We’re used to seeing vivid colors pop on eyelids, but now bright hues are prominently showing up underneath the eye. Interestingly enough, it actually looks fantastic. Thinking of giving it a go? See how these four gals use color to emphasize their gorgeous eyes.

Kelly Rowland
The statuesque songbird’s gaze is accentuated with a pretty blue hue dusted beneath her big brown eyes. Get The Look: MAC Pro Longwear Eyeshadow in Styledriven, $20 at | Wet ‘n Wild Megalast Retractable Eyeliner in Navy, $1 at


Corinne Bailey Rae
We love how the wide-eyed chanteuse accents her pretty deep purple frock with a sparkly lavender shade liberally swept underneath her eyes. Get The Look: NARS ‘Larger Than Life’ Long Wear Eyeliner in Bourbon Street, $23 at | Urban Decay Stardust Eyeshadow in 54, $20 at
Leona Lewis

I’m not really feeling this trend. I was secretly hoping that it wouldn’t catch on. Is that wrong of me? LOL

lol. It’s a hard trend to pull off. A titch too much shadow and you’ll look like a kid playing in mom’s makeup.

I love it! I’ve tried it but have not quite mastered it just yet.
