Don’t worry, it’s not a look that requires you to actually look like a fox.
Finally, a beauty trend that’s doable for the common folk and not just for runway models and celebrities. In case your algorithm hasn’t brought you up to speed, foxy eye makeup has been trending all over Instagram. We’ve seen many interpretations of the look online, but they all have the same fox-like features that you usually find on, well, a fox.
The trend is allegedly inspired by Bella Hadid who often sports a foxy eye makeup look to give the illusion of elongated eyes. As for why it’s fox-like, it’s because it has sharp inner corners and an extended wingtip. Some even go as far as shaving their eyebrows thinner, contouring the sides of their nose to make it look sharp, and pulling their hair back for photos to give an even more lifted look. It’s also a recreation of almond-shaped eyes, much like Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner’s.
