8 Dramatic Eye Makeup Looks for Bold Eyes
DRAMATIC EYE MAKEUP LOOK #1: METALLIC RAINBOW EYE SHADOW
Rainbow eye makeup is an undeniably fun (and colorful!) makeup trend we can totally get behind. Of course, using all the colors from the rainbow in your eye makeup look is anything but subtle. If you’re ready to step outside your comfort zone, follow the steps below to create a metallic rainbow eye makeup look that’s guaranteed to turn heads!
Step #1: Set the lines. Gently place a bit of adhesive tape in a diagonal fashion along the outer corner of your eye, going up toward your temples. This will serve as a guide and is a foolproof method for ending up with precise, defined lines when your look is complete.
Step #2: Create your base. Start by coating your lids in a bright, metallic purple hue.
Step #3: Color your crease. Pop a hot pink eye shadow into your crease. Use a fluffy brush to blend the color up and outward (along your tape) toward your temples. Then, deepen the look by applying a dark, metallic purple shade to the outer “V” of your eye, extending outward.
Step #4: Highlight with copper. You may be used to highlighting your inner corner with white or nude eye shadow, but for this dramatic eye makeup look, you’ll be using a metallic copper shadow to do so. Apply the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Crushed Foils Metallic Eye Shadow in Diamond Dust to your inner corners, then drag the same shadow along your lower lash line.
Step #5: Get green with envy. Apply a metallic green eye shadow over the copper you just applied on your lower lash line, focusing the color on the outer two thirds.
Step #6: Wing it. Use the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Liquid Eyeliner in Black to line your eyes and create your sharpest wing.
Step #7: Add some blue. We’re not done yet! Glide a metallic blue pencil eyeliner over your black liner, stopping when you reach the outer corner of your eye, so the wing is still black. Then use the same metallic blue pencil eyeliner to line your waterline.
Step #8: Coat your lashes. Complete your dramatic eye makeup look with a few coats of the L’Oréal Paris Unlimited Lash Lifting and Lengthening Washable Mascara in Blackest Black. All done!

What’s more, a negative space cut crease offers an even more dramatic, modern twist on the look. Learn how to create one in our article, How to Create a Negative Space Cut Crease.

Orange you glad orange eyeshadow is trending? We sure are! If you want an easy dramatic eye makeup look to try, swipe an orange hue onto your lids.
DRAMATIC EYE MAKEUP LOOK #6: WINGED EYELINER

Pair it with nude eye shadow for a standout look or play up the intensity with a smokey eye. If you’re a newbie to winged eyeliner, be sure to grab the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Flash Cat Eye Waterproof Brush Tip Liquid Eyeliner, which features a removable wing stencil for perfectly precise wings every time.

HOW TO PULL OFF DRAMATIC EYE MAKEUP
Now that you have a few dramatic eye makeup options to choose from, you may be wondering how to pull off makeup with such intensity. Follow these four simple tips, and you’ll be rocking dramatic eye makeup with finesse.
DRAMATIC EYE MAKEUP TIP #1: KEEP IT MATTE
If you want to rock a dramatic eye, it’s best to keep the rest of your makeup look on the simple side. Opting for matte finishes when it comes to your foundation, bronzer, face powder, blush, and other face makeup products will prevent your overall makeup look from appearing too over-the-top, while also allowing your dramatic eye makeup to be the center of attention. Here are a few of our favorite matte makeup products to try:
Foundation: For your foundation, try the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation. This foundation has a demi-matte finish, giving you the shine-free appearance you’re going for without looking too flat. The formula provides medium coverage, goes on smooth, and is lightweight. Apply it using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender for an effortless, flawless-looking complexion.
Face powder: From the same line, the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Powder creates a perfect matte finish that is long-lasting. The formula absorbs excess oil, reduces shine, and is lightweight.
Blush: Not only is it best to sport a matte finish when it comes to blush, but using a more subtle, neutral color for your flush will complement your dramatic eye rather than clash with it. Go for a soft peachy hue like the L’Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Fruit-Scented Blush Makeup in Bashful.
DRAMATIC EYE MAKEUP TIP #2: DON’T SKIP PRIMER
If you’re striving to pull off a dramatic eye makeup look, you definitely do not want to skimp when it comes to using eye primer. A primer will prep your eyes for your intense look and keep it lasting all day long. The last thing you want to happen when wearing a bold eye is to have unintentionally smudged liner or messed up mascara!
To really seal the deal, after finishing your makeup, close your eyes and spritz your face with a setting spray in an “X” and “T” formation. The L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray will give you a “just applied” makeup look all day (and night) long.
DRAMATIC EYE MAKEUP TIP #3: USE A LASH PRIMER
Just as eye primer is super important when it comes to rocking a dramatic eye makeup look, so is lash primer. A lash primer will help prep your lashes for mascara while also adding volume and length to your lashes—more than you can achieve with mascara alone. Apply the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Primer or the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara Primer/Base before coating your lashes in your favorite mascara.
DRAMATIC EYE MAKEUP TIP #4: SKIP THE LIP COLOR
While balancing a bold lip color and dramatic eye is totally possible, if you don’t do it right, it can prove to be detrimental to your overall look and leave you looking more like a clown than a makeup goddess. So, instead of facing the risk of crossing that fine line, skip the lip color when you want to pull off dramatic eye makeup. If you do want to wear a bit of color on your lips, opt for a neutral, natural-looking shade that won’t take away from your statement eye. Try any shade of the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Ultra Matte Highly Pigmented Nude Lipstick or opt for a tinted lip balm.

