Since masks became an integral part of our lives this year, eye makeup became more prominent in 2020. Makeup artists, bloggers and beauty enthusiasts used the free time in lockdown to come up with the most unique and never-before-seen eye looks.
If you haven’t tried them already, now is your chance to do so. With New Year’s Eve only a few days away, we are sure you must be looking for eye makeup looks to take inspiration from. Here are our top five favourite eye makeup trends from 2020.

Fox eye makeup has to top this list, because of the way it completely transforms the look of your eyes. It is a technique that makes your eye appear angled and elongated, like that of a fox. If you haven’t had the chance to try it on yet, New Year’s is just around the corner. Learn how to ace the look here.
02. Coloured lower liner

As we’ve seen the most unpredictable events unfold in 2020, we weren’t surprised to see the coloured lower lash line emerge as a trend. Instead of letting your top lash line have all the fun, we saw a super-easy way to switch up the game this year. Grab one of those coloured eyeliners and try something new before the year ends.
03. Butterfly wing eye look

This year, eye makeup trends moved on from cat eyes to butterfly wing eye look. It looks so pretty and gorgeous that it made our heart flutter a little. This year, it was one of the biggest eye trends as celebrities like Bella Hadid, and makeup bloggers like Debasree posted pictures sporting this look. In case you missed it, you can check it out here.
04. Neon eyes

2020 was all about bright and bold shades. Since eyes were the only part of the face that was clearly visible after wearing a mask, bright coloured eye makeup took centre stage. Neon colours like green, fuchsia, and orange became quite a rage this year.
05. Bright mascara
Bright, bold mascara was 2020’s first major eye makeup trend. We loved how simple yet striking it looks and requires just one product to create a gorgeous look.
