Glossy lids = least appropriate eye makeup look ever for a windstorm and/or for standing in front of Beyoncé-level stage turbines.
Don’t do it, girl!!
I wore one of these glossy Milk Makeup Eye Vinyls on a really windy day when I had my hair in a ponytail and thought I wouldn’t have to deal with the whole hair-sticking-to-my-eye-gloss thing, but those strands… They’ll find a way. Trust me on this.
Buuut, even with the drama that always accompanies glossy lids, gosh, there’s still something about ’em.
Yeah, I know — the stickiness, the creasing, and how they never stay exactly where you want them, but I go ga-ga for gleaming lids. I can’t help it.
I’ve been lovin’ Milk’s Eye Vinyls lately. They’re $20 each and come in four colors that start out SUPER shiny and reflective but lose a little of their high-wattage shine over the course of a couple hours. Overall, they stay wearable for about four hours before I feel the need to reapply.
They’re a little sticky but not too terribly heavy or thick. I think they’re very comfy.
So far I’ve worn the beige shade, which is basically clear on my lids, and the black one.
The beige one is a breeze to work with, but the black one takes a tad more effort, because it’s darker and slightly more pigmented.
Basically, just pat them on your lids with a finger. I don’t even use a primer or eyeshadow under them because they’ll just eat up whatever you put under them anyway.
Keep it simple! A few taps of gloss on your lids, lots of mascara and a bright lip. Done.
