Chances are that while you’ve probably never hit pedal to the metal in a high-speed car or ever driven over the speed limit in your life, you’ve probably owned at least one leather jacket to pair with some of your coolest sunglasses or combat boots. In a world where minimalism and the clean girl aesthetic are taking over, the motorcore trend stands out in doing the opposite. Inspired by rugged tire tracks, tough leather, and the fearless nature of open-wheel racecar drivers, motorcore makeup is all about thick, filled-in brows, dark lip shades, heavy mascara, and smudged eyeliner. Better yet? You can score the entire look from one spot, courtesy of these ultra cool motorcore must-haves from e.l.f. Cosmetics.
The most daring of you can opt for the black “All Night” shade in e.l.f.’s satin lipstick, but either way you’ll want to add the deep maroon “Untamed” or rich plum “Smolder” shades to your cart. Come for the musky pigments, and stay for the comfortable, moisturizing formula.
Yes, this look is all about darker tones, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun, and this glittery black shadow is the ultimate proof of that. Pat it all over your lids for an oil slick-esque look or just blend it into the outer edge of your creases when you prefer a more subtle vibe.
e.l.f.’s handy shadow stick is crafted with a no-budge formula, which is perfect when you’re working with a rich pigment like this one. Apply it to your crease and below your lower lash line, then blend for a smoldering smokey eye. Bonus: It comes with its own built-in sharpener.
Featuring an ultra fine tip for MUA-level precision, line your upper and lower waterline with e.l.f.’s black eyeliner to make this look smolder even more. Another no-budge formula, trust that you won’t be looking at yourself with racoon eyes when you go to take some cute selfies.
We love a daring cat eye, and the ultra fine tip on this liner was made for exactly that. Go bold with that or simply make your upper lash line look a bit thicker by applying a thin line of this at the base of your lid. Liquid liner can be a bit intimidating for first-timers, but the easy-glide wand on this makes application totally seamless.
This look is all about drama, so lifted and curled lashes are an essential. Apply a few coats of the smudge and flake-resistant formula for a false lash effect (no glue required). The double-sided, curved silicone brush is expertly designed to grip and curl each lash with ease.
Your eyes and lips can’t hog all the drama, which is why a cool contour really brings together the edgy vibes this look is already serving. This palette does that and more — highlight and emphasize your cheekbones with the bronzer and highlighters, then apply the contour shade to the hollows of your cheeks.
