Glossy Eyes 101: How to achieve super shiny eye makeup

0

Few celebrities mirror today’s beauty trends quite like Hailey Bieber. The model and Rhode founder has a penchant for glazed donut skin, bronzed finishes and lips that make a statement. And yet, the one thing we can’t help but think about is the enviable bright eye she’s sported on various occasions for a head-turning touch of sparkle.

While a shiny, high-shine lid isn’t a new trend by chance, Bieber’s clothes remind us how fun and experimental the finish can be. Playing with textures, after all, is one of the best ways to change up your look for an editorial shot. Forget mattes and powdery reflections! Naturally, it also made its way to TikTok, with the hashtag #glossyeyelids garnering 8.3 million views. With its low-effort, high-impact wear, we can’t wait to take a page out of Bieber’s playbook and test out the look through the holiday season and beyond.
