In my teenage years, I had no problem experimenting with super bright colors. I hoarded MAC pigments and Urban Decay eyeshadows in shades like lime green, red, yellow and iridescent purple. Over the years, I've toned my look down to beiges, coppers and the occasional cool green and am now a little intimidated by bolder hues.
It probably has something to do with the myriad glossies saying flashy piments age a woman. Lately, though -- especially with all the bright neons, pastels and flashy prints that are so hot this spring/summer -- I've thrown all hesitation to the wind and opted for bolder, brighter peepers.
The all-vegan palette features five seriously daring colors: Fly Dragon Fly (matte fiery red), Parasol (matte sky blue), Goldfish (metallic gold), Jade-o-Lade (matte jade), and Lotus Noir (matte black).
Obviously you need to find the right occasion to wear such colors, especially if you're a professional woman. I think these shades, and other bright eyeshadows, are best for night time escapades and funky events. Think First Friday art shows when you want to show off your quirky side or an evening of cocktails with the ladies that lasts well into the early hours of the following day.
So, what's your take? Yay or nay to these bold eyeshadow colors? Check out the hues below and see if any entice you.
