A Splash of Summer Colour for Your Festival Glam

Anyone else flicking through the calendar and counting down the days until summer officially arrives? The neon-coloured days are just around the corner and we’re gearing up for the sunshine with brightly pigmented shadows from our Cult beloved beauty faves. Paint the grassy fields with festival-friendly {shimmers} and shades that are sure to steal the limelight.

Wave your {highlighters} in the air and wave ‘em like you just don’t care this season as you invite a splash of summer colour into your make up bags. Think: bold, look-at-me pinks, blues and greens in all shades and finishes. What says s-s-summer more than Makeup By Mario’s {Master Metallics Eyeshadow Palette}? Glazing your lids — cheekbones and décolletage, too, if you dare — with the most intense payoff that’s designed to elevate your glam, sparkle your way into this new season. From deep bronze to gleaming teal, dive brush-first into 12 luminous, ultra-creamy shades that effortlessly deliver mesmer-eyes-ing shine. Play with contrasting {metallics} for an oh-so-dreamy look whilst you dance and create summer memories you’ll never forget.

Let sparks fly using Huda Beauty’s {Color Block Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette} and create electrifying looks with aquamarine blues and neon greens using this nine-pan palette. Stand out in a field full of people (literally) with eyes that call for attention. Blending out like a dream using either your finger or a brush, this pocket-sized package filled with sun-kissed shadows and mellow-yellow hues, pack this make up must-have into your tote bag for an on-the-glow glam. We love summer because more is always more and with this new beauty obsession, going the extra mile has never been easier. Simply dip your angled brush into any shadow and create the winged liner of your dreams! 

Perhaps the grass is greener on the other side after all. Revealing 12 beautifully blendable ever-green shades ranging from deep emerald shimmers to powdered pastel pigments, Urban Decay’s {Wild Greens Palette} is definitely a solid contender in our summer shadows line-up. There’s something to be said about the captivating power of a smouldering smize glimmering with goldish-green reflects. Let your inner woodland fairy free and bat your eyelids bashfully at your crush… of the day.
