We all do it: We watch the runways and magazines and see stand-out makeup we totally fall for, but wonder how we can pull it off in real life. Here are three ways to wear the trending eye makeup you want in a bold, yet everyday way.

1. 24-Karat Lids

Go for the gold and try doubling up your usual eyeliner with a gold pencil eyeliner on the top lid. Using a pencil will make the look softer than using a liquid eyeliner.

2. Colored Smoky

Adding a pop of color to your smoky eye adds light to your face. Pick an eye shadow color you know suits you. Using a cream formula, lightly shade your eyes from the upper eyelids to the brow. Try a cobalt blue or a plum, like L'Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Smoldering Plum. Keeping the application amount conservative will allow the look to remain more casual.

3. Cutting Edge Lines

Black eyeliner is where it's at. Get a chic, edgy look in an instant by drawing a sharp line that thins out as it nears the end, just on the bottom eyelid.
