Create gorgeous dramatic eyes for your next holiday get-together with these easy steps from Suzie Bond, owner of Perfect 5th in Mooresville, NC, and a L'oreal Professionel Portfolio Artist.

Tools

You'll need:

  • Mascara
  • Eye Shadow
  • Eye liner
  • Makeup applicator brushes

Applying eye shadow with the sponge applicators it comes with won't allow you to define your eye shape as well as a brush application. Invest in 3 size brushes to complete your eye look - a wide eye foundation brush - use this to apply the lightest base shade. A narrower shadow brush to apply contour (shadow placed in the crease to deepen eyes). And a small liner brush to be used wet and dry to apply shadow as a liner.

Eye Shadows

Soft Browns and Plums are the perfect color palette to compliment any eye while accentuating the positive.  Begin with a tone similar to your skin over the entire lid. Choose a deeper shade of brown or plum in the crease making it wider at the outer corner and narrow toward your nose. Be sure to blend the line for soft sophistication.

For an easy application try  Mirabella's Magic Marker. Utilize a wet brush in your favorite deep shadow to blend and line the bottom lashes. Now go to the medium shade to apply contour - always making is narrow in the crease closest to your nose and wider to the outer corner. Be sure to blend that shade down into the liner to complete the corner. Now use the lightest shade over everything to blend the contour down to your liner then gently up to the brow bone. Put a bit extra along the brow bone to highlight the top.

Eye Liner

For a more updated look of heavy liner, try using more than one color. Begin with black line in the lash line then blend it larger with a deep color of green or purple. Blend with a lighter shade of brown or plum into the lid for a sophisticated smokey eye.

For a more dramatic eye appropriate for your evening functions begin with a medium coat of liner - narrow at the nose and slightly wider at the outer edges.

Utilizing a tiny liner brush, wet it and apply a fine line of your darkest shade at the upper lash line. Rewet for the second eye. Be sure to push the product into the lash line - you don't want it sitting above it. Finish with a fine stroke under your bottom lashes - thicker on the outer corner to nothing at the nose. Now for mascara.

Mascara

Having dramatic eyes can be summed up in one word: Mascara. Be sure to gently apply multiple coats... allowing them to dry between applications. Replace your mascara every 6 weeks to assure no clumping or spreading of bacteria. And never share with a friend.You want to claim this product as your very own to keep it bacteria free for healthy gorgeous eyes.

And be sure to groom those brows! They are the frame for those windows to your soul!
