best colourful eye makeup looks

Bold, whimsical, and inventive – we are setting the tone for 2024 with a curation of glamorous eye makeup looks. With the use of vibrant hues in unique textures, these dopamine-inducing looks are sure to add immense definition to your gaze with a hint of drama. The best part? Recreating these glam avatars doesn’t call for infallible technique – all you need is an intuitive sense of colour selection/application.

So skirt around your regular nude, black, and grey palettes and dabble in some colour now to spark joy! Whether it’s a sparkly strobe of colour along the lid or a saturation of orange-ish hues mimicking a sunset – the options are endless!

Rainbows and Sunshine

Taste the rainbow with this multi-hued eye makeup look. With a soft hand, take a generous helping of a green shade (of your choice) to work the inner corner, slightly projecting on either side of the eye. Once the green is on and even, get cracking on a striking blue and create a seamless flow between these two tones. Carry the above steps with all the remaining shades of a rainbow!

Just Wing It

If you wish to create a colourful eye makeup look sans the worry of blending eyeshadow(s), this one's for you. Opt for a blue (or a colour of your choice) eyeliner to create a modest wing. Now, locate your crease and create a mini flick – protruding upwards in the same shade of blue for symmetry.

My Baby Blue

To add depth and definition to your beautiful eyes, might we suggest an easy-breezy eyeshadow trick? Take an ice-blue glitter shadow to underline your lower waterline and inner corners. Now, without scooping more pigments, run the same brush on the entirety of the lids for a soft-focused look.

Here Comes The Sun

Recreate the effect of crisp sun rays kissing your skin on the beach with this creative and colourful eye makeup look. Take a light-toned terracotta and brush it gently on the lid, contained well within the crease. Next, with a bright orange, accentuate your lower waterline and proceed to sketch a cat eye. For some razzle-dazzle, consider adding a few rhinestones on the crease.

Shimmer and Shine

A little glitter hurt nobody ever! Try the classic wing in a metallic shade to amp up your glam instantly. If you are working with pressed pigments, use a kohl pencil to sketch your flick first. Top this up with coloured glitter of your choice and you’re good to roll.

Pink Perfection

Add a pop of colour to your eyes with a hypnotic graphic liner. Admittedly, sketching fine, precise lines requires some practice – a contemporary take on the trend leaves little room for flubs. The aforementioned look highlights the shape of your eyes with a few strobes on the crease and the extreme corners of the eyes.

Create this time-saving yet alluring eye look with just one palette.

Lavender Haze

The beaming and bright lavender is ideal for an effervescent and romantic eye makeup look. After you apply your black liner for definition, use a stamp brush to apply the lavender pigments on the lids and the lower waterline. Top up the colour if you desire a more saturated contour.

Just a Touch Whimsical

Venture out of your comfort zone with this whimsical and flamboyant eye look. Start with a mellow carnation or rose quartz to cover the entirety of your lid. Without topping the stamp brush, take a swing at the lower lash line. Once the shade of pink is on, use a cherry liner to draw a wing and an accent at the corner of your eye. For the wow factor, highlight your crease with a convex curve.
