Step by Step Eyeshadow Tutorial with Dramatic Black Liner and a Darkened Crease.

Two tutorials in one week, what!? Yeah I know, pretty unusual, but I thought it’d be a nice change from reviews all of the time. This particular look focuses mainly on the dramatic (thick) winged liner and the contrast against the precisely darkened crease and the contrasting light shade on the lids. This is more of a going out/nighttime look, as it’s quite dramatic for the daytime. You can take it up a notch by adding black liner to the waterline or adding a full strip of false lashes.

  1. I love the tutorial graphics you've been using lately! /random Thanks for taking us step by step, it really helps to see the steps happening instead of just reading about them.


  2. Wow! Beautiful! Our eye color is very similar, I will attempt to do that look soon. I don't usually use black, I use a charcoal or as dark of a gray I can, I think black is a bit much for my complexion and over all coloring, so I will try all that with a little change.

    Thank you for sharing!


  3. Thank you for your tutorials pretty lady.
    Question ~ What MAC eyeshadow would you use in place of Dior's Rosy Tan on this?
