Save for our obsession with prismatic highlighters, matte has been where it’s at in beauty for what seems like for-ev-er. Matte liquid lipsticks, matte bronzers and, of course, matte eyeshadows fill up our makeup bags. But a girl likes options. And makeup artists seem to agree, which is why the glossy look was a key beauty trend on the Spring 2017 and Fall 2017 runways.
It wasn’t just lips that got the glossy treatment, eyes did, too. Glossy eyelids appeared on the runways at Emporio Armani, Stella Jean and Altuzarra, to name a few. While you may be tempted to write the trend off as being way too sticky, the newest beauty products have come a long way from their goopy, petroleum jelly origins.
If you’re not sure about fully investing in the glossy eye trend yet, there are many multipurpose luminizing products that work on the face as well as eyes. Though we’re fully convinced that once you give the glossy eye look a try, you’ll be hooked. So, put down that matte eyeshadow, grab one of these shiny products, and get ready to try out a gorgeous glossy eye.
