3 Fall/Winter 2016 Eye Makeup Looks You Can DIY In 5 Minutes

Or less


We love experimenting with beauty trends, but incorporating them into our everyday lives isn’t always easy. Thankfully, not all beauty looks from the runway require us to sit in front of the mirror for hours — here are three cool yet simple runway trends you can probably ace in five minutes or less.

1. Inner-corner Sparkle

Glitter is key this season. For a subtle take on the trend that you can rock everyday, add a touch of glitter to your inner tear duct area, with a pencil liner or glitter pen in gold, silver or frosted white. It’s fun and helps brighten your eyes, no matter how much sleep you actually got the night before.

2. Morning After eyes

Think of Morning After eyes as the less dramatic, grungier version of the smokey-eye. Use a dark (black or brown) eyeliner pencil to line your top and bottom waterlines and smudge it out on to your eyelids — precision is not important here. You’ll end up with an equally sultry look without all the fuss.

3. Twiggy Lashes

There’s no better time than now to go heavy on your mascara. Open up your eyes, Twiggy-style, by applying multiple coats of mascara on both your top and bottom lashes. We bet this won’t even take you five minutes.
