Af­ter months of fo­cus­ing on the per­fect pout, it’s all about the eyes right now.

When it comes to fash­ion, girls get psyched to see throw­back closet pieces get a lit­tle do-over dur­ing the sea­son. How­ever, in the beauty world, we can’t let prod­ucts sit on our van­i­ties the same way we store our clothes since they ex­pire— so the same ex­cite­ment takes over when our makeup faves get a trend boost.

Just when sport­ing the ideal pucker has got­ten most of our at­ten­tion lately (think: our ob­ses­sion with liq­uid matte lip­stick, gra­di­ent lips and lip kits), beauty gu­rus have brought the spot­light back on the eyes this sea­son.

The Fall/win­ter run­ways see a min­i­mal­ist-ver­sus-max­i­mal­ist approach to dress­ing up peep­ers, but it’s not com­pli­cated: You can es­sen­tially choose your own ad­ven­ture de­pend­ing on how sub­tle or dra­matic you want your look to be.

Take your eye­liner, for ex­am­ple: Ap­ply­ing on your wa­ter­line might be the eas­i­est way to de­fine your eyes, but smudg­ing it a lit­tle will cre­ate depth, as seen at Marni—this al­lows you to be cock­tail­ready in no time. Achieve both tech­niques with one prod­uct, like Revlon’s 2-in1 An­gled Ka­jal Eye­liner in Onyx (P575, SM Beauty Store, SM Makati). But if you wish to take it a notch higher, add crème shad­ows into the mix. Min­i­mal­ist eyes call for a nude or light hue: Try Revlon’s Crème Shadow in Pra­line (P575) to get the same ef­fect seen at Altuzarra and Derek Lam; or cre­ate drama by dab­bing on a darker shade, like Black Cur­rant (P575), on the outer cor­ners of the eye and swip­ing a full me­tal­lic hue on the cen­ter of your lids. Ei­ther way, you’re good to go—wher­ever it

might be.
