Hot or Not: Seriously Bright Shadow for Spring
Here’s a bright idea… Start getting in the spirit of spring by opting for a bold new take on eyeshadow. We’re talking amped-up color statements, from thick, near-neon streaks of eyeliner to blended above and below the eye in all your old favorite crayon box colors! What do you think about making a color statement…
Will you opt for bright eyes this season or will you pass? Vote below!
RED ALL OVER>> Warm shades ranging from peachy reds to oh-so-hot coral pinks are the perfect complement to warm, golden skin tones. (Determine your skin tone by turning over your arm and looking at the color of your veins. If they appear green-ish, you’ve got a warm tone, but if they look more blue, you’re cool.)

TRUE BLUE>> Cool eyeshadows pair best with, you guessed it, cool skin tones. (Think olive colored, rosy brown or fair/medium with a rosy undertone.) Try an all-over blue blend, or a swipe of deep purple on both the eyelid and underneath the eye. Another favorite? Jade or green…which is especially festive for this week’s St. Patrick’s Day holiday!
