Dramatic Eyes

Calling all Drama Queens! If it is a dark and dramatic smokey eye that you desire for your photoshoot with Belle Boudoir, then this is a *smoking hot* option to consider. By keeping the inner corners of the eyes highlighted with a light shimmering eyeshadow, we are ensuring to keep the eyes BIG and OPEN even though most of the additional colors are very dark. The shape of the shadow is very structured which gives your artist the option of shaping your eyes to your desired shape (more lifted, elongated, etc.). I am a believer that when you choose dramatic eye makeup, you *must* finish your eyes with big, shapely, dramatic false lashes. Without them, your natural lashes with completely drown out and we definitely don’t want that!

In some situations it is ok to wear both a dark eye and a dark lip. But, because we wanted to keep a little hint of sweetness, we decided to go with a baby pink lip and soft pink cheek for the look below.

So remember, if it is drama you are going for, this is one look that should be on your pin-board of ideas!
