For those who be­lieve in the ‘wake up when you makeup’ phi­los­o­phy, take a cue ladies, be­cause drama-in­fused peep­ers are back in beau­ty­dome.

While a sim­ple swipe on the wa­ter­line or a slim strip of eye­liner on the up­per lash­line will al­ways make for a clas­sic look, ex­ag­ger­ated wings, strongly-cut creases and flut­ter-per­fect faux lashes are what celebs are opt­ing for. Colour, too, is a vi­tal part of the makeup mix.

“Use colour pen­cils to give a unique touch to your eye makeup. Go for coral hues or bold berry shades for your eye­shadow. If you like ex­per­i­ment­ing, try coloured faux lashes,” sug­gests makeup ex­pert Kanikka Gau­raav Tan­don. Even though there are ba­sic tricks and tools that can give your eyes that oomph fac­tor, the ‘rule of bal­ance’ still stands strong.

For ex­am­ple, if you feel like do­ing a bold lip, keep the eyes sim­ple. “If go­ing for a state­ment lip colour, don’t go heavy on the eyes or any other part of the face — you don’t want to look over the top. Maybe you could go for a strik­ing, sin­gle-stroke of eye­liner cou­pled with dark lips if you want to draw at­ten­tion to both,” says makeup ex­pert Puja Taluja.

We scoured and found some eye-full of ac­tion that has caught our at­ten­tion. From desi run­ways and the Bol­ly­wood band­wagon to Hol­ly­wood celebs — here’s some in­spi­ra­tion for you to cre­ate that high-volt­age drama for your eyes.
