DRAMATIC NYE MAKEUP LOOK

I chose to do this makeup look simply because I’m a lover of 60s eye looks. However, this one carries elements of futurist vibes to it. Only fitting I dedicate this look to NYE as I’d only ever wear such a daring makeup for this occasion lol.

This sharp, bold, dramatic eye look is perfect for NYE! The main focus is all on the eyes, so I’ve put together a step by step guide on how you can achieve this intense look with any eyeshadow colour of your choice.

EYE LOOK: STEP BY STEP GUIDE

  1. Since this look is dramatic and defined, I would recommend starting with the eyes first, then base later to prevent fall down. In that case, start on the brows with a light hand, you can always darken them if needed when the eyes are complete. Cover the lids with a thin layer of concealer or foundation to blank out the canvas of your eyes.
  2. Next, take a creamy black kohl Pencil and map out a line as if you’re outlining a thick cat eye, creating a > shape on the outer corner of your eye slightly above the crease of your lids. This doesn’t have to be perfect btw.
  3. Once that’s applied, grab the darkest shade of your main eyeshadow (in my case, a dark turquoise/green) and pat it right on top of the liner you applied and blend slightly downwards onto your eyelids.
  4. Next, take your favourite black liquid eyeliner and with a sturdy hand, create the same > shape on the outer corners of your eyes and follow through right above the crease. (Use the previous lines you made with the pencil as a stencil to get that sharp look.
  5. Once that’s dried, apply a lighter colour of your main eyeshadow (in my case, a light green shade) right onto the eyelids but stopping midway – only focusing on the inner corners of the eyes.
  6. You can intensify the look by applying black eyeshadow, underneath where you placed the liner, but this step is optional.
  7. Lastly, pick up a flat synthetic brush with some concealer and slowly clean up the edges of the liner to really get that sharp finish.
  8. Apply your blackest mascara or falsies, whichever works for you and you’re done!

SKIN:

I went for a more flawless look but with a natural approach. This is simply achieved by buffing in your favourite foundation, gently spot concealing with a pot concealer, highlighting and contouring with cream products and setting the face with a good face powder.
