Glittery Cat Eye

This 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.

Bronzed Brown Halo Eye

Embrace the darker side of your palette by playing around with various shades of brown. This chic take on the halo eyeshadow trend pairs a shimmery bronze eyeshadow with a contrasting color cut crease to create a sultry eye makeup look that actually brightens up your face. 

Geometric Shapes

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.

Flower Power Shadow 

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 

Offering an edgy, runway vibe, this look features richly pigmented shadows in neon yellow, bright pink, and lime green hues. Pick the color you love best and swipe it onto your lids, being sure to use an eyeshadow primer for max intensity. 

Sunset Eyeshadow 

Featuring a gorgeous blend of coralgoldpurple, and red eyeshadows this autumn-inspired eye makeup creates an all-around stunning look. follow our tutorial, How to Create a Sunset Eye to get the look.

All White 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.

Glossy Greens 

An ultra-wet, super glossy eye makeup look gives your eyes the shining finish they deserve. Reach for a powder eyeshadow in a gorgeous green shade and dust the eyeshadow all over your lids. Then, using a lip gloss that’s eye-safe, apply a small amount over the Eyeshadow to bring your wet eyeshadow look to life.

Tie-Dye Eyeshadow 

Ideal for those who don’t shy away from bold trends, this look gives the rainbow eyeshadow look a creative spin. Stick with a psychedelic spiral of multiple bright shades or just two for a color block twist.

Floating Fluorescent 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.
