Eyeshadow can be a double-edged sword. It can be one of the
first things people see and that’s generally the whole point. A pretty eyeshadow look can invite them in while a mistake can cause a few awkward glances.
wrong answer here. Well… that’s not true if we’re honest. There are plenty of ways to mess up your eyeshadow (I’ve probably done all of them by now), but pretty is in the eye of the beholder. I’m pretty sure that’s the saying. We’ve gone through thousands of different looks and styles to bring you our favorites and there’s bound to be something you like the look of.
Whether it’s a look you want to copy or some inspiration, we’ve also included a few video tutorials to help you get the look you want. This is a great place to show off your
own style and personality too.
We’re starting this collection with this pretty pink eye look. We’ve got a nice warm transition shade and a subtle pink shimmer lid shade lined with a chrome pink liner in the crease.
This is such a pretty look. I love the combination of purples, greens, and pinks. We’ve also got a nice blue shimmer inner corner shade.
I like how the browns complement the green undereye shade. I’m a huge fan of looks that are generally very neutral but have the slightest pop of color!
This looks absolutely stunning! Look at the mixture of blues and greens. I love how vibrant the green shimmer shade is on the lid! The large wing also ties everything nicely together.
If you’re a fan of Spring, then you’re going to love this! First, we’ve got this nice smokey liner with a cut crease on top. Then above that, we have these gorgeous dried flowers. I feel like a fairy princess!
Keep it dazzling with this beautiful purple glitter wing. There are also some nice drawn-on purple lower lashes and the eyebrow is highlighted with some purple glitters.
I love how a really vibrant blue looks with some colors that are a bit more muted. Here we’ve got this gorgeous gold cut crease with a blue to violet to red gradient.
This eye look reminds me of Ariana Grande! She loves to wear these really bright cut creases, except they don’t have that much pop of color.
We’re working with some deep reds and vibrant blues and pinks on this look. I love the contrast between the red crease and the blue shimmer shade. The lower blue lashes also perfectly contrast the pink shadow below it.
Onto simpler pink looks. Here we’ve got a rounded edge and a nice silver glitter separating the two pink shades.
Sometimes, all you need is a lot of colors to have a nice day. Try out this fun rainbow look! I really enjoy the three shades of green used here, especially the glitter inner corner.
I love how the purple crease shade blends from a really stiff curve to a beautiful gradient. The pink to blue ombré lid shade is also beautiful and matches the purple lower lashline.
This eyeshadow look reminds me too much of Euphoria. I love how the purple isn’t too opaque and how it still blends roughly with the pink lid shade. The glitter inner corner is the perfect ender to this look.
Spring has come and I’m here for it! I love this vibrant blue eye look topped with some lovely daisies on top. The white inner corner and liner match the look perfectly!
If you’re looking for something a bit higher fashion that’ll give you some dreamy-looking eyes, try this eye look out!
You’ll surely be a blue-eyed beauty with this artic blue to brown gradient look. Match it with a simple lippie and you’re good to go!
Shine bright with this neon yellow cut crease look. I like how it’s complemented with this deep plum lower lashline shade. It tones it down a bit.
Here’s another violet-cut crease, but the lid shade is a nice gold shimmer this time. The inner corner is this beautiful blue color. It reminds me of an Egyptian eye look.
I love how structured this eye look is. We’ve got this beautiful Spring look that has some pink, blue, and green jewels on the cut crease and a nice white outline wing outline.
Keep it bright, colorful, and dreamy with this pastel rainbow eyeshadow look. I also love the silver gems on the outside of the shadow.
Is it me, or is it flaming hot in here?
There are days when you wanna keep it more simple. This is the perfect bright look for that. It doesn’t have a lot of deep shading but it’s still very fresh and bright.
I’m obsessed with this pink look. Just look at this nude to mauve ombré lid and the deeper pink transition shade. Top it off with some thick lashes and you’re getting this beautiful pink look!
Here’s another clean love but on a whole other level! This one has a nice barely-there pink shade topped with this beautiful graphic liner.
Butterflies are just so dreamy, and so is this eye look! Just look at how beautiful the blue to purple ombré is. I love how the blue lower lash line extends to a nice pretty wing.
This is one pretty color bomb! I love the glitter inner corner and the duotone lower lash line.
Look at this gorgeous butterfly graphic liner. I love the green, blue, and purple gradient and the lovely gem toppers on the butterfly liner.
Check out this bright gorgeous pastel and neon look. I love how the pastel pink beautifully blends into the neon pink shade.
Some colored liner really brings a look to an entirely new level. We have this gorgeous silver shadow with a pop of blue. These two colors look so elegant together.
Check out this fun rainbow makeup look. This is a fun look to try out, especially if it was done with some light pastel colors!
Now, this is what I’m talking about! We’ve got this fun cloud-shaped crease with some multi-colored pastel gradients around it. It’s such a bright and pretty look to try out!
Here’s a simple purple cut crease with a whole lot of sparkles. I love how the white really makes the purple pop. The pastel glitter inner corner just makes it look so ethereal!
Here’s another purple look! This one’s interesting because the inner and outer corners don’t really meet in the middle. Instead, we have this pretty glitter on the crease that blends upwards.
Here’s another dreamy eye look. I used to think that green and blue together don’t really work, but boy am I wrong!
Just look at this multi-layered cut crease. It really does make your eyes seem a lot fiercer. The pearls on top just look fabulous!
Here’s another look that I really love! Something about messier eyeshadows just reminds me of more high-fashion looks. I love the yellow lower lash line on this look!
This just reminds me of my favorite citrus fruit! I love the gorgeous orange gradient and the simple silver line on the crease.
Ooh la la. Look at this gorgeous eye look that’s formed into an abstract shape. I love that it’s pink inside and blue on the outside.
I love how bright and light blue shadow looks with some white liner. The accent yellow shade also just makes it seem so vibrant!
Here’s another full yellow look that blends into a warm-toned brown. It seems like a pretty easy look to achieve!
Now, this is stunning. Look at how the yellow shadow was applied to the outer parts of the eyes. It still perfectly complements the entire makeup look.
This blue shade is absolutely stunning. Just look at how it makes the gold textured glitter on top pop!
I love how fierce this eye look looks. It’s pretty much a black smokey eye but it’s topped with some vibrant deep green on top.
Sometimes, a whole lot of blue could really do you some good. This is a gorgeous blue smokey eye that would look perfect with a nude lippie.
This pink chrome eye look has got me feeling some type of way! It just looks so lustrous!
This one’s a funky eye look that still feels a bit dreamy. It has some pretty purples with some peach on the lip. The colorway is absolutely perfect.
This eye look is definitely something I’d wear to a formal event like a wedding. It’s beautiful but still pretty classy and simple.
In love with this look and this color scheme! I love how the bold red accents look on top of this bright pink!
This look reminds me of Ariana Grande’s latest galaxy-like makeup collection, especially because of the pretty bright gradient shades!
I hope you’re not tired of colors just yet. A beautiful rainbow ombré design is topped with a pink crease and a blue lower lash line shade.
