9 Colorful Eyeshadow Looks That Makeup Artists Absolutely Love

Thomas is all about wearing a bold color on the eye with a sculpted crease, matte eyeliner, and vibrant lid — and it’s customizable, so you can choose how you rock it.

To get the look, Thomas says to start with an eyeshadow primer that’ll help your colors stay in place and help with blending. Next, opt for an eyeshadow shade just a few tones darker than your skin and blend it into your crease. Then, choose an accent color for your lid and apply it all over, blending it up into your crease shade (Thomas uses a lavender shadow for this). She notes that brown eyes look bright wearing purple, blue, and green, and blue and green eyes look good in purple, warm neutrals, and peach.

Once done, opt for a slightly deeper shade than the one on your lid and use it to deepen your outer corner and crease. Palettes like Fenty Beaty’s Snap Shadows work well as they feature shades in the same color family. Finish up with a pair of false lashes or loads of mascara. You can also use a black liner on the lash line or go bold with a colorful mascara that matches your eyeshadow.
