We thought the world had reached peak contouring with neck slimming and cleavage sculpting, but it seems the trend for making up odd body parts isn’t over yet.
Makeup artist Violette has introduced the world gorgeous ear makeup looks, which made her followers desire turning their own ears into a canvas. Could this be the new statement brow?
This intergalactic-looking silver ear in which she traced the outlines of the outer and inner ear with silver paint.
This one is shiny gold accent lobe she created for CR Fashion Book, a perfect complement to cool-girl-beloved small gold hoops.
It was back in 2014, at Paris Fashion Week, that ear makeup first became a thing. Designer Anthony Vaccarello sent his models down the runway with graphic, inky lobes that were drawn on with black liquid liner. Makeup artist Tom Pecheux was going for a quasi jewelry look. Kind of like a second-skin ear cuff.
Since then, Pat McGrath created a silver statement ear for Louis Vuitton Spring 2016 and Yadim dreamed up full-on glitter ears for Opening Ceremony.
Some artists who applying makeup to the ears think it’s really not cute when your face is one colour, and your ears are another, that’s why they love to add dark contour shade to models’ ears.
