Happy Spring everyone! It’s definitely time for gorgeous pastel looks for Easter, weddings, or even just a grocery run. Instead of looking for more palettes to purchase, I decided to show you some of my tried-and-true palettes that can give you soft spring looks.
Makeup Revolution The Emily Edit: The Wants
This one almost isn’t fair to put on this list, it can be used for basically anything. However, some of the colors that stand out to me as springy are Grateful, Prayer, Cupcake, Eve Rose, and Laughcry. For some depth, add Love Tons, Dues Paid, Side Hustle, or Pizzaz!
These shadows are very buildable and easy to work with, and is great for someone who wants to experiment with color in a comfortable manner. It’s a $20 palette at Ulta!
Urban Decay Born to Run
Like the previous palette, the Born to Run is a multi-tasking palette that can go in any number of directions. Baja, Wildheart, Still Shot, Blaze and Big Sky are easy picks for spring, but the blue shades could be a gorgeous springy pop on a neutral look. Still Shot is actually a little bit brighter of a peach in person than in this picture.
Like all Urban Decay shadows, these are extremely buttery, pigmented, and easy to work with. This palette is $49 at Ulta and Sephora.
Makeup Revolution Precious Stone Emerald
At first glance, I wasn’t thinking spring when I saw this. But the three shades on the bottom right (Gem, Heaven, and Majestic) plus Primitive, Indigo, and Astral would make some beautiful green looks for springtime. Basically, if you’re looking to have some gorgeous green pops, this is your palette.
This palette isn’t quite as easy to work with as the other Makeup Revolution palette, but it’s still pigmented and gorgeous. The mattes will blend out well, the shimmers just need your finger rather than a brush. This is a $10.50 palette, but the only places I’ve found it recently are the Makeup Revolution Website and Beautybay.
Colourpop Truly, Madly, Deeply
If I was forced to choose a favorite drugstore palette it would probably be this one. The Truly Madly Deeply palette is a purply/pinky palette with some unique formulas including pressed glitter and matte with glitter (not shimmer). A soft pink glam look would be extremely easy from this palette.
This is my first Colourpop palette but I’m definitely sold on their shadows! The mattes blend like a dream, the shimmers catch the light beautifully, and the pressed glitter is NOT super messy. This palette is $23 at Ulta.
Urban Decay Naked Cherry
In some ways this is very similar to the Colourpop palette. However, this one is completely pink, no purple/mauvy shades involved (except maybe Feelz, it seems fairly mauvy). Pinky-nude eye looks are the name of the game here, though you can definitely go more intense. As a bonus, the brush in this palette is actually really excellent. This palette is also $49 at Ulta and Sephora.
