Glittery Cat EyeThis bold and shimmery spin on classic winged eyeliner is an easy way to elevate any eye makeup look. To create, use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible The Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner to draw a flawless winged eyeliner, and then place glitter or makeup gems inside the lines to embellish your cat-eye.
Step outside of the box and try a gorgeous eyeshadow look featuring geometric shapes. Similar to the popular graphic eyeliner trend this sister style uses one or two shadows to create intricate makeup shapes that are (kind of) easy to recreate.
Nail art isn’t the only place where your love for flowers can make a beauty statement. You’ll need to bring your artistic skills to your makeup application to create this dainty daisy eyeshadow look. Start by painting a pastel blue landscape on your lids using the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Pocket Palette Eyeshadow in Avant Garde Azure, then decorate your eyes with small floral designs in a soft pink eyeshadow hue.

Neon Highlighter Eyeshadow
White eyeshadow may sound like a shock but when done right it’s the perfect illuminating makeup look. Grab your go-to white eyeshadow and apply the color on your lids, then extend it upward and outward to cover your entire eye area. Use a dark shadow to create a soft smokey eye on the outer edges of your lids then apply black eyeliner along your upper lash line.
All White Eyeshadow
This look is all about turning bright shades into a high-fashion eye-catching look. Set the stage by brushing a fluorescent orange eyeshadow onto your crease and continue the color into a slightly winged line. Then, follow with a thin line of pink eyeshadow on the top of your lid using the floating eyeliner technique.
