After a season full of lots of shimmering makeup, glossy bold red lipstick and iridescent finishes, it’s high time to start a new phase of trendy makeup ideas. For the upcoming season we will encounter more natural looks, light makeup, matte textures and glossy surfaces. As for our “gateways to the soul”, i. e. eyes, the famous designers offer various options to emphasize their beauty. Take a glimpse at the pictures bellow, check out which type of eye makeup will suit your eyes and update your look according to the latest makeup tendencies.
Minimalism is the hottest trend when the word goes about makeup, as our natural beauty has no matches. This means that you shouldn’t take too much effort and “paint” your eyes in an excessive way, which will make your look rather trashy and not fabulous. The less makeup you use on your eyes, the younger and fresher you look. This is a guiding principle among many famous designers for the upcoming season, when creating a perfect eye makeup. The most popular colors of subtle eye makeup are coral, beige, soft pink, baby blue, neutral and brown. Apply white eyeliner pencil to your waterline to emphasize your eyes, making them appear bigger. Use one coat mascara on your eyelashes to define their natural beauty.

If that type of eye makeup doesn’t satisfy you and you have much to tell about your eyes, then bright eye makeup is right for you. In this case apply a single vivid shade to the entire eyelid or pair up some complimentary colors to get a strong, contrasting finish. The hottest colors of eye makeup for spring/summer 2011 are lush colors, like tundra green, purple, yellow, orange, red, blue and pistachio-green.

Still nothing can be compared with smoky eyes, when you want to underline the entire beauty of your eyes and emphasize the sexiness and mysteriousness of your look. For dark colored eye makeup, use the harmonious combinations of black and silver, indigo and ivory or such vivid shades as purples, greens or electric blues.
