The Most Scintillating Vivid Eyeshadow Look Ideas Inspired By Jewel Toned Gemstones

Holiday season is in full swing and our favorite looks are definitely a jewel toned color palette and glitter just makes everything more festive! Deep, rich hues inspired by posh gemstones allow designers to create new stunning collections, especially around this time of the year. In fact, the Pantone Fall 2018 Trend Report has a gorgeous jewel toned palette that we couldn't love more! We've rounded up the best vivid and bold eye looks, inspired by the iridescent sparkle of precious gemstones and these have to be the most stunning looks, ever! Improve your makeup skills and try out a few unexpected colors with these bomb AF eye makeup looks

Opalescent Sapphire:

The sapphire is a precious stone that represents royalty and what a coincidence that the world's most famous Sapphire is the one Prince William gave to Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge when he proposed to her. So how can we wear this royal blue shade on our lids? The secret to rocking any colorful look is keeping it monochromatic (using shades in the same color family) this way the look doesn't fall flat and has dimension. Add complementary shades such as silver and black (because these neutrals go with everything) and you'll add a dramatic evening flair to your look! To really amp up a blue look, begin with a black base, black eye kohl works fine and layer the blues on top.


Glittery Cut Crease

Blue Vibes

Purple, fuchsia and pink look incredible when paired with blue and add a soft element to the look. Create a soft gradient effect on your lids for a halo like effect to really make the blue shade pop. Pair with metallics for a striking and bold combo!

Blue & Silver

Jeweled Tones

Precious Amethyst:


Amethyst stones are believed to have healing properties and is even dubbed the "Stone of Sobriety." Amethyst ranges from a clear, transparent purple to a beautiful lavender shade. So you can wear the shade in so many ways from dainty and girly to edgy with a grunge feel.

Ultra Violet Halo


If this isn't a shade you've worked with in the past, it may've been something you were introduced to this year, as the shade Ultra Violet was the 2018 Pantone Color of the Year and was launched in a bunch of makeup and beauty launches that found creative ways to work it in their collections with this being the most anticipated one of the year.

 Purple Vibes 

Again, monochromatic shades are the safest way to go and create a stunning gradient blend that we love! Add interest and a bit of edge to your look with graphic liner which takes your look to a whole new level.

Patel Pink & Violet

Purple Cut Crease

Monochromatic Purple

Seductive Ruby:

The ruby gemstone represents nobility and virtue and ranges from pink to blood red in color. In recent years, marsala, burgundy and cherry color palettes have all shook the beauty sphere and we just can't get enough! The deep red trend is perfect for the fall season if you're looking for smoldering, mysterious and bold looks to try.

Smokin’ Red

Burgundy Smokey

The seductive ruby red shade looks very feminine and edgy at the same time. Don't be afraid to wear red on your eyes! Surprisingly, it is one of the easiest colors to pull off and no wonder this shade is everywhere. If you haven't tried this universally flattering shade, you just need to find the perfect shade of red for your complexion and eye color. Deep red eyeshadow goes well with both nude and bold lipsticks as well as red lipstick which creates the perfect monochromatic look.

Colorful Smokey

Monochromatic Ruby

Radiant Tourmaline:

The tourmaline gemstone also has healing properties and is used in medicinal treatments. The shades range from pink to green to black and there's even a watermelon tourmaline that looks like just like a watermelon! It can also be seen in shades of yellow, red and blue - so basically it comes in nearly every color!

Daring Red Halo

Playful Cut Crease

Halo & Graphic Liner

Bright fuchsia, hot pink and a coral punch shade look splendid on darker skin tones. Soft, blushing shades of pink work well on lighter skin. Concentrate hot pink color on the center of your eyelids, keeping the inner corners of your eyes light and shimmering. Wear radiant tourmaline eyes with glossy lips and dewy skin.

Glowing Amber:

Pumpkin Spice Latte

The amber stone is believed to help balance the emotions and clear the mind. Shades range from yellow to orange and this hue couldn't be any more perfect for the fall season!

Amber Smokey

The warm amber gemstone is filled with sunlight and ancient energy and has one of the the most inspiring colors for anyone, who loves makeup. From saturated orangey shade to a light color of sweet lemonade - explore the variety of shades and use them to create the most appealing eye looks. Compliment your amber makeup with baby pink cheeks, matte nude lips and bold eyebrows. You will love the final result!


Bright Cut Crease

Metallic Cut Crease

Lustrous Emerald:

The emerald stone represents inspiration and patience and nurtures the heart. It's dubbed the "Stone of Successful Love." The shade ranges from light and bright to deep green with faint blue undertones.

Peacock Vibes

Emerald Smokey

Green Smokey

Green emeralds are considered to be the most expensive gemstones in the world because of their rarity and durability. This color deserves to get on our eyelids! Don't stop your imagination on one shade of green, try using few complimentary shades for an unusual yet striking combo.
