Maya Jama Gives a New Spin on the Floating Eyeliner Trend

Maya Jama Wears Floating Eyeliner at the 2022 BRIT Awards

Never one to shy from a glamorous red carpet moment, Maya Jama attended the 2022 BRIT Awards sporting one of the hottest makeup trends of the year — the floating eyeliner.

Jama's glam team pulled out all the stops for the night, creating a sharp cat eye doubled with a feline floating flick in the crease and pairing her eye makeup with a straight middle-part style cascading down her back. Letitia Sophia was behind Jama's chic makeup moment with Brady Lea on her super-long, sleek hair. As for the outfit, Jama wore a standout black zig-zag set dress by Mônot, which was styled by Kyle De'Volle.

Now we don't want to make assumptions, but we can only guess that Jama's floating liner was somewhat inspired by the viral makeup trend from the hit show "Euphoria." During the show, we've been treated to playful and eye-catching beauty trends, including dashes of fluorescent colour, vivid reds and purples, lids covered in gems, and intricate gold-foil details. Taking possible inspiration, Jama's eyelids were washed with a golden shimmer and completed with the abstract floating eyeliner. This is a trend we have seen adored by celebrities from Simone Biles and Zendaya to Addison Rae. Jama's take on the trend was completed with a smoky baby wing.

For the rest of the look, Sophia added a natural flush to the cheeks using Iconic London's Duo Blush in Coral Glow (£24, originally £30), adding the brand's Original Liquid Illuminator (£30) for a seamless finish. The whole look was finished with a neutral glossy lip. There is no denying that Jama looked magnificent, and we have no doubt part of that is down to skin-care prep using her brand MIJ Masks.

All in all, Jama served us a strong eye moment to set the night off with a bang. Read on to see all angles of her floating eyeliner at the 2022 BRIT Awards.
