When shopping for an eyeshadow palette, we usually look for something with a good mix of shades and textures. Why, you ask? Well, firstly, a good mix ensures that you’re not hoarding up on several different palettes, most of which never see the light of day. And secondly, you can create a multitude of looks using just one product.
But choosing just one eyeshadow palette from the numerous options available online can be quite a task. But don’t worry, we have found the perfect pick for you — Lakme Absolute Spotlight Eye Shadow Palette - Berry Martini. The soft pink and berry shades are perfect for summer and work for all Indian skin types. Plus, the beautiful combination of matte and shimmer shades is super easy to blend and can work for daytime and night. What more could one want?
To give some proof of what we mean, here are five super stunning summery night time eye makeup looks that you can easily recreate using this beautiful eyeshadow palette…

We really think mauve colours and Indian skin tones are a match made in heaven, and this simple and chic eye makeup is all the proof you need. What we love about this look is how simple it is to recreate it. Take the matte mauve colour and pack it on your eyelid, staying as close to the lash line. Next, blend it upwards to create a soft, streak-free gradient, and you’re ready to slay!
03. Lilac halo

Purple and lilac eyeshadows are reigning this season, and this simple everyday eye makeup spotted on Kritika Kamra is just perfect for summer. After applying a matte purple eyeshadow all over your lid, remember to extend a bit of the same colour onto your waterline as well for a more cohesive effect.
BB pro tip: To quickly turn this into a night-time makeup look, simply pack on some of the darker shimmery purples from the same palette onto the centre of your eyelid, and you’re good to go.
04. Golden haze

If you aren’t a fan of wearing pink eyeshadows during the night, here’s a simple shimmery gold eye makeup look you’ll surely love. After applying a bit of primer to even out your eyelid, pack on some of the shimmery golden shade and blend it using a fluffy brush to get rid of any harsh lines. So chic and simple, isn’t it?
05. Shimmery glam
