Beauty Trend Spotting: Lining the Lower Eyelid

Beauty Trend Spotting Lining the Lower Eyelid

At the Fragrance Foundation Awards last week, Taylor Swift tried out one of the hottest spring makeup looks right now–lining only the lower lid with a hot turquoise eyeshadow. While blues and greens are hot shades for eyeshadow in general this spring and summer, the method of lining only the lower lid takes it to the next level of trendy.

Stars such as January Jones, Selena Gomez and Heidi Klum have all rocked this trend, and it was spotted at the Stella McCartney Spring 2013 RTW and Chanel Resort 2014 runway shows.

It’s easy to have fun with this trend–you can determine how bold you make your version by how bright a shadow you chose, and how thick you make the line.

To recreate the look on your own, simply dip an angled eyeliner brush in water, and then swipe it in your eyeshadow–NARS Duo Cream Eyeshadow in Burn It Blue is a great option, since you have two fabulous colour choices. Then, simply apply the color directly under your lower eyelashes.

The more water you use on your brush, the more intense the colour will appear, so play around with the right level of intensity for your personal style.

    It was fashionable in the 80s. I don t like it much since it makes the eyes look smaller.

    I think it looks messy and overdone. Selena looks OK but the rest look like they smeared their makeup/put too much on.
