Dramatic Glitter Eye Tutorial

Hello Beauty Babes, and happy Makeup Monday to you! Makeup Monday is a fun linky party dedicated to all things beauty. ♥ If you are a beauty blogger/vlogger/instagrammer please feel free to link up any and all of your posts related to Makeup & Beauty!

Today for Makeup Monday, I have a stunning look to share with you! I wore this look on Valentines day, and got so many compliments. People literally looking at me in awe. The waitress admitted to not wanting to take her eyes off me. haha I felt oh so glamorous!  I loved it so much, I decided I would create a video tutorial for you gals to show you how I created it... See that video below.

Yes, this look is super dramatic, and may even be a little scary for some of you! When I first had the idea for this look and started putting the makeup on, even I was nervous it wouldn't turn out! I was looking all kinds of crazy before the look was completed... As you will see in the video! BUT the look comes together VERY nicely when its complete...

My advice for you, when creating a dramatic eye look is work with your own eye shape. The way I apply eye shadow on my own eyes works great for my eye shape. You may need to bring your crease higher or lower... Or add more or even less shadow than I do. Just play around until you find what works and looks best with your eye shape. Also, I personally like these colors on me, but you can also use neutral colors too! Use what ever colors you feel comfortable with, or colors you think look best on YOU! 

Ok so if you are interested in how to get this dramatic glitter eye look, I did a full video tutorial for you!
Details on this look:
