Cosmetic Corner: Glossy and Glam

This spring, gloss isn’t just for lips, it’s become the hottest new eye trend taking over our social feeds. While this look can be intimidating, we’ve made a super simple guide to achieving the look with as little as two products. Check out our recommendations below:

Step 1: The Eyeshadow

Pack your look with pigment and start with eyeshadow. While you can use any form of eyeshadow, cream or liquid formulas will give you a glossier, wetter look. If you’re dying to try out the look with your favorite powder shadow, you’ll just have to add a bit more gloss to the mix in step 2. You won’t need to use any special tricks to apply your shadow – just layer it on your lids like normal. Our favorite trick: gently press metallic shadows onto your lid with your ring finger. This will give you the maximum color payoff! Just be sure to use your ring finger. It’s your weakest finger, and you don’t want to damage the sensitive skin around your eyes with too much force.

Step 2: The Gloss

Once you’ve applied your shadow, it’s time to get glossy. You can use any lip balm or lip gloss you have on hand, or opt for a face or eye gloss for a more dramatic effect. One thing to beware of with this look: it can smudge and smear easily. Avoid applying your balm or gloss to the crease of your eyelid to keep your face looking fresh all day.
