3 eye makeup looks every woman can master
Advertorial: They suit all eye shapes
Whether you’re after ways to subtly bring out your eyes during the day or add oomph for a night-time event, we’ve got you sorted. Here are three different ways to accentuate your peepers, plus the products you’ll need to achieve each eye makeup look.
A soft neutral look
This matte eyeshadow look is something that can be worn for all occasions. First, apply a soft neutral beige eyeshadow all over your eyelid from the Revlon ColorStay Not Just Nudes™ Shadow Palette in Passionate Nudes. Next, trace your upper lash line with Revlon ColorStay™ 2 In 1 Angled Kajal Eyeliner in Fig. The dual-ended tool features a soft-textured precision tip kohl on one side, which will give your lids some added intensity, and the smudge brush on the other end will work to blend the colour for a natural finish. Lastly, coat your top lashes evenly with a black mascara like Revlon Ultimate All-in-One™ Mascara in Blackest Black.
A bronzed smoky eye
If you’re looking for something a little more glamorous, a bronze smoky eye is the way to go. With Revlon Colorstay Not Just Nudes™ Shadow Palette in Passionate Nudes, apply the lightest shade all over your eyelid, then blend the second darkest shade into your socket and crease. Use a gold pigment on the inner corners of your eyes to make them pop. Then, it’s time to use your eyeliner to add extra dimension. Similar to the technique you’d do for the soft neutral look, start by applying Revlon ColorStay 2 In 1 Angled Kajal™ Eyeliner in Onyx across your upper lash line, but add extra intensity by doing it on lower lash line, too. For extra smokiness, layer the colour more than you would for the first look. The soft-textured kohl will add that extra hit of intensity for a smoky eye, then use the brush on the other end to blend it out for a naturally smoky finish. Finish with a coat of Revlon Volume + Length Magnified™ Mascara in Blackest Black over bare lashes.
A dramatic eye makeup look
Ready to make a statement? Try a dramatic eye look using a heavy application of black eyeliner. Get the look with Revlon ColorStay 2 In 1 Angled Kajal™ Eyeliner in Onyx. The precision tip will ensure some seriously sharp lines, while the creamy formula helps the pencil glide across your skin easily without tugging. First, etch a thick line along your top lash line, then draw a line upwards that extends from the outer corner of your eye in line with the curve of your lower lash line, up towards the edge of your brow. With one sweeping movement, draw another line back down at an angle to join your top lash line - fill in the mini triangle flick you’ve just created. If you’re after a winged shape with a softer shape, use the included smudge brush to blend the colour out. Finish by curling your lashes and apply two to three coats of Revlon Volume + Length Magnified™ Mascara in Blackest Black to the top lashes only.
