Reader Sylirael asked if I had done a post on aqua eyeshadows, and the last time I did one was back in ’11, so I thought three years later might be a good time to update my top five!

  1. Giorgio Armani #10 — a metallic, aqua-blue
  2. Sugarpill Mochi — a muted, aqua blue with a satin finish
  3. Inglot #345 — a minty, aqua green with a matte finish
  4. Make Up For Ever #93 — a bold, bright aqua-green
  5. Urban Decay Shattered — a gold-shimmered, muted aqua blue

What are your favorite aqua-hued eyeshadows?

Don’t be afraid of rocking blue eyeshadow! There are so many variations on blue, whether they lean green or purple, bright or muted, light or dark that can be worn. Here are five of my picks for spring:

  1. Sugarpill Mochi — a cool-toned, aqua blue with a matte finish
  2. Urban Decay Peace — brightened, vibrant medium blue
  3. Inglot #415 — a gold-shimmered, medium blue with a frost finish
  4. Illamasqua Sadist — a deep, dark, purple-blue with a matte finish
  5. L’Oreal Timeless Blue Spark — a medium, muted blue with a metallic finish

If gold isn’t quite your style when it comes to the holidays, how about silver? I personally love wearing silver as an eyeliner or as an eyeshadow base for a smoky eye.

  1. Lit Tinsel Town — a glittering, holographic silver perfect for adding sparkle and dazzle to any look
  2. Maybelline Silver Strike — a bright, metallic silver that’s easy to use as an eyeliner or as a cream eyeshadow
  3. Urban Decay Cuff — a bright, silver eyeliner with a soft metallic sheen
  4. NYX Ice Glitter — silver and holographic glitter top coat to add just that touch of wintry dazzle to your nails
  5. Inglot #447 — a bright, light metallic silver powder eyeshadow that opens and brightens the eye
