All-things-sparkling have always been every woman’s inspiration and admiration, after all we all know that the most sparkling of them, diamonds are considered to be “a girl’s best friend”. Rhinestones, studs, jewels have always been used by various fashion designers to adorn handbags, shoes and clothing pieces, however, ever since Christian Dior demonstrated the glamorous and luxurious side of rhinestone-encrusted bold blue and green eye makeup at Paris Fashion Week, the craving for sparkling eyes has been more than higher. Make sure you follow our Dior-inspired bejeweled eye makeup tutorial to draw all eyes on your peepers during the wedding party, Christmas Eve or any other special occasion you are getting ready for!
How to Create a Bejeweled Eye Makeup Look
To get this bold, yet much more modest version of the Dior crystallized eye makeup, you’ll need a good mood and the following makeup products and tools:
• A makeup base and a foundation
• eyebrow kit
• eye primer and a base
• eyeshadows in teal, white and three different shades of blue
• black and gold eyeliners
• a black eye pencil
• black mascara
• false eyelashes
• a lipstick in a neutral color
As you feel ready, let’s go on with the Dior-inspired bejeweled eye makeup tutorial. Follow the steps!
Step 1: Once you have washed and cleansed your face, apply a toner and a makeup base afterwards. Take a foundation brush and apply the foundation according to your skin type and tone, making sure you create a uniform look. Take you favorite blush tone and add some color to your cheeks, making sure you are applying the blush according to your face shape.
Step 2: As you already have the base, it’s time to shift your attention to the eyes, to the brows more specifically. Contour your eyebrows using the brow kit in a color close to your natural eyebrows. Here, we have used an E.L.F. brow kit in dark.
Step 3: To make your eye makeup last and look more perfect, first apply a primer all over your eyelids (Too Faced Eyeshadow Insurance). Next, apply a base (NYX Jumbo Pencil Milk).
Step 4: It’s high time to play with colors! Apply a teal eyeshadow color to the inner corners of the eyes (Bourjois Smokey Eyes). Afterwards, put a blue color on the center of your lid (Blue color from the Sleek Sunset Palette).
Step 5: Now, take a blue eyeshadow that is a tone darker than the previous one (Coastal Scents Smokey Palette). Create a V shape with it on the outer corner of the eye.
Step 6: Apply a navy blue eyeshadow to the crease line and blend it with the rest of the colors (Coastal Scents Smokey Palette). With a light blue tone blend the navy color well. We have taken the light blue tone from the same palette, as the navy one.
Step 7: To brighten up your eyes and make them bigger, apply a white eyeshadow with blue undertones to the inner corners of your eyes (Bourjois Smokey Eyes).
Step 8: Take the navy blue tone that you used on your lid and highlight your lower lash line with it. Blend it with a shimmery blue tone (Coastal Scents Smokey Palette).
Step 9: Apply some white color under your eyebrows (Coastal Scents Smokey Palette).
Step 10: Apply the black eyeliner according to your eye shape (Sleek Ink Pot Eyeliner). Draw the second, golden line above the black line on the outer corners of the eyes. We have used the Farmasi Eyeliner in gold.
Step 11: Line your waterline with a black eye pencil.
Step 12: Apply two coats of black mascara and then the false eyelashes (Red Cherry #43).
Step 13: Using the false eyelash glue, stick three orange rhinestones on your lower lid.
Step 14: Since your eye makeup is quite attention grabbing, leave your lips nude. Apply some light pink tone. We have used the Make-up Atelier Paris Lipstick Palette 05 Oriental Beige color.
As you see, our bejeweled eye makeup is much more wearable than the heavily crystallized one demonstrated during the Dior fashion show. This gives you the opportunity to wear this lovely makeup outdoors on a romantic date, at a party or carnival. Stay tuned for more makeup inspiration ideas and cool makeup tutorials!
