Spring Eyeshadow Colours You Should Start Wearing | Clozette

It's that time of the year again to say goodbye to burgundies and browns and say hello to cheeky pops of colours for spring. Now, it can be exciting to start playing with rich and fun colours, especially on our lids, to celebrate the time of blooming and rebirth, but overdoing it can sometimes lead to an MOTD-isaster. 

So to make sure your peepers will look perfect this season, here are the colours you should try on your lids and the best ways to wear them. 

--------------------------

Blue green



It can come off as too strong for your base colour if the look you're going for is for a typical date night, but taking a hint from this year's Pantone colour, this darker variety is perfect for replacing the deep colours you used during fall and winter for your smoked crease. 

Orchid purple



Bloom with the flowers this season with this bright shade of purple. Perfect for people who want to highlight their eyes or frame their face better, match this eye look with a neutral nude lippie for a well-balanced look.

If you're going for a more subtle look but still want that fresh spring vibe, this colour is for you. Give your lids a quick sweep, or thinly smoke out your lashline with this colour for an MOTD that screams fun and sweet. 


Shimmery champagne

As beautiful as it is, this shade is often used as a transition colour and nothing more. But this time, why not give its shimmery variant a try? If going too bold for spring is not your cup of tea or if you prefer to focus more on your lips, this colour gives your peepers a nice pop without being overpowering.

Still don't want to let go of bold burgundy eyes from last season? Switch it up just a bit with this shade! Exude edginess and intensity with its warm and deep tones but still have the subtle vibe from the pink to balance out the look, making it a wearable even during spring.

Liquid lipsticks are on the top of their game — 2016 was their year, with every brand you can think of releasing their own version, and 2017 is looking to be the year they expand beyond the classic matte finish. Case in point: A number of brands have already come out with metallic liquid lipsticks and more are planning to release theirs within the year. 

However, if you think these lipsticks are anything similar to ones you knew from the 90’s and early 2000’s, you’re wrong. This modern finish is not frosty or shimmery, it’s metallic — high shine, sophisticated, and edgy.

So if you’re looking to stock up on this new trend, keep reading for the five best metallic liquid lipsticks that are already out in the market.
