Diamonds they say are a girl’s best friend but the position of pearls cannot be contended with either. Pearls, which are commonly worn as jewellery have been regal right from the Cleopatra era to the time of the Roman Empire and they seem to get even more elegant as the years go by. Fast forward to 2020, makeup artists and beauty influencers have developed a new obsession with pearls and this time, it’s got everything to do with makeup.
The pearl makeup trend which involves sticking tiny pearls to your face was first spotted on runways and like everything fashion-related, it has found its way onto the streets and red carpets.
The pearl makeup trend is simple and elegant and pretty easy to achieve. It can be worn with both minimal and bold makeup looks. All you need is some iridescent flat-backed pearls, lash glue and any comfortable tool like tweezers for placing the pearls on your face. In the absence of such tools, your fingers could work too. The result is an exotic, edgy look that’s sure to set you apart from all other faces at any event.
Your choice of pearl placement is left to your style and how creative you can get. If your makeup is heavy, be sure to keep your pearl arrangement simple. You can play with colours and mix the pearls with other stones and jewels for an even more bedazzling effect. Just make sure your pearl arrangement complements your outfit and the event you’re heading to.
