Spring into spring with new eyeshadow palettes

A blast from the past(el), Spring calls for new shades of shadow and none fit the bill quite like Huda’s collections of soft, sorbet shades – a.k.a. the {Pastel Obsessions} your wardrobe’s been longing for…

With three swathes of speckled egg colours to choose from with suede-effect mattes and light-scattering shimmers, these ‘90s-inspired creations would look right at home in Cher Horowitz’ backpack or gracing the eyelids of Julia Stiles circa 10 Things I Hate About You (swoon). The most coveted lust-haves since feather-topped pens and cute Tammy Girl cardis, the {Pastels Obsessions} are ready to headline your spring make up menu.

Each with a spectrum of nine muted hues, these buttery powders are packed with the prettiest pigment to lend eyes a painterly wash of soft, sun-dappled shadow. With a trio to um-and-ah over, we’re here to help with the difficult process of finding ‘the one’ (though we advocate adding all three to your wishlist…)

A petal-toned edit of soft pink and primrose, {Rose Obsessions} will elevate every eye colour. Sweet but not saccharine, a ‘pop’ of pale lemon adds edge to a smudge of rose, mauve or flamingo.

Giving us chills with its über cool hues, make like a mermaid with the {Mint Obsessions} Palette – a wardrobe of chic seafoam green, aqua blue and mouth-watering mint-chocolate swirl (the smooth marbled shimmer looks lickable).

The shades of the season, {Lilac Obsessions} pairs lavender and coral which look stunning together and bring hazy, expressionist vibes to your eyelids. Essential for those with dark brown or hazel eyes, this pocket-sized palette is utterly stunning.

Ready to upgrade your post-winter facescape? There’s no time to lose…
