We women live in tough times - a certain President of the United States is threatening openly misogynistic policies and believe it or not, we're still fighting to close the gender pay gap among other daily struggles. We've never needed girl power more and thanks to a heroic makeup artist of Instagram, we'll now be extending the female fight to our makeup routines. Enter: Marissa Melhorn i.e. the brainchild of the tiara tutorial. This crown eyeshadow craze sweeping Instagram is makeup fit for queens and is the closest we'll come to being classed as actual royalty. If 2016 was the year of the unicorn, this year's all about the queen.
You'll be pleased to hear the coronation of your eyelids is less laborious than that of the actual Queen and it can be recreated within minutes using products you probably already have. To mimic this makeup artistry fit for a Disney princess, outline a crown shape on each eyelid using concealer. Once you've got your base, the power is in your hands - no colour combo or level of creativity is off limits if Instagram is anything to go by. Paint over the concealer crown outline with the most sparkly eyeshadow you own and you're free to add tiny jewels to the tips, again using concealer as an adhesive. If you're in need of some inspo, look no further:
