4 Brilliant Looks Using Bright Eye Shadows

Whether you are gearing up for the party of the year or you are simply interested in making your outfits pop a little, consider what bright eye shadow can do for you. Say goodbye the gentle neutral browns and mushrooms of the past winter, and say hello to some bright golds, magentas and peacock blues. Color is back in in a big way, and eye shadow is a great way to throw some color onto your appearance. Choose one of these fabulous ways to put bright eye shadow on your eyelids.

Using Bright Eye Shadow Shades To Create Fun Makeup Looks

* Subtle Sparkle

If you love the bright shades but you are not yet ready to commit, consider a subtle effect using a single shade of bright, nearly electric eye shadow. Place a single, sweeping line of bright eye shadow right on your lower lash line, and then make sure that you give yourself plenty of mascara to slightly obscure it. Choose neon green or a vibrant peacock blue for this effect, and you will get a delicate glimmer all night.

* Smoky Shadowing

To give your eyes a smoky look, start by outlining your eyes in black pencil and then brush on a base eyeshade that is just a little darker than than your own skin tone. Then go over this eye shadow with something substantially brighter using a pointed sponge applicator, contouring your eye and surrounding it completely. This brighter color should blend well with the pencil line and give your eyes a wonderfully smoky look. Choose a jade green or a bright turquoise for this effect.

* Peacock Glamour

For a nighttime party look, take a lesson from the proud peacock. This look uses several bright shades of eye shadow and it creates a wonderfully metallic look. Start by applying a thin layer of gold eye shadow to your eyelid, spreading it all the way up to your eyebrow. Use a lime or jade green eye shadow to fill in the space from the middle of the eyelid to the outer corner, and then fill the space from the inner corner of the eye to the middle using a purple eye shadow. Place a streak of blue eye shadow at the place where the two meet, and then blend the entire area together gently using your finger.

* Layered Looks

For a very bright look, use two eye shadows of the same color in different shades. Start by brushing the darker shade of the eye shadow color over the lid, and then sweeping the lighter shade from the top of the lid to the brow bone. Leave the line between the two shades distinct, and you’ll find that you are in a terrific place to get an eye-popping look. If you want to be a little more daring, choose two complimentary colors instead of using two shades of the same color. Green and purple, red and gold, and blue and green are some of the choices in front of you.

If you are in a situation where you are invested in changing you look, bright eye shadow may be just the right route for you to take. It is subtle enough that you do not risk drawing stares, but it can also be used in a way that allows it to dramatically change your appearance. When purchasing your colors, make sure that you have an electric blue, a warm magenta, a jade green and a silver or gold of your choice to get the most use out of your selection.
