BEAUTY BAR: XOXO, Glossy Girl

BEAUTY BAR: XOXO, Glossy Girl

I think we all know that a beauty moment can create just as much buzz as a fashion moment. For example, there was the glitter lip from Pat McGrath that made its mark on the Versace runway. It would later make its way into pop culture, including Taylor Swift’s wardrobe in the recent “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” music video. However, on the runway for spring/summer 2017, a glossy eye look turned heads as a perfect way to update bright eyeshadows. Makeup artist Diane Kendal was one of the first to utilize this technique for Nina Ricci’s ready-to-wear show. Now, this Fashionista has aced the trend for spring! Out of the many color options, she chose a lovely pink-orange citrus shade that is perfect for these warmer days.

Multiple brands have created a product to cater to this trend. One option is the Milk Makeup Eye Vinyl in Nude. It is a one-step application for those who are looking for something easy to try. A complementary blush and lip color finish the look. To incorporate another fun trend, use a metallic lip, such as the Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Metallized in Trick.  If you prefer a gloss, try Lancôme’s Le Metallique Metallic Lip Lacquer in Curve Casting. The shimmer adds cohesiveness without competing with the high-shine glossy eye. Also, don’t be afraid to try the original bolder colors if that is more your speed! Radiant purples and reds have also been introduced in these trends. Lastly, an edgy denim outfit provides the perfect cool contrast to the warm makeup palette this Fashionista chose.

Have fun with this look! I can’t wait to see the next new take on the glossy eye trend.
