Bright Eyes — 6 Perfect Summer Eyeshadow Looks

Six super-chic eyeshadow trends, scooped straight from the Spring 2011 runways. Summer beauty is all about a carefree, playful mood, so why not experiment a bit? From golden shimmers to super-saturated blues, here are our favorite shadow looks to try.

Green Gleam

 Super-saturated, shimmery green tones were all the rage at the Jason Wu Spring 2011 show. Models sported two-tone washes — colorblock for the eyes, if you will. Use a lighter shade in the inside corner to make eyes appear extra-wide.

Electric Avenue

A fresh take on classic blue, spotted backstage at Rochas Spring 2011. This vivid hue looks especially charming with a tan — sweep bronzer across cheeks to accentuate cheekbones and balance the intensity of the shadow.

  1. i don’t think you have the right name for the middle eyeshadow on the green gleam picture. (Lancome Color Design Sensational Effects Eye Shadow in Montage) because it comes up with a totally different eyeshadow but in the same box. im desperate to find it.
