Backwards Eyeliner Is The New Beauty Trend That’ll Mess With Your Brain

Reverse liner is an optical illusion of the beauty world (@dahliacreates & @froggistyle73)

From hair nails to squiggle brows, it seems not a week passes without another weird beauty trend cropping up on Instagram. True to form, backwards eyeliner is now here to confuse us even more.


At first glance, these eye make-up snaps look like nothing out of the ordinary. But while we struggle to even get a conventional cat eye right, make-up pros of the internet are now putting us to shame by slaying winged eyeliner in the complete opposite direction.

From traditional inky black flicks to glittering gold wings, and neutral lids to cut creases, these budding MUAs have definitely not held back with their eye make-up designs. While we can’t see many people rocking this trend to lectures every morning, it’s yet another great showcase of the online beauty community’s talent and creativity.

This doesn’t look like an easy one to get right either, so if you are going to attempt it, prepare yourself for the inevitable by keeping some cotton buds and cleansing wipes nearby.

So, there’s only one more thing to ask: will you be trying the reverse eyeliner trend?
