Extreme Eye Makeup: Made Easy

You don’t have to be a runway model, drag queen or entertainer to wear extreme eye makeup.  Sure, some of the examples we’re shown are pretty over the top, and might even seem next to impossible to carry off in our daily lives.  But I’m here to tell you, there’s a time and place for feather-adorned fake lashes, and it just might be your next girl’s night out.  You don’t need to wait for Halloween to sport a heavily cut crease or rainbow-hued  eyeliner, applying the same techniques for dramatic, notice-me eyes can take your daily routine to a whole new level of glamorous.


Mascara Gives You A High Definition

Mascara is certainly the fastest and easiest way to add oomph to your eye makeup routine with minimal fuss and expense, especially if you’re experimenting with colored mascara.  Select something that’s flattering to your natural color and hue, remembering that the same rules of eyeshadow color also applies to mascara.  For example, a red mascara might look fantastic on the tips of your lashes only, but may come across as garish when coating the entire lash.

Some other popular colors are:

  • Yellow
  • Purple
  • Blue
  • Orange
  • Red
  • Green

No matter what color you pick your eyes are going to stand out!


Glam It Up With Glitter

Glitter adds a bold and over-the-edge touch to eye makeup,yet it manages to remain feminine and pretty. A little goes a long way where glitter is concerned, so consider placement for the most impact.

  • Dot glitter on the inner corner of the eyes.  Not only will this make eyes appear wider and brighter, this simple addition is perfect for a party.
  • For starry-eyed look, place glitter on the extreme outer corner of your eye. This gives an uplifted winged effect.


Still want more drama?  No problem!  Try coating your eyebrows with a glue stick (yup, the kind from your kid’s school supplies) then coat with foundation.  Draw your eyebrows back on in any way you desire, then create even more drama by cutting your crease with black eyeshadow and following with practically any color eyeshadow you wish.  The dramatic black line, contrasting with your chosen color, will create a lot of depth and drama that’s sure to get noticed.


Finish the whole look with some false lashes, and the party can start as soon as you arrive – wherever that may be!  Extreme eye makeup can take some getting used to, especially if you don’t wear makeup often, don’t be afraid to experiment and have fun.
