A beastly kind of beauty

When it comes to wild makeup trends, nothing comes close to animal print. Makeup artists the world over have been taking inspiration from every species, whether it be the on-trend cow print or classic leopard spots, with outstanding results to say the least.
From the naturally-inspired to the outrageous and avant-garde, there’s a design to cater to almost every critter and we’re very much living for every second of it.
Steady your hands and get your creative juices flowing because the animal print eye makeup trend is all about embracing your inner wild thing.
When creating a zebra-scape on your lids, try using upwards brush strokes to create an angular and lifted cat-eye that makes a statement but also flatters your natural features.

Blocky floating liner is your best friend when it comes to creating a standout animal print moment. Just don’t forget to line your eyes with a classic black to ground the look.

If you’re a wizard at eyeliner then this intricate design is for you. Get your detailing brush at the ready for those teeny tiny leopard spots (or whatever animal you’re wanting to channel) and wrap the look in a defined line of floating liner.
