There’s also a whole host of new eye makeup trends that can be added to your arsenal to update your look and stand out from the crowd. Here are favourites which you can combine to make show stopping looks.

Metallic shades are the perfect way to update you smokey eyshadow routine. If you usually opt for darker shades why not try a bright silver (above). Likewise, gold eyeshadow can be switched up with copper for some warmer tones.
As always, a darker shade can then be used in the crease and the outside corner of the eyelid. Whilst contouring and highlighting makeup can be used on the inner eye and brow line.
Then it’s all about blending but we recommend applying concealer and foundation after your eye makeup to tidy any smudge marks. You can also finish with eyeliner, see more on this next.

Statement graphic eyeliner and what Beauty High call the ‘Black Out Look’ have been doing the rounds on runways in 2014. Both Lanvin and Giorgio Armani Prive have championed these eye makeup trends and now you can too.
You can then experiment to find the look for you. This could be an exaggerated cat eye, two-tone eyeliner or the eyeliner blurring upwards.
The above look can simply mean using an ole fashioned business card to achieve that straight line. Whilst the other two can be combined to get a bang on trend look by using both metallic and some eyeliner blurring.
All you need is a black eyeliner pencil plus an eyeshadow pencil. First apply an exaggerated eyeshadow line across your eyelid then a line on your lower lash line. Complete with your black eyeliner in your upper and lower water lines. Voila.
