We’re all for beauty trends that are a total feast for the eyes, and this one may have just topped our list – and then some. London-based self-taught makeup artist Ellie Costello (@makeupisart_x) has showcased her incredible talent on Instagram, and it’s unlike anything we’ve seen before. Ellie is the first to create what are becoming known as terrarium eyes – and they’re nothing short of mesmerising.

So what exactly are they? The look involves applying flowers and leaves to the eyelids and petals to the lashes. In the caption of one of her photos, she says, ‘I was inspired by the flowers growing in my garden (I apologise to my mum for the now missing flowers).’ In another Insta, she references forget-me-nots, which have also come from her mum’s garden. It seems Ellie really is re-establishing the definition of natural beauty.

We may not be sure this look will be one for the office, but we’re totally in awe of its fairy-like delicacy. Here are just some of Ellie’s beautiful creations...
