Shopping Guide: Our Favorite Eye Makeup For A Gorgeous Spring Look

Spring eye makeup on the Donna Karan runway - Spring 2013 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

Startling pink Spring eye makeup on the Donna Karan runway

It’s Springtime! That means big changes to makeup routines: gone is the matte skin, the moody ’90s lip colors, the heavy mascara, the cat’s eyes. Instead, skin gets dewier, cheeks get highlighted, liner is going from black to electric blue and moss green and lips are getting real, real bold.

This is our third Spring beauty feature for May–the first (on face) is here, the second (on lips) is here. This week, we’re focusing on a surprisingly statement-ready category: the eyes.

Usually the Spring runways are all bold lips and pristine faces; while that will certainly be true IRL, there are a lot of eye-focused runway looks you can also replicate at home. Maybe the pink on pink craziness up there at Donna Karan is too much for you, but incorporating Spring’s big colors–blue, green, yellow, and pink–is easier than you think.

We have been testing LOTS of eye makeup these past few weeks and ahead you’ll find some of our favorites from Hourglass, NARS, tarte, MAC, Make, Shu Uemura, Urban Decay, Make Up For Ever, Tom Ford and more…

      Oh my god that Fresh Water blue. I’ve always been an Electric Eel person but that is so pretty.
