Instagram brought us the rise of the VSCO girl — you might have seen her on your timeline as the girl with the carefree vibes, fluffy scrunchies, and fresh and dewy makeup look. Now thanks to TikTok, there's a new girl in town and she's bringing us a whole new aesthetic. Introducing the E-girl — VSCO Girl’s equally trendy but edgier cousin. Known and loved for her emo and punk rocker vibes with a playful twist, you can likely find her wearing a statement makeup look consisting of a lot of blush, big doe-eyes and fun touches like hearts painted beneath her 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. 


What Is E-Girl Makeup? 

E-Girl makeup can differ depending on your own personal aesthetic, but some of the common staples are pink eyeshadow and a dramatic winged eyeliner. And then instead of focusing blush on the apples of their cheeks, E-girls bring it all the way across their cheekbones and even apply it on the bridge of the nose to create a super flushed look. You’ll also usually find E-girls wearing small minimalist designs (stars, hearts and dots are super popular) beneath the eyes. To complete the look, many apply pink lipstick or pink lip gloss.
