Combinations of peach, violet and gold with a splash of nature-inspired forest green are the shades to wear on your lids this summer. As far as the application goes, once you wet a shadow it doubles as a graphic liner or used dry it can create a soft smokey eye look in seconds. The latest nature-inspired pretty shades suit any skin tone and age. Here are the colours we are coveting this season.
