Bring out the beauty of your eyes by turning towards the newest trends in makeup, as they can instantly give you that seductive touch that makes heads turn. Inspire yourself from the following runway eye makeup ideas for spring/summer 2011 and you'll look gorgeous!
For the new season, the new fashion trends have already
been set with the makeup tendencies following up closely. After a
season which laid emphasis on lots of shimmer, iridescent finishes
and glossy, ruby red lips, it's time to transition to a new
chapter. The new makeup colors and finishes are
inspired by the textures, surfaces of textiles presented in the
runway collections. Makeup trends alternate beautifully between
natural, barely-there looks to bold and bright finishes, textures
juggling with matte or extremely glossy surfaces.
The eyes are considered to be the "gateway to the soul", as you can tell a lot of things just by looking into someone's eyes. If you're looking to enhance this feature, take a cue from the following eye makeup ideas for spring/summer 2011 straight from the runway.

Minimal makeup is ageless and perfect for day wear as well as evening, meaning you'll look fabulous from day to night, without having to change or redo your makeup. The most popular eye makeup colors used for this type of makeup are soft pink, baby blue, coral as well as beige, neutral and brown. Use a white eyeliner pencil on your waterline to make your eyes look bigger and brighter. Curl lashes and use one coat of mascara to define your eyelashes.
Bright eye makeup
If you're ready to make a statement, then bright eye makeup is
definitely for you.
Richly pigmented, saturated eye shadows are in perfect harmony with the season's fashion color trends. You can apply a single vivid shade to the entire eyelid or pair up complementary colors for a strong, contrasting finish. The hottest colors of spring/summer 2011 include lush colors such as red, orange, blue, pistachio-green, tundra green, purple, yellow.
Smokey eye makeup
When it comes to underlining the beauty of the eyes, nothing can
be compared to the effects of the smokey eye makeup. Smokey eyes
create a very sexy and mysterious look, so bring out your eyes
using dark colored makeup. Use amazing color combinations such as
