Dramatic black eyeliner
The black eyeliner has taken a new turn when it comes to eye makeup.

As per a Google consumer survey, almost 78% of us are unaware of what products to use before and after working out or exercising. It’s interesting to know that beauty brand like Clinique is working on adding an extremely high-performance skincare range that is called Clinique Fit. This product range targets skin concerns that are exercise specific, such as clogged pores or redness.
The glitter eye trend has definitely created a splash this year, especially on the runways. It isn’t the typical glitter eyeliner look, but accessorising your eyes with various gems, sequins and rhinestones. The trick to keep them in place is using eyelash glue. While you do need to be a little patient to achieve this look, it is worth the effort.
The portability of beauty technologies has made the advanced skincare a lot more accessible. This year, you will not only put those hair tools inside your weekend bag, but also micro-needle devices and light therapy masks too! One of the most popular devices amongst all is the derma roller. The micro-needling tool helps in treating acne spots, acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, acts as a reverse ageing process and also helps in getting rid of those stubborn blackheads and whiteheads.

Certainly, something to look out for if you want to experiment with your eye makeup game. To achieve this look, simply trace the outline of your desired wing and then carefully fill it in. You can also use an eyeshadow applicator with a sponge to imprint the round shape.
