People tend to stay away from glossy shadows for fear that they will be as uncomfortable as wearing a sticky lip gloss on lids. However, today’s glossy shadows are anything but sticky. They produce sheer, glossy finishes without any tacky residue. What’s more, glossy shadows were one of the biggest beauty trends on the Spring 2017 runways. If the pros are playing around with them, you should be trying them out too.
- Shiny Red Ombre Eye
This eye is literally fire thanks to the yellow to red ombre color scheme. Then you have that thick flick and the glossy finish. What’s not to like?
- Glossy Green Eyes and Pink Lips
You don’t have to completely give up your matte finishes. Try pairing a glossy eye with a matte liquid lipstick.
- Copper Eyes and Red Lips
You can play around with the amount of gloss on your eyes. Start off with a dab in the center of a bold eye color and gradually build up from there.
- Sheer Green Eyes and Blue Mascara
A lot of glossy eye makeup looks forgo mascara entirely. However, this one has gone the other way and accented the sheer green shadow with a royal blue mascara.
- Wet-Look Eyes and Brow Glitter
Make a note of this look for your future festivals. The super glossy lids paired with the sparkly eyebrows is dazzling.
