Jewel-toned shadows are in for spring!New York Fashion Week has been showcasing some pretty strange makeup, hair and fashion looks, but that doesn't mean that there aren't a couple of things that can be translated into everyday life. Take, for example, jewel-toned eyeshadow.

According to The Beauty Department, designers like Jason Wu, Prabal Gurung and DVF all featured vibrant peacock shades of eyeshadow on their models. It added a dimension and intrigue to their faces that's hard to find with muted hues of shadow.

To get the look yourself, the news source suggests using a wet brush to apply a shadow like Too Faced – Single Eye Shadow in Neptune or Mess in a Dress. Just dip an eyeshadow brush like Jane Iredale – Eye Shader Brush into some water, then swirl it around in the shadow.

You can stop at the creases, or extend a little past the corners of your eyes for an edgy, cat eye shadow effect that will look gorgeous with practically any outfit. Don't forget to finish up with mascara to define your lashes.
