Glossy Eye Makeup Looks, Tutorials and Application Tips

At , designers Dean and Dan Caten gave us a glam grunge/rock ‘n roll collection that is obviously targeted towards the young. Pieces included plaid shirts, preppy button-down shirts, slouchy cargo pants, miniskirts, boyfriend blazers, leather jackets and more. Plus models even strutted down the runway with huge shades, knit caps, a Starbucks coffee in hand, leather bags which are all so typical of what we see among the young Hollywood stars nowadays. Loves it!

So I did a tutorial on a natural glossy eye last week. Today I will cover a slightly more advanced version of the same look – a dramatic glossy eye.

Since the look involves the use of darker colors, it will require patience and practice to master it. Compared to the natural glossy eye, this also has a higher tendency to smudge. I highly suggest you save it for photoshoots or the runway.

Glossy eyes have always been one of my favorite looks. The subtle sheen the gloss creates can instantly brighten up your eyes and give off a fresh, luminous glow to your whole face. But while they are pretty to look at, they do have the tendency to crease and migrate. Besides, finding the right product to achieve the look and creating them itself can be tough. I have tried a few of the eye glosses out there and trust me, most of them have failed me miserably (and I don’t even have oily eyelids!!) So instead of investing in a gazillion products that claim to give you glossy eyes that last, I suggest you use good old Vaseline or a clear lip gloss. Below is a brief tutorial on how you can create a natural glossy eye. Hope you guys like it!
