Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka Chopra is serving serious mermaid eyes with her shimmery, two-tone eyeshadow. You're going to need a metallic purple and a metallic blue to pull this look off, both of which happen to be included in the compact (and affordable!) Maybelline The City Mini Palette in Graffiti Pops, $4.99.

Remember that time Zendaya cosplayed as a monarch butterfly on the red carpet? She topped the look off with a gorgeous matte yellow shadow. The ColourPop Yes, Please! Pressed Powder Eyeshadow Palette, $16, comes armed with the bright marigold shadow you need to pull this look off, as well as neutrals that you can use to blend and shade it into perfection

Millie Bobby Brown

Millie Bobby Brown has been killing her makeup game lately and this graphic, shimmery neon eye look is no exception. You'll need a creamy shadow with major metallic shine and equally major color payoff if you want to give this look a try yourself — we recommend ColourPop Super Shock Shadow in Coconut, $5.
