12 Gorgeous Eyeshadow Palettes Perfect for Spring and Summer
You’ve probably already revamped your wardrobe for the impending warmer weather. But we’re guessing you haven’t gotten around to refreshing your makeup. Heck, we just picked out our new stash of nail polish hues. The change of seasons means you should switch your eyeshadow shades to something more spring-friendly. Luckily, there are lots of lovely eyeshadow palettes for spring already on the market.
Most people think the season calls for pastel colors, but we urge you to think outside the palette this year. There are plenty of borderline neon hues and bold primary colors to choose from, after all. Whether you dare to rock a little daytime shimmer or simply go nude, the best eyeshadow palettes for spring are full of options. And most of our seasonal favorites encourage you to mix and match shades. Plus, most of these shadows are summer-appropriate. So you won’t have to swap them out for fresh palettes until fall.
Ready to spring forward? Here are 12 eyeshadow palettes for spring that’ll last straight through summer.
