How to Try the Crystal Eyeliner Beauty Trend

01/04/2022

The rise in popularity of the HBO series Euphoria completely changed the makeup universe. The HBO show has popularized several trends in makeup, beauty, and beyond. From the use of bright and colorful colors to eyes, crystals makeup looks are the ones that are in a special place in the beauty world.

Rhinestones and pearls, added to colorful eyeshadow or glitter eyeliner, bring an ethereal element and elevation of drama to the look; overall creating a more unique result. The idea is to play with the types of crystals—sizes, models, colors—and choose different regions around your eyes and face to apply them. You can create an outline, drop appearance, shadow effect, among other many other options when utilizing rhinestones. Creativity should be at your disposal when incorporating crystals.

In application, professional makeup artists recommend that before placing the stones on the face, a little gloss is used—yes, lip gloss—in the chosen area so that the crystals have adequate adhesion to stay in place. It is also very important that the material of the crystals is specific for use on the face. This prevents irritation and allergies in the applied regions.

Want to try out the trend and feel as though you go to Euphoria high school? Check out three types of applications for the outlined looks:

Traditional Crystal Outline

For a traditional outlined look with crystals, choose a colorful eyeshadow and apply it all over the eyelid, following the shape of your eye. Then choose the crystals you want to apply. You can line up to the crease of the eye, extending it outward, or even cover the look with stones.

Outlined Drops

This one is for classic makeup lovers, who want a more discreet and chic look. Apply a nude eyeshadow with a little shimmer on the lid. When choosing crystals, opt for transparent stones to use in the corner of the eyes. Place along the entire length and in the outer and inner corners of the eyes. For added effect, use stones in different sizes, ensuring a “cleaner” look.

Crystal Outline with Color Contrast

Tap into your creativity even more by mixing colors. When using eyeshadow and crystals, opt for contrast. Look for matching colors and inspirations. A quick Google search on the “color theory” can help you when choosing contrasting colors for your makeup. As for the crystals, use medium stones on the eyelids and on the outer and inner corners, pulling it out in a cat-eye.
