There is a growing obsession among makeup lovers to level up their eye makeup game. The eye, after all, is the only thing visible when you are wearing a protective face mask. However, initial trends spoke about turning the eye makeup to the max, to make a bold enough statement. But what about when you are in a safe environment and can take the mask off? If your BAE has been given a fright on multiple occasions with a loud eye look and nothing to balance it out on the rest of your face — you’re doing it wrong. Yes, your eye makeup needs to be statement-making, but it should also be in harmony with the rest of your face. So, we collected some looks that look stunning with or without a face mask.
Before you begin, make sure you are prepping your skin with a primer. A formula like the Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Primer will cover up any imperfections and make the makeup go on smoothly and last longer!

Heavy on the glitter yet completely muted on the rest of face, this striking makeup look will have everybody stopping for a second look. Also, the lightly filled brows and a fresh, clear complexion complement the look perfectly.

Have you invested in white eye makeup essentials already? Matte, or glittery, liners are so in vogue this season. Especially for dusky beauties, it can make for a fabulous statement look.
3. Snatched to the max

From winged tips to cat liners, snatched eye makeup styles will always have us as takers. The sharp lines and angles add definition to your features and need minimal effort (and product) to pull off.

The trick with making pigmented eyeshadow pop is to take them down to the lower lash a little bit and then blend, blend and blend! Use a round eyeshadow brush to apply bold colours on your lids, swipe on some mascara, and you’re good to go!
BB picks: Lakme Absolute Infinity Eye shadow Palette - Midnight Magic
5. Quirky and cute

While we tried to keep our recommendations relatively easy to do, this floral moment just was too pretty to not include. Cute and vibrant details like floral designs or stars, drawn on a base shadow can add a touch of quirk to your eye. Plus, they look adorable on a muted face!
