Summer is here and although it isn't criminal to opt for a smokey eye look, I personally like to use lighter and well - more summery colours on my eyes. Glitter, shine and sparkle were all seen on the summer catwalks and I couldn't love it more. 

Here are my favourite eye shadow palettes to create that soft, summery look. 

This eyeshadow palette by sleek is really affordable, the colours are super pigmented and they have a slight sparkle to them. There's a range of light to dark colours - perfect for day to night.

This NYX palette gives you a strong range of colours, a lot of soft mauve colours which are a big trend at the moment. Not only that, this palette has a selection of glossy lips to choose from. 

This L'Oreal case even looks summery. This palette opts for bright neon colours rather than soft. If you're looking for an eye shadow palette that creates a big impact, maybe for festivals or holidays then this is it. 

Yet another NYX palette. I have to admit that the design of this does attract me more than it should. But I also love how there is a mixture of really matte colours and shimmery colours. This would be great for blending, cut creases and simple eye shadow looks.
