Here's proof you don't need to work a full, traditional eyeshadow look to reap it's beautifying benefits. With a little creativity, color play, and clever placement—specifically in the inner corners of eyes—make it shine for spring in a totally new, utterly versatile way. Here makeup artist Meghan Nguy shows us all the inspiring ways to play with pops of color.
Try an icy pale-blue eyeshadow, like Color Tattoo 24Hr Cream Gel Eyeshadow in Chill Girl, in the inner corners of eyes, edged along the lower lash line to look bright-eyed, fresh-faced and alive.
Line a creamy green-blue color, like Tattoo Studio Sharpenable Gel Pencil Eyeliner in Green Teal, along the lower lash line, swooping up at the outer corners of eyes to create a lifted wing.
Spotlight! Draw a 24 karat gold shimmer eyeshadow right in the inner corners of the eye for a cinematic jolt of shimmer, that adds dimension to the eye. Meghan uses Color Strike Cream to Powder Eyeshadow Pen in Flash.
A neat, shimmery line of silver edged along the center of the lower lash line couldn't be simpler, or look cooler. Recreate this look with Tattoo Studio Sharpenable Gel Pencil Eyeliner in Sparkling Silver.
Use a bold red/maroon hue, like Color Strike Cream to Powder Eyeshadow Pen in Tempt, to dramatically extend the inner corners of the eye out, fading color slightly as you draw color just on the lower lash line.
Plummy purple, like Color Tattoo 24HR Cream Gel Eyeshadow in Knockout, looks super-sultry blended and faded at the outer corners of eyes, both on the upper and lower lash line.
