When it comes to our eyeshadow game, it’s so easy to get stuck in the same routine; base, shade, and shimmer… Sound familiar? But this celeb-approved hack is so quick and easy and it’ll instantly update your beauty look with a pop of color and a little edge. It literally is just that; a pop of color in the indent of your eye, and then a relatively simple, sometimes even bare eye.

How to Get the Look:

Although the look is relatively simple to achieve, there are some key things that will help you nail the look:

The eyeshadow: Opt for a bright eyeshadow that’s super pigmented, so it really stands out. Prep the lid first with a flesh-colored concealer or eyeshadow primer to make the colorful hue as vibrant as possible. Keep the rest of your lid bare or opt for a simple eyeshadow in a complementary tone. The vibrant hues in our Electric Obsessions Palette, $27, are perfect and yellow is so on-trend right now.

The technique: Make sure you pack on the eyeshadow using a dense brush, then lightly press the shadow into the corner of your eye. This will help create a more intense pigment payoff. Also, don’t forget the lower lash line as this will bring the look together. To add some drama, finish with winged lined (find out which type of wing flatters your eye shape, here) and add some killer lashes. For a softer finish, buff the eyeshadow out towards the center of the lid, like Gigi below.

Here’s some inspo on how to work this eyeshadow trend:
