It seems that the makeup world is obsessing over the glossed up look recently. From sleek ponytails and dewy skin to high-shine lips, now we see the rise of glossy lids. While it’s not an entirely new trend per se, the glossy lids are easily making its way back into the mainstream feigning a natural shine for your peepers. This naturally enlivens your eyes as it reflects natural light sans the artificial and powdery finish that eyeshadows bring.
To cop the look, line your eyes first then swipe a coat of clear gloss across your peepers from the lash line to the brow. We recommend Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant. Without sacrificing its high-shine finish, this product won’t give you a sticky feeling. But if you want a bit of color, opt for MAC's Studio Eye Gloss in Money Honey. Apply mascara and finish off your look with some colored gloss on your lips.

If you don’t want to splurge on a trend you're still hesitant to try, we suggest you experiment first with a little dab of petroleum jelly on your lids to test it out. Just don’t forget to put your hair up or else you’ll end up with hair strands stuck on your face.
