And for those who want to try out this look without having to turn on the facet, makeup artist Victor Anaya offered a simple resolution.
“The soft line effect has such a lived-in feel, the easiest way to achieve it is to start with a black gel liner,” the Director of Education and Artistry at Bobbi Brown Cosmetics North America exclusively told E! News. “Dip a small eyeliner brush into the pot. Next, apply directly in the lower water line and remove the brush and squeeze eyes together.”
As he put it, “This will give you the exact same look in seconds and stay on until you’re ready to take it off.”
Victor swears by Bobbi Brown’s Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner since it glides easily and is buildable.
He also noted the trend is worth trying for anyone who wants their eyes to stand out.
“It’s very minimal effort and adds this beautiful soft smokiness to the inner part of the eye—almost like a haze,” he said. “It frames the eye and makes the base of the lashes look fuller.”
