The classic smokey eye returns for the season, with Diane von Furstenberg staying true to its roots. A different approach to the look took place for Burberry Prorsum, Derek Lam, Altuzarra and Alexander Wang, with the beauty team opting for more a sheer, sensual mist, which creates a more dainty aesthetic.
Classic Winged Eye

Vera Wang nude eye
The “no makeup” look has become a beauty staple, allowing you to look naturally awake and refreshed, even if you stayed up or out all night. By dotting and blending touches of gold, nude and white around the eyes, as shown at Hugo Boss, you are immediately left with fresher looking eyes.
Or, if you want a prettier, more delicate look, use the lightest of pink, or orange eyeshadow instead. As seen at Vera Wang and Narciso Rodriguez's shows, make sure you use white eyeliner and curl your lashes to finish the look.
