This September the London shows gave us plenty to look at, especially when it came to the eyes. There were some real stand-out looks on the runway, the best of which we've rounded up to share with you.

Eudon Choi

Make-up artist Adam De Cruz created a cool look for Choi's spring/summer 18 catwalk, applying what looked like a heart rate monitor graph over models' eyes. He turned to MAC for the perfect finish and there are so many options on offer, from its Pro Longwear Fluidline to its Pearlglide Intense Eye Liner.

So, how can you do this yourself? Begin by mapping out small dots along the eyelid, then rise or dip slightly when you move to the side of your face to create a jagged finish. Simply join the dots up using your weapon of choice and make sure you get the kinks that resemble graph lines.

Versus Versace

Staying true to designer Donatella Versace's signature make-up look, models wore thick eyeliner on London's runway. Make-up maven Charlotte Tilbury was in charge with dolling the girls up and did a great job in making their peepers pop. Keeping lips nude, Tilbury applied heavy eyeliner all around the eyes (even the waterline) and drew a thick flick on the outer corner. We reckon she used something like her Rock 'N' Kohl liner in Bedroom Black, with a touch of eyeshadow to really give a dramatic edge.

Ashley Williams

Cosmetics expert Thomas de Kluyver also used MAC to draw bold eyeliner on Williams' women, though this one looked to be kohl rather than liquid liner.

He used red and black, with one dramatic look comprising of a circle and lines around the models' eyes, but we prefer the more wearable option. He applied red liner on the inner corner and the outer quarter of the upper and lower lash lines, with the latter joining together and drawn out to create an inward 45-degree angle. Latched onto that, from the outer corner, he drew underneath to reach the point in which the lower lash colour finishes, as well as drawing outwards slightly. Kluyver added one single black line between the outer ones to add even more depth.
