view gallery VIEW GALLERY

Feast your eyes on brights, pastels and nude tones in the new season's prettiest palettes and powders

1. Colour Crush EyeShadow in Be My Clementine

£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.

2. Smooth Eye Colour Quad in Bouquet

£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.

3. Eyeshadow in Heartless

£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.

4. Le Prisme Yeux Quatuor Ecrin Prive

£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.

5. Lasting Eye Shade in Lapis

£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.

6. Colour Stay 16Hr EyeShadow in Sea Mist

£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.

7. Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Shadow in Turquoise Forever

£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.

8. Eye Palette in Game On

£12.50, topshop.co.uk

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.

9. Sheer EyeShadow in Trench

£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.

10. Eyeshadow Quad in Golden Mink

£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.
