Super Quick, Easy and Affordable Dramatic Eye Look (By Daisy Drops)

Today's post was written by Lauren, of Daisy Drops. I have mentioned her on my blog so many times, so I'm sure you already know this, but I absolutely adore Lauren and her blog, so if you're not following her, you totally should. I personally think Lauren has a gift for makeup, so I'm sure you're going to enjoy this tutorial as much as I did.

Super Quick, Easy and Affordable Dramatic Eye Look

I often find myself rushing my make up when I'm getting ready for a big occasion (such as my cousins wedding) so I end up not being happy with the end look. I've been experimenting with ways to speed up the getting ready process so that it is as stress free as possible. I'm a huge fan of eye make up, I feel like it can completely alter your overall make up look, so I've found a way to create the dramatic eye make up I love in under 10 minutes.

It's super quick, easy and affordable as you only use 3 products and 1 brush. The 3 products I used are the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On & On Bronze, L'Oreal Superliner Perfect Slim and Maybelline Falsies Mascara. To apply the eyeshadow I used the Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush which comes in the Starter Kit.

To create the dramatic end to the eyeshadow you're going to want to use tape, this is an optional step but I think it gives the best results. Since the colour tattoo is cream based, a primer isn't essential as cream based shadows tend to last long on the lid anyway, but if you want to use a primer you can.

So to create this look you're going to want to apply the Colour Tattoo using the Base Shadow Brush. I like to pat it on and keep building it up until I get the desired effect, then I blend it using my fingers and remove any shadow from places I don't want it to be using a cotton bud. You then want to apply liquid liner just above the upper lash line and wing it out, I use the L'Oreal Superliner as it is really easy to use since the tip is super thin. This takes quite a lot of practice (I'm still not very good at it) so be patient. Finally, you want to apply mascara, I love the Maybelline Falsies Mascara as it makes my lashes extremely long and voluminous. You can add false lashes if you want too, but I'm so bad at applying them so I just use mascara.

As you can tell this is quite easy to do and is super quick, so is great for when you're in a rush to leave the house. All the products I used are drugstore products, so it's also a really affordable look.

I hope you like this dramatic eye make up look. What products do you use when you're in a rush? Share them in the comments below.
