Eyeshadow is in transit for spring 2011, traveling from the lid to just above the inner corners of the eye and up to the brow—a triangular eye makeup look that highlights the eye in a unique, structured way and creates a 3D effect when viewed on profile. At Kimberly Ovitz, MAC artist Luc Bouchard got extra angular with a graphic black triangle that matched the black and white theme of the collection; at Derek Lam, makeup artist Tom Pecheux for Estee Lauder complemented a coral eye (yes, it's lipstick!) with a white triangle; and at Preen, MAC artist James Kaliardos used a pop of bright, blue pastel and paired it with a taupe shadow on the crease of the lids.
