Pastel Eyeshadow You Can Even Wear to Work

The grown-up way to wear watercolor -- we promise you won't look like an Easter egg

Nothing brings me to my childhood happy place quite like the fresh colors of spring. Pastel blues that remind me of eating flossy cotton candy in amusement park lines, or light pinks and greens that take me right back to the first sunny beach days of the season -- strolling the boardwalk with a dripping ice cream cone of strawberry and mint chocolate chip. Now, I'm itching to add these colors to my beauty routine -- embracing the pastel eyeshadow trend.

The look is ultra feminine without being too much -- it's just a playful hint of color. In fact, it's so subtle, you can wear it to work … or on a date. So go ahead, be a kid again.

Golden Eye
Subtle gold shimmer shadow -- like Kristen Bell's at the LA premiere of "Veronica Mars" -- is cropping up all over the red carpet. Wear it with a flick of black eyeliner to make the pastel shade stand out.

Neutrogena Crease Proof Eye Shadow in Stay Golden lets you recreate the look with the swipe of a stick, while Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color in BE 217 Yuba comes in a tiny pot that's creamy enough to blend with fingers. Or you can create your own perfect shade of gold with Lorac Starry-Eyed Baked Eyeshadow Trio in Superstar.

White Out
White shadow like Dianna Agron's makes even the most sleep-deprived eyes appear well rested. And it looks especially pretty with bronzed skin.

Single shades like Essence Eyeshadow in Vanilla Milkshake and Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Shadow Paint in Toasted Marshmallow are a quick way to add glamour. Or choose from a variety of frosty whites and metallic greys with Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in Gris-Gris.
