Eyeing Up Spring

With a new season immediately around the corner, it's not only time to pay attention to your apparel wardrobe but your makeup wardrobe as well. Since I've been paying plenty of attention to fleshing out my collection of lip goodies, I'm deciding to focus on adding to my collection of eye goodies and developing my bright color application skills.

Bright eyeshadow can be tricky, so if you're a newbie turning to brights on your eyes, I recommend using one intense color at a time and using it as an accent (at the outer end of your lid, along the lashline, or in the crease) blended in with a predominately neutral eye (shades of gray or brown make brights way easier to pull off).

Here are my must-have eye makeup additions for spring. Inglot, Nars, and Illamasqua are cruelty-free; I've received conflicting information about Sephora + Pantone Universe since (to my knowledge) Sephora is selling in China.
