Whether you're bored with your nude eyeshadow palette or just looking for proof that the fashion world is run by a bunch of crazed fingerpainters, there's something here for you, 'cause eye makeup was one of the zaniest elements on the runways during the past four weeks of fashion shows. And remember, just because you wouldn't wear any of these looks doesn't mean you shouldn't.

A thin line of bright blue eyeliner on the bottom waterline, extending out into a cat-eye flick, gave the Marc Jacobs models (and their choppy wigs) a soft, mournful look.

Badgley Mischka

Badgley Mischka's models had a wash of baby blue all the way up to the brows, tempered by demurely coiffed hair. Blue was everywhere on Spring 2014 eyes — maybe the '80s are back? (Nooo!)

The vaguely ratty hair and smudgy eyes are a natural combination, but the blinding white eyeshadow on the inner half of each eye made this look unexpectedly angelic.

You know what they say: It's not spring until you're dabbing chartreuse eyeshadow around your lids and forgoing mascara! (The look also came in lavender.)

Just Cavalli

This is high school eyeliner at its finest: super smudgy, imperfect, definitely overdone, and headed straight for Hot Topic.

Rochas

Plum eyeshadow gave the Rochas models a dreamy, bruised-lilac look; the messy hair and slightly wine-stained lip make this girl look like she's been up all night, trading stories around a vineyard bonfire.

Dior

We already wrote about Dior's brow jewelry here, but let's just stare at it again.

Dries Van Noten

More gold for eyes, and I don't hear a soul complaining. At Dries Van Noten, tiny pieces of gold thread were glued among the eyelashes.

Prada

We've seen pastel eyes before, but feathered pastel eyes? Talk about the Rites of Spring.

Cushnie et Ochs

Who says the smoky eye has to stay around your eyelashes? Go big or go home. Also, go metallic.

Yellow and blue were definitely favorites for spring makeup (remember this two-toned eye?). A line of neon yellow eyeshadow mimics the idea of gold — it's so bright, it seems to sparkle — without the glitz.

Chanel

With a look this bold, who needs lipstick/a manicure/a blowdryer/a job? The Chanel eye was a cross between a masquerade mask and a kindergarten painting; either way, it was impossible to look away.
