A girls’ night out means sexy, dramatic eye makeup and if you follow us on social media you know we love some drama, especially when it comes to eyes. Here are some of our favorite dramatic eye makeup trends.
We can learn a thing or two from Princess Jasmine including her striking Arabian eyes. Creating this dramatic eye makeup look is fairly easy–It’s all about having your eyes look bigger, so you’ll have to rely on some amazing dark, black liner and some bomb lashes! Another thing to keep in mind about achieving this dramatic eye makeup look is to make sure you shape your eyebrows and opt for a bolder brow.
We love a good, classic smokey eye– especially one done with a matte, chocolate eyeshadow. The key to this dramatic eye makeup is to apply the dark shadow on the lid and gradually go lighter toward the crease. Our LiveGlam pro tip for you: Use your finger to press the color on to the lid and then use a makeup brush, like a fluffy blending brush, to soften the color from your lid to your crease.
Let it Glitter
You know we’re obsessed with everything and anything that sparkles. To make this dramatic eye makeup look right, make sure to have a good eye primer so your sparkles/shimmer stays on. Try experimenting with gold shimmer on the lid and add some depth in the crease with deep brown eyeshadow. The combination together is to die for!
If there is one dramatic eye makeup trend that is really poppin’ right now it’s the smoky mauve look, which is actually tricky to nail. Because mauves tend to have so much red undertones to them, this makeup look could go really wrong. It might look like you have a rash on your eyes if you don’t do it right. Look for a mauve that suits your skin and make sure it has a blue undertone to it. When you apply the color concentrate on depositing the color just on your lid and choose a soft pink or nude to blend in your crease, so you soften any “harsh” edges.
Pedal to the Metal
Metallics are hot right now, even with eye makeup. There’s not a lot that goes into this dramatic makeup trend. You can make any shimmer eyeshadow look metallic if you get it wet with water or MAC’s Prep+Prime Fix. Be sure to use a tapered brush that you’ll be able to get wet and that will hold on to the shimmer.
