The worst is over. And by worst, we mean winter. Yes, even though there is still snow on the ground in many parts of the country, the first day of spring lingers near... which means it's time to break out the floral prints, pastel hues, and bright (and fun!) makeup looks. It also means that it's time to shop for your new "it" eyeshadow palette of the season. Consider these top picks your main contenders, from a shimmery Jill Stuart quad to a retro-inspired Maybelline 12-shade palette — and get major eyespiration for your springtime garden parties or movie nights in the park. You name it, there's an eyeshadow (or 14!) that'll take your natural glow out of hibernation mode.

Every makeup lover knows that a contoured face sets the stage for bold, dramatic eyes. This palette comes with 14 neutral shades — a mixture of matte, shimmer, and transitional colors — that are perfect for eyes and cheeks. That way you can complete your spring look, all in one place.
'Tis the season for lighter clothes, lighter skies, and — you guessed it — lighter eyes. Give your eyes a (not so) natural glow with these four shades, including a shimmery pink, a matte beige, a satin peach, and a peachy nude. And yes, they'll really pop when paired with your Easter best.
Let's get this out of the way: Your eyes should sparkle and shine as much as you do. With this 12-shadow palette by Arbonne, they'll do just that. Each velvety shade is inspired by a gemstone, ranging from opal to sapphire. Added bonus: They're made with cucumber extract and sunflower seed oil for easier application.
