We don’t know about you, but we’re feeling like getting bold with makeup, and that means dipping into our collection to experiment with our most colorful eyeshadow palettes and eyeliners. From rainbow-hued false eyelashes to neon graphic eyeliner, we’ve rounded up six influencer looks for you to try below. If you’re also looking to add a jolt of color to your everyday makeup routine, look no further for inspiration.

Glitter Gradient

This makeup look by @haodoyoungo is proof that even glittery, colorful eyeshadow can be soft and wearable. You can replicate the look by layering a soft wash of your favorite shimmery eyeshadows on the lid (we love the Urban Decay Naked Cyber Eyeshadow Palette for this) and drawing a line in the crease using the NYX Professional Makeup Epic Smoke Liner.

Flaming Red Liner

You may have a signature red lipstick, but what about a go-to red eyeliner? To make the neon shade pop, make sure to prime your lids with a white base first. The NYX Professional Makeup Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk ensures your color stays as vibrant as it looks in the pan as it does on your skin.

Contrasting Lids

To add more vibrancy to your look, swipe a single bold color across your top lids, then add a streak of a contrasting color along your lower lash lines. An additional pop of color in the inner corner and a sprinkling of rhinestones add an ethereal, fairy-like touch.

Neon Blink

Don’t blink or you’ll miss the flash of electric green liner streaked across @halfagemini’s lids. A wash of pink in the inner corners offers a stunning contrast.

Sunset Punch

For a monochromatic take on colorful liner, pick a shade that you can match with your blush, like this fiery coral or a bright pink. We love the way @glambymykaila tied her look together with a pop of orange in her inner corners.

Sunny-Side Up

Want to know the easiest way to rock colorful eyeshadow? Pick a single bright shadow you love and blend the shade all over the lid and into the crease. Try the NYX Professional Makeup Ultimate Eye Paints — they’re matte, creamy and ultra-pigmented. For a vibrant yellow like @rowisingh, we recommend the shade Coming Out Fierce.

Bubblegum Beat

This hot pink eyeshadow look is made even more fun with multicolored gemstones glued on top. If you’re hesitant about wearing colorful eyeshadow, look for a shade with depth, like this rich berry pink, rather than a neon. Neutral liner softens the look as well. We love the Maybelline New York TattooStudio Sharpenable Gel Pencil in Polished White.
