Besides foiling, another great way to instantly perk up your eyes and create that shiny effect is to pat glitter over a dark base. Case in point? The gorgeous glitter eye spotted at Thakoon A/W 2013.

“Thakoon’s winter collection is inspired by summer,” said lead makeup artist Diane Kendal, working for NARS Cosmetics. “So it was a combination of rich fabrics with short-sleeved dresses and heavy stoles with dragonflies. We wanted to reflect that in the makeup, so we did a very dark midnight blue shadow, but to get that summer feel we added glitter on top. It created the perfect juxtaposition between winter and summer.”
