Does the new feed come in at the switch box? If so then 2 lines need to go from the switchbox to the 1st fixture on each side.Then from the 1st to the 2nd fixture on each side.The most important thing is to make sure the fixtures you get are listed for damp/wet locations {i.e showers,bathrooms,etc}They should also be on a GFCI circuit.This can berdone by wiring a GFCI receptacle before the switch for the lights with the feed that you ran.If you need more info post back.
