We’re only a few months into 2020 and we already have our favorites when it comes to eye makeup. That’s why we rounded up the best eyeshadows of 2020—so far, that is. All we want right now is soft, blendable, buildable color in neutrals and brights. Something about warm weather makes us want to experiment with color and new formulas like shimmers and foils. Don’t’ worry—it’s all here and at every price point.

This past award season proved bright eyeshadow, especially pink, is hotter than ever. Celebrities walked the red carpet with rosy eyes both bold and dramatic and a subtle wash of color. These eyeshadows, in singles and palettes, can help you achieve the trendy look. And if pink isn’t your thing, give another pastel a shot. We’re loving mint green and lavender just as much, as well as sky blue and, surprisingly, yellow.

You don’t have to spend a million dollars to get the look. Stellar eyeshadow comes in all price points now. If you’re feeling luxe, Chanel will have you dripping in dramatic color. And if you’re looking for everyday neutrals and laid-back hues, E.L.F. and Lorac have got you covered. More of a trendy eyeshadow-lover? Give Huda Beauty or Marc Jacobs Beauty a try.
