The Glossy Eye Trend: Why And How
School, Life… None of it has been good to me , I am not sure if it is part of growing up but have had a lot of life changing things happen to me these past few months but am still here with the hope that tomorrow is definitely going to be better. I am not a motivational speaker, i honestly don’t believe any of the things they say but if you’re reading this I am using this opportunity to tell you, the same way i tell myself everyday, ”You’re not done yet, so don’t give up.”
Back to the real reason am writing this, the glossy eye trend has been around for a while now, it’s one of those trends that people don’t start to dig until after a while and i have to say like a lot of people i hated it at first, i wasn’t sure why i would want to put lip-gloss all over my eyelids. For like about three months when i was going through several life changing things, i basically stopped using makeup, it just never occurred to me to put makeup on my face, i was way too down and when i decided to start using makeup again, it didn’t feel right.
I was never a pro at this makeup thing and i feel like my face outgrew my old makeup routine or maybe i just didn’t know how to do it no more, it made me feel old, the whole using eye-shadow, cutting crease and all. I realized i needed to look for a new makeup routine that fit my face and did not make me look ten years older than i am, so i started looking through Instagram for makeup inspirations and I fell
in love with Ashley’s makeup routine, she always does the glossy eyeshadow thing and I fell in love with the way it looked on her.
FIRST ATTEMPT: I decided to try it and I hated it, it felt like glue on my eyelids, it wasn’t nice at all, it dried up and i looked like I got punched in the eye.
SECOND ATTEMPT: I took a few pictures, still felt like glue on my eyelids but the pictures came out nice, still dried up and people kept on asking what was wrong with my eyes. I used it few more times and got used to it.
NOW: I watched a few videos on the trend and realized the problem was the lip-gloss i was using, it was way to glossy and it dried up easily so I got a new one and Girl! this glossy eye thing is POPPING! How To:
- Apply your eye-shadow primer
- Apply any eye-shadow of your choice, I personally always go for a very warm color like deep brown, or wine.
- Apply your lip gloss with a brush
- Apply your mascara and you’re good to go.
