Tortoise Shell Makeup Is A Big Mood For Summer And I'm Not Mad About It

Tortoise shell design is currently having a huge moment, probably because it is super timeless and universally flattering. You definitely own or have owned a pair of eyeglass frames, sunglasses, or earrings with the pattern, and you've probably seen the design in fancy cars.

Now, the popular design is making its way into makeup looks across The Gram, and I am absolutely here for it.

Although it may look like a leopard-inspired eye look, tortoise shell eye makeup is more intricate.

Grab your tortoise shell glasses and inspect them. Instagram makeup artist @alexirmua really hit the nail on the head with this tortoise shell cat eye!

No tortoise shell design is the same.

This Instagram makeup artist opted for a brighter tortoise shell eye look in the form of a super dramatic drawn out cat eye.

I'm obsessed.

The great thing about tortoise shell makeup is that it will resemble the pattern no matter what.

It's pretty goof proof! And you can use whatever tones of brown you'd like.

I've even seen white or creme tortoise shell patterns, so adding those tones to your eye look would definitely increase the drama.

This makeup artist really brought the glamour by adding some gold glitter to complement the warm tones of the design.
