What is the angel eye trend?

The angel eye trend is a growing makeup trend that was inspired by the ethereal look of angels. This trend involves using a light frosty white eyeshadow across the lid. The white shade in focus creates an angelic, ethereal look and brings a fresh, subtle look to the wearer. To get the perfect angel eye look, make sure to use light and airy eyeshadows that are easy to blend out, rather than heavy or opaque eyeshadows. This look is suitable for all eye shapes and sizes, and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

Origins of the trend

The angel eye makeup trend has been gaining steam lately, with more and more people on social media embracing the look. Celebrities like Dua Lipa have also been spotted sporting this new trend. The style originated in Korea and Japan, but is now being embraced globally. The look itself is quite simple; it involves a light frosty white eyeshadow across the lid, blended around the edges to create a soft, ethereal effect. This look focuses on the white eyeshadow rather than any other colors and is a fresh, modern take on a classic look. The trend has been growing in popularity due to its simplicity, ease of application, and subtle elegance. The angel eye look is perfect for those who are looking for an edgy yet timeless style.

As the trend continues to gain popularity, more variations are being created to include different shades and techniques. Whether it’s done with a full-on eye look or just an accent color, angel eyes are a beautiful way to enhance your look this year.

How to recreate the look

The angel eye makeup trend is a stunning yet simple look that can be easily recreated. It all starts with an eye primer such as our Eyelights primer to create an even canvas and make sure the color is bright and opaque. Then, choose a white eyeshadow in either a frosty or matte finish. Pack the eyeshadow onto the lid using a dense brush, then use lighter neutral shades to blend the edges and soften the look. Finally, add some mascara to your lashes, and you’re ready to rock this look!

Products to use

The key to achieving this look is to choose the right product. Start with a primer like Eyelights Primer in Spotlight to help ensure that your eye shadow lasts all day. Then, select a light white shade. If you’re looking for a shimmery effect, opt for shades like Mother of Pearl, Sugar, or Ice. For a matte finish, White Out is the way to go. If you’re feeling more adventurous, try a loose shadow like Star Shimmer.

Variations on the look

For those looking to add some variety to the angel eyes trend, there are plenty of ways to customize the look. To give it a bit more sparkle, try adding some glitter to the white lid and blending it out with a fluffy brush. This will add depth and dimension to the eye. For a more dramatic look, pair the white eyeshadow with a dark brown or black color around the crease and outer corners of the eye. You can also use colorful eyeliner on the waterline for added vibrancy. If you want to take the look up a notch, opt for a cat-eye shape with a white wing and a white base.
