What is Siren Eyes?

To understand the trend, we must break it down. If you're into Greek mythology, you'll know that sirens were seductive creatures that lured sailors to their deaths with their bewitching voices, causing their ships to crash into the rocks.

If you've been scrolling on TikTok recently, you've probably noticed a lot of conversation about "dark femininity" or simply dark femme. It's all about the art of seduction and harnessing that mysteriously sexy energy – being a siren, if you will.

Well, Siren Eyes basically refers to the makeup style that evokes that seductive energy. That typically involves smokey black eyeliner that really elongates the eye but makes you look a little sleep a la Euphoria's Alexa Demie.

Know Your Meme describes it as: "In the 2010s on social media platforms and internet blogs, makeup tutorials popularised the concept of Siren Eyes. The style featured heavy eye makeup meant to draw attention to them, subsequently luring men into the trap.

"The beauty trend spread to TikTok tutorials and ultimately led to an aesthetic comparison between 'Does Eyes' and 'Siren Eyes'. These two terms were based on makeup lingo but were also embedded in physical expression."

In contrast, Doe Eyes is the opposite of Siren Eyes and refers to that wide-eyed, innocent look.
