makeup looks How to Embrace the Watermelon Makeup Trend

Makeup artists don’t only just have the most basic makeup applications mastered—they also create one-of-a-kind looks for every season and holiday, too. One of our favorite makeup trends of the moment just so happens to be inspired by a deliciously sweet, juicy fruit: the watermelon. We’re talking watermelon-inspired eye makeup looks and lip colors. Keep reading for three watermelon makeup tutorials.


For this look, eye shadow should be applied in a triangular shape to mimic the appearance of a slice of watermelon.

What you’ll need:

L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Liquid Eyeliner in Black

L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

Red eye shadow

Kelly green eyeliner


Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Tape off a triangle on your lids

To get this shape, overlap two pieces of tape extending from each corner of your eye up to a point in the center of your lid. By taping your lids off, you can help ensure that your watermelon slices end up looking extra-crisp.

Step 2: Fill in with eye shadow

To create your watermelon slices, use a pigmented red eye shadow to fill in the triangles densely for an opaque finish.

Step 3: Apply eyeliner

While the tape is still on your lids, draw a line of kelly green eyeliner along your lash line. Make sure your line only extends for the base of the triangle.

Step 4: Draw on the seeds

Using your black liquid eyeliner, dot a few seeds onto each lid to bring your watermelon look to life.

Step 5: Finish with mascara

For the final step, apply a coat of volumizing mascara to your lashes.


Even if you don’t want to rock triangles on your lids, you can still get in on the watermelon-inspired makeup trend with this look.

What you’ll need:

L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Shape & Fill Mechanical Pencil

Black liquid eyeliner

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in White Party

L’Oréal Paris Voluminous X Fiber Mascara

L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Golden Sage

Red eye shadow

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Shape your eyebrows

Before diving into this watermelon eye makeup look, start off by shaping your eyebrows with an eyebrow pencil—that way your beautiful work will be perfectly framed.

Step 2: Apply red eye shadow

Use a fluffy eye shadow brush to dust shadow across your entire lid, making sure to stay confined to the area between your lash line and crease. For a soft finish, spend extra time blending the outer edges so that there’s not a harsh line of demarcation that could make the red shadow look clown-like.

Step 3: Create a white wing tip

Draw a crisp line from your inner corner to just beyond your outer corner using a white liquid eyeliner. The white eyeliner can help brighten your eye look.

Step 4: Dust your under-eye with eye shadow

Add the green rind into your look by dusting green eye shadow across your lower lid, staying as close to your lash line as possible so that it’s subtle but noticeable.

Step 5: Draw on seeds

Dot your upper lid with a black liquid eyeliner to create the appearance of seeds. Be sure to let your seeds dry before applying any mascara so as to prevent any transfer on your lids.

Step 6: Finish with mascara

Your statement eye isn’t complete until you top it off with a coat of fiber mascara.
