to apply these shadows with my fingers—the end result didn't leave me feeling deprived in the slightest.
Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Moroccan Spice Eyeshadow Palette ($59)
"Versatile" is an overused term when it comes to makeup, but that's the best word for this palette. It has a mixture of neutrals and colors in a variety of finishes, which means you can create soft looks or full-on rainbow eyes. Plus, with Rihanna's stamp of approval, you know you're getting quality.
Pat McGrath Labs MTHRSHP Subversive La Vie En Rose Eyeshadow Palette ($55)
These colors look okay in the pan, but I swooned after applying them. They look so elegant and sumptuous and you will want them all on your eyelids immediately.
