Focus on the “Foxy Eyes” trend

Focus on the foxy eyes trend

The foxy eyes is a makeup technique that recalls the shape of the fox’s eyes (where its name comes from). Always inspired by the animal world, we add this makeup trend in the beauty vocabulary where we also find the cat eye and doe eyes. This technique emphasizes the eyes by delicately lengthening them. In the end, you will achieve a shape that gives the impression of having almond eyes.

Recently seen on the channels of many bloggers and vloggers, foxy eyes are already part of the look of stars like Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski and Kendall Jenner, among others. So far on Instagram, there are more than 107 thousand posts with the tag “foxy eyes”. If you also want to embrace this makeup trend, follow the tutorials below and you are guaranteed the perfect result. The foxy eyes technique is accessible even to beginners. You just need a few brushes and a little practice.

Our makeup tips to wear the perfect foxy eyes

There are three makeup methods to achieve Foxy eyes: using eyeliner, eye shadow or by giving a specific shape to the eyebrows. Which one to choose is a question of occasion ( evening or daily makeup ) and the products you usually use for makeup. In fact, the technique in question represents a soft version of the cat eyes, but with elongated and more blurred lines.

If you are precise enough with the eyeliner, this is the easiest technique to use. You need only one product to make the Foxy eyes. Choose the liner you are used to working with. The choice is really huge: liquid eyeliner, pencil, pen or in the form of a gel. The latter is recommended rather to professionals because it is applied using a precise eyeliner brush and it is you who must control the amount of the product used. You should only immerse the bristles of the brush and then remove the excess product.

So, if you are a beginner, bet on the pens and try these little tips: use scotch tape to achieve a perfect line, a hair clip or a spoon.

Okay, start applying eye makeup from the inner corner of your eye. Apply the black liner to the outer part, forming a sort of “V”. Keep in mind that the goal is to lengthen the eye upwards. It gives the impression of a bigger look. We advise you to try this technique for an evening with friends or for a special occasion because the result of foxy eyes is a little more dramatic for daily makeup.

If you’re not comfortable with eyeliner, go for a beautiful eye shadow. For delicate makeup, choose warm colors. You can also add a golden accent which will bring light to your look. So you will need:

  • Eyeshadow primer, so makeup stays on all day long
  • Eye shadow in neutral shades (eg 3 shades of brown: light, medium and very dark – almost black)
  • fluffy blending brush
  • Hollow eyelid brush
  • Fold brush

Tutorial for achieving the foxy eyes

Apply the base to unify the lids and add a nude blush using the fluffy blending brush. Then take the crease brush and highlight the brow bone with a light color. Apply dark brown eyeshadow in the crease of the eyelid and blend. Insist on the outer corner of the eye by stretching in a pointy shape and slightly lengthen the gaze upwards. Use the hollow brush to apply the shadows in the crease of the eyelid more precisely. In fact, you almost have to make a connection between the outer corner of the eyelid and the outer tip of the eyebrow. A touch of mascara and you’re good to go!

To have a foxy look without using strong makeup, you can just change the shape of your eyebrows. Of course, not everyone can benefit from it, because it depends on the shape of the face and the eyes. 

See, for example, Bella Hadid and Gisele Bündchen with their long eyebrows with a high tail. If you have such eyebrows, you can just brush them and apply eyebrow gel to keep their shape. If necessary, work the eyebrows with a dry pencil or apply a little suitable powder.

Be Gorgeous

For an optimal look of your foxy eyes, you can combine the three techniques. Do not worry! For the rest of the face, choose delicate makeup as the focus here is on the eyes. Apply some bronzer and nude lipstick. You can combine fox eye makeup with glossy skin style makeup, which is also one of the hot season trends.

Apply the base to unify the lids and add a nude blush using the fluffy blending brush. Then take the crease brush and highlight the brow bone with a light color. Apply dark brown eyeshadow in the crease of the eyelid and blend. Insist on the outer corner of the eye by stretching in a pointy shape and slightly lengthen the gaze upwards. Use the hollow brush to apply the shadows in the crease of the eyelid more precisely. In fact, you almost have to make a connection between the outer corner of the eyelid and the outer tip of the eyebrow. A touch of mascara and you’re good to go!

If your style is more exotic and you like bright colors, you can of course prefer this one to nude shades. Use eyeliner, pencil, kohl or pen in the color you want and this way you will achieve the bolder foxy eyes look. In this case, it is necessary to use only one product to adopt the Bella Hadid eye makeup shown in the photo above. Ideally, match the color of the pencil to the color of your eyes and of course to that of your outfit. Women with green eyes can bet on plum or burgundy shades. Peach or copper shades are ideal for blue eyes. And for those with brown eyes, we recommend blue makeup, purple or green. Be foxy no matter what color of dress you choose! Feeling comfortable with your makeup is a must.

What is the secret of the stars who have adopted the style of foxy eyes to perfection?

Photos of Bella and Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Emily Ratajkowski are flooding the internet and magazines as a perfect example of foxy eyes. But what is the secret of this perfection? The answer is hidden in aesthetic medicine! Maybe you are not surprised. The name of the procedure is “lifting by threads tensors” or “thread lift”. Although celebrities do not confirm a possible intervention, many Instagrammers have fun displaying their photos before and after the facelift. So don’t despair if you haven’t managed to recreate Bella’s eyes in detail. We always opt for a natural look without going through the surgery box.

Tension threads – what exactly are they?

They are absorbable threads, which stimulate the production of new collagen. The threads are visible 2-3 weeks after the procedure, and the effect lasts for about a year. This can vary depending on the type of skin. The tension threads are inserted after the injection of an anesthetic and give a more or less uncomfortable sensation. The installation lasts 30-40 minutes. This is really astonishing because there are no scientific studies yet that examine the effect and consequences of this facelift. If you are brave enough to give this cosmetic procedure a try, find out about your chosen cosmetic surgeon, as the consequences can be serious.

The thread lift is considered a mini-facelift without surgery, but you must be as careful as after a cosmetic operation. Your face will be red and a little swollen. Bruises are not excluded, but it depends on your skin. You must avoid facial expressions two weeks after the facelift, so as not to tear the threads and cause facial asymmetry. For a more lasting result, combine this intervention with anti-aging procedures and treatments.
