For many, experimenting with different eyeshadow looks while in quarantine has been a great stress release and encourages them to spend time on their appearance each day despite staying at home. It’s the perfect situation in which to practice since no one will see you if you end up creating a look you’re not proud of. Makeup can be an outlet if you’re feeling low during this stressful period. If you’re a makeup lover who prides themselves on being on-trend, you need these palettes.
What better time to test out some bold neon shades than while you’re at home so much? Bright blues, greens, yellows, and reds have been dominating the eyeshadow trends online, so pick up a beautiful neon colored eyeshadow palette and try your hand at this wave of looks. The Neon Palette from DiTO Cosmetics has the perfect blend of bright, saturated, and statement-making shades. Make your neon dreams come true with an all-over swipe of color or a more intricate rainbow look. Pair your bright look with a big black cat-eye winged liner for a truly dramatic look that accentuates your eyes. Don’t forget to add an eye primer like Urban Decay’s Eden Primer to make sure your eyeshadows show up in full impact and last all day long.
If neons aren’t your speed and you feel more inclined toward a classic, muted look, opt for a neutral eyeshadow palette with all the shades you need for a put-together everyday look. These palettes are ideal for those of us who are still going into the office and are getting back into the swing of things at work. However, who said neutral had to be boring? The Saturn Shade Palette is one example of a neutral palette that is anything but one-note. It comes with nine shades of beautifully pigmented shadows in a variety of finishes: matte, shimmer, and glitter. If nine shadows feel like too few for your wildest eyeshadow fantasies, go for a larger neutral palette like the popular Morphe 35O Eyeshadow Palette.
Another great trend that transcends seasons and is fun to experiment with while in quarantine is using pastel-colored eyeshadow to create a youthful, innocent look while accentuating your eye color. Rihanna’s FENTY BEAUTY has nailed this eyeshadow trend with their Pastel Frost Snap Shadow Palette. It’s small enough that you do not have to feel locked in to the trend while still providing enough variety so that you can try all the looks you want to. Pastel eye looks can complement many different outfits, and can even function as accessories themselves if you’re wearing a rather simple outfit.
Who said you can’t have a little glamour in your life while in quarantine lockdown? Staying at home doesn’t mean not dressing up. You can dress up your eyes with a glamourous glitter eyeshadow look even if you’re not leaving the house. The Galaxy Shade Palette comes with plenty of different multi-dimensional glittery eye shades that will make your whole makeup look pop. The great thing about glitter eyeshadows is that many can be used wet or dry to completely change your whole look or to turn up the volume on your favorite shades. Tip: use a light-colored glitter eyeshadow on the inner corner of your eye to create the illusion that your eyes are larger and more open and awake looking. Or, tap a bit of glittery shadow in the center of your eyelid to create a rounder, more doe-eyed look.
