Now Trending: Color-Contoured Lashes

It's actually really pretty

Updated 05/15/17

When adventure calls and we feel inclined to change up our beauty look, we typically opt for a bold new lip color or switch up our everyday eyeliner look for something a bit more time-consuming. But the latest makeup trend to sweep Pinterest may have you rethinking your approach. Low-effort but high-impact, this simple—yet statement-making—switch-up to your mascara strategy has the ability to instantly make your eyes pop. Interest piqued? Color-contoured lashes is Pinterest's favorite new makeup trend—and it might become yours too.

A short video collaboration between Harper's Bazaar and L'Oréal Paris breaks down the easy step-by-step to achieving the statement look. After a couple swipes of primer to the ends of curled lashes, immediately apply blue mascara just to the tips. Comb from the root to the tips to remove excess mascara, then finish off the bottom lashes with a swipe of black, and you're good to go. The result is an enchanting ombré effect that gives a subtle yet impactful pop that opens the eyes and gives a playful touch of unexpected color.

For the full demonstration, check out the video below.
