Glossy Lids Are Spring’s Breakout Trend

The Spring 2017 ready-to-wear runways delivered an unexpected beauty 101 on how to work glossy eye makeup at all hours. Vogue Arabia noted glistening, wet-looking lids at Nina Ricci and Toga in a so-wearable array of colors. Paired with equally slick lips, dewy skin, and brushed-out brows, high-shine eyes also serve as a gorgeous way to get out of a beauty rut. To recreate the look, start by applying an eyeshadow primer such as Nars Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base to act as a smooth canvas and ensure that your makeup won’t budge throughout the day. Next, dust your eyeshadow of choice on top of your lids and across your lower lash line for definition. Using your fingertips, dab a clear gloss, such as Yves Saint Laurent Eye Gloss Smudger, over your eyeshadow for a wet, reflective effect to complete the look. To help you get started, we compiled 5 formulas designed specifically for the eyes to bump to the top of your shopping list.
