14 Best Pastel Eyeshadow Looks for Any Occasion in 2024

Spring may still be a few weeks away, but here in the UK, the sky is blue and the sun is shining, giving full-on spring vibes! Every year when spring is in the air, I feel my creative juices waking up! The grey sky and cold temperatures freeze them for a couple of months! I’m sure I’m not alone with that problem;)

This beautiful weather is making me reach for my pastel eyeshadows. After all, brighter days mean brighter makeup! But, pastel eyeshadow looks are not only for the warmer spring and summer days, they’re also ideal for anyone looking to add a pop of color to their makeup, without it looking too bold or dramatic.

I’ve put together some of the prettiest pastel eyeshadow looks. There’s a look for every occasion, be it glamorous or everyday wear!

1. Pastel graphic liner

This gorgeous eyeshadow look has so much going on, I don’t know where to begin! From the matte gradient eyeshadow to the shimmery graphic liner in the opposite direction. It’s all in the little details!

If you’re looking for an original pastel eyeshadow look, this is the one for you! It’s not too difficult to recreate, yet gives you breathtaking results!

Use the ColourPop Matte About Hue Palette to recreate this look.

2. Lilac with shimmer and pearls

If you thought pastel eyeshadows would be boring, as you can see, they are anything but!

This lilac eyeshadow is another showstopper look. It has so much detail from the pink shimmering in the middle to the stunning pastel pearls added to the eyelid!

3. Starry nights pastel eye look

Mesmerising starry night looks are not a new idea. Put an original twist to it and create a pastel nighttime look. The results are stunning and original!

4. Backwards rainbow eyeshadow

Give the classic rainbow eyeshadow a change by applying it in the opposite direction. Use red for the smokey eye effect and a pastel blue for the inner corner.

Blending properly is the key to getting this look right, so blend, blend and blend some more!

5. Coral & pink eyeshadow

For a monotone eyeshadow look, this pastel pink eyeshadow is everything! Use a few shades of pink to get this fabulous look. The magic here is the matching blush that appears to continue from the eyes!

6. Green, yellow and blue gradient look

Bright and fresh is how we’d describe this eye look! To give it that bright effect, use yellow as your main color, use it as a winged eyeliner and for under the lashes.

If you’re feeling extra creative, get matching colored lenses!

7. Be Bejeweled eyeshadow

Don’t limit your eyeshadow creativity to the colors alone. Get some fun jewels to take your eyeshadow game to the next level.

This pastel eye look would work wonderfully for the winter when you want to create a stunning ice queen!

8. Pastel, pastel everywhere

Who said eyeshadow was only for the eyelids? Extend it further down the face for this spectacular look. Let the blue have all the attention and pair it with a pastel subdued orange!

9. Pop art pastel eyes

This eyeshadow look brings strong Any Warhol vibes! Note how the shades aren’t blended properly, giving it its pop art effect. Add a cut-crease for an extra bold look!

10. Yellow and pink

Keep it simple, yet effective with one shade on the eyelids and another under the lower lashes. Finish it with winged eyeliner!

11. Unicorn-inspired eye look

Create this ethereal eyeshadow look using your favorite unicorn shades. Unicorns are synonymous with pastel colors, add a little shimmer and you’re good to go!

Use the ColourPop Aurora Struck Mega Palette to get the beautiful purple shade.

12. Liner drip

The name pastel drip may make this eyeshadow look sound simple, but it’s anything but that! You’ll need a steady hand to recreate this look.

If you’re looking to hone in on your eyeshadow skills, this eyeshadow look is the one for you!

13. Lilac dreams

Purple eyeshadow is one of the most popular pastel colors used for eyeshadows and it’s easy to see why! It’s chic and works with all eye shades!

This show-stopping look may be difficult to recreate, but the results are well worth the effort!

14. Abstract liner

Yellow eyeshadow has a reputation for being a more daring shade to wear on the lids. While we don’t always agree with that, in this case, it’s probably true!

Pair your favorite pastel yellow with a white graphic liner and you’ll have all heads turning! Original and gorgeous is how we define this look!
