From the metallic cuffs at Louis Vuitton’s SS15 show to the glitter-dipped lobes at Opening Ceremony’s FW16 show, a new and unexpected beauty trend is sweeping the industry. Ear makeup was first spotted on Anthony Vaccarello’s runway back in SS15, where models shunned earrings in favor of black liquid liner. Since then, the use of makeup to adorn one’s ears has become the cool way to accessorize a look. And thanks to quirky French makeup artist Violette, it’s getting bigger, bolder, and more beautiful than ever.

Violette has been posting stunning snaps of ear lobes covered in gleaming gold or defined with silver liner on her Instagram account, and the social-media world is going crazy for her cool ear-based beauty looks. Give this trend a try if you want to rock an ear cuff but don’t quite want to commit to a piercing, as all you need to achieve this look is liquid liner. You can use as much or as little as you want to jazz up a look, so the next time you’re lining your eyes, line your ears too!

Quick tip: Opt for a long-lasting, waterproof version – you don’t want the makeup rubbing off into your hair.
