Makeup Look of the Day: Dramatic

Jewel  (left and right) and with Kevyn Aucoin in NY, 2002

Jewel lends a fabulous face to the Dramatic look; her sharp features adapt really well.  I really like the balanced intensity of this look with the really dark eyes and light caramel lip gloss.  A lip shade any darker would be makeup overkill.  Let's leave makeup overkill in the '80s and never look back!  Also, this look doesn't call for any blush or bronzer since they would also detract from the eyes.

final result

Product Credits:

*Cover Girl & Olay Simply Ageless foundation 
*Stila concealer
*The Body Shop eye colour in Molten Bronze (Kevyn used a liquid metallic brown shadow but since I don't have any liquid shadows, I used this loose powder shadow which is also metallic brown and did the job pretty well)
*Jordana Kohl eyeliner in Onyx (99 cents at Walgreens. A black pencil eyeliner is a black pencil eyeliner. No need to spend $18 on one from a department store)
*Rimmel Lycra Lash Extender in Black
*Styli-Style lip pencil in Satin Rose (I'm going to have to find a better lip pencil. I'm not satisfied with this one. It just resists going on-- very dry)
*Mary Kay NouriShine lip gloss in Cream & Sugar
