Doe eyes is the adorable makeup trend that’s taking over TikTok
If you haven’t already spotted ‘Siren Eyes’ blowing up on TikTok, um, where have you been? But now the makeup trend has a new baby sis – ‘Doe Eyes’ – that’s limbering up to steal the spotlight. Tutorials for Siren Eyes vs Doe Eyes have been trending across social with Mean Girl’s Karen Smith providing the soundtrack. “But, I’m always on your left?”
The jist? One’s sexy, one’s sweet. It’s Xtina vs Britney (circa Baby One More Time). Siren Eyes sees liner elongated and lashes swept outward for a heavily-lidded sexy, feline look, inspired by Greek mythology’s dangerously seductive sea creatures. The trend has already picked up over 380 million views on TikTok and counts celebs like Megan Fox, Bella Hadid and even Marilyn Monroe as fans. Doe Eyes, on the other hand is the complete opposite, giving us adorable, pure, innocent Bambi vibes.
Instead of creating a cat woman shape, eyes are rounded and widened with a dot of highlighter in the inner corner and a creamy-coloured kohl pencil brightening the waterline. Mascara is stroked straight up and out through lashes for a wide-eyed, fluttery, fanned-out effect and liquid liner is used to create a dinky doe-like flick, over an outstretched dagger liner. It’s quickly catching up to its big sis with over 335 million TikTok views and some serious support from celeb fans like Ariana Grande, Sydney Sweeney and influencer, Wolfie Cindy.
Makeup artist, Hayley Bui, created a side-by-side comparison of the two looks with both proving popular in the comments (because, who says you have to choose a team). Both offer a different mood for different days.
