This Instagram Beauty Trend Takes Swatching to a Whole New Level

It's called #HandMakeup.

It kinda sounds like a Sailor Moon transformation sequence TBH, but #HandMakeup is the Instagram trend that has the online beauty community hooked. 

So you basically recreate a "plakado" eye makeup look on your hand.

Your first questions might be, "Why...?" But it's actually really practical! Think of it as swatching, but instead of trying on lipstick or eyeshadow shades, you're testing out possible eye makeup looks to realistically wear. You get to practice a bit of contouring, shading, lining, and your more advanced drawing skills if you really want  a lifelike iris.

Can you tell the difference? 

@fiammaalborghetti is the queen of #handmakeup on IG.

I guess it saves you a lot of makeup remover and eyelash glue, too?  

What do you guys think? Weird? Cool? Or, like us, are you thinking that the kilay with kanto is so last season? Comment!
