How To Apply Dramatic Eyeshadow
How To Apply Dramatic Eyeshadow
Makeup can create drama. With intense pigments on your eyes using a black pencil liner, metallic eyeshadow and a frosty shade to blend, you will have a graphic, strong and dramatic eye makeup. Check out the details in this video.
Now, I'm going to show you how to apply dramatic eye makeup. Dramatic eye makeup is very graphic so it's strong makeup that will be the one I apply here and the more intense you use the pigments, the better. In this occasion, I'm going to use some metallics, products which are quite intense for my makeup face, and I'm going to start, first of all, contouring the eye with black.
I want just to define the area that I'm going to work on and for that, you just use your eyeliner, black pencil liner, and just pretty from the tip of the end of your eye, you're just going to go up and you're going to follow that curve that will make the socket of your eye. Okay, we go all the way so, up here, I'm just going all the way with very small strokes just to make sure that the area I want to cover is covered. So once you are happy with the shape that you've got, the dark colour black, we're going to smudge a little bit.
This colour, eventually, we're going to blend it with another one so this is going to be very very graphic, very intense and on the outside, again we're going to make that area blend-able. Okay, so for now, I'm just going to leave it like so but you want to make sure that the black is smudged a little bit on the inside. It's going to be quite, quite strong.
Okay now, after that, I'm going to use a very intensive blue and I'm going to dab this colour on the eye so I just get as much as I can and one word of advice will be that you can use a tissue – clean tissue, of course – and you put it like so, so that if you have any fallouts, it will fall on the actual tissue and here, we're going to dab the product. We're now going to sweep but at the same time while you're dabbing, you're making sure that you kind of bring a little bit so that you dab and very quickly as if you're smudging, you dab the colour so you bring it to that black, very intense black that we have there. Okay, so this is looking very strong already.
Now, I'm going to use a very frosty white and again I'm going to apply it, I'm just going to go here, right at the beginning of the eye. That's where I'm going to place the product and do remember I'm dabbing this product or not, actually sweeping the product because I don't want that fallout just yet. Okay, so once you're happy with it, we go back to our blending brush and go back to your black eye shadow, any one would do if it's matte or shiny, and you just go over that line and just make the line softer by smudging the product, so make it softer, and you just bring it towards the temple and again here on the top and make sure that the line is soft, not harsh.
But the colours need to be quite intense, okay. That's why we're doing this dramatic eye look because we want the colours to do just – you can go to the brow bone and here you can go a little bit and it's looking really nice. And now, what we're going to do is we're going to go under the eye.
So what we didn't do, we go in the bottom of the eye, lower eyelashes, and we just pretty much follow along the lashes and first, we did it with the blue and now, we're going to do it with the black, okay, and then be careful. Once again, be careful not to put too much product on the brushes because you're going to have that product coming down and then you have to clean it. What I'm going to do now is I'm going to put a little bit of eyeliner.
You can use gel liner or liquid liner, any sort of liner that you're happy to use. Okay, now you can put a white pencil and if it's night time, you can make it even darker with your black pencil liner. That's fine.
It's up to you. That will be your own choice. In this case, I'm using the pencil liner, okay, and applying the mascara.
You can put as much mascara as you want. In this case, I'm just going to put one coat because I'm doing this demonstration but you can put as much and also, you can use that with fake lashes as well. It's very useful but this is what you're going to do exactly on the
