Kevyn and Me: Dramatic

JEWELLLLLL!

JEWELLLLLL!

Hot damn, its drama time! When doing the tutorial the colors seem off from what’s pictured and what’s asked for. Jewel’s eyemakeup seems more gunmetal and black, whereas the description says it should be dark brown. So we did dark brown. What you’ll see here is a dark brown smokey eye. Let’s accept that and continue.

Just a bare canvas with a sweet turban.

Step 1: Conceal or maybe a tiny bit of foundation. Turban optional.

I figured everyone is sick of seeing my total bare faces. So this is concealed and a little bit of foundation. I’m trying to stay true to the instruction and not go full blown face makeup. But we all can’t have Jewel’s perfect skin. I have freckles and redness.

Step 2: Fill those brows!

For my brows I used my trusty NYX brow kit. I like having a selection of shades to chose from and I used the darkest one here. FOR THE DRAMA!!

Step 3: Metallic dark brown eye shadow to the eyelid and under.

I pack that stuff on. I do use eye primer almost always, but I assume most people do so I don’t mention it. Use whichever one works the best for you to get that eye shadow to pop. Kevyn asks that you use dark brown metallic liquid eyeshadow. I don’t own that since I’m not a world class makeup artist in reality – just in my head.

Step 4: Apply black kohl eye pencil to the upper and lower waterline.

Here I’m using a sephora kohl eye liner I picked up for maybe $3 on clearance. I bargain shop. But use whatever you like.

If I were doing this for a night out, I’d probably use something more waterproof. Everyone’s eyes are different, so use what works best for you! I pretty much will buy anything, but when it counts, waterproof all the way.

This is how I do my upper waterline. It's cute.

After you are done yanking on your lids, make sure you smudge that stuff in.

Step 5:  Smudge more black eyeliner around you eye. I tried to tightline around my eye and smudge with a brush.

Step 6: Black mascara those lashes. Do falsies for xtra dramaz.

I always curl my lashes and use mascara. YOU CAN NEVER TELL. We aren’t going to argue about this. I could wear falsies but ain’t nobody got time for that. Do what makes you feel awesome.

Step 7: Line with neutral lip liner and fill with caramel lip gloss.

You are done and drama filled. This look DID NOT call for blush. You know why? Because you are supposed to only be using concealer on your boo-boos. If you decided to break the rules and went ahead and used foundation, you’ll need to add a little blush or you’ll look like a dead person. If you want to look like a dead person, rock on.
