In 2015 you can wear the eyeshadow not only over the eyelid but you can play with it geometrically around the eye.

Don’t be afraid to try a bold eye look with a smoky eye effect or a cat eye. Feel free to incorporate some glitter or a jewel tone into your eye shadow to bring out your natural eye color.
Complete your makeup with a natural foundation and a nude lipstick: let your eyes speak for you!
