Looking for something bold-yet-wearable to shake up your beauty routine? Meet our new obsession for nighttime parties: high gloss eye makeup. The look has a gorgeous, old Hollywood feel and can be applied using products you probably already have in your medicine cabinet. Here, beauty guru Joey Maalouf demonstrates how to achieve two different versions of the trend on Team Zoe staffer, Kendall Cohan.
High Gloss Eye Makeup
Glossy Eye Makeup: Dark And Smoky
For a new take on smoky eye makeup add glossy shine to dark eye shadow and definition to brows while leaving the rest of the face fresh and ultra-hydrated.
When using dark colors and glossy textures on eyelids, build the look up gradually. This will help you control the amount of color and shine, while allowing each layer to properly set for all-night wear.
Style It With
Glossy Eye Makeup: Light And Luminous
For a softer, more feminine take on high gloss eyes, swipe a sheer silver shadow over lids, from lash line to the bottom of brows. Finish the look with dewy skin and major black lashes.
Rely less on petroleum jelly to create shine by using an already-glossy eye makeup product on lids, like this cream shadow pot from MAC. For all-over shimmer, apply a bit of the silver shadow to cheekbones as well.
