Eye shadow colors for 2014 are all about innovation, rich colors, and luscious textures. The new year should serve as a reminder to clean out your old makeup and replenish your collection with some of the new styles and colors. Here are 7 of the best eye shadow colors for 2014.
Chanel’s innovative Illusion D’Ombre collection in Diapason is one of the best eye shadow colors for 2014. Diapason is a shimmering plum with hints of brown that has a soft and gel-like texture. Chanel has formulated this eye shadow to be truly innovative. The cushion-like consistency means this eye shadow can double as eyeliner. Every Illusion D’Ombre purchased includes specifically designed brushes for this one-of-a-kind formula. To purchase Diapason and other colors in the collection, visit chanel.com. These shadows cost $36 each.
NARS has a reputation for creating eye shadows that glide on smoothly, blend effortlessly, and that are highly pigmented. China Seas is the latest creation from NARS. In the duo, there is a turquoise color with a gold infusion and an iridescent plum. Wear these shades together for a fashion forward beauty look or separately for a bold statement. To get this eye shadow duo, visit narscosmetics.com to get China Seas for $34.
One trend for 2014 is white, ethereal eye shadow. Stagelight eye shadow by Marc Jacobs can help you achieve this runway trend. This shimmery, sparkling eye shadow glides on velvety for a shiny finish. You can wear this shadow alone for a whimsical look, or pair it with other shadows for a sparkling finish. You can get Stagelight for $32 exclusively at sephora.com.
Blue eye shadow was all over the runway for designers like Marc Jacobs. Because of this, I’m predicting it will be one of the hottest eye shadow colors of 2014. If you are looking to recreate this look, give Afterparty by Sugarpill Cosmetics a try! This will give you the perfect shade of runway blue. If you are wanting to try this daring color, visit sugarpillshop.com to purchase Afterparty for $12.
These eye shadows by Dior are some of the most luxurious eye shadows I have ever used. To the touch, they feel like cream. Once smoothed onto the eyelid however, the texture fades into a velvety smoothness. Each of the shadows is designed to reflect light and shadows for a multidimensional appearance. For 2014, I suggest this eye shadow in Céleste – a gorgeous light lavender shade. The metallic finish will make your eyes pop! You can pick up Céleste for $30 on dior.com.
Shimmery browns were another runway staple for 2014. Since light browns never go out of style, it’s good to have at least one on hand in your makeup bag. For 2014, Urban Decay’s Space Cowboy is a great option since it has silvery glitter mixed in. It’s just enough shine to draw attention to your eyes but not enough to look chunky and over-the-top. Urban Decay knows that the biggest concern of glittery eye shadows is fall-out, so they formulated all their Moondust shadows to stay on your lids and off your cheeks! You can get yours at urbandecay.com for $20.
Bright red eye shadow was a trend we first saw in 2013 and I think it will stick around throughout 2014. If you are wanting to try this bold look, then give Make Up For Ever’s bright red pigments a try. What’s nice about the pigments is that they have many uses. You can swipe them on yours eyes for a daring shadow, mix it with gloss for a unique lip color, or use a wet angled brush to create a dramatic eye liner. To get this wonder-product, go to sephora.com to shop pigments for $20.
You will be sure to turn some heads in 2014 with these eye shadow colors. This year is all about trying new colors and styles! Will you be picking up any of these eye shadows this year? What colors do you recommend for 2014? We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
