Feeling daring? Sounds like it may be time to sport a dramatic eye makeup look! Maybe you’ve seen bold black eyes gracing the red carpet, or you want to mimic the coloured eyeliner you’ve seen circulating on your social media feeds. Whatever the case, dramatic eye makeup is a makeup trend that will never go out of style. Want to try one for yourself? Asma Hanif, an engineer by profession but a makeup artist by passion walks us through the perfect dramatic eyes tutorial. Try the look and soon your eyes will have more drama than a soap opera!

On my face

Skin prepping before putting on makeup is really essential and no matter your skin type, moisturising should be a non-negotiable part of prepping your skin for makeup application. My secret for a hydrated skin is Entice Cosmetics Bubblegum Priming Potion. This lightweight, brightening primer formula leaves my complexion with a radiant glow that lasts all day long, and is not only amazing for all skin types, but it’s also the perfect way to start off your makeup look. Then, for my colour correction I have used Glam Girl Artistry Correcting Palette. This has become one of the go-to products in my makeup bag. That’s because these colourful concealers can hide almost anything you’re unhappy about on your complexion. For a soft base, I have used Masarrat Misbah Silk Foundation in the shade Almond. This foundation has been a staple for me because it gives your skin a filtered and flawless look. It blurs the appearance of pores, and minimises imperfections. It has a natural dewy finish with instant coverage that lasts all day. To mask dark circles and other small blemishes visible on the skin, I have used Loreal Paris Infallible Full Wear Concealer. To help set foundation, control shine and smooth out blemishes and fine lines, I’ve used Kryolan Translucent Powder. To define my features, I have used Luscious Cosmetics Face Contour Kit. To add a flush of colour to the cheeks, I have used Morphe 8C Blush Palette. Finally for highlighting, I have used Ofra Cosmetics All of the Lights Highlighter.

On my eyes

To create dramatic eyes, I have used Morphe Palettes 35B and 39A. To create a thin cat eye, I have used Tarte Maneater Liquid Eyeliner. To lush up my eyelashes, I have used Essence Lash Princess Mascara. I’ve also used false lashes by Biya Lashes. To enhance my brows, I have used Masarrat Misbah Brow Palette. For the glitter on my eye lids, I have used Claire’s Chunky Glitter.

On my lips

To add colour and texture to my lips, I have used Colourpop Lippi Stix in the shade Lumiere.

· Never apply mascara on your false lashes

· Give at least 30 seconds to semi dry your lash glue

· Wet your brush with setting spray and apply loose glitters with that

· Always apply blush on after contour and highlighter to give your face a merged look

· Use highlighter again after using setting spray and try to polish your skin with a brush

· Loreal Paris Infallible Full Wear Concealer also doubles as a contour/highlight product. Shape your face by going one to two shades deeper to contour and one to two shades lighter to highlight and brighten.
