No matter how you’re heading “back to school” this year, it’s going to look a lot different than it has in the past. But just because you’re hitting class over Zoom or wearing a face mask IRL doesn’t mean you have to compromise your makeup looks. In fact, getting creative with your eye makeup during this back-to-school season is the sense of normalcy we’re craving, so we rounded up five cool eye makeup looks for you to try.

Daisy Dreams

Got some extra time before your Zoom class to get creative with liquid eyeliner? Try this look by @pradaolic. It’s simple, easy to recreate and will beautifully frame bare lids. Pro tip: We recommend using the NYX Professional Makeup Epic Wear Liquid Liners in any colors you like to perfect this look.

Go Squiggly

Playing around with squiggly lines ups the ante for your eye makeup this fall. We love this look by @aniyah.s because it allows your eyes to be the main focal point — uber important if you’re wearing a mask. Check out this similar tutorial we created with @pradaolic that breaks down how to get the look.

Floating Shadow

Changing up the placement of your inner corner eyeshadow is a fun challenge, and we recommend taking a hint from this look by @frankiepdarling. The inner corner shadow actually sits at the inner crease and works its way up to the brow bone for a really unique look. The Urban Decay Wired Palette will help you recreate the look.

Curved Creases

Who says your eyeliner has to sit on your upper or lower lash line? Instead, swipe it along your crease in a multicolored curved rainbow like this look by @luciphyrr. The NYX Professional Makeup Epic Wear Eyeliner Sticks will get the job done.

Boxy Bliss

Wing-shaped shadow is so last year. This season is all about  boxy shadow and liner. This look by @halfagemini makes a great case for it, and it’s easy to recreate the look using the L’Oréal Paris Le Liner Signature Mechanical Eyeliner, thanks to its smudge-resistant finish. Finish the look with the L’Oréal Paris Bambi Eye Extra Noir, and you’re good to go!
