Eye make-up is the new lipstick and these celebs are proof

As more people are stepping out in masks, wearing a full face of make-up doesn’t feel as important. And the focus is slowly shifting to the visible parts of the face that’s mainly the eyes and brows. Bored with the usual smoky kohl and basic cat-eyeliner look, we’ve scoped out some colourful inspiration that will help you express your beauty style while still practicing the public safety rules. Here’s a roundup of some celebrities that got really inventive with their make-up…

Colour play

Take a page out of supermodel Winnie Harlow’s and actor Nargis Fakhri’s book and load up on colourful eyeshadow. Top it off with cat eyeliner and falsies and you’re good to go.

Go neutral

You can’t go wrong with nude colours. Case in point: Amyra Dastur’s and Nushrat Bharucha’s matte, soft brown eyes. Tie the look together by smudging out some shadow on your bottom lash line.

Fun with liners

For Bhumi Pednekar and Ariana Grande, floating eyeliner seems to be the order of the day. The black and white versions of the popular ‘60s look have been spotted on international runways several times. If you’re looking for something more low-key, check out Karisma Kapoor’s dark green eyeliner, smudged to perfection or Vanessa Hudgens’ blink-and-you-miss-it, yellow eyeshadow and flicked black liner.

Master mascara

For an extra dose of drama, play up your mascara with multiple coats like Ileana D’Cruz or look for a densely packed pair of falsies for max glam.
