Arabic / Kim Kardashian double-winged liner eye makeup



Here is a dramatic Arabic look that I have seen pictures of Kim Kardasian wearing something like it and it would be great for a night out.
Always put the shadow base on first, all over top and thin line on bottom. Next put the medium shade on the inner three quarters of eyelid, just up to the crease and also thin line under eye on inner half. Next with a blender brush you put the dark brown in the crease and outer corner and make sure its very well blended. Then you take a white eye liner and put some on the inner corner of the eye this really brightens up the eye and really makes you look wide awake) and then take an ivory shadow and blend it into the white to make sure its very well blended, also then take the ivory and blend it under the eyebrow and itno the dark brown. Also to make it even more dramatic use a blender brush and put some black shadow n the outer corner.
 For the liner you make it very thin on the inner corner and then start making it thicker just after the pupil (different on different peoples eyes but usually around the same spot.) Make sure it slants up on the outer corner and put some white pencil liner under so that you will really see the two black lines separated. With a small angle brush blend black shadow on the edge of the liner so its not a harsh line. Under the eye put the same black liner right under the lash line from right under the pupil to just before the other line ends, never touching the other liner. With the dark brown shadow and a small angle brush blend the edge of the bottom liner so it doesnt look too harsh. On the outer corner of my eyes i used fake lashes, just on the outer corner though so it didnt look too fake.
Just like with all makeup looks, its always best to stay in the same colour family with all your makeup so nothing clashes. Since the shadows are all warm i made sure to keep my blush and lip gloss warm aswell. It would kind of clash if i used anything with a cooler tone, like something more purple.

Medium: Cream/beige colour
Crease: Cover Girl -Brown smolder, Cover Girl -Black
Highlight: Ivory
Liner: Maybelline creme liner blackest black

Light smokey eyes


In this look I used mostly all natural colours, the only one that wasn't really natural was the highlight on the inner corner and under the brow but you don't want that to look too fake under the brow so dont put it on too heavy there.
Heres the colours I used and where I used them:

Inner three quarters of eye lid up to crease: French vanilla
Outer quarter up to crease and in crease: Cappuccino
Just outer corner top: Black or dark grey
Outer corner on bottom: Thin line of waterproof black pencil liner in/just under lash line with Cappuccino shadow shaded on top
Inner half on bottom: French vanilla
Inner corner: White eye liner plus soft ivory highlight shadow over top to make it softer, or make the liner softer with a q-tip.
Under brow: Soft ivory highlight
Top liner: Make it thicker from the outer coloured part of your eye but make it get thicker gradually. Its nice to put a bit of black shadow on the edge of the liner with a small angle brush after to make it look like a softer line. Make sure the liner is very thin on the inner corner of the eye.
Brows: Soft brown pencil
Mascara: Black on top and bottom, plus fake lashes just on outer corner of eyes

Make sure your blush/bronzer doesn't go in any closer than a line drawn down from your pupil
Just under cheek bone and up to temple: Bronzer
Right along cheek bone but NOT on temple: Roseflower blush

Powder: merle norman mineral powder

Lips: Milk chocolate satin lip pencil

Makeover

This is my beautiful friend who let me take some pictures of her after I  had fun putting a bit of makeup on her. The first picture is a before picture, and of course, the next three are after we had way too much fun. I used golden brown colours to bring out her blue eyes more, you cant tell as much in the pictures but it really did make her eyes look a lot more blue. I also made sure to keep the rest of her makeup in warmer tones too, i didn't want to add any pinks or purples(anything with cool blue tones)because it could clash with the golden/copper tones on her eyes.
Inner three quarter of eye: Gold
Outer corner and Crease: Dark Brown(Make sure it's well blended)
Just outer corner: Black
Highlight and Inner corner: Sheer Ivory
Under eye: Outer half, put a small bit of black liner just under lash line then blend dark brown shadow into liner to soften the line. Inner half, gold shadow.
Liner-For the top eyeliner, it should be quite thin on the inner corner and start getting thicker around or just after the pupil and slightly slant up at the outer corner of your eye. Also I like to soften the edge of the liner by taking a small angle brush and putting a just bit of black shadow along it.

