Instagram has #blessed us with quite an array of unique makeup trends that are fun to stare at. Some of you might be inclined to recreate said looks (squiggly brows, anyone?) while others might stick to quiet observation as a means of showing your creative appreciation. Bold eye makeup is far from new to the Instagram world, and now that spring is nearing closer and closer, we’re coming across more floral eye makeup looks — from intense faux-applied flowers with glamorous shadows to intricate floral cut creases.

To prove it, we took to Instagram to share some of our favorite floral eye makeup looks that are actually groundbreaking — no Meryl Streep-like sarcasm intended.

For a watercolor floral look…

Self-taught makeup artist Ewelina Niemiec used the Kryolan Professional Aquacolor Palette and NYX Professional Makeup Vivid Brights Liner in Vivid Blossom to create her watercolor flowers.
