Summer Eye Makeup Looks: Try Something New

Bright color eyeshadow palette

As much as I try to venture out and try something new when it comes to eye makeup, I admit that I always fall back to my neutral color eye makeup rut. I don’t even know what happened to the NARS blue eyeshadow I had awhile back. I probably used it only a few times.

Being that it’s summer and there are a few events I’ll be attending in August, I revisited the idea of trying something new with all the fun, colorful eyeshadow palettes that are available this season. For instance, pictured here to the right is the “Paranormal” palette from Illamasqua which looks exotic and fun. View eye shadows by Illamasqua here.

I don’t know if I would wear all the colors together, but after going through Pinterest and seeing all the different looks I could create with fun colors like these, I may just go on an eye makeup adventure again. Here are a few looks I came across that inspired me…

I like this summer look that blends neutral colors with bright colors. I would probably wear no blush and a nude lipstick with this look so my face wouldn’t be on color overload.

Ok, so maybe bold colored eyeshadow just isn’t your thing. I’ve noticed many women this summer wearing eyeshadow in fun colors, like this bright blue eyeliner…

The one color I do love is purple, and I have plenty of shades of purple in my eye makeup collection. It’s a smokey eye look that I might have to try…

Mint and gold eyeshadow combination is hot for this summer as well. I like the video tutorial below that features these colors because it’s so easy to do. I don’t know if I have the patience or time to layer colors like the first look I talked about above.

Which of these summer eye makeup looks do you fancy?
