Negative Space Make-up Look Is The Beauty Trend That You Need To Try Right Now!

Beauty trends change in the blink of an eye and before we know it we have a new trend ruling the beauty community. It is pretty hard to catch up with them, but we still try. And in our effort to bring to you the amazing and most prominent beauty trends, today we're here to talk about about a beauty trend that has endless possibilities when it comes to creating different looks.


Negative space is a trend that primarily started with the nails and now it has moved on to eye looks and lips as well. What this trend entails is leaving a portion of the look bare. The blank space thus created gives the trend its name.

The space left blank adds a dimension to your look and takes the entire attention to the design that you created around the blank space. At first glance, it might seem daunting, but it is a look that is quick and easy to create.


There are three ways to create a negative space make-up look. The first and second one is for those who are beginners at applying make-up. And that is to use sticky tape or stencil to cover a portion of the eye or the lips and then create the rest of the look around it. The third way is for those who are little more experienced and confident with the art of applying make-up and that is to use a concealer to cover the area where you want to leave a black space. This requires a precision that only comes with experience and practice.

So, if you want a quick look that looks like it took a lot of efforts and time, but, in fact, it didn't, create a negative space make-up look using a tape or stencil. It is a look that is neat, quick and something different from the usual.

You can create a negative space look on your eyes, lips and nails. Let us see how you can create a simple yet stunning black negative space look in a few simple steps.
