3 Romantic Eye Makeup Tutorials

Looking to spice up your same-old makeup routine, but don’t know where to start? If you want to try something new, there are many different ways of making your eyes pop, just by using a different mascara or eye-shadow. Whether you’re into a winged-liner, smokey eye or even wearing falsies, here are three looks which are perfect for a romantic evening look.

1. Winged liner

A classic winged liner is the best place to start if you’re thinking of expanding your makeup look. Start off with fresh eyes, then lightly prime them so the eyeshadow will stay on for longer. Apply a neutral or flesh-toned colour across the entire lid – this will act as your base. To make the eye pop, add a light colour to the inner half of the eyelid, and a darker one to the outer half. Blend well so there are no harsh lines. As for the winged-liner, use a felt tip to get a precise flick and follow the natural curve of your eye.

2. Glamourous lashes

There is nothing sexier than a nude lip and lots of lashes. Taking inspiration from Kylie Jenner, run a soft brown shadow over the crease of the lid and blend out well with a fluffy brush. Curl your lashes then apply mascara and wait for it to dry completely. Trim the false lashes to your eye-shape, then add some glue and wait for it to get tacky before applying over the natural lash line.

3. Smokey and pink

This twist on a classic smokey eye is fun and flirty for a night out. Apply a primer then use a neutral toned eye shadow on the entire eyelid. Line the inner corner with a light pink colour, and the outer corner with a darker mauve – then blend out well to conceal any harsh lines. Apply lashings of mascara and even add a cat-eye flick if you’re feeling adventurous.
