Best Eye Makeup Trends for 2018 Best Eye Makeup Trends for 2018 Best Eye Makeup Trends for 2018

It’s pretty easy to fall into a makeup rut, and that’s particularly true when it comes to eye makeup. After all, black eyeliner and neutral eye shadow are flattering on just about everyone—and they’re not all that difficult to apply (especially if you’ve been using them day in and day out). But sometimes it can be fun to step outside your makeup comfort zone and try a few new beauty trends. That’s why we’re sharing our favorite eye makeup trends for 2018. So, go ahead and make trying new eye makeup looks one of your resolutions for the new year!

Eye Makeup Trend #1: Extreme Lash Volume

Put down your everyday mascara and reach for a fiber mascara instead in 2018 for major drama. The L’Oréal Paris Voluminous X Fiber Mascara features a lash primer, which helps to build volume, on one end, and a fiber-infused mascara, which adds even more volume, on the other. All you have to do is apply the primer, then apply the fiber-infused mascara.

Eye Makeup Trend #2: Allover Metallic Eye Shadow

Heavy metals are in—well, when it comes to eye shadow, that is. Metallic eye shadow broke out on the beauty scene in 2017, and it’s only going to be more popular in 2018. Go bold by applying a metallic eye shadow shade all over your lid. The L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Metallic Eye Shadow comes in five shimmery shades: Rose Chrome, Brass Knuckles, Caged, Violet Luster, and Aluminum Foil.

Eye Makeup Trend #3: Sunset Eyes

Can you think of anything prettier than a sunset? We thought not. That’s why it makes sense that the sunset eye is one of the biggest eye makeup trends around these days—and why it’ll continue to stay on top in 2018. You don’t have to wait until summer 2018 to create this makeup look, though—we say try it anytime of the year! Head on over to our article, How to Create Sunset Eye, for a step-by-step tutorial.

Eye Makeup Trend #4: Bold Lower Lashes

When you’re applying mascara, you might skip completely over putting it on bottom lashes, but you’re going to want to pay attention to them in 2018. That’s because bold bottom lashes are now an eye makeup trend. Use the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara to coat your top and bottom lashes (no need to use separate mascaras!).

Eye Makeup Trend #5: Smudged Eyeliner

Things are about to get messy in 2018. Smudged black eyeliner is here! This eye makeup look has a punk rock vibe that can be created with the help of a black pencil eyeliner. Try it with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner in Black for a makeup look that lasts. Get step-by-step instructions for creating a smudged eyeliner look by reading our article, How to Wear Smudged Black Eyeliner.

Eye Makeup Trend #6: Feathery Brows

Brows are big in 2018—and we mean that literally and figuratively. Eyebrow makeup can help you create the appearance of thicker-looking brows in a jiffy. Use the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Boost & Set Mascara, which has a gel mousse formula, to create the appearance of thicker-looking eyebrows. Start with clean brows, then take the angled skinny brush and apply brow mascara in short, upward strokes to boost the look of volume. You can build to your desired intensity and shape.

Eye Makeup Trend #7: Color Blocked Eyeliner

Why wear one shade of eyeliner when you can wear two? Take your cat eye to the next level by applying wings one right on top of the other in two different colors. Cat eyes are best when done with liquid eyeliner, so pick up the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner and paint on double wing tips. We’re partial to pairing White Party with Electric Blue.
