Channel Your Inner E-Girl with These Looks from InstagramMarch 17, 2021
The E-girl look, a term popularized on TikTok, is all about emo and punk rocker vibes with a playful twist. The style typically involves a statement makeup look consisting of a lot of blush, big doe eyes and fun touches like hearts painted beneath the eyes. Whether it’s on TikTok or IRL, the rise of E-girls (and boys) is undeniable, so if you want to get in on the trend, find out how to recreate the signature makeup look, ahead.
Rosy and Flushed
Instead of focusing blush on the apples of their cheeks, E-girls typically bring it all the way across their cheekbones and even apply it on the bridge of the nose to create a super flushed look, as seen here by @aphitenza. She tops off her rosy cheeks with faux freckles, which can be drawn on with an eyeliner like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Super Slim Long-Lasting Liquid Eyeliner in brown.
Out of This World
In this edgy look by @alyciamarie, we love how the purple highlighter (try the NYX Professional Makeup Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder in Lavender Steel) acts as a base for the sea of small star, heart and dot designs.
Punk Rock Vibes
E-Girl makeup can differ depending on your own personal aesthetic, but the most common staple is dramatic winged eyeliner. In this look, @rei.lilith created intricate, geometric eyeliner designs both above and below her eyes complete with gemstone accents.
Heart EyesFor an unexpected and edgy look, @thecemrek applied white eyeliner, on her waterline and vertically above and below the center of her eyes for a twinkling effect that contrasts the glassy black lip.
