Dramatic pearl and black eye makeup

Just lately I’ve been absolutely loving wearing a really dramatic look on my eyes whether it be for daytime or evening. Peaches and Cream pigments are currently my number one choice for adding that gorgeous pop of light colour to my eyelids to contrast against the deep black shadow and liner flicks on the outer corner. So today, I wanted to show you my dramatic pearl and black eye makeup look! I’ve also been enjoying wearing a faux fringe which I create using my own hair. It’s so simple and easy to do, I’ve added the tutorial that I followed to get the look at the end of my post – enjoy!
