With a few shades of Pressed Eyeshadow and Eye Primer, you can create plenty of looks that are equal parts interesting and flattering. These are our go-to summer eye makeup looks, and we recommend them for any and all of your upcoming summer occasions (i.e. music festivals, checking out the new brunch spot, or your fourth wedding of the season):
Your goal: To dabble in bold color
Siren: Yes, we know that fuchsia can be a bold choice as an eyeshadow--but trust us--it’s incredibly flattering, and really brings out the color of your eyes. Apply it in a sheer wash with the Allover Shadow Brush, or build it up with Eye Primer for extra drama with the Contour Shadow Brush.
Cosmic: The gray undertones of this dusty sky blue make your eye color richer, and warmer, and a little flash of color adds some edginess to your look. Cosmic can be super subtle and blended out, or fully embraced with Eye Primer. We love it as a liner on the outer half of our lower lashlines.
Your goal: To try a fresh take on a classic look
Luxe: This golden copper shade is a universally-flattering metallic, and a team favorite. We love it as eyeliner, we love it as a highlight on deep skin with warm undertones, and we love it in just a soft wash over the lids, with a hint of a Bardot-inspired wing at the outer edge.
Myth: It's ideal for those wanting to rock a smoky eye in the summer, and also wanting to wear a fun color. Myth is also a sneaky universal flatterer with its golden-green pigment, building and blending beautifully with additional layers.
Your goal: To find something easy, versatile, and neutral
Isla: Our go-to shade for a less-is-more neutral that brightens and gives a low-key highlight. Isla can go anywhere and everywhere for a little bit of radiance without drawing too much attention to itself. Isla is recommended for keeping in your purse and applying quickly with your fingertips for a glowy touchup. We’ll be wearing it with Lip Tint in Daisy to channel Reese Witherspoon’s look in Big Little Lies all summer.
