The Latest Beauty Trend for Evening (and Bonus: It Works for All Ages)

The Grammys and the Tony Awards were teeming with A-list celebrities and we noticed a recurring beauty look: undereye sparkle. Most of the time we’re used to seeing and applying sparkle above the eye, but this spring all the sparkle was near the lower lash. We loved the look! We especially love that it doesn’t accentuate any above-the-eye wrinkles, thus allowing the look to be worn at any age.

Here were some of our favorite looks.

Kerry Washington

We love the subtle sparkle on the lower waterline. A waterproof pencil with a sparkle in it would work perfectly for this look.


Cynthia Erivo

We love how the silver sparkle liner matches her silver shadow and platinum hair.


Indya Moore

Taking the look to the next level, Indya Moore swept her sparkle under her winged liner, which she curled up at the ends in a bold look.


Hailee Steinfeld

Her stunning emerald shimmer was all over the eyes and brought under her eye as well.


Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga softens her black liner with silver shimmer for a dramatic yet ethereal look.


Ready to try?

We suggest Smashbox’s Always Sharp 3D eyeliners and Stila’s Glitter and Glow Eyeshadows to get this look. Need help? Come in to Bellacara. Our artists are always happy to assist.

  • The latest from Angela
I have been a beauty junkie for what seems like forever, but before I did anything about it, I went to law school. (Yes, my life is a little like the reverse of Legally Blonde.) Then, I worked as a prosecutor in Sonoma County after which I moved to the DC area with my husband in ’97. I served as Majority Counsel to the Senate Banking Committee followed by a year-long stint at a lobbying firm. You get the picture. It was then that I decided to act on my dream of becoming an entrepreneur. Finding my favorite beauty products proved to be impossible without stepping foot in a mall–the horror. So, I decided to bring my favorites to Alexandria. A few trips to New York and a flight to France and Bellacara was born in March 2000.
