Last year saw the absolute peak of body makeup in the form of butt contouring, leg sculpting, and even neck shadowing. Just when we thought women were letting their extremities breathe, we came across the thigh makeup trend on Instagram.
This technique is just what it sounds like: people are applying full faces of makeup to their upper legs. Some opt for only a dramatic eye look (a smoky thigh, if you will), while others paint on lips and noses and glue on false lash strips.
As weird as it may be, the trend is a fun one for aspiring makeup artists to try. Instead of using a paper face chart, design your next fancy face on your thigh! It's an excellent canvas, as it's typically smooth and relatively flat. See some of the best glam gams from Instagram when you read on.
