We’ve mastered the bedazzled eyebrow, done our fair share of rhinestone eye makeup looks and executed graphic glitter eyeliner. What’s the next sparkly and shiny undertaking for team Makeup.com? A sequin-embellished eye look, of course. The glitzy look is all over Instagram and obviously we’re obsessed. Here, we’re rounding up our fave takes on the trend. 

Rainbow Eyes 

On days when we’re feeling a tad indecisive (read: always), we’ll be taking inspo from this multi-colored sequin eye look from Buro Malaysia. Who says you have to commit to just one sequin color anyways? Bring on the blues, greens, purples and everything in between because we are living for this rainbow look. 


All Black Everything

If you're in the mood for some monochromatic drama, look no further than this intense black look by Margarita Spatola. This cut crease is major, you guys. Just outline the area you want to fill with sequins using your eyeliner and then glue away. 


Starry Vibes

We’re simply obsessed with this starry sky-inspired eyeshadow. Soda On My Lips uses a creamy, light blue eyeshadow and star-shaped sequins to create the most whimsical eye look. If you need us, we’ll be recreating this STAT.

Gold Star 

Instagrammer Tory combined all our favorite things into one amazing eye makeup look. Glossy lid? Glitter? Sequins? Check, check and check. Plus, the diffused pink shadow gives the graphic look a flirty vibe. 


A Wild, Wild Wing

If you never go a day without a wing, this one’s for you. Switch up your status quo like Kayleigh Golding by swapping out your classic black pencil for some sequins. We’re here for the holographic take, but feel free to use any color.

A Sparkly Statement 

Want to give your copper eye a sparkly upgrade? Glitter-ize your wing with sequins just like Beauty Vain. We love how she mixed up the shapes and sizes for a flirty look.
