Of course start with a clean face. Prep your skin with eye cream and moisturizer. Give them a few minutes to sink in.
Concealer is a huge deal when trying to pull off a dramatic eye. The natural darkness around your eyes will make your overall makeup look sloppy. Conceal above and below your eyes, paying special attention to the inner and outer corners (this is where darkness lurks!)
- Smudge it up!
- Highlight to make it pop
4 . Medium Shadow for depth
This is the step many people miss. A medium shadow, something in the same color family as your lid color, but lighter, should be used in the crease. You’re trying to create depth without leaving any obvious lines. It’s important to overlap the dark and medium shades where they meet. Use the same medium tone to blend the outer portion of your lower lid.
And voila you’re done!
Don’t think black is the only way to go...Smoke up purple, blue, or green liners and shadows with the same technique. This is also a great way to incorporate your uniform colors ;)
