Creating a dramatic and intense look with black, red, and smokey eyeshadows is a great way to make a statement. In this makeup tutorial, we’ll guide you through the steps to achieve a fierce and stylish eye makeup look.
Step 1: Prime the Base
Before applying any eyeshadow, make sure to prime your eyelids to create a smooth and even base. This will also help your eye makeup last longer without smudging or creasing. Apply a small amount of eyeshadow primer onto your eyelids and blend it evenly using your fingers or a brush.
Step 2: Apply Black Eyeshadow
Start by applying black eyeshadow onto your eyelids. Use a flat eyeshadow brush and pack the color onto your eyelids, making sure to blend out any harsh lines. You can also apply the black eyeshadow on your lower lash line for a more dramatic effect.
Step 3: Add Red Eyeshadow
Next, apply a red eyeshadow onto the outer corner of your eyelids. Use a blending brush to softly blend the red into the black, creating a gradient effect. You can also apply the red eyeshadow onto your lower lash line, focusing on the outer corner and blending towards the center.
Step 4: Create a Smokey Effect
To add a smokey effect to your eye makeup, take a black eyeshadow and blend it onto the outer corner of your eyelids using a fluffy blending brush. Make sure to blend it evenly and softly towards the crease of your eye.
Step 5: Apply Eyeliner and Mascara
For a more intense look, apply black eyeliner onto your upper lash line and waterline. You can also add false eyelashes for extra drama. Finish off your eye makeup by applying mascara onto your upper and lower lashes.
Step 6: Finish with Eyebrow and Lip Makeup
Complete your look by filling in your eyebrows and applying a bold lip color. A dark red or burgundy shade would complement the intense black and red eye makeup. You can also add some highlighter onto your cheekbones for a glowing effect.
With these simple steps, you can create a stylish and intense black, red, and smokey eye makeup look that will definitely turn heads. Play around with different shades and techniques to find the perfect look for you.
