One of the most common things women do when they do not know how to make a statement makeup is to choose the statement lip instead. That is definitely not something new. In fact, French women find the statement lip as their go-to choice. From the NYFW, as a place where lots of new trends are born, the statement lip opened the way to the statement's eyes. More precisely, the bold eyeshadows were the focus of the makeup and beauty looks. Also, there were lots of bright eyeliners across the lids. And that was more than enough for the new trend of statement eyes to be created.
From a general take and overview of the NYFW participants, it was more than obvious that the majority of the looks that sported the statement eye went with one color on the lids. The key to a successful look of the statement eye trend is to keep the rest of the look minimal. That means a little blush and gloss across the mouth are more than enough so that the eyes can be accentuated.
Here is a quick overview of how popular and famous fashion brands incorporated statement eyes on their models.
