The latest beauty trend comes with a twist: ‘Martini makeup’
Some like it shaken, not stirred. Some like it dirty. No matter what, this makeup fad is neat.
Setting the bar high with bold shadows, look-at-me lip colors and shimmering shades, beauty buffs are bingeing out on the #MartiniMakeup trend.
And social media’s drinking it all in.
“Martini makeup is a thing now,” announced NYC makeup artist Brittney Foley, 30, in a trending tutorial dedicated to the cocktail-inspired look. “It’s the exact opposite of the strawberry makeup trend, and a bit more leaning into the unapproachable makeup trend.”
The cheers-worthy glam, which has poured in a staggering 1.5 million views beneath its eponymous TikTok hashtag, sees women painting up their faces to replicate the luxuriously chic style of the ever-buzzy alcoholic beverage in their preferred fashion — be it a classic, a dirty or even an espresso martini.
Cosmetics connoisseurs with a taste for the hard stuff are achieving the look with sharp eyeliner wings, glittery powders on the hood of the eye and, for those who like it extra briny, eye-catching pops of olive shadows.
“It’s all about creating a makeup look that matches your drink of choice,” beauty influencer Zoe Kim Kenealy, 27, from Boston, explained to The Post. She first coined the “dirty martini makeup” movement in November 2022.
