Instagram is the place where we see the weirdest but at the same time the most beautiful makeup trends. Lately, we reported about a lot of new and interesting makeup trends such as the terrarium eyes and the intricate winged eyeliner. The latest thing that got a lot of attention on Instagram is the fake tear trend. If you ever thought that tears are bad for your makeup, Instagram beauty gurus will prove you wrong.
Many makeup artists on Instagram decided to add this unexpected detail and we have to admit that it looks surprisingly good.
Makeup artists use lip gloss and face paint to create the fake tears. This trend is different from the glitter tear trend we had a chance to see earlier on Instagram. The fake tears that makeup artists add to their makeup appear unbelievably real.
The fake tear trend allows you to embrace your tears when you wear a full face of makeup. Some of us tend to get emotional after couple extra drinks at the club or at some family celebrations. Now you don’t have to spend half of the night in the bathroom to fix your makeup. Thanks to this trend you will feel beautiful and artistic in some way. Makeup like this isn’t really suitable for everyday wear. But if you ever get in a situation like this feel free to rock your real tear makeup.
The fake tear is super easy to recreate. One of the mediums that you can use to make a fake tear is a clear lip gloss. The clear lip gloss is the easiest way because most girls have one in their makeup collection. Makeup artists prefer to use water-activated face paint because the paint will dry and stay put. Lip glosses, on the other hand, spread all over your face very quickly and there is a great chance that you will mess up your makeup.
If you are not a professional makeup artist and you don’t own a water-activated face paint you can definitely try the trend with a clear lip gloss and snap a photo for your Instagram profile.
Despite the mess it creates it seems that most makeup artists decided to try the trend with a clear lip gloss. Also, there are some artists that used a setting spray to create the fake tears.
