Dramatic Makeup

dramatic-3Hello! I have a collaboration today with the lovely Sarah from @sarahbancroftmakeup. Sarah is so talented and I thought a nice Dramatic Makeup collaboration would be lots of fun! I used so many of my new Parlo Cosmetics eyeshadows. They’re so much fun and so pigmented! I will post swatches soon 😉

This look is just a reminder that you can wear any color you want any time of year you want! There are no rules in makeup!

dramatic-2Blue pigments are notoriously hard to blend. They can often be patchy and difficult to work with. That’s why when you are working with blue shadows you need to really prep your eyes. The last thing you want is a super sticky base for the shadow to cling to. Try building up the crease color slowly with a deep gray and then going in with the blue shadow


Crease: Brija Live for a Minute (light gray), Brija In My Pocket (navy)

Outer Corner: Parlo Cosmetics Coraline (bright blue)

Inner Corner: Parlo Cosmetics Coraline (bright blue)

Lid: Parlo Cosmetics Emerald City (mermaid teal)

Ball of Lid: Parlo Cosmetics Envy (acid green)

Inner Corner and Brow bone: Brija Aura Glow in Love (iridescent purple)


This is a typical halo placement that I think is so much fun to wear. It really opens up the eye. Aren’t these colors fun?! I really hope you guys enjoyed the look and definitely go say hi to Sarah on Instagram! She is so wonderful and so talented! @sarahbancroftmakeup
