This summer’s makeup trends will provide you with much more than just your expected golden glow: it’s all about major pops of color on the eyes.
First, we saw vibrant blue eye makeup all over the Spring 2016 runways, and then M.A.C. announced its Fashion Pack collection (which launches tomorrow) that’s all about jewel tones. It’s a pretty safe assumption that eye makeup with some serious pigment power is going to be a thing this summer. Just take a look at all of the newest palettes this season has to offer if you aren't convinced.
While many of these palettes contain an array of neutrals and bronzes to give our eyes that warm, summer bronze, you can expect some cold and colorful shades in each and every one. From the bright blue tones from the likes of M.A.C. and Dior to vibrant corals of Lancome—to an entire smorgasbord of gem-influenced shades from Ciaté and Urban Decay—this summer is all about making a statement with some seriously pigmented color.
We rounded up the 13 prettiest eye shadow palettes to make your beauty routine that much more convenient. Of course, we included palettes at every price point too, so you can keep your wallet happy.
