We’re totally in the know about the newest and most popular beauty trends (and, er, some that are not so popular – such as edible chocolate nails and pizza eyeliner), and we’re so in love with this one for brightening up our peepers for summer.

Now, when we say brighten, we don’t mean in the usual way, like packing on the highlighter and white kohl onto our waterlines. This trend definitely takes brightening to a whole new level. Enter… rainbow strobing.

Yep, just when you thought you’d heard it all, celebrity makeup artist Patrick Ta (he’s behind some of the most famous faces, such as Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid, Alessandra Ambrosio… we could keep going but we’d be here forever) has hit us with a whole new level of sassiness.

And the beauty of it? It’s appropes for whether you’re hitting a festival or just going for a girls night out, as you can make it as subtle or as extravagant as you like. To create the look, simply smudge a bit of vibrant pigment into the inner corners of your eyes to give them a well needed pick-me-up.
