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

Natalie Sunday, April 22, 2012
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.

Products Used:
MAC Groundwork Paint Pot (light brown cream eyeshadow, used as a base in step 1)
MAC Malt Eyeshadow (used in step 2 and step 8)
MAC Corduroy Eyeshadow (used in step 4 and step7)
MAC Black Tied Eyeshadow (used in step 5 and step 6)
Dior Rosy Tan (used the middle shade for a highlight in step 3)
Anastasia Shimmer Highlight Pencil (used in step 11)
Illamasqua Mislead Cake Eyeliner (used in step 9 and step 10)
Maybelline The Falsie's Mascara (used in step 12)
Andrea Medium Flare Individual Lashes (used in step 13)

Brushes Used:
Coastal Scents Concealer Brush
MAC 224 Tapered Blending Brush
Sigma Pencil Brush
Sigma Small Angle Brush
Coastal Scents Tapered Blending Brush
Coastal Scents Small Eyeliner Brush

  1. Very nice! I like how you didn't add anything to the waterline.

    1. Thank you! I actually rarely add anything to the waterline because applying liner to my waterline always irritates my eyes. I like this particular look without it. :)

    1. Definitely! Both days I did the look with my hair up in a wet bun which is why I didn't have full face photos, but I'll keep it in mind for next time. :)

    1. LOL that's always how I feel with darker eyes.. I tell that to everyone and they think I'm nuts. I suppose with darker eye makeup, all of your other makeup should be toned down so you don't indeed look like a drag queen. haha!!

      Thank you!!

    1. Thank you!! Aww, you can work it! You can just apply the crease color a little higher above your crease. It'll work ;)

  22. Wow this is stunning! I never thought much about Malt shadow, but now I feel like I have to have it. Maybe it's the groundwork paint pot that you applied under it that really makes it stand out? Either way, it's a gorgeous look.

    1. Thank you! I really like Malt, it's a good blending color and it's good for an all over wash of color. It's like a lighter version of groundwork but with a slight pink tone. It does have tricky undertones though and on some skintones it can look orangy. I've read some bad reviews where people have said it made them look ill, but the overall reviews for it are very good.

  37. 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!
