After a year of wearing minimal makeup thanks to COVID-19, we’re itching to experiment with bold, head-turning eye looks. So whether you want a bright colored wing, iridescent shadow or color-blocked eyes, we have just the inspiration to get you started. It’s time to turn on your ring light, prepare your brushes and get ready to try one of the statement looks below.

Iridescent Dreamsicle

Iridescent eyes are one of the biggest trends of summer. @Anaharven takes the craze to the next level by creating a pastel gradient and adding gems along her crease.

Vivid Cut Crease

If you get bored of using traditional eyeshadow, try using colorful eyeliners to create a graphic cut crease look. You can recreate this neon and pastel masterpiece from @makeupbydutch with the NYX Professional Makeup Epic Wear Liquid Liners.

Subtle Statement

If you’re not ready to experiment with multiple colors, try using one vivid shadow for an understated yet vibrant look like @whos.katrina does. Start by blending a neutral brown eyeshadow all over your lids then pack a high-pigmented pastel shade in your inner and outer corners. 

Neon Candy

Get ready to dance the night away with neon candy eyes by @thais_make_up21. This simple look only requires three colors: bright orange, pink and yellow — all of which are in the YSL Beauty Couture Clutch Eyeshadow Palette.

Blue Daisies

Upgrade a traditional cut crease by incorporating gems and dotted flower designs. We love how @kamillegregory incorporated striking blue eyeliner into this playful look.
