Ten Pastel Palettes to Help you SPRING into Season
Spring is here and there's no better way to celebrate than by investing in yourself! This season is full of new beginnings, growth, and of course, eye-catching hues. Kickoff your spring season by being energized and confident with these ten Spring-inspired palettes.
1. Milani Gilded Pastel Palette
Featured shades: Pastel peaches and purples
The Milani Gilded Pastel palette pushes the bounds of pastel by using an ultra-pigmented formula. With ten matte shades and five shimmer shades, this palette has just the combination to create a gorgeously gilded look. The subtle tones in alliance with hints of glitter make it perfectly playful for Spring.
How to use: Place a neutral tone all over the lid. Then grab a mid-tone and blend into the crease. Finally, pick up a complimenting shimmer shade on a shadow brush or your ring finger. Apply to the center of the lid and under the brow bone.
***Pro Tip: To get a more vibrant shimmer shade, spray your brush with setting spray before dipping into your shade. This will grab more of the pigment, making it show up much brighter.
2. Fenty Killawatt Foil Freestyle Palette
Featured shades: Holographic purple and peach
This stunning palette by Fenty is actually a highlighter palette! However, when designing it, Rihanna named it the freestyle palette for a reason. All of these shades can be used as a highlighter, eyeshadow, and even blush! You will be absolutely glowing to the sun gods with Fenty’s Killawatt Foil Freestyle Palette.
How to use: For eyeshadow, blend over top of a matte shade for a pop of pastel color. Tone down the look by using it alone on a fluffy blending brush. For blush or highlight, sweep across the cheekbones, layering shades to create a magical pastel glow.
3. Ciaté London Jessica Rabbit Eyeshadow Palette
Featured shades: Orange and gold
At number three on our list is Ciate London’s Jessica Rabbit Palette. With shade names like “Carrot Cake”, “Honey Bunny”, and “Oh, Rodger!”, how could we resist? I’m feeling all the Spring (and Easter) vibes from this palette.
How to use: Experiment with different color combinations to find a look you love. Apply darker shades to the outside and lighter shades towards the inside.

4. Lime Crime Venus Immortalis Pressed Powder Palette

Spring is neverending, just like the possibilities of the Venus Immortalis Palette. Dip into three matte shades, two shimmers, two foil, and one cream shade. Lime Crime’s foil pigments are lustrous pressed powders that look and shine just like glitter. Add intensity to any look with classic white and black pigments- two colors that will never die. It doesn't stop there. When held by a light for a few seconds and then shutting off the lights, this palette glows in the dark!
