#1 What Is The Fox Eye?

A classic always has an edge over a new fad but while the cat-eyes will always be all over Instagram and at red carpet events, a new trend has emerged: the fox eye look. It’s essentially the same as the traditional winged liner everyone already uses but has some unique characteristics and features.

If you want to know the basic idea behind the fox eye look, it involves drawing lines from the outside corner of each eye up to the inside corner, curving them outward slightly, then making a slight blur where they meet the skin. It seems as if you’re actually drawing the image forward and down instead of up and back. Upward movement is one of the distinguishing features of this trend.

There are variations for everything; an example of one would be the length of a star’s wings. Some stars have shortened wings, like Jung Hoyeon or Rosie Huntington-Whitely, while others have stretched them out longer than most, like Olivia Rodrigo, Yura Shahidi, or Arianna Grande. 

#2 How To Make Fox Eye Makeup? 

You don’t need to have an operation to get the Fox Eye look. You can make a beautiful fox eye makeup just by following the steps below.

#2.1 You Should Use The Right Eyeliner

If you don’t mind using a pencil for the initial application, stick with one of these formulas. For even better wear, choose a pencil with a deeper pigment and a heavier texture. Brush tips made by some companies are better than others. My favorite product is Glamnetic Felt Tip Magnetic Eyeliner – Deep Space | Soo Future! Black Waterproof Liquid Liner, All-Day Hold for Magnetic Eyelashes, Sweatproof, Paraben-Free.

If liquid eyeliners aren’t for you, there are plenty of other options out there including pencils by Rock ‘n’ Kohl’ Iconic Liquid Eye Pencil Barbarella Brown.

#2.2 Angle Your Wings Up So They Face Upward

Fox eyes tend to be a little flatter than “regular” wing eyes. It gives them a bit more emphasis when used for the start position.

To successfully create an outer corner at the top of the upper lash lines, start by drawing a short curved stroke from the outside corner of the eye outwards towards the middle of the brow. Then continue outward until reaching the end of the eyebrow. Next, draw a shorter straight vertical stroke downwards and outwards. Finally, draw another short curved stroke upwards towards the inner corner of the eye. To achieve the desired results from an eyeshadow application, use extreme angles to create the illusion of the eyelid angulating down toward the brow line and up at the outer corner.

#2.3 To Soften and Blur Your Eye Shadow

With most fox-eye looks there is always some sort of blurriness or smudging going on, giving them their own unique character that differentiating them from regular winged liner looks. You can use an eye shadow primer, pencil liner, or a combination of these techniques, and the goal is usually to get softer edges. If you want more coverage without going overboard, using an eyeshadow brush will help diffuse the color throughout your eyelid.

#2.4 If You Pull On Your Eyes When Applying Eyeliner They’ll Be Crooked

Lifting, tugging, and stretching your eyeliner may cause it to lose its original form and potentially ruin your shadow. You should leave your eyes alone while applying concealers and do a final application after your makeup is applied.

They’re really good at shaping and smoothing out your eyebrows. Cleaning out the creases at the outer corners of the eyes helps create an illusion of an upturned eyelid. Make sure to keep them well cleaned.

#2.5 Taking Care Of Last Details

Complete it by applying some makeup, perhaps false lashes, and you’ve got yourself an adorable fox eye look! You’ll need to get at least one good eye looking back at you.

#3 Gigi Hadid’s Makeup Artist Shared Her Best Tips On The Fox Eye Trend

You don’t even have to invest in expensive makeup if you just use a pencil eyeliner in two key spots. A makeup artists who has worked with some of Gigi Hadid’s most iconic red carpet appearances has shared her own take on the trend. On April 26, Par­son’s posted a short 5 minute tutorial explaining the features of Instagram TV. The trick to achieving a smokey eye without looking too dramatic (or too fake) is actually pretty easy. All you need to get started is a black liquid eyeliners pen, a white eyeliners pencil, some micelles water, and a couple point-tipped Q-tips.

Beginning her look at the inside corners of her eye using Maybelline Eyestudio Master Precise All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner, Black, Parsons creates a sharply defined, inward-facing triangle shape. She explains that the brush has a really slim applicator tip, making it easy to get from start to finish. Don’t fret if you can’t achieve the thin lines on the first attempt – use the micellar water or Q-tip to fix any mistakes. It’s eyeliner. With a Q-Tip and some Micellar Water, you can easily get rid of blackheads and whiteheads!

She starts by drawing two short horizontal strokes from the inner corner of the outside corners of the eyelid down to the lash line. Then she draws one vertical stroke across the entire lid. Finally, she adds a couple of small curving strokes on top of each other on either side of the upper lash line. Once again, she makes sure to keep the line thick so that there is no harsh line between the eyebrows and the rest of the face. She doesn’t have time to fill them in. She instead reaches for a white pencil to cover up any dark circles under her eyes and brightens her lower water line.

Yay, you’re done! That’s the whole point. Don’t be concerned if you aren’t sure when to join the inner and outer corners together. That’s one of the ways to give yourself a flawless complexion: by using your eyeliner skillfully. If you’re looking for a way to create sexy eyes without having to spend hours staring at yourself in front of a mirror, then follow these steps in this article. 

#4 Fox Eye Makeup Tips

  1. You don’t need to worry about getting your wings precisely aligned; just leave them at an angle until they come out of the oven. Then remove the tape.
  2. With fox eyes, it’s best to start by concentrating the bulk of the lashes (the ones closest to the eye) at the outer corners and then lessen them as they get closer to the pupil. Some of the most popular false lash brand names include: Velour, Ardel, Lashify, and Eylure.
  3. If you’re not comfortable wearing false lashes or if they don’t suit your eye shape, concentrate your eyeshadow on the outer corners. There are some well known mascaras that include: Maybelline’s Rocket Lash mascara, Benefit’s Roller Lash mascara, Too Faced’s Better than Sex Mascara, and IT Cosmetics’ super hero mascara.
  4. Try out different colors for eyeshadow and eyeliner. Because they’re often depicted in movies, people sometimes think that using eye makeup to draw wings on their eyes would look good. For most women, however, this isn’t.
