Neutral Eye with Dramatic Liner Look

As I mentioned in my Technique post on how to create winged/cat eyeliner, I usually like wearing a single wash of a neutral color on my entire lid when I wear dramatic liner. That way the liner is the focus of the eye makeup as it really stands out against simple background. However, dramatic liners can look nice with more eye shadow colors too. Here’s a look using a few shimmery neutral colors with a thicker, longer wing.


EYES
– Too Faced Shadow Insurance (to prime lid)
– MAC E/S in “All That Glitters” (apply as a wash on entire lid — click here to read more about this simple technique)
– Inglot E/S AMC Shine in “35″ (tear duct, blending/fading out along inner corner)
– MAC E/S in “Mulch” (outer V; blend along outer half of crease)
– MAC E/S in “Carbon” (using a small angled brush like MAC 266, create the outline of the wing — click here for more details on the winged/cat eyeliner technique)
– Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel in “77″ (upper lash line and wing)
– Make Up For Ever Aqua Smoky Lash Waterproof Extra Black Mascara (two coats on top lashes)
– Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara in “01 Black” (one coat on bottom lashes)

CHEEKS
– Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base (contour)
– MAC Sheertone Blush in “Blushbaby” (on apples)

LIPS
– MAC Lip Pencil in “Cherry”
– MAC L/S in “Lady Danger”

I’m still trying to figure out how to do the winged/liquid eyeliner. I try to find step-by-steps or tutorials on: http://www.taaz.com/trends/trends.html for different makeup looks. This look is beautiful!
