All Eyes On You: Eye Looks to Stand Out from your Mask!

‘Eyes are the window to your face’ – the saying can’t be more true today, with face masks becoming a staple in everyone’s routine. What better way to let your personality shine through than through your eye makeup. 

We don’t know about you but discovering a new beauty product will put a smile on your face and an even bigger smile when you find the perfect eye look for you. So we’ve compiled a list of eye looks that you can achieve with a single palette that would suit every color desire – from classic brown to bold metallic green!

Chromatics Sakura Nude Eyes

Looking to wear the warm spring weather on your eyes? Why not try Shu Uemura’s Chromatics palette in Sakura nudes – the nine shadows deliver a variety of warm and cool tones suitable for all skin tones. Double the coral color as blush on your cheeks to pair it with your cherry blossom eyes.

What we love most about this blossoming look is the number of ways you can switch around with the shades. Try using the deep matte auburn color for a clean cut crease or even use each color as a single shadow for a subtle no makeup-makeup look. 

Sunset Beauty Inspired Eyes

This sun kissed makeup looks effortless but top it off with a straight eyeliner and you have a natural blushing eye look. Pop the champagne color on to the inner corner of your eyes to make your eyes really stand out. Make sure to take advantage of the golden hour and take a picture of the look to let your eyes speak for itself!

We love the balance of shimmery/matte and brown/pink shadows from Em Cosmetics Divine Skies Eyeshadow Palette. Use a matte brown as a transition shade to the sparkly pink to emphasize the pink hues for a flawless finish.

 Iridescent Flirty Purple Eyes

You can’t go wrong with a Smokey eye for a sultry evening look. Emphasize the look with a glittery royal purple eyeshadow such as the one from the Anastasia Beverly HillXAmrezy Palette, perfect for those of you who are not shy to play around with colors and glitters.

Try playing around with the different colors to change out your makeup throughout the day. Start with a nude shadow in the morning, darken it up with rose gold during the afternoon and exaggerate the look with a magenta shadow for the evening! 

Peachy Bronze Metallic Eyes

We don’t know about you but we are obsessed with the peachy bronze look. The color combination of pink, bronze, champagne and brown color in Charlotte Tilbury’s Luxury Palette of Pops in Pillow Talk especially resonated with us for a romantic day look.

Shimmery shadows can be easily blended with your fingers – making it the perfect look for all you no-fret gals! Pair the look with a plum eyeliner to give so the colors don’t look flat. You can even layer the different nude pink shades to create a more dimensional effect.

Green Ombre Eyes

Looking to make a grand entrance at an evening party? This metallic green eye look is a definite show stopper. Compliment the green look with a fine gold shadow provided in Chanel’s Le Volume Revolution de Chanel in Jungle Green. This simple but bold look will compliment fairer skin tones and your dark eyes.

No need to layer lots of eyeshadows with this look, just simply run the luscious green shadow onto the entire eyelid and pack on the gold shadow on the center and voila you have yourself an effortless glam night out look!

Deep Blue Dramatic Eyes

Feeling naughty with colors? Try out a dramatic deep blue eyes that would compliment any evening look. Nail the look with a blue eye liner on the water line of your eyes and don’t forget, make sure to blend, blend, blend!

We know how hard it is to find a bold color with a good color pay-off so we recommend the Safari Eyeshadow Palette by Natasha Dedona. This luring eye look would look best for hooded eyes to show off the majestic blue aquamarine color.

Pops of Pastel Eyes

Pastels can be intimidating at first, but you’ll quickly notice how easy they are to pair with and how much impact they can have on your eyes. A good starter to pastel we recommend is Fenty Beauty Snap Shadows Mix & Match Eyeshadow palette in Pastel Frost.

Make use of the different contrasting tones to create this eye popping look. Nicely blend out the blue and pink pastels onto the upper lid and cast a natural shadow using a purple shade to achieve a fun and unique look.

Chocolate Inspired Smokey Eyes

We can’t talk about eye shadow looks without touching on a classic brown smoky look complimented with a feline black eyeliner. This timeless eye makeup look is perfect for day or night, summer or winter- you name it! You can always layer on the colours to  deepen the shape of your eyes.

If you’re looking for an ultimate brown eyeshadow palette with different shades and textures, Too Faced Born This Way The Natural Nudes Eye Shadow Palette is your calling. Experiment with the different colored undertones to customize your own personal brown eye look!
