6 Spring 2022 Eyeshadow Looks To Make Your Eyes POP!
The top trending eyeshadow colors for spring
What could be more exciting than warmer temps and more daylight? Why, new eyeshadow colors for spring, of course. Pastels may not be groundbreaking as the Devil Wears Prada has taught us but not to worry, we have the hottest takes on spring eyeshadow colors that will make your eyes pop. And here’s a hint: they’re unexpected and seriously fresh. Now if only planning our spring wardrobes were this easy!
Easy Being Green
We are all green with envy over season two of Euphoria where green eyeshadow reigned supreme. We’re just going to say it, green is the hottest eyeshadow color for spring (even beauty bible Allure agrees). Not only does the verdant shade conjure up feelings of abundance and joy, but it also has an impressive range to suit your every need and occasion. If we had to choose a favourite, it’s easily shimmery olive green, as seen on the models at the Jason Wu spring show. It’s moodier than you’d expect for the season.

This icy shadow shade isn’t just a wintery staple. Silver was spied on the Hui Spring Summer runway and recent red carpets by A-list celebs like Jessica Chastain and Sandra Oh. The frosted shade feels fresh as an eyeshadow color for spring because it catches the light just right and suits every eye color.

Sure, blue eyeshadow often gets a bad rap for being labelled as a bad 80s throwback but we love the modern moodier takes for spring that feel unexpected (again, shout out to Euphoria’s Kat and Cassie for the shadow inspo!). Think graphic, winged eyeshadow looks, baby blue accents teamed with navy, and overall, the brighter and fresher feels blue eyeshadow serves up for spring.

BeautyTok may have taught us the bronzer-as-shadow hack but we have Tom Ford to thank for spring’s sexiest eyeshadow shade: bronze. The glam bronzed-babe look adorned models’ lids at his spring/summer show giving new meaning to the term bronze goddess. Swipe the shimmery metallic shade over eyes, from lids up to the eyebrows for a shadow look that seriously sizzles.

Pretty in Pink
Pink is a perennial fan favorite among top eyeshadow colors for spring because it just gives us life this time of year, not to mention it reminds us of spring flowers! Whether we’re talking delicate shades of peony or brighter punches of coral, there is a pink for everyone this season when it comes to eyeshadow. Be inspired by Jennifer Hudson and go for delicate pastel pink dusted on lids. If you’re feeling bold, try the look seen on the Anna Sui spring runway and reach for a shimmery pink metallic that’s sure to turn heads.

If you’re not so much a fan of bold eyeshadow colors for spring, may we present pure white, a chic alternative to color, courtesy of Lady Gaga at the Sag Awards. We’re calling this a power shade for spring because it’s bold, unexpected and oh so fresh. Go ahead and swipe a graphic white liner to your crease that you can most certainly wear before Memorial Day.
