2020 Biggest Eye Makeup Trends

So after months of stalking the feeds of beauty gurus, makeup artists, and celebrities, We’ve rounded up the biggest makeup trends of 2020 worth trying out during, and after, quarantine. Prepare to screenshot these looks on your phone—these 2020 makeup trends are (and will be) everywhere.

1. Colorful Lower-Liner Makeup Trend


Instead of letting your top lash line have all the fun, try out this 2020 makeup trend instead. All you have to do is line your lower lashes with either the same color or a lighter shade than the one that’s on top. It’s a super easy way to add a fun element into your look.

2. Animal-Print Eyeshadow Trend

3. Glossy Eyeshadow Trend

Over powder eyeshadows? This 2020 makeup trend—aka glossy lids—looks just as fire as any sultry smokey eye. And it takes, like, half the time. Add a few dots of eye gloss right above your lash line, then use your finger to blend it up toward your crease.

4. Bright Mascara Makeup Trend

It’s time to give your black mascara a break and experiment with this 2020 makeup trend—a colored hue on your lashes. If you don’t think you can pull off a bright-pink mascara like this, layer on a deep-blue or green mascara instead. They’ll look neutral at first glance but def make people do a double take.

5. Neon Makeup Trend

Even as someone who loves doing the most with their makeup, the allover neon trend you’ve been seeing on your feed is getting a tad tiring. Thankfully, things are getting a fresh, minimalist makeover with this 2020 makeup trend. Instead of sweeping a neon shadow over your entire lid, try tapping a neon shade into the corners of your eyes for a quick hint of color.

6. Floating Eyeliner Makeup Trend

Your eyeliner doesn’t have to stick to your lash line anymore. Grab a liner and color outside the lines by re-creating this 2020 makeup trend: A floating liner look, seen here on Shay Mitchell.

7. Watercolor Makeup Trend

 Choose one color for your inner corner, another for the center of your lid, and a last color for the outer third of your lid. You’ll end up with a cool multicolor look like this.

8. Pastel Eyeliner Makeup Trend

Neon eyeliner was all the rage in 2019, but in 2020, you’re going to see pastel eyeliner—like this light-pink color—starting to take over your Insta feed. The 2020 makeup trend is a quick and easy way to add a subtle touch of color to your eyes without going overboard.

9. Bedazzled Eye Makeup Trend

10. Mismatched Eyeshadow

If you’re into taking risks with your makeup, this 2020 makeup trend is for you. Instead of sticking to just one eyeshadow color, try a different shade on each eye. You can go bold and wear two shades that are opposite each other on the color wheel (like the blue-and-orange look here) or be a little bit more subtle by choosing two similar hues (think: baby blue and lilac).

11. Red Smokey Eye Makeup
