These New Eyeshadow Palettes Make A Case For Adding Bold Colors To Your Everyday Look


Here's a PSA for everyone who typically plays it pretty safe when it comes to eyeshadow: get ready to consider a serious change of pace. If Sephora's April 2019 eyeshadow palette arrivals are any indication, this season is going to be about playing with gorgeous, unexpected colors on your eyes — and that's some fun you certainly don't want to miss out on. So, get prepared and stock up on Sephora's freshly picked palettes, because they're all you need to shake up your makeup routine for spring, summer, and beyond.

It's officially spring, and hopefully you're feeling revitalized and ready to take on the fresh new season in style. But if you've been feeling a little stuck in a rut of the same old makeup day after day, Sephora's got the answer to your problems. The beauty store's new arrivals are bursting with bold, colorful eyeshadow palettes in just about every shade imaginable, and they're basically proof that unexpectedly bright shadows are the spring beauty trend you never knew you needed (until now).

Especially considering not just one or two, but several of the most popular beauty brands are offering up their own takes on unexpected eyeshadow palettes. Charlotte Tilbury's new, limited-edition The Icon Palette, $65, boasts a dozen eye-catching shades that can take you from demure during the day to disco queen thanks to Tilbury's expert color curation. And because the twelve shades are arranged into four three-color "looks", it's completely fool-proof to play around with color.

It would seem that warm weather destinations inspired many beauty brands' spring 2019 palettes, too, like Anastasia Beverly Hill's Riviera Palette, $45, and Viseart's Petite Pro 5 Soleil, $30. Each shadow set includes punchy shades you'd see in the tropics, like the Riviera Palette's glowing gold and hot pink hues, and Viseart's vibrant violet colors. Use them to create unconventional takes on a smokey eye that mimic the summer sky.

And if you couldn't possibly part with your go-to neutrals, there's still opportunity to get in on the season's color play. Opt for palettes like Stila's After Hours Eyeshadow Palette, $52, or Too Faced's Natural Lust Palette, $59, which combine super-wearable shades of brown, tan, and pink with bolder hues like emerald, orange, and peacock blue. Ease into the more eye-catching shades by using them to line your lids for a subtle, but impactful look.
