#BeautyTrendAlert – Glossy Eyelids
Forget everything you thought you knew about eye make up, there is a new trend in the building! Gone are the days when matte and shimmer eyelids dominated the make up scene, this year, the glossy lid is having its great debut.
While the trend is nothing new, greasy lids are doing big things in 2017 as stars take to the lustrous look. After seeing this luminously sexy look, you might want to dig out those lip glosses from your 90s days and swop them for your eyelids.
The effortlessly seductive look is chic and super easy to attain. The beauty of the glossy lid is that it can be worn clear or in colour and can be achieved with the easiest of products.
It’s up to you whether you use regular lip gloss, good old Vaseline, eye gloss, face oil or even baby oil – all of these will give you the look you’re after.
To get the clear and subtle look, simply dab your gloss of choice over your eyelids (moving from the centre all the way out), line your eyes with an eyeliner, apply some mascara and you’re good to go!
If you want to run away from a sticky lid that may break in consistency, avoid your crease and apply around it! Add a bold lipstick for pure glam.
For a colour-filled gloss look, first apply a bright eyeshadow over your eyelids then swipe your gloss of choice over the eyeshadow – mixing them to form a smooth glossy consistency.
You can use your fingers or shadow brush for better application. For a wetter and glossier look, swop your powder based shadow for a liquid, gel, or cream shadow.
You can go wild with this look, play around with it and still come out winning! It’s fresh, trendy and sexy! Give it a bash and let us know if this is a beauty style for you!
