This is what I came up with for today’s look and took some inspo from @makeupbyriquelle s old look but I gave it a little twist! Even though I’m a little rusty with my skills I’m not too mad at the outcome! But I’d love to know what you guys think of it!

Summer might be coming to an end, but the cloud eye makeup trend is still going strong. The look involves enhancing the eyes by using different colored eyeshadows to create a cloud shape. The most traditional and most popular looks of the style involve a white and blue design with the cloud perimeter being placed on the crease of the eye.

Of course, makeup artists are getting creative and experimenting with less expected colors (pink! purple! yellow!) and the placement. They’re even carrying the look beyond the eyes and decorating their cheeks, lips, nails and sometimes faces with the cloud design.

The origins of the cloud makeup look vary with many Instagram makeup artists crediting others. Allure credited Zareen Haque for helping to champion the look and make it go viral on Reddit.

Given the number of makeup looks that are online, it’s definitely Instagram-approved. It might not be the most wearable everyday look, but it is a playful way to make use of your eyeshadow collection.
