Dramatic evening eye makeup




Okay can we just take a minute to appreciate how amazing that eyeshadow looks? I am absolutely in love! I do love heavy eye makeup but truth be told, I haven't really been wearing makeup recently because I just couldn't be bothered. I'm totally happy to go out without makeup on so why bother? However for New Year's I obviously had to do something fun!

This look was based on a Shaanxo tutorial and I just changed the main eyeshadow colour. All I did was use some tape to get a sharp line and then I did an exaggerated winged liner and took a black eyeshadow to blend the outside corner of it into the crease to create a really dramatic cat eye. I then used MAC blue brown pigment all over the lid (it's the most beautiful thing in the world and I want to wear it every day now) and just put on some Ardell Demi Whispies, which are my absolutely favourite lashes at the moment! Afterwards I just ran a bit of a dark brown shadow along my lower lashline to define it and put a shimmery silver eyeshadow in my inner corners- simple yet sooo effective!
If you're wondering, my lipstick is Starkers by Illamasqua (favourite nude ever), I did my hair with the Babyliss Waving Wand and my necklace is from Primark.
