After years of promising you that glossy eyelids would be the next big Hollywood trend, shiny, dewy lids have finally been popping up on red carpets. Now, you might be picturing a big ol' streaky, gooey mess, and that can happen with this look, I'm not going to lie. But when done well, it's stunning. These four would qualify as lovely.

You can...

Reach for a taupe gloss for a vintage feel:

Use a hint of golden gloss to offset a matte lip:

Go bronze for wearable everyday look:

Or try a purple lipgloss on your lids—the effect is quite bold.

And remember when I tried it out backstage, too?

It was perhaps a little dramatic for 3:00 in the afternoon, but it really made my eyes pop!

To get a look like this you can use an eye gloss () or you can reach for your lipgloss—just don't use a ton of it if you're going with door number 2 so it doesn't run into your eyes. The key to pulling it off? Well, first, you've got to put down a little powder for it to grip. And second, just make peace with the face that it's going to migrate to your creases. It just will. But that's nothing that a cotton swab and a quick trip to the bathroom won't fix.

What do you think, ladies? Are these looks prettier than you would have predicted? And would you ever go glossy on your lids? Or is it too high maintenance for ya? Discuss.
