Whether you prefer a heavy smoky eye or a softer variation or a sleek winged effect .. And additionally, in 2014, the bottom liner creating definition is the key. Interesting!!

  • Glow Getter.. So eternal, so stylish!

Flawless skin was enhanced with fresh cheeks and no trace of any imperfections at shows such as Ralph Lauren, Jason Wu and Calvin Klein. This is a kind of eternal appeal.. isn’t it?

  • Bare Minimum

On some runways this year, complexions were left ostensibly nude. Perfect nude is the new bold it seems!

  • Vintage! The ’60s Inspired

Along with full lashes, defined lower lids, there is a perceptible retro vibe that is going to be in cool trend.

Caution: Balance your look! If you are going heavy in any one of the trends, keep the other aspects of your look simple, muted or downplayed! Like, if the metallic hints are highlighting your eyes avoid a color-pop liner! If your heavy eyelashes are creating flutters don’t go loud with your liner or lips! Just a few random examples…
