If you’re an avid beauty magazine reader, then you’ve most likely stumbled upon beauty trends that just don’t seem practical to wear out in the real world. (I’m looking at you, graphic eye liner.) Now, I’m not entirely knocking out-of-the-box beauty trends, but some are just better than others and look chic rather than sloppy or weird. One of those beauty trends is the glossy eyelid.
A runway-look favorite, glossy lids have been flaunted by both Beyonce and Kim Kardashian on several occasions. Glossy lids bring attention to the eyes in a way that’s different from other eye makeup looks. There’s something about a glossy lid that immediately gives off a fresh, youthful appearance. It also looks effortless in a way that can’t be compared with other eye shadow trends where a lack of blending can ruin the look or make you look like a hot mess.