Great look for blue eyes (still good for other eye colours too)

Here is a makeup look that im showing the steps for so its a little easier to follow
Unless you're going clubbing, eye shadows should sort of stay in the same colour family. Pick a medium shade and a darker shade of the a similar colour and a highlight in ivory usually works with most colours.
-With a normal shadow brush put the medium shade on the inner three quarters of your eyelid, just up to your crease and not all the way to the outer corner. Also put a thin amount of the medium shade under your eye just on the inner half.
-With more of a blending brush put the dark shade in the outer corner and blend into the crease and lash line, make sure everything is blended well because it can look quite bad when you see harsh lines. Also put a thin amount of the dark shade under the eye on the outer corner, blended into the medium shade. For a more dramatic look, put some pencil liner just under the lash line and then blend the dark shadow into the liner.
-For the top eyeliner, it should be quite thin on the inner corner and start getting thicker around or just after the pupil and slightly slant up at the outer corner of your eye. Also I like to soften the edge of the liner by taking a small angle brush and putting a just bit of black shadow along it.
-I couldn't show this on the sketch but like it shows on the picture, it's always nice to have highlight on your eyes. Highlight is a little bit dramatic in this picture bit it does look nice when it's more subtle also. I just put the highlight on the inner corner, blended it into the medium shade a little and under the eyebrow blended into the dark shade.
-When you want a more dramatic look add a little bit of black shadow to the outer corner shading on lash line and crease and making sure it all blends together well. the bottom picture has just a little bit of black on it but you can see where it is darker.
Hope this helps!

I know I dont have blue eyes but this look does bring out blue eyes so so well, even though I have green eyes I still love wearing these colours! For blue eyes coppers, golds, and bronze colours really makes their blue eyes stand out because its opposite on the colour wheel. These colours look great on other people too though! Well here are the colours i used: The Body Shop -Chocolate(dark), The Body Shop -Golden Paprika(medium), The Body Shop -gold eye shimmer(just a little bit blended with neutral ivory highlight), Cover Girl -Shimmering Onyx(outer corner)

These colours are good for other peoples eyes too but it will really make green eyes pop. Here are the colours i used: Light pink one from a set(Medium),  Highlight from a set, Merle Norman -Bordeaux(Dark), Cover Girl -Shimmering Onyx(Black). Merle Norman creme eyeliner -black, Fake lashes just on outer half of lashes.

Retro look

Here is a look that I think is kinda retro with the thick black liner and bold red lipstick. The liner should be quite thin on the inner corner on most people it should start getting thicker just around or just after the pupil. I also made sure to make to my cheeks rosy
with a red tone blush.
Here's what I used:
Inner three quarters of eye lid up to the crease: Covergirl -French Vanilla
Outer corner and in crease: Merle Norman -Cappuccino
Just outer corner: Covergirl -Black
Under brow and on inner corner of eye: Almay -Mother Of Pearl (for a more dramatic look, which I did, put a white eye liner on inner corner of eye first and then blend with the light shadow)
Under the eye: Put a small amount of waterproof pencil liner right under lashes just on outer corner, then with a small angle brush blend the cappuccino shadow into to liner only on the outer half of the eye.
Inner half of under the eye: Cover girl -French Vanilla
Plus I added fake eyelashes just to the outer corner for more of a cat-eye look

Peacock eyes











Here is a dramatic look for a night out. I wore this for halloween when I dressed like a peacock but it could also be fun for going out.
Heres what I used:
-Inner corner, blended toward the middle a bit(top and bottom): shimmery gold
-Middle of eye(top and bottom): turquoise                   
-Outer corner(top and bottom) and in the crease: dark blue, plus a bit of purple blended on top edge of dark blue that is in the crease.
- Lightly shimmery white/neutral highlight blended under brow
 Like always, I made the eyeliner on top gradually thicker on the outer corner. This gives the eye a bit of a cat eye look and lifts up the outer corner a little.
On the bottom I put a little bit of liner on the outer corner and made sure to blend it with the dark shadow, then I put the liner on the inner rim to make it even more dramatic.

Audrey Hepburn look

Here's a look with a sort of Audrey Hepburn style to my eyes. She usually had quite thick eyeliner on top and just a little bit of the dark shadow under the eye, just on the outer corner. I put the shadow on the bottom with a small slanted brush and made sure to blend it so it doesn't look too dramatic. From pictures I've seen it looks like she usually used more natural colours like browns and neutrals. For this look i used natural warm colours for all the makeup i was wearing so it would all blend nicely together.

The colours for eyeshadow i used are:
~Medium -french vanilla by covergirl
~dark -matte dark brown
~highlight -matte white (put on lightly so its not too white)
~just a tiny bit of black shadow blended on outer corner of eyelid

Dark purple night look





















Here's a look that I think is good for going out on a date or just a night out with friends. The colours I used are really good for green eyes because it will make the green stand out a lot more since purple is opposite on the colour wheel. I used different shades of the same colour because its always best to not use different colours that will clash. I also made sure to keep the rest of my makeup in the same colour family, warm tones mixed with cool tones could just make your makeup look a little confusing. well anyways, here's what i used:
~medium shade(on the inner three quarters of eyelid, just up to crease of eye lid)-light lavender
~dark shade(on outer corner and blended into the crease)-dark purple
~highlight(under eyebrow blended into the dark in the crease and on the inner corner)-lightly shimmery white
~plus a bit of black shadow just on the outer corner
