Feast your eyes on brights, pastels and nude tones in the new season's prettiest palettes and powders
Sunday 17 March 2013
£7, The Body Shop, thebodyshop.co.uk
Citrus shades of orange and yellow are a big trend for spring. Make the shades work in your make-up bag with this new eyeshadow from The Body Shop. The highly pigmented formula means you can create a vibrant look or something a little more demure.
£38, Dolce and Gabbana, harrods.com
Bouquet is a new cosmetics collection inspired by the vibrancy and colour of Italian summers. With floral shades of light green, aqua blue, violet and blush pink it perfectly encapsulates the mood of spring. The luxurious gold casing makes this an ideal purchase for make-up magpies.
£14, Urban Decay, debenhams.co.uk
Urban Decay is adding to its already extensive range of eye shadows with new shades including this “Heartless” shade. Nothing is nicer for spring than a pretty, glowing make-up look which this rosy pink shade will help you achieve. As with all of the brand's eye shadows, it pops out of its case so you can customise your own palettes.
£46, Givenchy, houseoffraser.co.uk
A beautiful selection of eye colours in taupe, grey and natural beige plus a pearlescent pink for when that extra bit of sparkle is needed. With a handy mirror and applicator brush in a sleek silver case, it will make a luxurious addition to your make-up bag.
£23, Chantecaille, spacenk.com
Creased eyeshadow is never a good look on anyone, but nevertheless it's an all-too-frequent hazard. Chantecaille's lasting eye shade is a new formula which is not only crease resistant but will also not fade or run. Plus you can use it wet or dry.
£7.99, Revlon; available nationwide
With tropical shades of coral, violet, emerald and blue, this eyeshadow quad has something to suit most complexions and is just the thing to get you in the mood for a tropical summer.
£4.99, Maybelline; available nationwide
Maybelline's brand new range of cream eye shadows promise to deliver the vivid colour of ink with the long-lasting effect of a tattoo - although thankfully not as permanent as getting inked.
The high-shine effect of metallics are an ideal evening look. This Topshop palette blends pastel shades of lavender and rose with dazzling gold and silver for a look that is far more versatile and appropriate for the day.
£22.50, Burberry, burberry.com
This neutral shade is aptly named after Burberry's most iconic creation; the trench coat, and is embossed with the house's check too. The colour may be subtle, but the effect is long-lasting.
£62, Tom Ford, houseoffraser.co.uk
Encased in a sleek brown case with lavish gold trim, this admittedly decadent palette features four complementing copper and brown shades, all with finishes ranging from sparkling and shimmery to sheer and matte.
