A lash looks great on everybody, Kabuki for M.A.C. explained of this makeup look, which he designed to flatter a multitude of skin tones.

Bold colored lids can be tough to pull off, but this pale pastel eye is easy to love. Este Lauder's Tom Pecheux blended the brand's Pure Color Stay-on Shadow Paint in Cosmic, Extreme Emerald, Halo and Steel (out in January) to create a shimmering, sheer wash with the faintest hint of green.

Would you ever think to wear a smoky eye sans mascara? Diane Kendal for M.A.C. reinvented the classic look in shades of silvery gray. A thin swipe of Creme Liner in Black along the top lashes stood in for mascara, giving the eye definition but keeping the look ethereal.
