Though I rarely advocate for subscribing to outdated and often rigid beauty rules, there are still plenty of us (myself included) who associate certain products or colors with one season. For instance, there may be some summer eyeshadow colors that you wouldn’t opt for in the fall. Understandably so, once the weather starts cooling down, there’s just something inexplicably sexy and cool about a smoky eye and full-coverage Bordeaux lipstick. Perhaps you just prefer limiting your options from one season to the next so you can save some time and effort.
Ultimately, how and when you wear your makeup–if you choose to wear it at all–is completely up to you. However, for those who preserve their boldest and brightest eyeshadow for the hot weather, we’re nowhere near the conclusion of another, sadly swift summer. With another month or so of sweltering temps, random beach trips, and a festival or two, there’s no better time than now to take your color game up a notch and swipe on this season’s best-selling shades. From a Drag Race-approved palette to a drugstore dream, here are the multi-color and single shade stunners that deserve some more time in the spotlight.