Every wardrobe has certain must-haves to keep dressing streamlined and easy. Jewelry essentials follow much the same rules of a capsule wardrobe—the best jeans, sweater, T-shirt, jacket, etc., translate to certain classic and timeless jewelry essentials.
The perfect diamond studs and chain necklace are just as big of a fashion crutch as blue jeans and a white T-shirt. Narrow enough to keep getting dressed stress-free while also keeping you looking top-notch. Think of this as a foundational buy you can turn to daily, but one that still leaves room for those special purchases to give your look personality.
Below, our guide to the 10 pieces of classic, timeless jewelry that will never lead you astray.
There’s a reason the stud is your first earring. Besides the whole piercing process, it simply goes with everything. They add an easy touch of sparkle that can be worn no matter the occasion—gym and pool included.

Wearing more than one ring on a finger can take some strategy. Do they fit snuggly on top of each other? Do they add too much bulk to your digit? A simple gold band is a great starting point but better yet, opt for an already stacked multi-ring style that will do all the work for you.
Phillips House Enchanted Sash pinky ring
$1,550 AT PHILLIPS HOUSE
Spinelli Kilcollin Nimbus ring
$2,900 AT MATCHESFASHION
Playing with the gold and silver hues in jewelry is fun but so is the blue of a sapphire or the deep red of a garnet. A colored stone accessory is the easiest way to add a bit of dimension to your all-neutral ensemble or bring out the flecks of green in your eyes.

Ear rings are one of the most popular accessories for women around the world. These small pieces of jewelry can enhance any outfit and add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any look. Ear rings are versatile and come in a wide range of styles, materials, and designs, making it easy to find the perfect pair for any occasion.
Ear rings have been worn for thousands of years, with evidence of their use dating back to ancient civilizations like the Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans. Initially, ear rings were made from materials like bone, shells, and wood. Later, precious metals like gold and silver were used to create more intricate designs.
Today, ear rings come in a variety of styles, from simple studs to bold hoops, elegant drop earrings, and trendy tassel earrings. They can be made from materials like gold, silver, platinum, and various types of gemstones, as well as costume jewelry made from plastic, beads, or other materials.
Ear rings are not only a fashion accessory but can also have cultural or symbolic significance. In some cultures, ear rings are worn as a symbol of marital status, while in others, they are seen as a sign of wealth or social status. In addition, ear rings can also be used to express personal style, with some women choosing to wear ear rings that reflect their personality or interests.
When choosing ear rings, it is important to consider your face shape, as certain styles can enhance or detract from your facial features. Round faces, for example, are best suited for longer, dangling ear rings, while square faces can be enhanced with hoop or round earrings. Similarly, it is important to consider your outfit and the occasion when selecting ear rings, as different styles can complement or clash with your overall look.
In addition to style and design, it is also essential to consider the quality of ear rings when purchasing them. Quality ear rings will be made from high-quality materials and will be sturdy and durable, ensuring that they last for years to come. It is also essential to pay attention to the closure of the ear rings, as a secure closure can prevent them from falling out or getting lost.
In conclusion, ear rings are a versatile and fashionable accessory that can enhance any outfit and express personal style. With a wide range of styles, materials, and designs, it is easy to find the perfect pair of ear rings for any occasion. When selecting ear rings, it is important to consider your face shape, outfit, and the occasion, as well as the quality of the ear rings, to ensure that you get the most out of this beautiful accessory.
