Trying out beauty trends: Fake tears

Fake tears, really?

I first read about fake tears as a runway trend, then it blew up as a different version on instagram sometime last year (I’m late, I know!). Instead of just using color to create tears, people were using clear gloss to mimic tears rolling down your face. I did not have a clear lip gloss so I opted for just trying out the colored version. It also didn’t sound too tempting to put some sticky liquid so close to my eyeballs. I’m very paranoid when it comes to what I put near my eyes.

What I used to do this was the Steve Laurant liquid liner in Black, and a couple of shades from the I ❀ MakeUp Death By Chocolate Palette (Love you to death & Tease Me). I used a dark purple paired with silver acting as a highlight. The highlight part didn’t pick up too well on camera, it just looked like solid silver but it was a lot prettier in real life! It shifted really nicely between purple and silver.



I think it looks good both as just an outline, and filled in. It’s not an every day kind of look though, but I would definitely use something like this for costume make up. I know a lot of people like adding things like this when doing a Goth kind of costume make up. I also remember seeing make up like this when finding ‘alternative’ looks for my Sims 2 & 3 characters.

If I did this again, I think I might have opted for black and silver, or black and gold.. or maybe something blue? I’m not sure. I think I also would have gone over the outlines with liquid eyeliner again to keep it looking kinda cartoon-ish. It could also have been cool to pair this with a cel-shade or pop art look.

Have you ever tried anything like this? Or what do you think of a ‘trend’ like this in general? Something for you? It’s not really for me but I can respect people’s creativity.

    This is a random trend but good on you for retrying it! Like you say, it would be good as costume make up rather than say to day.



    I absolutely love these posts, so fun to see you trying out different beauty trends! This is such a crazy trend but I think you’re pulling it off – definitely not an everyday look but would look so cool with a costume x



    I’ve seen this trend everywhere (and watched Simply Nailogical do it), you’ve done such a good job! Can’t wait to see you slay it for a Halloween tutorial or something like that xx



    I love your beauty trend posts!
    I agree this look wouldn’t be for every day, but it would look great w/ a costume!



    I love that you are so brave with trying stuff out, you have done a great job! I saw this trend everywhere too, I like the cartoon type look, it always looked so good. x



    This is such a fun idea!! I think the black and gold would look cool! I’d even add in some red for dramatic effect πŸ™‚ xxx
