Glossy eyelids have started a unique and new trend that people want to know more about. Not just that it is suitable for party-wear but its different variations can also be worn on a daily basis. Colored eyeliners and metallic eye looks have had their fair share of popularity but it’s time for them to take a side and make room for the glossy eye makeup.  
One of the confusions surrounding glossy eye makeup is that whether it is doable at home or not. Since the look has been popularized by famous celebrities and an ample number of video tutorials, people now want to know more and that’s where we come in.
How to Apply Glossy Eye Makeup:
We will break it down in a few simple steps for our so they too can get the glamorous look within a short amount of time to become the life of the party.
Step # 1:
The first step is the ye’ old primer applications. Surely almost all our readers know what that means. By applying the primer right, you are laying the foundation for what is to follow. This is why you need to be careful and precise when it comes to applying primers, especially in the case of cream eye shadow and eye gloss as they can transform and don’t set well easily. In case you don’t have a primer available, using a little bit of concealer or foundation will do the trick.
Step # 2:
The next step is a bit tricky. This involves applying eye-shadow which is available in a huge variety. This is where the real confusion arises from. But we will simplify it so you can get perfect glossy eye shadow. You want to go extra shiny, so opt for an eye shadow that has a shimmer finish; we suggest gel-based iridescent shadow.
But in case you prefer powder shadow, the metallic finish can also play well for getting a glossy look.  We advise that you use a lighter shade of shadow as the application of gloss will make the shade appear darker afterwards. So go for a lighter shade and let the gloss handle the rest.
Step # 3:
The last step is the application of the gloss. There are a number of eye gloss brands available so we leave it up to you to take your pick. Anyone would do. But in case you don’t have any eye gloss at hand, clear lip gloss that is safe for eyes can also do the trick.
Apply the eye gloss using a dense eye shadow brush over the eye shadow. This will deliver a wet glossy look to your eyes. Just be sure to apply it evenly, also try not to apply too much or you will regret it later. You can add a cherry on the top by adding a little bit of volumizing mascara and you are all set.
Having a glossy eye look is not as difficult as you think. Now you don’t have to go to a beauty salon every time you want to have that perfect glossy eye-shadow makeup look.

So I decided to use the products I pictured in my first photo (minus my highlight shade and lipstick) I used the #Ace Beaute - Nostalgia Palette[products]#[FiveStars] for my entire eye look. I definitely enjoyed these products. My only advice is to shake the UOMA BEAUTY - Say What?! Foundation before use (because it can come out watery) but the coverage is absolutely flawless. I was shocked with the consistency the coverage I got. What’s your favorite black owned brands? (I do not own right to the song)
Double Your Lash Length With Sky High Mascara!

I bought this mascara after seeing a post about it on Facebook. I love trying out new mascaras but rarely do I find one that I will use regularly like my beloved tarte - Maneater Mascara However this stuff is good. MAYBELLINE - Lash Sensational Sky High Waterproof Mascara It gave my lashes so much volume & length they literally doubled in size! My lashes are already pretty long to begin with but this made them look amazing. The photo is after applying only one coat so I can only imagine how good they will look after two or three coats! It also didn’t clump up my lashes at all. I applied it really quickly & lazily too because I was in a rush to get ready & I was still amazed! I honestly think this is going to be my new daily mascara. It is waterproof but not the annoying kind that leaves your eyes completely black when you go to take it off. It came off really easily with my POND'S - Facial Moisturizers Dry Skin Cream which is what I’ve always used to remove my eye makeup, since I was a kid! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick

Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩 “buh-koo-chee-all” HERBIVORE - Bakuchiol Anti-Aging Serum I’ve already become a diehard Herbivore lover. So to receive this beauty was super exciting. When I started my acne journey on Cherie I was (and still am) a Differin Acne Gel stan. This was my choice of retinol and I wanted it strong to treat acne and boost my cellular turnover. Now that my acne is currently under control and it’s getting hot again, I definitely want something smooth and gentle. Bakuchiol is a gentler alternative to the very popular ingredient retinol. So essentially you’ll get overall youthful results for your skin. I haven’t tested this on my acne theory yet, but overall my face has been smooth and irritation free. This serum does not have a smell which I love for products of this caliber. I also love that it’s light and not drying at all. I use this at night and since i have a tolerance to retinol I use it every night. I haven’t been using it long enough to see results (about 12 weeks) but I definitely can’t wait to finish this. Have you tried Bakuchiol?
DISAPPOINTED BY THESE 100% NATURAL PRODUCTS 😩
DISAPPOINTED BY THESE 100% NATURAL PRODUCTS 😩
I was so excited to try these out because I love moisturizers & I am always in search of a good one! These looked & sounded very promising! They’re from a woman owned company, completely natural, vegan, & cruelty free! However, I was quite disappointed. EARTH HARBOR - MERMAID MILK Nutrient Glow Moisturizer This moisturizer claims to give you a glow right away & it contains spirulina + matcha. I was excited about the matcha because it has so many amazing benefits for skin. It has a very whipped consistency which I like. However it always contains essential oils that were strong, although not toooo strong for my liking. But I’m really just not a fan of essential oils in my face creams. The moisturizer did make my skin appear a little brighter but the cream just sat on my face. All day long I could touch my face & still feel the cream sitting there! I hate that feeling! It also almost gave me a greasy appearance after a while? Not a fan. EARTH HARBOR - SIREN SILK Multi-Tasking Hydration Creme This one was absolutely awful. If I could give it 0 stars I would. It says to use it at night time & the apply it at least 5 minutes before bed so it can absorb on your face & not your pillow. It contains Sea Retinol + other Superherbs which normally make me love a product! But that just wasn’t enough here. First, when I put it on my face my eyes started to actually burn & I felt suffocated from the scent. It was THAT strong. Guys, I’m not being dramatic at all. The smell like attacked me it was crazy! I have never had something like that happen with a face cream! I couldn’t believe how strong the fragrance was. & to top it off, it wasn’t even a pretty smell. My husband described it as smelling like floor cleaner. But I powered through. The longer I had it on, the more “used” to the smell I got. So, I wore it overnight. But then I woke up even more upset with it! I had pilling all over my face. It almost looked like my face was peeling but it wasn’t, it was jus the cream. One thing I cannot stand about a moisturizer is pulling. That’s enough for me to throw it out! It also didn’t really even moisturize my face that well! All in all, I hated this experience. But if you want, you should try them out for yourself, don’t let my experience deter you from trying something new! I however, will be sticking with my Youth To The People Dream Mask & Superfood Whipped Moisturizer! Love those two!!
