Storm Reid’s Fishtail Eyeliner Is an Elevated Addition to the “Euphoria” Makeup Trend
Storm Reid has us seeing double. On Jan. 9, the actor shared a photo of her “The Last of Us” premiere look, rocking double-fishtail liner delicately drawn on by makeup artist Pauly Blanch. The fine-line graphic liner gave Reid a futuristic look reminiscent of the expressive makeup in “Euphoria,” which Reid appears on. Her red carpet version, however, features dainty dots and soft liner strokes. Even better, it was created with products you can find at your local drugstore.
To achieve the look, Blanch said on Instagram Stories that he used Maybelline products, including what appeared to be the brand’s Tattoo Studio Ink Pen. That eyeliner in particular has a precise brush tip perfect for Reid’s complex fishtail eyeliner. As for the rest of her face, Blanch kept it relatively simple, giving Reid a soft glam complete with glowing skin and an ombré nude lip, ultimately letting the eyes take the spotlight.
Although a traditional cat-eye will always be classic, more celebrities lately have been experimenting with eyeliner, including Lori Harvey, who recently tried a similar “fishtail” makeup look. Other trends include “floating” eyeliner, in which the liner is placed above the crease of the eye for a more dramatic effect, and “bat wing” eyeliner, which was designed specifically for those with hooded eyes.
