This new beauty trend is what we’d imagine unicorn tears to look like. Making its debut on the runways of Saint Laurent and Burberry earlier last month, the glitter tears trend is making waves on Instagram. Here are some ideas on how you can achieve the look.

Go for a dramatic look with eye shadow and glitter…

How to get the look:

NYX Glitter Primer, S$10
The NYX Glitter Primer helps glitter adhere better.
  • Use an adhesive for the glitter. Try the NYX Glitter Primer (S$10) so that the sparkle stays put.
  • Although they’re meant to look like tears, try not to go too near the eyes to prevent irritation.
  • If glitter tears look too theatrical to you, try using glitter eyeliner on your lower lash line for a start.
Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner
Use the Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner on your lower lashes for a more subtle look.
