From ‘out there’ to ‘more out there’, say hello to the latest trend in town: statement eye shadows! Be it Lilly Collins with her rose gold eyes or Deepika Padukone in her emerald ones at the Cannes Film Festival, celebrities across the globe seem to be falling head over heels in love with this trend. Even our Pakistani makeup artists have decided to stow away the basic shades and give statement eyeshadows a go!
If you’re still weary of layering on that aqua eye pencil, we bring you five statement looks that will surely convert you from a Plain Jane to a sassy one.
Who says matching is for babies? Deepika Padukone matched her eyeshadow to her gown at Cannes and made us go green with envy. I don’t know anyone who can pull off such an edgy makeup look and yet look so effortless!
Selena Gomez’s met gala look was eye-catching to say the least. Her simple nude lips paired with the intense pink eyeshadow made her eyes pop and breathed life into her otherwise mundane attire.
Our very own makeup artist Raana Khan tried this look on three different models and won us over. She did a subtle look one the first one, went all glittery on the second, and saved the dramatic red winged look for the end. We suggest you rock these looks at the beach because the sun will do wonders for these shades!
Bina Khan’s peacock inspired eye makeup is goals! We love how the turquoise shade makes the brown eyes stand out. This is the perfect look for a Saturday night out. Just make sure you keep the dress simple.
Fatima Nasir kills it when it comes to acing the statement eyeshadow look. Each one of her look is filled with details and bright colors, and yet it doesn’t make you resemble a clown.
Try this new makeup trend for you next night out or spice up that lazy afternoon with friends. It may seem a bit over the top initially, but I bet you ladies will be gushing over it in no time!
