Pastel, that is! From the red carpet -- doesn't Kristen Bell look fabulous with that pale blue shadow highlighting her eyes? -- to the models at the Chanel Resort 2009 show, summer is all about lightening things up and having fun. Glossy pink lips paired with pale blues, pinks and greens on the lids will totally punch up your look. Read on to find out which eyeshadows are the ones you just shouldn't leave home without!

Too Faced, Duo Eye Shadow, Too Faced Duo Eye Shadow, duo eyeshadow, pastel, pastel eyeshadow, pastel shadowToo Faced Duo Eye Shadow in Boy Toy ($17 at I'm a huge fan of all shadow duos by this line, but this one is totally one of my faves. The light pink and silver hues are perfect whether you're going for the colored corners look (click here for more info on that trend!) or want a wash of color all over the lid. Not only are they highly pigmented, they'll stay for hours without creasing or fading.

Bonne Bell, Eye Style, Shadow Box, eyeshadow, shadow, eye shadow, pastel shadow, pastel eyeshadowBonne Bell Eye Style Shadow Box in Cool Blues ($3.95 at All of the Shadow Boxes are fab -- the four colors in each one all complement each other perfectly.
