Best bright eyeshadow palettes for Pride Month: Huda Beauty, BH Cosmetics, Anastasia Beverly Hills and more
While we certainly are advocates for tried-and-tested classics, makeup-wise — e.g. neutral shadows and a red lippie — the urge to step out of our comfort zone proves particularly tempting as of late. Running rampant on our Instagram feeds: bold liner flicks, ridiculously edgy bleached brows, and most notably, an influx of neon bright hues donning eyelids. Seen on the likes of Priyanka Chopra and bad gal RiRi, the industry has responded in kind with brighter-than-ever eyeshadow palettes that are sure to turn heads. Below, the best of the lot should you be thinking of leaping upon the bandwagon. We know we are.
Huda Beauty Neon Obsessions Palette
The Internet was all aflutter when Huda Beauty dropped — not one, but three — neon eyeshadow palettes just a few weeks back. Available in Green, Pink, and Orange, each palette bears nine hues, six of which comes in a matte finish and three in creamy metallic. The pigment-packed shades glide onto skin whether with a brush or fingers, though it is recommended that you use a primer as a base should you really want those hues to pop.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Alyssa Edwards Palette
A collaborative effort with RuPaul's Drag Race fan-favourite, Alyssa Edwards, this limited-edition palette comes in a spectrum of daring neon hues with just a hint of nudes that allows for optimal mixing and matching. Its unique, full-pigment formula also makes it easier to blend than most, making it ideal for both professionals and beginners alike.
Juvia's Place The Zulu Palette
With stellar ratings across multiple beauty sites, you know Juvia's Place Zulu Palette is not here to play. Picture six highly pigmented neon hues such as tangerine orange and metallic lime green that stay on for hours on end, three of which come with a matte finish and three in metallic. Another added bonus: it won't break the bank, though it is limited edition, ergo snap it up quick if it catches your fancy.
BH Cosmetics Take Me To Brazil Palette
This wild palette delivers just about every bold, neon hue imaginable. With a whopping 35 shade range, you'll be spoilt for choice between highly saturated offerings of hot pinks, electric blues, and fluorescent yellows. Three nudes accompany them as base shade options, so you're pretty much covered on all fronts.
3CE Stranger Lights Limited Edition Palette
Dropping 10 June, not much has been said about 3CE's new neon range quite yet though it has already amassed a significant amount of buzz for the sheer variety of products available. We spy two eyeshadow palettes in pink and yellow casings, and considering 3CE's stellar reputation of highly pigmented, one-of-a-kind shadows, we're probably in for a treat. Watch this space for updates.
