What is the upside down eye makeup trend?

Where did we spot the trend?

Love the smokey eye or that thick liner on your eyes? It’s time to shake things up and turn it into a reverse—wear the smokey eyes on the lower lash line. You can either use a thick pencil or an eyeshadow to create this dramatic look.


How is it done?

Where did we spot the trend?

Get your hands on a pencil and eyeshadow for that much needed drama on the eyes. Start by lining the lower lash line. Next, rim below the lash line just a wee bit and then smudge out the pencil just a wee bit. Finally, use the same coloured eyeshadow and press it on the liner/pencil to darken the colour.

You can get a blue upside down eye makeup look using the Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Kajal, Sapphire Blue and the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette, Silver.

Lakmé Fashion Week! Coz c’mon there’s no better place to spot trend that the LFW runways. Who did it? Sanjay Garg’s opening show titled Cloud People had models wear dark upside down eye makeup—something that went beautiful with his couture.
