A fun eyeshadow look is hard to resist. 2019 beauty trends have included stained lips, powder nails, and yoga skin. We’ve got three types of eyeshadows to check out that can help you stay on-trend this year.

Beauty Trend: Glitters, Shimmers, and Pastel Eyeshadow

Glitter and shimmer eyeshadows can seem a bit confusing when you’re trying to find an eyeshadow palette to buy so you can make a ton of new eyeshadow looks. Shimmery eyeshadow has glitter in it but has a more metallic shine. Glitter eyeshadows have chunks of glitter in them. Pastels are pretty and can be layered all over the eye or look great alone. And if you’re lucky, you may find some of these types of glitters together in a palette!

1. Glitter shadow: When you want all the shine, glitter shadows are a must for a decent eyeshadow palette. Glittery green or purple are great for a look at night. They’re lighter than a shimmer but still help your eye pop. Be sure to look into a glitter glue or to use water so this glitter will have less fallout during application.

2. Shimmer shadow: These shadows have a metallic cast with finer glitter inside, like a bright gold or shiny brown. They work well all over the lid or on the outer corner of your eye to help define its shape. Shimmers do fallout, but they aren’t as bad as glitters.

3. Pastel shadow: Pastels are awesome. They can be shimmery, glittery, or matte. They work well in the corner of the eye, the middle of the eye, or all over. Light pinks, purples, and blues help your eyes stand out, depending on the color of your iris.
