If you live in the Northern Hemisphere, Spring will be coming in full force pretty soon. I already see the wild flowers growing and bushes budding up for their new flowers. So for in today’s post, I think I’d share palettes that give me spring vibes.
When I think of “spring vibes” I think of three main color stories: medium pinks, soft mauves and all kinds of yellow/greens. So, here’s some eyeshadows with these color stories in mind.
Colourpop’s Sweet Talk 12-Pan Palette
A palette I always loved to look at, Sweet Talk is a spring release from a few years back. I love that it comes with such a variety of textures: matte, their supershock formula, pressed glitter and metallic.
The color story is beautiful and cohesive, yet gives you enough tones and textures to create a lot of different looks. The coral-pinks are my absolute favorite and this is the first palette that I think of.
This palette costs $18 regular price on Colourpop’s website.
Colourpop’s Lil Ray of Sunshine All Matte 9-Pan Palette
Another palette that quickly comes to mind, this soft yellow-toned palette looks like nothing special in the pans, but the swatches are beautiful.
This is a very approachable mustard yellow palette, but comes with a lot of yellow-toned cool and warm colors that compliment the middle shade well. There’s also two darker shades at the bottom to deepen the look.
It’s also all matte, and although I love shimmers, I’m not opposed to an all matte palette. The outer packaging has lovely little sunflowers which tie in nicely with the spring theme.
This palette is regularly $14 on Colourpop’s site.
Elf Cosmetics Bite Size Eyeshadow Palette in Rose Water
A more softer color on this list, this quad from Elf is apart of their popular bite-size eyshadow line. This color story in particular reminded me of spring: very soft mauves with a dark outer corner color.
What’s extra amazing about this palette is the price: it’s only three dollars!
Probably one of the best products under five dollars you can find. It’s formula is more on the buttery side, not as dry as Colourpop’s, but certainly not slippy. It’s also great for when we travel again for a cute everyday look with little effort.
Rose All Play Eyeshadow Bouquet
Physician’s formula doesn’t have a lot of eyeshadow palettes, but this one is so pretty. The rose designs and baby pink packaging are adorable.
It’s shade selection is decent, but comes with a lot of pressed glitters. It’s also a little harder to work with as I’d recommend wetting your eyeshadow brush before using, especially with the glitters.
Although it’s not the best palette formula-wise, it’s very pretty and can be a good soft palette.
The price of this palette is anywhere for $9 to $18, so shop around!
Dose of Colors Marvelous Mauves Eyeshadow Palette
A bit of an older palette, I always loved the look of these Dose of Colors palettes. They’re albeit a bit expensive for the number of shades, but I always heard they are great quality.
Mauves are such pretty colors for spring, and if you wanted an all-matte version upgrade from the mini Elf palettes, I think these could be a good alternative. It also comes with a decent duel-ended brush as well.
It’s regularly $32 on their website.
Natasha Denona Mini Retro Eyeshadow Palette
Remember when I included Natasha Denona palettes on my “Brands I’ll Never Buy From” list? These mini palettes are my one exception when it comes to her eyeshadow palettes.
I love the colors: a shimmery gold, two muted greens and two soft pinks. You can really do a more natural look, or go bolder with the green-tones.
She has very pretty minis for $25. If you want a travel palette, or want a small selection of top quality shadows, consider getting the Mini Retro.
Colourpop Blush Crush 9-Pan Palette
The final palette is one of my favorites: a very soft pinky-brown palette. It comes with two light transitions, a darker transition shade, three shimmers and two mattes with glitter.
In the middle is the star of the show: a pink shade that I wear every time. It works as an all over the lid shade, a transition shadow or a touch of color to a lighter look.
This palette screams spring vibes, it’s such a soft, girly color story but it’s also great for every day wear as an alternative to brown neutrals.
This palette usually costs $14.
So there you have it: my top picks for spring 2021! I tried to have a good variety of tones, textures and price ranges. What about you? What are your favorite eyeshadow colors for spring?
