Spring Styling: Eyeshadow Trends

eyeshadow trends 2018 glasses wearers

Eyeshadow and eyewear; one of the most underrated combos in fashion beauty.

In this article, we delve into a world where cosmetics inspired by the catwalks meet designer specs and sunglasses.

Here are five awesome eyeshadow trends that will help you raise your glasses game in SS18!


1. Pantone Pastels

This season’s hottest makeup look is Pantone inspired eyeshadow – colours that are plucked straight from the trend palette for fabrics and fashion accessories (such as handbags and shoes).

Forget buying pastels for your wardrobe and focus your attention on pastel shadows instead.

As seen on the Missoni SS18 runway, bold lilacs and pretty aquatic hues are the ultimate statement.

Finish your look with these gorgeous Miu Miu MU 50QS pastel toned sunglasses with a gradient tint to let your eye makeup pop.

2. Golden Eyes

You simply can’t go wrong with golden hues when it comes to beauty. Gold toned makeup such as powders can really help to add warmth to your face and give your look a summery finish.

Rihanna recently launched her golden highlighter, so don’t hold back on the shimmer!

Go ahead and add a healthy glow to your skin, and let your eye makeup colour shine with a simple pair of specs.

We think these Ray-Ban RX6489 prescription frames, available in gold or light brown, are the perfect choice!

3. Undereye Colouring

A touch of colour under the eye is this season’s hottest eyeshadow look to try, and it can be achieved using powder colour or coloured eyeliners.

The NARS Larger Than Life Long Wear Eyeliner comes in some super cool colours, including ‘Khao San Road’ (a shocking mint green) or ‘Abbey Road’ (a bold metallic teal).

This retro makeup style should be teamed with retro style glasses, like these Versace VE1244 frames featuring a crystal finish rim.

This season it’s totally acceptable to be over-enthusiastic with your eyeliner, because black is back – and it’s returning with a vengeance.

Some of the eyeliner trends include smudged and smokey liner, ‘negative space eyeliner’ (seen on Gigi Hadid and Emma Watson) and thick ‘thumb print’ eyeliner.

This bold eyeliner style will look like you’ve just dabbed a thumb print of black shadow onto your lid.

It may sound a little mad at first, but get it right and you’ll look like you’ve just walked straight off the runway!

A great look for thick rimmed geek chic glasses, like the Prada PR 26SV designer specs.

5. Sweep of Green

A quick sweep of green eyeshadow (don’t even think about blending) is the way to go if you want to create a bold SS18 makeup look.

Pastel hues are of course in and so are minty brights, but there’s also a sophisticated emerald green as seen on the Marni campaign.

Go green from head to toe with these stylish MAX&Co. 326/S sunglasses, featuring a futuristic tint frame front to let your eyes do the talking.
