Gorgeous Gaze: 40 Eye Shadows for the Perfect Summer Look

Create a stunning stare with these picks from e.l.f., Etude House, and more! By Patricia Dayacap

article_summer-shadows.jpgWhen most women, especially those in a rush, put on makeup, eye shadow is rarely the first thing they'll reach for. Maybe it's the fact that eye shadow is trickier to apply, maybe it's because women would much rather play up their lips—regardless of the reason, eye shadow is usually shunned in favor of statement lippies and glosses. It's a pity, really; after all, the saying "The eyes are the windows to the soul" isn't famous for nothing.

But since it's summer (and people usually have more time on their hands in the summer, what with vacations, holidays, and the generally carefree vibe), may we suggest playing up the eyes instead? During the day, for instance, you can wear your favorite sundress with a shot of bright color on your lids. Come nighttime, once it's time to hit the club with the girls, you can opt for a smoky eye using metallic bronzes and golds.

Browse through the gallery for 40 summery eye shadows from MAC, Wet n Wild, and more.
