Sparkling eye make-up has been the one beauty trend dominating this year's catwalks. At Valentino's Spring 2019 show, make-up artist Pat McGrath single-handedly applied Swarovski crystals to models' eyelids while at Halpern, Isamaya Ffrench places layers of glitter onto models' eyelids before framing with semi-circles of black liner. Making the look actually wearable, Versace models wore wings of coloured liner with a metallic finish.
Unlike most high fashion beauty looks, the sparkling eye is one that is easily recreated at home, thanks to liquid eyeshadow. Compared to powder eyeshadow, liquid formulations are foolproof - simply swipe, blend and go. In regards to formula and finish, liquid shadows are far superior for pigmentation and lasting power. Liquid eyeshadows also tend to come in small, easy-to-carry-around tubes that soon become a makeup bag staple. No matter what your day has in store for - whether that be waking up late or some spontaneous post-work plans - liquid eyeshadow is your answer.
While you may need to take a trip to your local arts and crafts store for a Pat McGrath studded inspired look, below are the best liquid eyeshadows beauty counters have to offer.
