Ear makeup is actually a new trend on Instagram

A new beauty trend is catching fire over on Instagram, where users are drawing lines or dipping glitter on their ear lobes to stand out. It’s a simple but bold statement, and a neat substitute for heavy multiple earrings.

According to InStyle, the concept started two years ago during Anthony Vaccarello’s runway at Paris Fashion Week. It later caught on this year when Louis Vuitton and Open Ceremony used ear cosmetics during their respective shows.

Now the trend is all over social media, thanks to French makeup artist Violette Serrat’s designs featuring golden ears paired with matching earrings, and ear outlines coloured with metallic purple glitters.

We’re not sure what to make of this yet. It’s pretty creative and daring, like something straight out of a sci-fi film. But then again, ears are weird – especially if you stare at them long enough.

What do you think about ear makeup? Let us know in the comments. We’re all… ears!
