Expert Tip: Drama-Free Dramatic Eyes

When applying dramatic eye makeup, add extra loose powder under eyes. Then, once finished, simply brush loose powder, along with any eye color that has fallen from eye area, from the face.

Apply Midnight Star mineral eye color to entire eyelids and along lower lashlines. To create a dramatic, elongated eye effect, blend Coal mineral eye color along outer edges of eyes in a V-shape.
