Let's face it—while makeup is certainly an art form, most stick to the same tried-and-true techniques. We seldom ever wear our most abstract eye designs out in public. But your face is considered a living canvas, so why do we restrict shape and color within the confines of the lid?
Whether you're inspired by art history or your own imagination, it's easy to experiment on your eyes. Love Impressionist art? Use colored eye liners to sketch out hurried brushstrokes underneath the lash line and towards the brow bone. Soft spot for the Baroque and Rococo style? Gild your lids and lashes in gold. A fan of futurist paintings? Play with graphic eye liner away from the lash line.
