Over the past year, many of us have adjusted our beauty routines, opting for more simplified makeup routines. While lipsticks may no longer be a go-to, what with mask-wearing being status quo, eye makeup has taken centre stage.
Whether you are looking for products to achieve natural brows and lashes or experimental shades of eyeshadows, this new crop of eye makeup products is what you need to get yourself prepped now that restrictions have been lifted.
This sleek and compact eyeshadow palette comes with five warm shades of cinnamon, blush pink, deep purple, coppery red and platinum grey.

Bonus: the palette comes embossed with an exquisite feather pattern that is exclusive to the collection.
Now available in 14 shades, this creamy pencil eyeliner is resistant to humidity, water, and sebum, and does not smudge. This versatile product can be used in a multitude of ways. It can be applied along the upper lash line for a natural look, as a kohl for a more dramatic finish, or extend it in a gradually thickening line toward the outer corner of the eye for a more sophisticated style.
The new eyebrow pencil comes in six shades and is said to be designed specifically with an ultra-fine nib edge for a precise finish. It also comes equipped with a water and smudge-proof formula that is non-drying and sits comfortably on the brows for a natural look. And of course, its sleek pale pink casing with gold trims and Gucci letterings is an added bonus beauty enthusiasts are sure to love.

The limited-edition eye palette is packed with eight matte, metallic and shimmer shades. These are inspired by the shades and artistry used to create Disney’s Cruella’s on-screen makeup looks. The saturated, soft and smooth shades come in limited-edition two-toned packaging that splits down the middle with a fuss-free magnetic design.
