Monochrome looks so effortlessly chic and messy but also put together at the same time. For a more natural look – more suitable for the daytime – take an eyeshadow shade similar to your skin tone and swipe it from your lid to above the crease.

If doing your whole look with multi-colors seems too daunting, then maybe start off with using a bright color for your eyeliner or even cooler, colored mascara!
See how you like those and then transition to wilder looks! Here’s my fav multicolor look:

The way I usually do this is by making asymmetric little circles on my lid and the stenciling it with black liquid liner to achieve a cheetah print look! Check this one out by Sydney Carlson:

Regardless of the occasion, you have to try this trend just because of how different it is!
Now, mismatched eye makeup can either be monochromatic looks or two entirely different eye looks on each eye, but it;s usually easier to do the monochrome look. Just pick two colors that look good together, like purple and green or orange and blue, and put each color on a different eye:
