Natural Makeup For Dramatic People

When applying your makeup for the day you have a choice, Drama or Natural. However, for those ladies who just need a little more than most when it comes to color- those leaning on the deep side of the color spectrum- natural can come off as nonexistent or lackluster and flat (see our cheek drapes for a good way to find out which side you are on).

When applying your makeup for the day you have a choice, Drama or Natural. However, for those ladies who just need a little more than most when it comes to color- those leaning on the deep side of the color spectrum- natural can come off as nonexistent or lackluster and flat (see our cheek drapes for a good way to find out which side you are on).

So what to do? What to do?

Well here is a bit of a trick for those ladies who want the depth of color without looking like you are wearing anything.

Step 1. Decide what color undertones you want.

For this look, we went with a pink base color on the eyes (Observant) and a deep dusky red as the liner and outer V color (Revolutionary). We did this because we wanted the pretty girlish look of the pink on the eyelids but we also wanted to depth of a darker skin tone in a red undertone as a way to emphasize the eyes and pull the face upwards.

To do this simply apply your base color then with an edge brush like So Acute you take your darker color and go along the lash line moving your line up once you reach the outer tip of your eye line so that the line heads towards the end of your eyebrow.

Then after smudging the lash line with the same brush, lightly apply your foundation color over the eyeshadow. We know, that sounds ridiculous but it softens the eye making it appear more natural and lowers the value, as if the eyeshadow is the actual undertone of your eyes. Note that this will only work if you have a mineral foundation!

After doing this you will want to add a pop of color under your lower lash line and in your Inner V of your eye with a shimmery color or lighter color if you hate shimmer. We used Fuss Budget (the blush we used) to harmonize the eyes with the cheek color. Blush and bronzer are incredibly important in this look. Using your bronzer to contour your cheeks as well as adding it in the crease of your eye will really give your face a harmonious look.

Lastly, add your lip color (we used Le Rose with Let’s Get This Party Started for a bit of shine) and your mascara and you are good to go!

Yes it can really be that simple.
