Written by Sanya HamdaniMar 12, 2020

There is no dearth of trends when it comes to eye makeup looks. Right when you ace one eye look, five more pop up, and being the ardent makeup lover that you are, you just want to try them all. While some eye looks are easier to recreate, others require tips and tricks to simplify the process in order to get it right.

Take glossy lids for example. This oh-so-trendy eye look is stylish AF, but use the wrong products and you might end up looking a greasy mess. Follow these 3 easy steps to ace the glossy lip eyelid trend like a pro.

Step 01: Prime your lids

Start by applying a primer; it creates a smooth and even base and ensures your eye makeup stays put for a long time. This is extremely crucial when you’re creating something as tricky as glossy lids. Take a small amount of eye primer and dab it on your eyelid.

Step 02: Apply shimmer eyeshadow

The next step is to apply your eyeshadow; use a metallic or shimmer eyeshadow and avoid glitter at all cost. The finer the texture of the eyeshadow, the better the final look. You can choose any shade, however, keep in mind that the shade will pop and look darker once it becomes glossy. So, it’s best to start with a subtle colour first and then move on to bolder hues in your next attempt.

Step 03: Gloss it up

The last and the most exciting part - gloss it up! Pick a sheer lip gloss or a tinted lip balm such as the Vaseline Lip Therapy Color & Care Chapstick – Strawberry. Take some lip balm or gloss on your fingertip and dab a thin layer on your eyelids. Carry the gloss with you for touch-ups.
