If you’re active on Instagram or TikTok, chances are you’ve seen that crystal-studded makeup looks are taking over — for good reason. The addition of tiny crystals can turn just about any makeup look into something dramatic and eye-catching, so there’s no wonder why everyone seems to be doing it. To get some inspiration before putting together a crystal cat eye makeup look of your own, keep scrolling. Ahead, we’ve rounded up some of the most glamorous (and creative) crystal cat eye makeup looks.
How to Add Crystals to Your Cat Eye Makeup Look
Since working with crystals is different from wielding a liquid or pencil eyeliner, mastering a crystal eye look requires practice and patience. Aside from imparting a euphoric effect to your eye area, crystal eye looks allow for creativity and customization, so no stress if your final product doesn’t turn out the way you planned — two looks are the same.
Where to Apply Crystals on Your Eyelids
According to celebrity makeup artist and L’Oréal Paris expert Sir John, you should apply the crystals wherever your eye protrudes, or goes forward, the most. “Think about where the light hits your eyes and apply the crystals there,” he explains.
With that in mind, find the most glamorous crystal eye makeup looks we could find on Instagram, below.
Crystal Cat Eye Makeup Look Inspiration
1. Tons of Tiny Crystals
Anytime you’re creating an eye makeup look that you want to last, it’s absolutely vital to start the process with a primer. Not only can primer help even out skin for a smoother application, but it can also help your eye makeup last throughout the day, which is especially important when trying to prevent crystals from falling off. All you have to do is blend a tiny dab of primer onto each lid and let it dry before applying any shadow.
2. Single Crystal
A single crystal, when centered underneath your iris, lights up the rest of your look. Amp up the bright eye vibe by dusting a gold metallic shimmer eyeshadow (like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24Hr Eye Shadow in Eternal Sunshine) from your lash line to just past your crease with a fluffy eyeshadow brush. Using a fluffy brush, as opposed to a dense one, will help you create a shimmery wash of color, whereas denser brushes can sometimes overdo it.
