When there’s a brand new makeup trend on our radar, consider us ecstatic. And when it’s minimalist and simple to boot, you can expect us to do a little gig. While there are a multitude of eye makeup trends in the beauty sphere ranging from bizarre to subdued, it’s always thrilling to find one that’s in vogue which is easy to recreate.

The dot liner eye makeup trend is one such look. Not only does it exemplify the chicness of runway fashion, it’s also incredibly do-able. It was first spotted a few years ago on the Rochas and Anna Sui runways but never quite caught on back then. In 2017 however, it was through red carpet appearances and runway shows that it slowly and steadily began its rise to popularity.

makeup around the eye area

In simple terms, this makeup trend is exactly what its name suggests—a dot or dots of makeup around the eye area. Also known as eye dots, they can be in a rainbow of colours or variety of repetitions across the lash line or eye lid. One look at Hollywood celebrities like Cara Delevingne, Emma Roberts and Zoë Kravitz wearing the hi-fashion array of dots on their eyes is enough to give us serious makeup goals. The best part is it’s possible to pull off the look in 10 minutes for your next fancy dinner.

While the dot eyeliner makeup trend can be tried in many ways, we’re showing you how you can get the look in the simplest way possible.

Start by lining your upper lash line with the Lakmé Absolute Precision Liquid Liner and creating a wing at the outer corner.

Just beneath your lower lash line, use your pupil as a measure to create a dot at the centre below your lashes.

Finish off with two coats of mascara and get set to have all eyes on you!
