    Red Face Bold Eye Makeup Looks?

    Do any of you know some bold night makeup looks, like what colors to use, ect?
    I'm invited to this party in a few nights and I need something bold, the party is from 11:00p.m. to 6:00a.m. Woot :]
    Any brands of makeup are ok, I need to buy some more anyways.
    My eye color is dark brown around the edges, light brown and green with some orange mixed in.

    For really, really bold looks I go with h.i.p. (http://www.drugstore.com/qxb46035_33...y_pigments.htm) They come in nice little sets of vivid color, and are available at most drugstores.

    Do you add any eye liner or anything with that? If so, black or deep blue?

    Re: Bold Eye Makeup Looks?

    It depends on eye color. I have lighter blue eyes and light skin, so I use lighter colors to dramatize things. This is a picture for a make-up course I took for theater, and I was supposed to personify a fish:

    I know it's extreme, it's for theater!
    However, in general I like to use eyeliner because it defines your eyes more (I only do the top lid). I really like dark blue, because it's slightly off the beaten path. I would sit down the day before the party and play around until you find a combination that makes you feel confident.

    P.S. I know that this is too heavy (in order for make-up to be clearly seen in the house theater make up needs to be really bold), but when going out I've used a much, much lighter version and I thought it came out nicely.

    That's a good looking fish! I think I'm definately going to play around with some different colors. Thanks!

    In Glamour, the two latest looks I've liked is that bright blue eyeliner, and peach shadow with purple liner. The second is not overly dramatic, but bright.
    Your eyes are similar to mine- just reversed- mine are browner in the middle and greener on the outside.
    I like good in burgundies, peaches, and purples...

    With dark brown eyes, try a blue liner, it really makes them pop. You can even stay with your brown shadows.

    I love blue eyeliner. I have really dark brown eyes (they look almost black sometimes), so I can get away with almost any eye color.

    Urban Decay's 24/7 liner pencils are the best ever. The blue color, Deviant, is the BEST blue for dark eyes!

    I know that MAC sells these water-proof liners called LiquidLast Liner. I went swimming and ALL of my make-up came off except for the liner. They make it in really vibrant colors, too.

    To live would be an awfully big adventure.

    Check out http://www.temptalia.com. This girl uses some really bold eye shadow. It might give you some ideas.

    You can take any of your eyeshadows and appy them with a wet brush to make them look bolder. You could do a smokey eye with different colors than the normal black, brown, gray... And add a funky mascara.
