23 Eyeshadow Color Stories for Summer-Into-Fall Inspiration

I’ve put together 23 different color combinations that might inspire your next eyeshadow look as we head into fall 🙂 They’re more often colorful than strictly neutral, as that was the mood I was in, but there are a few less bright/vibrant takes, too. You can peruse my past color stories for other options!

About This Series

Each look idea is centered around a “quad” of four shades with the expectation that one might bring in the appropriate brow bone or additional transitional shade based on skin tone. I know that I tend to use more like five or six shades in a typical look, but I think that four is a happy medium to give a good idea of the “core” color scheme of a look while giving you the ability to lighten/darken as desired. I have listed the colors in this order: inner lid, middle of lid, outer lid/crease, and crease/above crease.

You might see combinations that seem slightly repeated but placement will vary (e.g. a halo placement where the lightest and more shimmery shade is placed on the center) as placement can also create a different effect/look! You might also want to consider incorporating your favorite matte/shimmer shades (as applicable) to increase the versatility of certain palettes. Consider these ideas a jumping off point!

Lovely combinations, as always Christine. I am quite liking the ones you did with ND’s Bronze…
I also liked Desert Dreams, To Earth – for cooler tones, Bittermelon. I generally use only 2-3 eyeshadows at the moment, so the vibrant shades are calling me in these quads.

I see sooo many lovely combos I’d love to try! Mainly ones using either Melt She’s In Parties Palette or ND Bronze Palette. (Those two palettes would actually work nicely with each other!) A few using SG singles, too.

Ditto! I don’t have MELT though so I’ll have to find dupes, but I did find that most of the ones I liked were from those palettes an a few Sydney Grace ones.

Very pretty ideas! My favorite is Gotham Nights! And now I know that the Lilac Breasted Roller is a beautifully colored bird 🙂

I think it’s time to search my stash for my favorite fall colors and get ready for the season. Thanks for putting these together!

I love when you do these! I honestly would not think to put some of those shades together (mainly because I don’t pull all my pallets out and just LOOK at what I have I think) but I find them so inspiring!
I can’t wait to go home and see what I have that is similar to try and utilize the quads. Thank you so much for all your efforts. Hope you have a great weekend!

These are such a lovely range of looks. I’m always partial to your green color combos as I have brown eyes and desperately wish there were more greens in the world, but I’m surprised at how much I like some of the others such as Gotham Nights and Plumful Morning. All of these color stories really do feel like the perfect seasonal transition looks, and there’s a bit of everything if you look more warm neutral or colorful shades.
