Simply put, I’ve yet to find anything I don’t love about Lizzo. The crazy talented singer, rump shaker and flute player (yes, you read that right) has been on my radar for a while, and now the rest of the world is finally catching up with her genius and all around badassery. And though I’ve never seen her actual resume, I would eagerly add “best pastel eyeshadow wearer” to her growing list of skills.

Last month, the “Juice” songstress literally stopped me in my trek from the subway to the office when she shared her Allure cover on Instagram. Lizzo’s magazine covers are always inspiring me to step outside my comfort zone, but this close-up shot of her eyelids adorned in purple pastel eyeshadow and a classic cat eye was next-level. It almost made me feel bad for prancing to work makeup-free.

Truth be told, I’ve always been afraid of wearing such light, prismatic colors because they tend to look more ashy than holographic. Applying frosted shades is a very specific skill I’ve admittedly never taken time to master. However, now that I have a supreme example that they look absolutely stunning on brown skin, I’m ready to stop being lazy and give it a try. What can I say? Lizzo is my makeup fairy godmother. Ahead, a gang of pastel eyeshadow palettes that cover the gamut of finishes and colors for mixing and matching this spring and beyond.
