We see a lot of trends come and go—some much weirder than others. But this runway beauty trend is taking over Instagram, and despite being admittedly weird as heck, it's really pretty. Ear makeup made its debut on the Fashion Week runways a few seasons back and continually keeps surfacing, each time getting prettier and more sparkly.
Think of ear makeup as a new way to blend makeup and jewelry. With glitter, colors, and more, it basically becomes a fresh way to either highlight your fave jewelry or forego earrings altogether. The beauty of ear makeup is that there's no wrong way to wear it. You can outline your cartilage, paint just the lobe, do a light dusting—whatever your heart desires. Take a peek at some of the creative ways we've spotted makeup fans rocking the trend on Instagram.
