Glossy eyes are all fun and games until you blink and it gets smudged. If you’ve always wanted to try the glossy eye makeup trend, but aren’t exactly sure how to keep things from getting messy, we’ve got at makeup tutorial that’s worth trying. Inspired by this look created by @beautybypeach, this glossy inner corner eye is both beginner-friendly and a fun way to experiment with texture and pops of color. With the help of makeup artist Tyra Janea we’re breaking down exactly how to get this look with a step-by-step tutorial.
  • STEP 1:

    Prime the Eyes

    First, start by priming your eyes using a full-coverage concealer, like the Dermablend Cover Care Concealer. This step will help make your eyeshadow last longer and look more pigmented.

  • STEP 2:

    Apply Color to Your Inner Corner

    Next, using the Urban Decay Naked Ultraviolet Palette, you’re going to apply the purple shade Warning in the inner corner and blend it out using a fluffy eyeshadow brush until it reaches the middle of your eyelid. You’re also going to apply that same shadow on the outer corner of your eye along your upper lash line to create a small wing. 

  • STEP 3:

    Apply More Shadow

    Apply Lucid from the same palette, which is an iridescent seafoam green shade with purple flecks, on the middle of your eyelid.

  • STEP 4:

    Add Your Gloss

    Finish off the eye by applying a clear gloss on top of the shade Lucid. For this look, Tyra used the Maybelline New York Lip Lifter Gloss in Pearl. By focusing the gloss on the center of the eye, you get the cool shiny effect without having to worry about the inner corner smudging.
