If you thought you'd never see the end of shimmery, iridescent, metallic eye shadows, get ready to count your blessings. Sleek, matte shadows are due to reign big this summer, so bust out those simple hues for a look that's totally elegant and grown-up.
"For a look that's full of impact, eschew glitter and shimmer altogether and go for an opaque pastel shade," BellaSugar.com advises. "Be sure to apply liberally, from above the crease to below the lower lash lines, for maximum boldness."
This goes hand in hand with the sidewalk-chalk pastel craze that we've been seeing so much leading into spring. Many of these uber-intense pastel shades rely on their chalky finish to create this sophisticated look.
Of course, for a look that won't lose its impact throughout the day, you'll need a strong, high-performance eye shadow base. Use blinc Eyeshadow Phase One to create a sturdy foundation for whatever eyeshadow masterpiece you dream up. The formula is built to resist all kinds of environmental stresses throughout the day to leave you with smudge and crease-free lids.
