While the rising temperatures of summertime have left many of us craving a slice of watermelon, it looks like this seasonal fruit has inspired a breaking beauty trend. Watermelon eye makeup is officially making a splash just as pool and beach season approaches. With summer parties on the agenda, watermelon inspired eyes could be a gorgeous new way to accessorize your favourite sundress.

Spotted on Instagram, the trend involves punchy shades of red and green. Makeup lovers are turning to rosy eyeshadow, accented with contrasting green eyeliner or smudged shadow on the lower lash line. To achieve a look inspired by the seeds of the summery melon, tiny dark dots of eyeliner are applied on the top eyelids. From expertly winged cat eyes to smudges of shimmer, there are also many ways to accent your eye makeup.

For a finishing touch, beauty addicts are also adding lashings of mascara or false eyelashes to achieve a doe-eyed effect for the evening hours. As all the focus is on the eyes, a neutral or nude pout paired with rosy cheeks can balance out extreme eyelids. While we can’t argue that watermelon is a favourite pick for picnics and barbecues, watermelon makeup may be the latest way to beautify yourself for summer gatherings.
