Beauty will always remain a transformative art, and for spring, makeup artists pushed the limits by ushering in lilac-lined eyes, disco-inspired glittery lids, and abstract washes of neon shadow. Whether you’re a certified pro or in need of a makeup refresher, the season’s latest deliverance of swoon-worthy eye shades are too good to pass up. With that in mind, take your next beauty cue from four stellar looks that are completely worthy of embracing.


The Look: Blue made a valiant return this season in every shape and form. From an '80s-inspired bold smoky eye to lids painted with a pale shade, blue is the hue to experiment with now. Nail this cool girl look by painting on a creamy blue shadow all over the lid, or go all out and blend a medley of rich blues for a fresh take on spring makeup.


The Look: Gleaming glitter with a high-octane dose of disco edge is back in a big way. Encapsulate this bold beauty trend by smudging multi-colored glitter all the way up to the crease of your eye, or go grunge by applying speckled glitter along the outer corner of the eye and lower lashline.


The Look: No other hue screams spring quite like lilac. Create the season's striking look by softly diffusing color with a fluffy brush and blending eyeshadow up to the crease. If you're fully committed to embracing this saccharine hue, smudge eyeshadow up to the brow bone and subtly line eyes with the same shade for a bright pop of color.


The Look: Take your makeup routine to the next level with a jolt of neon-hued eyeshadow and liner. Recreate the look by generously swiping on a vibrant green liner and smudging the shade all along the crease. For an avant-garde approach to the trend, take a rounded brush and apply a neon yellow shadow all over the lid and up to the brow bone for a punch of instant color.
