3 Easy Ways to Wear the Shimmer Trend You’ve Seen on Runways This Season

Glitter eye makeup is one of those long-loved trends that just made a comeback at runways around the world this year. Most people associate shimmer eye makeup as a look reserved for weddings or parties. But with some amount of moderation, the sparkling trend can be a part of your day-to-day makeup routine. Before you cringe at the thought of glitter at a 9 to 5, we assure you, compliments are a guarantee.

The cardinal rule to look sophisticated while you use anything that has glitter or shimmer is moderation. Leave your infatuation with glitter for music festivals, and opt for a subtle stroke of sparkle instead.

Here are 3 easy ways you can use metallic eyeliner on a normal day:

 

1. EYELINER

Line your eyes with the Lakmé Absolute Kohl Pencil and use the Lakmé Absolute Shine Line to over-line the black eyeliner. Draw a thin line if you want to keep it subtle. You can play with different eyeliner styles depending on the occasion.

2. ALONG THE LOWER LASH LINE

A makeup artist’s trick to mask tired eyes is lots of mascara and a hint of color. If you use Kohl on your waterline, a quick swipe of shimmer eyeliner under your lower lashline will give your eyes a fresh, youthful glow. Even if you leave home bare-faced with just eyeliner, this distinctive look ought to make some heads turn.

Use the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette in Silver to swipe on some shimmer under your eyes.

3. ALONG THE INNER CORNERS

Adding a little shimmer to your inner corner will make your eyes look brighter and more awake. Apply your eyeliner and kohl as you normally would. Now trace the inner corner (the tear duct area) of your eyes with a shimmery eyeliner and that’s it!

You can use a liquid eyeliner to get the look, try Lakmé Absolute Shine Line Eye Liner in Shimmer Bronze
