5 Shades of Winter for Eyes

5 Shades of Winter for Eyes

It’s hard to find a really awesome aqua eyeshadow, because aqua tends to be a lighter color–almost pastel–that they can be sheer and/or chalky (or just powdery). Sometimes they lean blue, other times they lean green.

  1. MAC Weathered — darkened, mtued stormy blue
  2. Buxom Husky — icy winter blue
  3. bareMinerals On the Rocks — iridescent blue-violet
  4. Maybelline Too Cool — cool, snowy white
  5. MAC Keep Your Cool — dirty, gray taupe

5 Uplifting Light Blue Eyeshadows

I love a good sky blue/pastel blue eyeshadow, especially for spring, but it also can work really with more summery colors as a way to tone down some of the vibrancy of those brighter hues.

  1. Buxom Husky — light ethereal blue with a soft frosted finish
  2. MAC Styledriven — light-medium blue with a soft frosted finish
  3. Make Up For Ever #150 — pale sky blue
  4. Urban Decay Clash — vibrant sky blue with sparkle
  5. Bare Escentuals Illusion — pale pastel blue

Stay-There Eyeshadows have a spongy quality that reminds me of memory foam; you can press it, and it will slowly spring back to form. You can jab at it with a pencil, and you’ll end up shifting it around more than anything! These actually launched well before Chanel Illusion d’Ombres, which have a similar texture.
