When it comes to eye makeup, the possibilities seem endless.
A new trend caught on and new styles start popping up in the latest fashion websites, YouTube videos or our social media feeds.
But most women are not a professional makeup artist. They tend to rely on only a handful of standard everyday go-to makeup. Such as makeup for workdays. A makeup for weekends. Makeup for special days and sometimes even makeup for just Friday.
If you even need some inspiration to add on to your eye makeup arsenal. Try these 4 dramatic styles.
#1 The Rocker Makeup Look
The '80s inspired edgy eye makeup. Embrace the resurgence with this makeup look.
- Apply a dark grey eyeshadow on your eyelids. This will act as the base of the look.
- Use a fluffy eye shadow brush to slightly blend the colour into your crease. You want to remove any harsh lines here.
- Next use a flat eye shadow brush to give it a matte black shade. Slowly apply additional layers. Gradually build up the colour a bit at a time. Continue until you have reached your desired level of darkness.
- Use a blending brush to blend the colours into your crease and smoke out the look.
- Now for the lower lash line, use a small flat top brush to line it. Try to slightly smudge it as you apply from inner edges to outer.
- For the finishing touches. Lined your eyes with magnetic eyeliner and apply the magnetic false lashes.
#2 The Simple Day Look
Low key and casual. But still a bit of drama. Good for work or a Sunday brunch.
- Start by covering your upper eyelid with a nude shadow.
- Define your crease using a blending brush with the soft peach shadow.
- For the upper eyelid, fill it with the blush pink eyeshadow.
- To define your upper and lower lash line, use a deep brown or a black eyeshadow and apply this with an angular brush along the lash line.
- Blend this out with the blending brush.
- Lined your top lash line with magnetic eyeliner. Snap-on the magnetic lashes and you are good to go.
# 3. The Negative Space Cut Crease
The cut crease eye makeup trend took the beauty world by storm. Mix it up with the negative space cut crease makeup look.
- Apply a matt nude eye shadow on your lids. Preferably one that matches your skin tone. You want to make sure it looks like you are not wearing any shadow at all. This gives the negative space look.
- Create the crease with liquid eyeliner. Start at the inner corner of your eye. Use light, gentle strokes. You want to first draw a thin line from the inner to the other corner of the eyes.
- Finish the crease. Thicken the line and try to fix any imperfections.
- Create the wing. Apply magnetic eyeliner to the lash line. At the outer corners of the eye, extend the eyeliner to create a wing.
- Connect the wing to the cut crease liner with the liner you just applied.
- Finish the look with a pair of magnetic eyelashes.
#4 The Classic Cat Eye Look
Eye flick or wing. Maybe our love of cats makes us one to look like a cute kitty cat too. This makeup gives you the perfect feline shape.
- Prepare and prime your eyes before you begin.
- Apply eyeshadow over your eyelids.
- Apply a deep brown (or black) eyeshadow towards the outer corner of your eye. Next, apply the eye shadow to your crease area.
- With a black eye pencil, define your lower lash line. Continue drawing and trace a wing with the pencil.
- Use a magnetic eyeliner to line your upper lash line. Extend it along the traced area for more precision.
- Put on your magnetic lashes to finish.
