Invisible Floating Eyeliner Trend

You Don't Need to Be a Magician to Pull Off the Invisible Eyeliner Trend

The latest eye makeup trend is taking its cue from Harry Houdini, David Blaine, and the like. The so-called invisible or floating eyeliner trend utilizes negative space to create the illusion of a sharp eyeliner flick, resulting in a truly mesmerizing look.

Though everyone from makeup artists to enthusiasts has started to pick up the trend, it was likely started by UK-based artist Stacey McDonald, according to Allure. Though McDonald has shared videos demonstrating her process, you can attempt this look yourself by using the classic tape hack. Simply apply a small piece of tape diagonally to line up with the corner of your eyebrow, apply your eye makeup above the tape, and remove it to reveal that negative-space illusion.
