Bold eyes on starlets and Hollywood sweethearts is certainly nothing new, but how they wear these deep or bright shadows and liners is something anyone should take note of when replicating.
We got the scoop from trained makeup artist Claudia Lamos-Vargas and got her top tips on how to pull off a bold, vibrant eye without looking overdone or clownish, and how to make it last all night.
1. Keep it simple
: “When your eyes are heavy on makeup, never go with a bright lip or too much blush or bronzer. A nude lipstick
, or a pale neutral gloss works perfectly to play up your eyes to the fullest.”
2. All about the basics
: “Before applying any of your eye makeup, always prep the area with your foundation
, and set it with powder. This base should be the perfect canvas!”
3. Start small
: “It takes a certain amount of courage to pull off a vibrant, statement eye
. If you want to play with a bold look or color, but aren’t ready for the full effect, try using a pigment or cream shadow as an eyeliner for that pop of color, and keep the rest of your look simple and demure.”
