Know this: you’re already beautiful when bare-faced. But it’s fun to play with makeup, and it can be especially fun when your lashes are already on point. Try these trending techniques to top off the look!
1. Winged eyeliner
Winged eyeliner, also known as the cat eye, is a simple and timeless look that can add depth and drama, and glam to your eyes. Once you’ve mastered the winged technique, it’s easy to make it your own. Apply a subtle wing at the outer corner of your lashline for minimalist glam, or drag out the length of your cat-eye to for a bold statement. Either method will draw focus toward your eyes — and, of course, to your fabulously full lashes!
2. Full brows
Full brows are in full force this season… and they don’t seem to be going away anytime soon. There are many options to pump up your natural brow volume, including professional tinting, brow filler kits, and tinted brow pomade. The key is to use products that complement your skin tone and hair color, just as you would with blush or lipstick shades.
Shimmer can range from light luminescent powder to fun and bold eye glitter. It all depends on the occasion and your preferences! Current glitter trends are taking a more refined approach, such as a simple line of liquid glitter liner or a light dusting just underneath the lower lashline before a big event or party.
4. Mattes and metallics
Because you won’t need to wear mascara with your extensions, eyeshadow and eyeliner are going to be your lashes’ next best friends. Both matte textures and metallic shades have their place. Copper is a gorgeous option when going for a smokey eye (especially for people with brown or hazel eyes), or you can pair a matte lid with a touch of metallic along the lower lashes.
5. Bare or nude tones
If you prefer to go au naturale, you can do so while still achieving a pop of dimension with your lash extensions! Alternatively, keep things simple and subtle by blending a peach-toned shadow to create just a touch of rosiness.
