The Emoji Makeup Challenge On Social Media Showcases Incredible Creativity In Beauty
For you, the world of makeup may be resigned to a bullet of lipstick and stick of eyeliner. However it’s far reaching beyond those boundaries. Just ask partakers of the emoji makeup challenge. A makeup trend has emerged on social media platforms where makeup artists and beauty creators replicate their favourite emoji on their most-loved canvas i.e. their faces. When you think of emojis, you definitely consider the most used ones like laughing till you cry face or red hearts. But these makeup lovers took the emoji makeup trend leaps and miles further.
Beauty creators from all over the world dug into the recesses of their digital keyboard to find emojis you may not even believe exist. From green haired witches to sprinkle covered ice-cream sundaes, every emoji is fair game when it’s a makeup challenge. While they don’t need to be replicated to the last stroke, emojis serving as makeup inspiration for their beauty look is good enough.
Some of them were a fantastical twist to emojis we’ve glanced past many times. That defined red dragon certainly does bring out the highlighter and contour.
We never thought the flame emoji could be translated to an actually wearable and extremely cool eye makeup look.
You’d think the butterfly one would be just pretty but this one plays with shadows to get darker.
Some involved their entire face in their looks. How about this dual flavoured ice-cream, topped with sprinkles and a waffle cone!
This version of the bee emoji, complete with an oozing honeycomb, was a striking twist we never saw coming.
And then there were others that went all out. This pair of gold koi fish and their entire pond came to life most beautifully.
We’re at a loss for words at how stunningly dramatic this mermaid makeup is and can’t ignore the finishing touches of gills and shells.
