So, turns out the #reversecateye trend was just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to heavy, dark eye makeup for 2021. Part grunge, part uber-glam – if you’re in the mood to let out your inner dark side à la Kourtney K and Megan Fox this year (or if you’re just a big fan of a dramatic smokey eye), this one’s for you.
The party-season-ready eye makeup trends we’ll be wearing throughout December
It’s fair to say that our social lives have taken a bit of a hit over the past two years, and getting glammed-up has definitely not been top of the to-do list. And whilst we’ve loved the freedom of skinimalism, staying-in, and living makeup free – we’re more than ready for a change.
Yep, we’re calling it: glam is back for party season, and we’re going all out. We’re talking festive manis, bouncy blow dries, and of course, some killer makeup looks. This year, we’re loving oh-so-extra eye looks (after all, face masks are still a thing). From rich jewel tones and vivid brights, to buckets of glitter and gemstone adornments – more is most definitely more this year.
Read on for all the inspo you need to try them yourself (or show them to your makeup artist – we can’t all be pros, after all) – your Christmas party won’t know what hit it.
