Guest Post: Dramatic Eyes by Aqeela

Want guidance on this look?
 Here's everything I used to create it.




Here you can see I started off with my lightest colour first. 
I’ve also used this colour around the inner corner of the eye, then my main colour, finishing with the darkest colour. As I work my way towards the outer corner, I have taken the eye shadow above the crease. At the edges I used a slanted brush to get a neat finish. 
Once I had applied all the colours of my choice I used an eye shadow blending brush and blended the colours together. 

Here you can see how  I have applied my eye liner.
  I used MAC Fluidline in ‘Blacktrack’. 
I’ve gone for the double winged eyeliner look as I find when I am doing dramatic eyes this helps create more drama. I’ve also applied a highlighter to my brow bone; it’s amazing how much highlighters can make a difference! 
I finished the eyes off by applying mascara.


For the cheeks I have used the contouring method by highlighting in a 'C' shape starting from above the eyebrow and leading onto the cheekbone. 
Below the cheek bone I have applied the my blusher.

  
Finally on the lips I used Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter in ‘Shortcake’. 
That’s the look complete, hope you enjoyed it. 


What are your thoughts on this look? 
Be sure to send me a picture if you recreate it!

Purples have been my fav but also at the same tym one of the hardest to find the right shade in, I tried many most I dnt even use I have 3 favs on this one I used violet by MAC, but MUA also do a gorgeous purple only costs a pound! my third fav purple is by I'D. for eyeliner I use MAC Fluidline and apply with a thin point brush, using eyeliner pens are a lot easier or a slanted brush if ya just startin to get the hang of it.
