The Insta makeup community has a new obsession — inner corner eye makeup! From using statement-making bold neon colours to packing on shimmer in the inner corner to make ‘em peepers pop — the inner eye is where all the creativity is sprung at the moment.
Aside from the fact that it's an incredibly easy makeup look to copy, it's a trend that brightens and wakes up the entire face. And while we love the good ‘ol cut crease and smokey eyes, taking all the action to the inner corner of your eyes seems like an adventurous thing to do. Wanna hop on the bandwagon? Here are 5 trendy looks to help you get started.
Use embellishments, stickers and rhinestones to add some bling to the inner corner of your eyes. We love how the starry stickies complement the blue eyeshadow in this look. Make sure to use gentle makeup adhesives when you place embellishments close to the eye area.

There are more ways to use your pigmented and vibrant eyeshadows than to just swipe them across the lid and be done with it. This glamorous look from Kylie Jenner uses bright yellow to add a pop of colour to the otherwise muted look

Pack your glittery gold eyeshadow on the inner eye area for a look that’s OTT, yet glam. Draw a cat-eye, swipe on a glossy nude lipstick and keep the rest of your face muted to let your eyes do all the talking.

A touch of liquid
Got a vibrant eyeshadow palette that you haven’t dared to use yet? Well, take inspo from Santoshi Shetty and bring those damn palettes to play. Use a vibrant shade to highlight the inner corner of your eyes and don’t just stop there — play up the rest of your eye makeup look with bold, contrasting colour for a playful vibe.

Instead of just lightly dabbing highlighter in the inner corner of your eyes, use loose glitter to make ‘em peepers pop instead. Match with a glittery eyeshadow and you’ll have just bling you need to complement a stylish ensemble.
