As we shift from chilly winter to crisp and cool spring time our make up routine tends to change from bold and dramatic to something a bit lighter and fresher to suit the weather. It's time to pack away your palette of smoky browns and heavy eyeliner because this summer/spring is all about wearing the rainbow on your lids.
The trend of wearing a simple slick of colour on your eyelids is everywhere from the red carpet to Pinterest right now. The key shades are anything as long as it's a bold pastel tone, like lilac, orange, pink, blue or yellow. In terms of application we are simply covering our lids in a pop of colour and following with a quick slick of mascara.
The end result is simple, clean and fun (and a little attention-grabbing!). Keep the rest of your look laid-back (think glowing, dewy skin, nude lips and an elegantly bold brow) to let your eyes steal the show.
Because this trend isn’t about one colour in particular, but rather the whole rainbow of pretty pastel tones, there is a shade to suit everyone. It’s a good idea to have a few colours of the rainbow on hand this season to suit any occasion and any outfit.
The multi-toned LA Girl Beauty Brick Eyeshadow Palette in Neons is perfect if you want to play with a lot of these looks but the budget doesn’t quite stretch to a whole bunch of different single shadows...
