How To Recreate the Kardashian-Approved Mermaid Tears Trend

When it comes to the latest beauty trends, the Kardashians are always ahead of everyone else.

If you are looking for fashion and beauty celebrity inspirations, the famous Kardashian-Jenner clan may be the ones you are searching for. When we talk about fashion, they are always on top. We can't deny that the popular family can slay any outfit they wear, even those we might think would look absurd on us. In terms of beauty, they are always on the lookout for the latest trends and seek to share them with us through their Instagram feed. Unless you have been living under a rock for quite some time now, you know that the clan owns two in-house makeup brands - KKW Beauty which was launched by Kim Kardashian in 2017 and Kylie Cosmetics which was unveiled by Kylie Jenner in 2015. The arrival of both beauty brands made it possible for women to closely follow the newest makeup trends.

The latest makeup trend popularized by the Kardashian-Jenner sisters is called "Mermaid Tears", which is basically strobing the inner eye corner with eyeshadow to make it look like the tears of a mermaid. While this eye area is often overlooked, highlighting this part can make the whole eye makeup look brighter. And guess what? It is the easiest makeup trend to recreate among all we have seen this year! Before we bring you the instructions on how to imitate this Kardashian-inspired beauty trend, please help yourself with some of their photos.

Step 3: Apply the color from the tear duct area upward to the crease. This application technique will create a beautiful ombre effect.

Step 4: After you applied the color, you must blend the harsh edges. To do that, take a clean eyeshadow blending brush and start blending on the outer corners.

Step 5: To make the colors pop, use a neutral shade on the rest of the eyelids. Complete the trendy eye look by applying eyeliner on the waterline.

Once you follow the guide above, you'll be able to create the mermaid tears eye makeup like a Kardashian. You'll never know, you could be their long-lost fashionable and beautiful sister!
