Glossy eyes are one of those trends you see on runway models and think, It looks great but it's not wearable. The thing is, a glossy eye is actually one of the easiest eye looks to do because you don't have to be particularly neat. A great glossy eye is one that looks a bit lived-in, which means you don't need to be on high alert for touch-ups throughout the day. It's also one of the coolest eye looks around—trust us. Here, makeup artist Zoe Taylor shows you how to combine two big S/S 18 makeup trends (petrol-hued lids and glossy eyes) for one cool-girl eye look that really does work IRL.
