So what exactly is bubble eyeliner and what do we need to know about it? Unlike most eyeliner styles, this eyeliner includes variation from the start of the lash line itself. Over a straight line of eyeliner on the upper eyelid, you create small semi-circular scallops to replicate bubbles.
The craze was started by makeup artist and YouTube star, Jenna Gonzales in a how-to video on her channel. Being a drastically different take on everyone’s favorite eyeliner, the video went viral and clocked over half a million views shortly after. The trend is a far cry from its sister trend bubble nails and is fortunately, much more feminine and lady-like. There’s no doubt in our mind that we’ll be seeing a lot more of the bubble eyeliner trend over social media!
If you’re wondering how to apply this eyeliner, here’s how to go about it.
Start by selecting a fine tipped eyeliner which will help you sketch the scallops to perfection. We’re picking up the Lakmé Absolute Shine Line whose precise tip and metallic shades will make for easy application and also take this trend up a notch. In Sparkling Olive, Shimmer Bronze and Liquid Gold, your peepers are sure to make quite an impact!
Start from your inner corner on your upper eyelid and begin to trace a line until the outer corner, all the while staying as close to the lash line as possible. Once the line is dry, begin from the inner corner and start sketching small semi-circles while keeping the eyeliner as the base. Continue to sketch the semi-circles until you’ve reached the outer corner of your eye.
