Raise your hand if you struggle with coloring inside the lines. Keep it raised, because the latest beauty trend is just for you. Unless you’re a professional makeup artist, dusting on eyeshadow is far from elementary. It takes skill to pack pigment neatly onto your eyelids and even more dexterity to carve out a cut crease. However, no matter your level of makeup artistry, negative space eyeshadow is a look anyone can pull off.

Instead of depositing eyeshadow onto your lid, you skip the area altogether and apply color to the crease or lash line. For visual learners, see Tracee Eliss Ross’ latest selfie.
