Taking your makeup look to the next level is all in the details. Sure, simple, no-makeup, makeup looks have solidified a place in our hearts, but there’s nothing quite like nailing something new that has a unique flair to it.
As the weather is warming up, there’s no better time to experiment with fun looks, and incorporating vivid colors in our fashion and makeup choices is becoming more appealing. And if you’ve been keeping up with beauty trends, then you know that face jewels and graphic eye looks — two perfect ways to get creative with makeup —- are ultra-popular right now.
So keep the focus on your eyes, take out your gems and colorful eyeshadows and keep reading because below, we’re sharing three ways to up your makeup game this season with gorgeous under-eye embellishments.
1. Pop of Color With Solo Under-Eye Wispie
Two of the best ways to make your eyes pop is by brightening the center of the eyes and accentuating your lashes. This look combines both techniques in one by placing a light, bold eyeshadow color at the center of the bottom lash line and topping it off with an individual lash wispie. The bright eyeshadow color in the center of the eye creates the illusion of a rounder, more wide awake eye, and the individual eyelash gives the look a unique twist.
Simply apply a colorful eyeshadow shade, like the lightest teal color in the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Eyeshadow Quad in Avant Garde Azure, and top it off with a small, false singular eyelash wispie.
2. Bottom Heavy Graphic Eyeliner
Graphic eyeliner and eyeshadow looks have been gaining popularity, but more often than not they’re focused on the upper eyelid. With this look, the focus is all on the under-eye area in a way that defines it while also creating a lifted look.
While you can certainly create a graphic look on your under-eye area using an eyeliner pencil or liquid liner alone, opting to blend it out using eyeshadow makes for a softer, more diffused result. Outline your shape with a creamy pencil, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner, and then soften and detail the look with matte eyeshadows and small pencil eyeshadow brush.
3. Under-Eye Jewel Accents
They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but for makeup lovers, it’s face gems. Nothing brightens the under-eye area or grabs attention quite like some strategically placed jewel accents.
Apply some small gems in your favorite shapes and colors to your under-eye area using eyelash glue or makeup adhesive. The best part about it is that you can pair these embellishments with any simple makeup look to give it an extra something special — even the most simple look.
