Trend To Try: Upside Down Eye Makeup
Posted on September 18 2017
Want to go bold? Search no further than the latest and most head-turning red carpet beauty trend: upside down eye makeup.
This edgy look is exactly what the name implies – a pop of color worn just under your eyes while the top lid remains bare – and it's super easy to DIY. The secret to getting the best results is to choose a shade that works well with your eye color and also pairs harmoniously with the rest of your makeup (i.e. your blush and lipstick). While blue is a celebrity-favorite hue for this trend, any tint that’s opposite your eye color on the color wheel will pop.
Follow the instructions for this unexpectedly chic look below.
- Select a non-smudge eyeliner and eyeshadow in the same high-impact color (or something very similar). We recommend our Eyeliner in Ocean and our Eyeshadow in Ice Princess.
- After applying Eye Primer and Black Mascara, take your liner and rim the bottom inner lash line. Make sure not to leave any gaps between your lashes.
- Draw a line directly below that – not any thicker than to where your bottom lashes touch your face – and softly smudge as you go to avoid a harsh appearance.
- Press your matching shadow over the entire lash line with a Blender Brush and blend.
