How to Wear Colorful Eye Shadows and Eyeliners

Last spring’s beauty trends involved gorgeous and delicate pastels, but this spring we’ve opted for a little more oomph. We’ve incorporated three vivacious colors – greens, blues, and purples – to show you how to wear these colorful eye shadows, eyeliners, and eye shadow sticks. We recommend Clinique’s Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes or Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Stick because these beauty products work as wonderful multitaskers.
The eye shadow stick works as well as eye shadow primer because its formula allows the eye shadow to adhere better to your lids while intensifying the color of your choice.
Fashion Gone RogueAlthough the eye shadow stick works the same as powder eye shadow, they differ in how the product is applied. For instance, the eye shadow stick is quick and easy to use as you swipe the product over each lid. If necessary, use a blending brush to help distribute the color more evenly or neatly. Pick any of the three spring colors to add a beautiful brightness to your face while also creating a breathtaking appearance.
For another popular but more subtle look, keep your eyelids bare while adding a pop of color (or all three) to the inner corner of your eyes – adding nothing else but mascara (although it can be done with a cat eye if you so choose). This style is striking and beautiful but most of all unsuspecting.
Lastly, despite the eye shadow stick having a thicker tip, it can still be used in the same way as a regular eyeliner crayon or pencil. A thicker line with colorful eyeliner is a unique and distinctive combination, so you might as well dare to be bold with a strong cat eye, winged-eye, or graphic eye.

In case the eye shadow stick is not for you, these stunning makeup ideas can still be achieved with your typical powder eye shadow or basic eyeliner. Alternate suggestions for this look include: Stila ‘Stay All Day’ Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner, Pop Beauty Eyeliner Pencil, and Morphe Individual Eye Shadow.
We encourage you to try these gorgeous colors because they’re invigorating, upbeat, and it’s time to break out and enjoy spring!
