Listed below are some dramatic eye make up tips to help you create the dramatic eye makeup you have dreamed of.
Dramatic eye make up application can take some practice, but the best thing about this is that you can experiment at the same time.
In order to create a dramatic look for your eye makeup:
- You should use an eye pencil to color your eyebrows a shade darker than their natural color.
- You should try to keep your eyebrows symmetrical and follow the shape whilst creating a natural arch in the process.
Larger and More Dramatic
Dramatic eye makeup will use the application of a light shade of eye shadow from the eyelash line to the eyebrow. A darker shade will then be applied in a thin line just in the crease of the eye. This makes the eyelid look larger and more dramatic.
Stronger and More Vibrant
To make your eye appear stronger and more vibrant, apply a medium shade of eye shadow over the darker shade that you have placed in the crease of the eye. This should be blended into the eyebrow bone.
Using Eyeliner and Mascara
Your dramatic eye makeup will also include your eyeliner and mascara. Apply black eyeliner to your upper eyelashes. A thin line should be used from the inner corner of the eye. For dramatic eye looks, extend the line diagonally upward past the outer corner of the eye. On the bottom lashes you will also use eyeliner. This should be blended in making sure not to close the line at the outer corner of the eye. This will make your eyes appear smaller. Finish your dramatic eye make up application with two coats of mascara on both the upper and lower lashes.
For Asian eyes
If you have Asian eyes and want to create dramatic eye makeup, black mascara and black eyeliner will be what you need. Eyeliner helps to make your eye look bigger. For Asian eyes you should extend your eyeliner just beyond the end of your eye and blend upwards and outwards.
