5 Creative Eye Makeup Trends from the Fall/Winter 2017 Catwalks

Whether you prefer to reflect the season’s fiery hues or brighten the mood with dramatic color blocking, the Fall/Winter 2017 catwalks provided plenty of inspiration for creative eye makeup looks.

Harajuku Lashes

As seen at: Jeremy Scott, Tadashi Shoji, and MSGM

The doll look is in with bold fake lashes decorated in glitter and pops of bright color. Other takes on the style include clumpy morning-after lashes, or bottom-heavy eyes where all the fuss is on the lower lashes. Vogue calls it “lash maximalism.”

Magnetic Metals

Metallics as seen at: Pamella Roland and The Blonds

Frosty greys as seen at: Derek Lam and Victoria Beckham

Start with sparkling lids, but also add shine on the lips and a touch of highlighter for overall radiance. Or opt for the moody intellectual look with grey eyeshadow and soft mascara.

Color Blocking 

As seen at: Emilio De La Morena, Zadig Et Voltaire, Anna Sui, Oscar de la Renta

We love the powerful color combo seen at Oscar de la Renta, which combined a thick band of fuchsia eyeliner nearly covering the lower lid, and a light blue shadow directly above it – no blending or shading, just pure, clashing, two-tone statements.

Graphic Eyeliner

As seen at: Yves Saint Laurent, Versace, and Balmain

Think straight or curved lines of black (or even white) eyeliner that swoop across the center of the lid rather than just above the lashes, giving the arc a floating effect. Or a lower lid completely filled in with black liner but with a top border that stretches straight across, above the crease, and meets the outer corners of the brows in a dramatic flourish.

Rose Tinted

As seen at: Marchesa, Altuzarra, and Proenza Schouler

From soft ballerina pink to brighter apricot, 2017’s rosy lid look calls to mind Girl with a Pearl Earring. It was complemented with bleached brows and lashes for an utterly ethereal beauty. Keep lips in the same pastel color range, only going as far as magenta for a stronger impact.
