All About the Color

For the ultimate maximalist eye makeup, say goodbye to neutrals and hello to color. Opt for vibrant shades (like yellow, blue and pink) to make the eyes pop. Remember, you’re going for a maximalist eye look, so don’t worry about doing too much – that’s the whole point!  

Our top colorful picks are the Forever Flawless Bird of Paradise Eye Shadow Palette and Renaissance Blue Eye Liner.

Funky Liner

There are endless possibilities with eyeliner. For a maximalist liquid liner look, apply a colorful liner (like our Renaissance Blue Eye Liner or our MagnetiXX Duo Chrome Eye Liner) and create a vibrant cat eye or bold wing on both the inner and outer corners of your eye. 

Or, take it that step further with some line work. Why not use your liquid liner to draw squiggly lines above each eye, creating a fun, artistic look? Graphic shapes are another great way to spice up your eye makeup. Think funky rectangles, triangles or lines to instantly take your makeup to the next level. 

If you’re not a fan of liquid liner, go easy with a pencil. Use our XXact Eye Liner Pencil in the color of your choice to shade in your waterline, or draw lines around and above the eyes to get that wow factor. 

Popping Shadows

Choose a vibrant eyeshadow to brighten your eyes. Our Revolution X Friends Flawless Palette has bright mattes, popping pastels and golden bronze shimmers designed to perfect your maximalist eye look.  

Wet your Buffing Eye Crease Brush to collect maximum pigment and tap into your favorite blue, yellow or pink. Blend out into the crease with our Revolution Create Fluffy Eye Brush 

Use bright oranges and yellows to create a sunset look, or go bolder with bright pinks and purples. Or, why not create a mini rainbow on your lid with our Makeup Revolution X Alexis Stone Eye Shadow Palette? Use as many colors as you want, just make sure they’re perfectly blended for a seamless finish. 

Glitter Galore

Take your look to the next level with eye glitter! You don’t need a big party or event to get the glitter out. It’s always a winner and is an absolute must for your maximalist look!  

Choose from our I Heart Revolution Seeker Glitter Eye Shadow Palette or I Heart Revolution Glitter Starry Eyed Palette and make sure the glitter matches your base shadows. Apply with your finger or a brush by pressing the glitter down onto your lid (don’t sweep it on!) so it stays put all day.  

Don’t forget to lock your glitter in place with a setting spray. We recommend the Matte Fix Oil Control Setting Spray, which is made with High Tech ingredients to keep eye makeup in place, with no smudging or fading. 

Long Lashes

Is it really a finished look without lashes? Top off your vibrant eyes with a bold lash. While you could apply our Wispy False Lash Mascara and flaunt long, fluttery lashes, we recommend taking the look a step further with some falsies.  

Take our 3D Faux Minx Doll Lashes and apply a thin line of Eye Lash Glue to the strip. Wait around 10-20 seconds for the glue to go tacky, then apply to your lash line using your fingers or tweezers. 

Less isn’t always more, so don’t be shy to try a maximalist eye look. You’ve got this!
