Dramatic eye makeup looks
It’s time to ditch the regular smokey eye makeup and try something new, i.e., the under-smoke. The under-smoke makeup focuses on the bottom lash line instead of the eyelid, which brings in the drama. You can go for deep to dark eyeshadow shades such as brown and black to create a luxurious look. All you need to do is layer lots of dark eyeshadow shades under the eyes.
2. Shimmer and shine
One of the most dramatic glam makeup ideas is to opt for metallic eyes. The shimmer and shine eye makeup look is something that suits every occasion, from a party to a wedding and more. Simply swipe a metallic eyeshadow shade of your choice all over your eyelids and add some shimmer on top.
3. Inner eye highlight
The inner eye highlight is a great choice to accentuate your features and make your eyes look bigger. You can achieve this eye makeup art by using a bright and poppy eyeshadow shade such as orange and highlighting the inner corners of your eyes effectively. Pull the eyeshadow from the inner corner of your upper lash line to the inner corner of your lower lash line and you are all set.
4. Colour block
Bring your creativity to life by playing around with more than one or two colours. Use green and pink eyeshadow shades to colour your eyelids and line your lower lash line with blue eyeliner. This dramatic eyeliner makeup is perfect for daytime outings.
The negative space eyeliner is the simplest way to level up your basic eye makeup as this look invites more room for you to play with your makeup. To create this dramatic eyeliner look, draw the classic cat-eyeliner along your lash line. Further, pull the line back at the outer corner of your liner and draw it towards the inner corner of your eyelid. Leave some space between both the lines and use your favourite eyeshadow to add colour to the space.
6. Half and half
Feeling blue on one eye and pink on the other? Go for it right away. Colour your left eyelid with pink eyeshadow and your right with the blue one. Elevate and enhance your eyes by using kajal on the lower waterline.
7. Stars and flowers
Colour your eyelids with a nude eyeshadow. Then, use the waterproof eyeliner to draw small stars, flowers, hearts or any other shapes of your choice around your eyes. Finish off this dramatic eye makeup art with mascara to make your eyes pop.
