And this iteration is perfect to get the best of both worlds by covering your lids in the pretty colour combination and then tracing a sparkly eyeliner on the inner corner of the eyes starting from your tear ducts.

Yellow is such a pretty, summery shade but it can be difficult to wear. That’s when this two-toned eyeshadow trend comes into play. Whether the yellow shade is too sheer or too bright, the other contrasting hue you’re using will help you balance it out. Keep this look as an inspiration and get ready to make a head-turning statement.

Embracing colour blocking can feel intimidating, but this look proves you don’t actually need to fear it. Apply your favourite bright colour across one lid and another pretty shade on the second eyelid. Don’t forget to add a contrasting shade on the lower lash line to bring the look together. We bet you’ll be obsessed with this look.

Crystals FTW!

The dainty crystals are a fun way to get creative and take your beauty game up a notch. They’re also super wearable, so you won’t feel like you’re playing dress-up. To DIY, prep your lids with your favourite colour combo and then use tweezers to carefully place shimmery stars or crystals from the inner to outer corners of your lower lash line.

Pick your go-to shadow combo and get to work ladies!
