Your Instagram feed is probably a lot like ours. Makeup? Summery Dresses? Coffee? Memes? Yeah, thought so. While outdoor excursions may be nowhere on the cards RN, coming across beauty looks and hitting the “save” button to try on later is something we all do. Long days and soaring temperatures strike us with a special kind of makeup inspiration. Now that our Instagram saved folder is full to the brim with beautiful makeup looks that we’re itching to recreate- we find ourselves collecting super bright, and poppy eyeshadow palettes that are perf for the summer so that we’re on-trend this season too.
So without further ado, let’s check out these 7 eyeshadow palettes that we are hoarding for summer.
If you have travel plans for the summer and only have room for one palette in your carry-on, this one is tiny enough to fit in your pocket. It’s dual-sided and has 24 warm-toned shades that go well with Indian skin complexions. It even has a mirror for on-the-go application. But the most exciting part is that the shadows are so pigmented that they can brighten up even the cloudiest of days.
Most drugstore palettes struggle to nail the neutral eyeshadow palette, but not Maybelline. Smooth, creamy shades (zero chalkiness in sight) that are just as highly pigmented as the ones on luxe pallets. And the best part is that all colours are wearable. For days when you wanna feel a bit extra, this eyeshadow palette even has a few poppy shades.
I see you, Huda. These palettes are smaller, more compact versions of the striking and highly pigmented palettes we know and love from the brand. Each one has nine different colors and varies in finishes. While there are six versions of this palette in total, we have to give the MVP award to the coral one as it creates the best sunset eye looks. Our favourite part though? The stunning packaging – this may well be the prettiest palette we’ve ever drooled over.
If you are not a fan of bright hues and detest the sight of rainbow or sunset eyes. Gravitating towards earthy shades doesn’t make you boring at all. This 12-pan eyeshadow palette features a beautiful curation of neutrals and pastels perfect for all the minimalists out there. Each shade is infused with buttery creams, which gives it a subtle scent and silky texture. We think the name of the palette says it all: Big Beautiful Eyes.
There may only be six shades in this palette, but make no mistake about it—the six are next-level versatile. They’re flattering on an array of eye colors and skin tones, and really do get the job done to create plenty of different looks, even though they all are fairly neutral. We reach for it time and time again, for both every day and special occasion wear, and have even hit the pan a few times which makeup hoarders know is a rarity.
There’s arguably no palette out there with more of a cult following than this Lakme one. For fans of any and every breezy shade, this iteration is a go-to palette and it’s perfect for creating an out-out look. If you want to smoke things up then this is a one-stop-shop with all shades looking fire on all skin tones. It has a dozen colors, ranging from pale peach to deep terracotta, with a mix of matte, shimmer, and metallic finishes. Each shadow is blendable and blendable and touts a unique pigment infusion system to ensure the color is vibrant and long-lasting.
